Fix certutil -g keysize description maximum key size
The certutil option description for -g keysize states the maximum is 8192 bits which is wrong. It has been 16384 for quite some time. Additionally, the example for trust arguments has "TCu,Cu,Tuw", the spurious w should be removed.
Summary: certutil -g keysize description gives maximum key size in bits of 8192 but should be 16384 → Fix certutil -g keysize description maximum key size
Comment on attachment 8398849 [details] [diff] [review] fix maximum key size and drop spurious w r+ Two comments however: 1) the maximum and minimum key sizes are dictated by certutil itself, but to the version of softoken it uses. If you are generating a key in a different token, the restrictions of keysize would be different (some tokens only support discrete sizes like 1024 and 2048). It's a subtle difference for a seldom used usecase for certutil, so I'm not asking for a change. 2) It's to bad there isn't an easy way to suck this information from the source, but, alas, we can't include a freebl header in a middle of an xml file;). Give the ideal isn't possible, the current change is fine. bob
