BR500 - SHA2?

Just looked at the datasheet for the newly-released BR500 VPN router:

https://www.netgear.com/images/datasheet/security/BR500.pdf

 

One glaring omission; SHA2 in the VPN algorithms. The highest hashing algorithm listed is SHA-1.

 

Surely this device supports SHA2 family hashes? (256,384,512). Yes?

(by the way, your forum does not offer the BR500 as an item in the "Model" field for new posts.)

Hi @train_wreck,

 

I inquired your post to the higher tier of NETGEAR Support.  As per the higher tier of NETGEAR Support, the Insight Mesh VPN supports 521 bits ECDSA keys, AES-256-CTR + HMAC-SHA256.
