Public Key Infrastructure SHA-1 to SHA-2 Migration Service
The SHA-2 hashing algorithm is now the standard for self-managed and public certificate authorities (CAs). Although SHA-1 is still in use, there is widespread recognition that SHA-1 certificates are unsafe, and U.S. NIST advised that SHA-1 should not be trusted past January 2014.
But moving to from the SHA-1 hashing algorithm to SHA-2 presents a complex problem due to the integral nature of hash algorithms within PKIs, as well as various industry and application incompatibilities between SHA-2 and older Android and Windows OSs still widely used today, as well as new and legacy versions of Microsoft Office.
