Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-5013) Need support for SHA256 Signature Algorithms
Date Tue, 14 May 2013 09:19:16 GMT


Colm O hEigeartaigh commented on CXF-5013:

I'll apply the patch. However, the solution is really for the WS-SecurityPolicy specification
to be updated to support SHA-256. You also have the option to create your own AlgorithmSuite

> Due to the weakness of SHA1 algorithm, US National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) has recommended that SHA256 or higher algorithms be used. Using SHA256 is also required
by  Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS).
> Currently, there is no way to specify SHA256 Signature algorithms when signing a message
part using Web services security.
