Kleopatra - typo in bit size?

Marco A.G.Pinto
Hello!

While using the option to create a new pair of keys:

[13:40] <+marcoagpinto> aheinecke: I believe I found a typo in Kleopatra
[13:40] <+marcoagpinto> :)
[13:40] <+marcoagpinto> in the crypto algorith names
[13:40] <+marcoagpinto> let me try to find it
[13:41] <+marcoagpinto> ACDSA
[13:42] <+marcoagpinto> NIST P-256
[13:42] <+marcoagpinto> NIST P-384
[13:42] <+marcoagpinto> NIST P-521
[13:42] <+marcoagpinto> shouldn't it be "P-512" instead of "P-521"?


Thanks!

Kind regards from the Gpg4win pt_PT translator,

No, it's really P-521. That's the name of the curve, which stems from
the fact that the modulus for that curve is $2^{521} - 1$, as defined in
<http://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/FIPS/NIST.FIPS.186-4.pdf>.
