Rule S4426: Cryptographic keys should not be too short #1167
In cryptography, it is important, when generating keys, or key pairs, to use a key length that provides enough entropy against brute-force attacks. For the Blowfish algorithm the key should be at least 128 bits long, while for the RSA algorithm it should be at least 2048 bits long.
