Is Clarity compatible with SHA256 algorithm certificates?

  • 1.  Is Clarity compatible with SHA256 algorithm certificates?

    Posted 09-22-2015 09:58 PM

    Hi,

    Our security team have requested us to upgrade all Clarity Certificates which we have for interfacing applications to be upgraded from SHA1 algorithm to SHA256.

     

    Can anyone assist me in understanding if this is possible and if so, how can I generate the new certificates.

    Hi Harish,

     

    I believe you are asking about the SSl certificate, if thats the case then certificate needs to be generated and verified by the certificate authority provider.

    SumanPramanik covers the 'how', but with respect to the compatibility that (with regards to any algorithm used not just sha256) depends on the client and server components in place, including the version of Java.

     

    For SHA-256 you should be covered as this has been supported in Java for a long time (since version 1.4.2, which I'd estimate to be about 10 years old or so), and if you look at Clarity SaaS / On Demand servers in your web browser, you will see in the details/properties of those certificates that sha256 is being used there currently:  https://ondemand.ca.com
