Pinned topic Use of MD5 as SSL Certificate Signature Algorithm.

‏2012-12-22T08:31:21Z |
Use of MD5 as SSL Certificate Signature Algorithm. Given that our encryption is 2048 bit, is this issue critical? What are other preferred algorithms/methods?
Can you provide any literature for our better understanding?

    Hi,

    Theres various sources of literature online describing how the algorithm is broken and a would be attacker could potentially forge a cert. Newer versions of SHA are commonly considered more secure.
