Does the firewall/VPN series support higher signature algorithm (sha-256) than sha1?

Hello,

As SHA1 is marked insecure by our security team, I'd like to know if the latest firmwares for IPSEC and SSL VPN support higher signature algorithm (ie: sha-256, sha-384, sha-512)?

Regards,

 

Pascal

Hello zerealfox, 

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

I have checked our datasheets and firmwares and it appears that sha-256 is currently not supported yet on our units. You can post a request on our Idea Exchange Board and give the post a kudos(like), the more kudos the request gets the more it is likely to be implemented. 

 

Thanks,

Which router and firmware?

 

Most current ProSafe routers support IPSec SHA2-256 and SHA2-512, as well as SHA-1 and MD5, neither of which I recommend using.

 

SSL is certificate based so there are no settings for the Authentication algorithm.

 

Encryption alogritms supported are DES/3DES/AES-128(not recommended) and AES-256.
