CERTivity 1.1 to Support Transition to Secure RSA keys

As Microsoft announces that the use of certificates that have RSA keys that are less than 1024 bits long will be blocked, and in the future other systems and even Java Virtual Machine may do this as well, we are introducing in the soon to be launched minor version 1.1 of CERTivity KeyStores Manager features to easily spot such certificates, and to warn when generating RSA Key Pairs with less than 1024 bits actually a minimum configurable size greater or equal to 1024. Another measure will be that the default out of the box RSA KeyPair size will be doubled to 2048, too. This value can, at any moment, be increased by users and it will remain persistent for future uses.
