OpenSSH 8.8 deprecates SHA-1

Item posted by Bob Proulx <rwp> on Mon 11 Oct 2021 05:14:54 AM UTC.

OpenSSH 8.8 was released on September 26, 2021 and deprecated all use of the SHA-1 hash algorithm.  This affects users using git, svn, hg repositories using ssh-rsa keys and who have upgraded to ssh 8.8.  (The cvs repositories are not affected.)  For user workarounds please see this documentation page.

Upgrading the services is a high priority but there are various entanglements which makes doing this immediately and quickly rather hard.  It will take some time.  Please be patient.
