Do you have any idea why we are still using GPG with RSA cryptography when elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) has been available since 2015-ish?*
I get we probably were very afraid of compatibility with old systems and may have issues, but I'm pretty sure we are mostly OK.
@greypilgrim is it?
gnupg is usually used by individuals to encrypt and sign communications, not as many enterprise or corporation use it as a norm. I mean, is way different than what sshd using RSA for authentication which is highly used by corps.
Besides big orgs like debian I'm not aware of places where is broadly used.
@esparta Ah. I guess I was not speaking to the context of gnupg.
