Re: Key Sizes in S/MIME v3.2

As far as interoperability is concerned the current text is:
"A user agent SHOULD generate RSA key pairs at a minimum key size of 768 bits".

This statement is in conflict with the consensus call that the WG Chair made at the beginning of the thread. Sean said:

>> From the mail discussion we had in December, it's pretty clear to me that
>>key sizes from 1024-2048 ought to be the MUST and other key sizes are MAY.
