Article summary

This article concerns the change of account certificates from SHA-1 to SHA-256

From release 7.2, GateManager will start using SHA-256 certificates for all accounts created after the upgrade.

Old and existing accounts will continue to use the previous SHA-1 certificate until it is renewed.

Renewing account certificates can be performed on each account or using the global renew feature.

This requires a Server Administrator account.

Pressing the “Accounts” button displays a list of all accounts using the old SHA-1 certificate. From this menu, it is possible to renew all or selected accounts in one go.

When an account is renewed, it will be marked as shown below:

IMPORTANT! – renewing an account will send a new account certificate to the user and the old certificate will no longer be able to be used.
