Microsoft plans St Valentine´s Day massacre for SHA‑1

The death knell for the SHA‑1 cryptographic hash function will echo around the web now that all the main browser builders have decided to cut off support – only 12 years after its flaws were first discovered.

On Friday, Mozilla and Microsoft both announced that support for SHA‑1 in HTTPS certificates would be dropped – Moz with build 51 of Firefox in January and Microsoft on February 14 for its Edge and Internet Explorer 11 browsers. Google has already said Chrome will shun SHA‑1-signed SSL/TLS certs from build 56, due out by the end of January.

The SHA-1 hash algorithm is no longer secure.
