Hi GPG developers,
By default, GPG uses the SHA1 hashing algorithm, which has been believed to be
weak for over 10 years. Is it possible to change the default over to
I understand that there are several different uses for hashing algorithms,
governed by the personal-digest-preferences and cert-digest-algo options.
I would think it makes sense to switch both of these over to SHA256, but
it's much more important to switch over personal-digest-preferences.
Previous email discussions on this list have mentioned some kind of
compatibility concerns. If we can't switch both over immediately, are there
any compatibility concerns with just switching personal-digest-preferences
