Key Length

Postby john_es » Mon Jul 22, 2013 6:20 am

Is it possible to use an existing GPG key?

What key length is used when creating a new profile? Is it possible to use a 4096 bit key?

Thanks

You can import and use an existing PGP key from your pgp keyring, as soon as it's an RSA+RSA key. DSA is not fully supported by OpenPGP-SDK. 4096 bits keys work perfectly.

RS creates new keys with 2048 bits, which is considered safe for the time being.
