Another draft coming your way.
I'm sending out today what I hope is really, really the last draft of the
spec. I've added in Tom Zerucha's comments here about my last
forgetfulness, added in the headers that Lutz pointed out, and dealt some
more with the issue of Elgamal signatures.
I've spoken to a number of people on both sides of the Elgamal issue. While
it's true that DSS produces shorter signatures than Elgamal, and is
potentially faster, there's no evidence that Elgamal signatures are
insecure, provided that the proper care has been taken. I went over all the
discussion that I put in for the -04 draft, and made a tweak.
The relevant diffs will be coming in another message.
Note that while I'm really happy to fix any other problems someone finds,
it's way too late to start a controversy. I expect that draft -05 is it,
short of fixing an important typo, thinko, or braino.
