Hello Team

I was wondering if you are considering implementing ECDSA Encryption for the next version (Monterey ?)

    Hi vonstael,

    thanks for taking the time to ask about this.

    For now GPG Suite doesn't officially support elliptic curve keys, since they are not yet wide spread or widely supported by other solutions, so it's best to stick to RSA if compatibility with other solutions is important for you.

    However it is possible to generate an ECC key using Terminal: gpg --expert --full-generate-key or import ECC keys using gpg --expert --import path/to/file.

    Currently our top priority is getting GPG Mail ready for Monterey.

    Best,
    Steve
