ssh key generater problem
I have this problem. I am running Mandriva Free 2007 and I try to generate ssh key by running this command
[system]$ ssh-keygen -t dsa -b 2048 -f /home/cron/backup-rsync-key
And I always get this output:
DSA keys must be 1024 bits
Is there anyone know who to fix this problem. I want to generate 2048 ssh key not 1024.
Pretty strange - I don't have that restriction on my FreeBSD box. However, on my FC5 box I see the same message as you do.
From the ssh-keygen manpages on FC:
DSA keys must be exactly 1024 bits as specified by FIPS 186-2.
