    For the most part these are side channel attacks and can be prevented. But the issues with RSA and Asymmetric cryptography are the exact reasons I don't trust it. I only use it to sign e-mails and with that I max out the key size and expire the keys every 6 months. I have never trust them as they are much weaker than symmetric cryptography. a 1024 bit RSA key is approximately the same as a 90-bit Symmetric key.

    Good read though! :thumb:
