Paul,

Is the key associated with SSH or SSL?  If the key is available, the top half of the key will display the key length. A Hex to ASCII converted can be used to get this information. A pregenerated key in EXOS shows a value of 2048 bit as shown below which would be default.

---- BEGIN SSH2 ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY ----
Subject: root

........

If SSL is enabled, the 'show ssl' command will provide the RSA key length in the output. The 'show sshd2 user-key' command may also provide some insight.
