comment How much stronger is RSA-2048 compared to RSA-1024?
Someone who does not understand encryption, will not understand anything about GNFS either... You forgot to explain why we can't just say that $2^{2048} = 2^{1024}·2^{1024}$ is $2^{1024}$ times harder than $2^{1024}$. I heard that you could factor $1024$-bit RSA in a year with a milion dollar computer.

I heard that they could factor RSA-1024 bit in a year, with just a milion dollar computer. That why you need at least 2048 bit nowadays.
