openSUSE’s Marcus Meissner announced today that the RPM and repository signing keys of openSUSE Linux are switching to using the stronger 4096-bit RSA key to provide users with better security.

The new RSA key will be applied to the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release, as well as to the openSUSE Leap, the openSUSE Backports, and SLE (SUSE Linux Enterprise) repositories.

For openSUSE Tumbleweed, the new 4096-bit RSA key will be used starting with this week’s snapshots. This means that if you’re updating your Tumbleweed repositories on a regular basis, you will be automatically upgraded to the new RSA key, which will be imported to the RPM keyring.
