What's the Future for SHA-1 and Browser Users as of January 1, 2016?

By Bruce Morton
December 22, 2015
On January 1, 2016, the public trust certification authorities (CAs) will stop issuing SHA-1 signed SSL/TLS certificates. The bottom line is SHA-1 is vulnerable. New studies have shown that the safety factor is decreasing. Continuing to issue SHA-1 signed certificates could compromise a CA or could compromise a legitimate website. Unfortunately for old browser and operating users, the servers must continue to move to SHA-2 signed certificates. These users should try to move to supported systems.
