Authorized_keys file size limit

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I would like to know how many RSA keys we can write in the
authorized_keys file.
I know it will depend on the size of the RSA public keys but can I
have an example with 1024 length RSA public keys.

I think that will depend on your filesystem type rather than on SSH.

You'd have to keep it well below 2^1024 keys to make sure that 2 of
them did not have the same modulus (meaning one user could determine
another's private key).
