As the technology evolves, it is crucial to stay ahead of those who wish to defeat cryptographic technologies for their malicious benefit. The news is that SHA1, a very popular hashing function, is on the way out. One of the major benefits of using SHA256 is that it features a higher level of security and addresses some weaknesses in the SHA1 hashing algorithm.
As many organizations are upgrading to the SHA256 algorithm, we have created this document keeping in mind the changes that will be required on the end point servers. This document explains the necessary changes that are required to be made on the XenMobile and the NetScaler server’s.
This post provides a step by step guide of the changes required on the XenMobile and NetScaler if your Certificate Authority hashing algorithm is being migrated from SHA1 to SHA256.
