DKIM implementation issue was that if the amount of the signature key is less than 1024 bits, if sufficient computing power can be forged. US-CERT has confirmed in the notice that the keys are shorter than 1.024 bits do not provide a sufficient level of security, and that all the keys up to RSA-768 can be forged. (more…)
