Should I generate a 512-bit key or a 1024-bit key or 2048 bit key?

Problem

Issue occurs when generating private key

Solution

512-bit keys are no longer supported by most CA's due to their weak key strength and will therefore be rejected during a certificate enrollment. 1024-bits it has also been phased out. Generate a 2048 bit CSR since it is the minimum key size allowed.
