Package elgamal implements ElGamal encryption, suitable for OpenPGP, as specified in "A Public-Key Cryptosystem and a Signature Scheme Based on Discrete Logarithms," IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, v. IT-31, n. 4, 1985, pp. 469-472.

This form of ElGamal embeds PKCS#1 v1.5 padding, which may make it unsuitable for other protocols. RSA should be used in preference in any case.
