From an answer to the question RSA maximum bytes to encrypt, comparison to AES in terms of security? I learned that there is a theoretical limit of how much data can be safely encrypted with symmetric block ciphers (like AES for example) with the same key. The answer says that for a block size of
n bits there are theoretical concerns when approaching
2^(n/2) encrypted blocks with the same key, and a comment suggests to use
2^(n/4) for a more defensive approach. For AES with its 16 bytes per block, both figures would be significantly more than any single AES key would ever encrypt in my application, so I needn't worry about that.
Nevertheless, even if this limitation bears no practical relevance for me and I have not understood why it exists, I still consider it "good to know" (e. g. because for other symmetric block ciphers with smaller block sizes, it might become relevant).
Hence I'm wondering: are there a similar hypothetical limitations for RSA? In other words: is there some kind of "maximum number of encryptions" I should do with the same RSA key, or is it truly infinite how many times I can encrypt something (in my case: varying 128-bit AES keys) with RSA (assuming the private key remains private forever and there's no attack found)?
I haven't yet found anything about it, mainly because when something like this is asked, the answers tend to immediately focus on how much data can you encrypt at once, but they don't say anything about the maximum number of encryptions.
And finally, for completion's sake: I'll use RSA-2048+OAEP-SHA256, but the question is targeted towards RSA in general, for any padding algorithm, and if the answer varies by padding algorithm used, that'd be nice to know.
