12 cheeseburgers are more than 1, but pretty useless to me because 1 is really all I can use.

If current openvpn or IPSEC isn’t being cracked, there is only more energy wasted in going to 4096bit keys.

Edit: lol downvotes... ok, cool. Tell me who is breaking 2048bit diffiehellman exchange to 256bit AES in CBC mode. I’ll wait right here.




You are probably getting downvoted because the article points out exactly that. The author was erroneously thinking that a big key is necessary - and wireguard doesn't provide one. Which made him discover that fallacy.


Except cheeseburgers rot, but crypto doesn’t. 4096 keys might be useful twenty years in the future.
