Wow... That's unfortunate for me... Yes, I can generate keys up to 1024-bit in length on the card. However, as I'd much rather use 2048-bit keys, I guess I'll just have to sort things out with the retailer I got it from... Can you recommend another brand that produces readers which are easier to use? E.g. Gemalto or G&D or anything in that direction.
Thanks a lot!
