SSL Certificate SHA-2 Support

Category: Announcements

There have recently been a few announcements regarding the Certification Authority and Browser industries replacing the SHA-1 hashing algorithm with the more secure SHA-2. Each major industry player (namely Microsoft, Google and Mozilla) have all announced their own various plans to stop supporting SHA-1 SSL certificates after January 1, 2017 – some have taken a slower approach  some taking rather prompt action

We’re pleased to announce that all new SSL Certificates issued through Trustwave will now utilise the SHA-2 (also known as SHA-256) hashing algorithm.

Existing SSL Certificate holders will soon be able to re-issue their older SHA-1 certificates in the new SHA-2 hashing algorithm through the Synergy Wholesale Management System free of charge. We will make another announcement with this functionality is available to clients.

As a general rule, users using an operating system greater than OS X 10.5+ or Windows XP SP3+ will not be impacted by the change-over to SHA-256. If you have a specific need for a SHA-1 certificate, we can provide your SSL Certificate in this outdated algorithm on an ad-hoc basis until January 1, 2016. Please contact us for further information on this.

We are fully support the move to SHA-2 and we’re here to help in any way we can. If you need further assistance, or have any questions on how this change will impact you or your clients, please do not hesitate to contact your account manager through the Synergy Wholesale Management System.
