By Clip Syndicate
Never again are you going to get a Google Web site whose security certificate is protected with comparatively weak 1,024-bit encryption. The Net giant has secured all its certificates with 2,048-bit RSA encryption keys or better, Google security engineer Dan Dulay said in a blog post Monday. This means two things. First, traffic will be harder to decrypt since 1,024-bit keys aren't in use at Google anymore. And, retiring the 1,024-bit keys means the computing industry can retire the technology altogether by declaring such keys untrustworthy. Google has been aggressively moving to stronger encryption because of U.S. government surveillance by the National Security Agency.
