How much encryption is considered secure? 1024, 2048 bits etc...?


Haven't heard the latest numbers in a while, just curious what everyone thought. I'm specifically talking RSA here.

Either my question is so basic that it doesn't deserve a response or no one knows?

1024-bit keys are recommended in a corporate setting. 2048-bit for extreme needs.
