Description of problem:

downstream bug for https://pagure.io/freeipa/issue/6790

Comment 3 Christian Heimes 2019-04-16 14:54:11 UTC
IPA has increased the default RSA size to 3072bits. That's equivalent to 128 bit symmetric strength and recommended by NIST for usage after 2030. 4096 bit RSA keys would reduce the speed of signature verification to almost half of 3072.
