PKI and SHA-2
Posted on 2014-04-11
our AD runs on 2003 R2 Domain and Forest Functional level. We want to upgrade our PKI to support for SHA-2 certs in near future for internal certificates.
Im not sure,how this works but if we want to use SHA-2,dont we have to upgrade our AD at least up to 2008 R2 Domain and Forest Functional level?
as we want to "get rid" of the SHA-1 certs,what could be a reasonable way to have a smooth
transition? wait until all SHA-1 certs expire or start issuing SHA-2 certs slowly but surely? we use certs mostly for OWA-and in future for mobile access.
