Description Robert Sevat 2015-03-22 21:44:17 UTC
irc/quassel by default generates 1024 bit RSA keys which are a bit dated.


openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:1024 \

I changed it to 4096 bit on my server and it quassel functions correctly with it. I'd suggest changing it to 2048 at least, preferably 4096. 

Kind Regards,
Robert Sevat
