    from RSA official website:
    the important point :
    the news : RSA 576 has been factored the December 3 2003, so broken.

    => http://mathworld.wolfram.com/news/2003-12-05/rsa/

    RSA 2048 used in CS seems to have a gap of security and so is still safe, but i find interresting that supposed unbreakable algorithm in fact are.
    So i agree with CS to use in RinjDael & Twofish 256 bits keys instead of 128, in addition the CS protocol increases by far brute force attempt so no need to worry at all :)

    In future builds I will probably increase RSA to 4096bit or use another public key system, like Elliptic curves. For now though RSA-2048bit is still very secure so it isn't really a problem for CS users :)

    Jan, I'll have to take a look at the mail on Monday (it's the weekend here and I don't have access to the mail :) )

    RSA 4096 would be very nice :D
