I assume TLS 1.2 is a protocol for crytography, and SHA-2 is an advaced encryption algorithm.
Given that is SHA-2 a required component of TLS 1.2
Is SHA-2 a component of any other protocols (rx: TLS 1.0, 1.1)
Is there a difference between SHA-2 and SHA-256 ? (I am think there is no difference, just want to check)
Thanks in advance
