#12120 new defect

SSH servers shouldn't use DSA

Reported by: nextgens Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: DSA entropy randomness security Cc:


The various SSH servers packaged with openwrt should be tweaked NOT to use DSA keys.

DSA relies on 'proper randomness' to be available during each operation... that's hardly ever the case on embedded systems where openwrt is likely to run.
