And GnuPG also support this since 2.1 (last November) - it is not yet in
the standard but several people started to use it and I do my commit
signatures with such a key.  Plain ECC using NIST and Brainpool curves
are also supported since 2.1 (RFC-6637).

Key creation using newer algos is hiden behind --expert for the sole
reason that it is better to first have software understanding ECC
deployed before most people start to create these keys.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
