Admin Console CSR generation

The Openfire admin console currently generates 1024 sized keys. Many CAs require keys be 2048 or longer and more are moving in that direction. (GoDaddy just started requiring 2048+)

It would be great if the console would generate 2048 by default or is there was an option to select a size.

(Not sure whether this is a bug or a feature request)

I am having this issue as well. We use GoDaddy and they require a 2048-bit key. Did anyone get you an answer to this on how to get the larger key?

I never got a reply.

I know there is a way to do it using the java key tools, but the project is not sufficiently high on my todo list.

One day, I will write an article about how to do it and post it here.
