This article is about the change of account certificates from SHA-1 to SHA-256
From release 7.2, the 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.
When pressing the “Accounts” button a list of all accounts that are using the old SHA-1 certificate will be shown. 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 can no longer be used.
