RFE : enable Eliptic Curve algorithm in libgcrypt
Last modified: 2013-11-10 01:59:41 EST
Description of problem:
Until very recently, Eliptic Curse cryptography was banned from Fedora because it is/was legally encumbered, and thus support for it carefully removed from libgcrypt and other sofware. However, the restriction has been lifted for openssl, which is now shipping with ECC enabled, thus my understanding is libgcrypt can use it as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
