Because its cert key is 128 bits.
I don't believe that to be the case. For RSA, keys generally *start* at
512 bits and go up from there, with 2048 considered a bare minimum by
many now. I'm not sure what length you would therefore be referring to
for a "cert key" of 128 bits.
Hm, I swear when I played with this several years ago, going from 1024 bits
to 2048 bits changed my ssf from 128 to 256. But it has been a long time.
