InformationUse this command to generate RSA key pairs for your Cisco device.
RSA keys are generated in pairs--one public RSA key and one private RSA key.
An RSA key pair is a prerequisite for setting up SSH and should be at least 2048 bits.
NOTE: IOS does NOT display the modulus bit value in the Audit Procedure.
Organizations should plan and implement enterprise network cryptography and generate an appropriate RSA key pairs, such as 'modulus', greater than or equal to 2048.
NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
SolutionGenerate an RSA key pair for the router.
hostname(config)#crypto key generate rsa general-keys modulus <em>2048</em>
RSA key pairs do not exist.
