Secure Global Desktop Support for SHA-1 and SHA-2 Signed Certificates (Doc ID 2093535.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 4.63 to 5.3 [Release 4.0 to 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document is intended to provide a high-level overview of Secure Global Desktop (SGD) support for both SHA-1 and SHA-2 signed security certificates. This information will be useful to SGD Administrators responding to reports of 3rd party products (such as Google's Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox) plans to warn regarding the use of—or deprecate support for—SHA-1 signed security certificates.


This reference material is presented as a supplement to the extensive security documentation already available for the Secure Global Desktop product.  Administrators looking for detailed instructions to generate Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs), or to install certificates signed by trusted Certificate Authorities (CAs) may find them within the published SGD Security Guide.

Note: This material in this document is specific to the algorithm that is used to sign a public security certificate, not the ciphers used in secure connections to verify message integrity.  Additional details regarding the ciphers used for secure connections can be found within Section 3.6 of the Security Guide.
