Parent Tickets: #2751 Sensitive: no


Rather than having the ability to be staying on the old encryption type without moving forward even with the latest I2P upgrades, in the Tunnel encryption type current choices are:

ELGamal-2048 - ECIES-X25519 - Both Encryption Types


ECIES-X25519 - Both Encryption Types (ELGamal-2048 & ECIES-X25519)

Remove the ability to have only ELGamal-2048 encryption, we dont want to move backward while the software upgrades to forward.

essentially a dup of your ticket #2751 - as I said there, We have a plan, see ​http://zzz.i2p/topics/2639 post 15

we have a migration plan in place. ECIES is still a new protocol, we are not ready to turn it on for everything.

In addition, ElG-only may be required for some users for backwards compatiblity (LS1 only)

we're nowhere near ready to remove ElG-only option. Perhaps we'll mark it deprecated, or mark the both option as recommended, once we're confident.
