[openpgp] Patch to clarify OCB implementation, add test vectors for EAX/OCB, compatible implementations available

2018-02-06 14:50:59

We’ve just created a merge request to RFC4880bis master at the following link 
with patch attached.

This patch clarifies implementation details of OCB, removes description of 
OCB’s history, and provides test vectors for AEAD modes, including both EAX and 
OCB. This patch is mainly from the work of my colleague Nickolay.

Probably worth a brief mention, that there are now two fully compatible 
AEAD-EAX / AEAD-OCB OpenPGP implementations, namely GnuPG and RNP 

Kind regards,
