Change MyProxy key length from 512 to 1024

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
In org.globus.myproxy.MyProxy and org.globus.tools.MyProxy, the default key
length for new credentials is 512 bits. The C version defaults to 1024 bits,
as of December 2005, when it was changed from 512 bits.
Two lines need to be changed:
* org.globus.myproxy.MyProxy: line 836, change "512" to "1024"
* org.globus.tools.MyProxy: line 973, change "512" to "1024"
Or better yet, define a constant somewhere that they both refer to.
Created an attachment (id=1172) [details]
patch to increase MyProxy key lengths to 1024 bits
Please do bump up the MyProxy key lengths to 1024 bits. The TAGPMA Profile for
Short Lived Credential Services
(http://www.tagpma.org/files/IGTF-AP-SLCS-20051115-1-1.pdf) requires keys of at
least 1024 bits.
Reassigning to current cog developer to close/fix as appropriate
I committed the change to the jglobus CVS.
