When configuring the server after installation, we get to create or import a private key/public key pair for authentication but the type is fixed to DSA / RSA 2048 bit.
Why can’t we use ed25519 to create our private keys. AFAIK ed25519 has about the same strength as RSA 3000-bit and it is faster. Or, is there still software out there without support for ed25519?
I mean: we’re talking about a password safe, right?
If the private key is cracked, all your other passwords are too.
So why not go for the stronger & faster algorithm?
Or am I missing something?
