One of our partners, JPMorgan bank is upgrading across the board to SHA2 certificates. My reading of their notice was that they expect any client that connects to their servers or any server that they connect to as a client using SFTP to support SHA2. As best I can tell, that requirement is satisfied by using SHA256 MAC ciphers. Can anyone confirm my belief that Goanywhere supports SHA2 as both a client and as a server? See attached message from JPMorgan for background.

The SHA-2 family consists of six hash functions with digests (hash values) that are 224, 256, 384 or 512 bits: SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, SHA-512/224, SHA-512/256.

GoAnywhere supports three of the six Hash Algorithms (SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512).
