Detailed Description

ElGamal encryption scheme with non-standard padding.

ElGamal provide the algorithm implementation ElGamal key agreement and encryption schemes.

The ElGamal class [mistakenly] used the OID for DSA from about Crypto++ 1.0 through Crypto++ 8.2. At Crypto++ 8.3 the OID was fixed and now uses ElGamal encryption, which is If you need to Load an ElGamal key with the wrong OID then see ElGamal on the Crypto++ wiki.
