Does ADX 1000 support sha2?

With broswers no longer accepting SHA-1 hash certs after December 31, and warning about SHA-1 hashes now: .

Our CA wants us to recreate our certs with SHA-2 using SHA256. I have combed to documentation for information but even the most current rev 12.501b only talks about SHA-1 and md5.

Does the ADX 1000 support SHA256 SHA-2 hashes in the cert. on 12.05.01b.

If so what do we have to do to enable/and gerenrate the cert request with it?

If not what are our options?

We've been able to host sites w/SHA2 certs (here's an example:


We're running 12.5.02b.

Re: Does ADX 1000 support sha2?

I just got a response from support telling me that they should be able to support the SHA2 certs the documentation is just out of date. But we will need to update to 12.5.02 to be able to support TLS 1.1 and 1.2.

We are not able to test this yet as we use wildcards certs and I need to make sure everything that is using the cert is able to support SHA256 before we update it. Becuase our CA revokes the old cert 72 hours after make the request for the new cert.
