Just a quick comment on creating a longer key. I see a lot of people
doing that and I think it's absolutely useless. As of now, we do not
believe that anyone has the computing power to break a 4096 bit RSA key
by brute force. The only way would be through a side attack. If a side
attack worked against a 4096 bit key, it would likely also work against
a 8k key as well.

There's no real benefit to creating a larger than 'standard' key at this
