SHA2 Hashing Algorithm - but Thumbprint Algorithm still shows SHA1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello experts,

    Wanted to post a question and get your opinion recommendations.  I am currently in the process of setting up a secondary Issuing CA that can support the new CNG/ECC algorithms.   Everything has been successful thus far, and I able to install a certificate that uses the RSASSA-PSS Signature Algorithm as well as the sha256 Signature Hash Algorithm.

    My problem is, however, when I scroll to the bottom of this certificates details pane, the field that displays the "Thumbprint Algorithm" still shows up as SHA1. Is this what is expected?  I would assume that the thumbprint algorithm should match the SHA256 path.

    Thanks again for any comments/suggestions!
