Nope, you won't see changes here - at least not for the standard NIST or
Brainpool curves.  The problem with ECC is that the software supporting
ECC is not not yet widely deployed and thus people either can't verify
your messages or not send you encrypted messages.  This is also the
reason why ECC requires the --expert option.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
