BizTalk and sha-2 support RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I am a bit puzzled about this subject. I cannot seem to find any clear statement from Microsoft regarding support for SHA2 in BizTalk 2010 and 2013. I did notice that the Drummond Group states that SHA2 is an 'optional profile' and BizTalk did not participate in testing.

    In the meantime, government policies are moving away from SHA1 to SHA2 and even Microsoft seems to have stated that they are starting to fase out SHA1 from the year 2016.

    So, are we just delivered to buying some custom adapter for handling AS2 SHA2 signed certificates or can we just 'magically' use SHA2 certificates in BizTalk 2010 and 2013 as well?

    Kind regards

  • Hi,

    Microsoft has plans to support SHA2 algorithm in 2010, 2013 and 2013 R2 by releasing CUs shortly. The 2016 version will have complete support for SHA2. More details about this can be found here. Hope this helps.
