SSH User Identity Key > 2,048 bit

Partner ask to generate a auth key of 4,096-bit or larger, however Sterling menu doesn't allow for any key size except 1,024, 1,536 or 2,048.

Also, there does not appear to be a documented and supported method to generate a key pair using a command line/tool and import key pair into Sterling.
