  <description>
    <p>A vulnerability in the implementation of ElGamal decryption procedures
      of Libgcrypt leaks information to various side-channels.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A physical side-channel attack allows a remote attacker to fully extract
      decryption keys during the decryption of a chosen ciphertext.
