I have question about elgamal algorithm, Why NIST do not certified this algorithm, And every implementation of this algorithm in Python language have Vulnerability?

  • Do you have any examples of Python implementations that are known to be vulnerable? Are you asking if they are vulnerable, or why they are vulnerable? – Anders May 16 '18 at 11:00
  • The first part - why hasn't NIST certified this - should be answerable. I'm not sure if the second part of the question can be objectively answered. My best guess is that it's simply because... it's notoriously hard to implement a cryptographic algorithm so that it is secure. – S.L. Barth - Reinstate Monica May 16 '18 at 11:12
  • HI. My first question is Why NIST not certified this algorithm? – Juliet May 16 '18 at 12:33
  • Second question is this Algorithm in Python lib have Vulnerability ? – Juliet May 16 '18 at 12:34
