Time´s up for SHA-1 hash algo, but one in five websites still use it
Google, Microsoft and Mozilla say they won´t trust anyone who hasn´t migrated.
One in five websites (21 per cent) are still using certificates signed with the vulnerable SHA-1 hash algorithm, according to a new survey.
Reliance on the obsolete hashing technology leaves companies at greater risk of security breaches and compliance problems, certificate management firm Venafi warns.
Venafi´s latest study shows there has been improvement since November 2016, when a third (35 per cent) of websites were still using SHA-1.
