Now we need RSA support - OpenSSH 7.0 has removed DSA support

Thu Aug 13, 2015 10:03 am

Hi!

I don't understand why Mikrotik keeps DSA, its insecure (yes, also the 2048bit version), and does not support RSA. Anyway yesterday OpenSSH 7.0 has been released and DSA is not longer supported. So please move to RSA and ECC now - Thx!

RSA support is long overdue! I hate having to keep a separate DSA key just for accessing my Mikrotik hardware (which is plenty).

It seems like RouterOS does not support ECDSA.
