Issue/Introduction

The Vulnerability scan shows SSH Server Public Key Too Small error (QD 38738)

Resolution

This feature is not available on current SGOS OS versions (6.7.x) since SSH host key for the SSH-console (SG = SSH server) is still hard-coded to 1024.  SGOS 7.1.x and later has an option to import larger size SSH public key. 

In the SGOS 7.1 Release Notes you'll find an explanation under the section "SSH Enhancements"
