I actually just updated my key to 4096 bits and am surprised at how low of a percentage of users on GitHub had this as well. I suppose 2048 is the default when using ssh-keygen.
Me too, especially since their tutorial on key generation uses 4096 bit keys
It’s not possible to generate ECDSA keys with the Apple shipped OpenSSH in OS X (confirmed on 10.7 to 10.9) which is annoying
% ssh-keygen -t ecdsa
unknown key type ecdsa
https://github.com/user.keys... You learn something new every day.
Well aren’t I glad I always use >2000 bit keys?
