I just had a short look at OTR and noticed that OTR is using DSA keys;
trying to find more details I found this:
"the current long term keys in OTR are using old DSA standard
 NIST 800-57 with 1024 bit prime and with SHA-1 as hash function."

Is there anyone who may comment on the security of OTR? we have OTR
featured in src/practical_settings/im.tex
