Reported by: anonymous maybe Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Component: apps/i2ptunnel Version: 0.9.47
Keywords: Cc:
Parent Tickets: #2751 Sensitive: no

Description

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

Enhancement:

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.
