Google announced its plan to increase the level of encryption between the user and the services where seeking to reach the level of encryption keys, a length of 2048 bits by the end of this year.
Google also will change the basic security certificate signed by all SSL certificates have, although it is still high security and encryption where you have a key length of 1024 bits.
The company said it will begin the shift towards new encryption certificates as of the beginning of next August, which gives it more time to make sure everything worked its desired form where these modifications occur sometimes conflicts with devices such as phones, printers, cameras, gaming platforms.
Google provided a set of common questions that can notify in Bal normal user or site managers and developers about this procedure.
The encryption keys of length 2048 bit stronger by 2 raised to the exponent 32 times the encryption keys length of 1024 bits, ie almost 4.3 billion times, which means that any attempt to penetrate this encryption requires action 4.3 billion times longer than attempt to penetrate certificates encryption 1024 bits using the potential of the personal computer normal.
And more detail so that anyone hacked security certificate encrypted with 2048-bit requires him to work for a 6.4 Quadrleon-year period (ie 4.3 billion * 1.5 million) to follow the way of guessing and dictionaries and by the processing power available in personal computers.
