Google strengthens its SSL configuration against possible attacks

Quote:
Google replaced the SSL certificates for its online services with new ones that use stronger, 2048-bit RSA keys, making encrypted connections to its sites safer against so-called brute-force attacks.

The company announced in May that it would increase the key length for its SSL certificates from 1024 bits to 2048 bits by the end of 2013.

"Coming in ahead of schedule, we have completed this process, which will allow the industry to start removing trust from weaker, 1024-bit keys next year," Google security engineer Dan Dulay said Monday in a blog post.
