I am surely not an expert on the field , but I heared some people say that NIST P-256 is somehow backdoored .
I don't know about the seriousness of this claim . Maybes it is just some conspiracry theory . But if there is some truth about it , then why is it still implemented ? Almost everyone I asked saied it is a bad idea to use P-256 . If true :
Why is it still in GPG ( as of 2017 ) .
Does it have any use ( expect legacy & compartibility ) ?
Is it really broken to the point where it is unsafe to use ( in a professional environment )
