Enable Support for SHA256 Signatures

You can configure how the Key Agent presents RSA signatures in response to the Agent Identities Request. When Use Only SHA1 Signatures is enabled (the default), the agent sends only ssh-rsa and x509v3-sign-rsa signatures. When this option is unchecked the agent also sends SHA256 signatures (x509v3-rsa2048-sha256 and ssh-rsa-sha2-256@attachmate.com).

To enable support for SHA256 Signatures

  • From the Key Agent Options menu, uncheck Use Only SHA1 Signatures.

    NOTE:Agent forwarding to some servers may not be supported when this option is unchecked because of the length of the reply to the list request.
