This command configures the hash algorithm.
|hash-algorithm||Hash algorithm to use (Default SHA-512).|
|hash_algorithm||Name of hash algorithm to use (Default SHA-512).|
Use this command to configure the hash algorithm. Once configured, this configured algorithm will be used for the next certificate creation. Previously MD5 was the only hashing algorithm available. As of ExtremeXOS 16.1, the default has been changed to more secure SHA-512 algorithm. If you prefer the older version, you can configure to the least secure MD5 hashing algorithm.
The following example displays the show ssl output with the SHA-512 algorithm configured:
X460G2-48t-10G4.5 # show ssl HTTPS Port Number: 443 (Enabled) Signature Algorithm configured: SHA-512 with RSA Encryption Private Key matches the Certificate's public key. RSA Key Length: 1024 Certificate: Data: Version: 3 (0x2) Serial Number: 0 (0x0) Signature Algorithm: md5WithRSAEncryption Issuer: C=IN, O=ext, CN=ext Validity Not Before: Dec 7 21:52:53 2014 GMT Not After : Dec 7 21:52:53 2015 GMT Subject: C=IN, O=ext, CN=ext
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 16.1.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
