How good is MIT-PGP 2.5?
When 2.5 was first announced a few weeks ago (with the non infamous
keyserver announcement), there was some concerns expressed over the
political manipulations of the new program and thus, the overall security
of the code. To this date I haven't seen any additional commentary on
that subject, and I figure that before I recommend locally changing to
2.5, I'd like to find out what exactly was changed from the standpoint of
the algoritms and the overall safety of them.
No flame please, but I am not a math-oriented person, so please keep it
in pseudo-english :-)
