SHA-1 marked as unsafe

Hello,

 

Since SHA-1 is marked as unsafe in browsers beginning next year, will there be a move to other more secure hash algorithms?

Hi verbalins,

 

I guess you are talking about the SimTalk function 'computeSHA1Hash'.

 

The function was never intended to secure any transmission of data. The idea was to be able to calculate a hash sum from a text to be able to do a fast check if two texts are identical.

 

Do you have any scenario in mind where you need this function and where safety is important?

 

Regards,

Ralf

No, sorry, I have no problems with it. I misunderstood the implications of the findings.
