why AIRVPN not using sha2 instead of sha1 ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

OpenVPN does not use SHA-1 as packets authentication cipher.

 

It uses HMAC SHA1, so you just don't care about collisions. In the Control Channel you can also have HMAC SHA384. See also https://airvpn.org/specs

 

For a more thorough discussion see https://airvpn.org/topic/14837-control-channel-cipher-satisfactory/page-2?do=findComment&comment=33173

 

Kind regards

 

does Eddie by default use HMAC SHA384 ? or it should be added manually ? if yes , then how to do it ?

Hello!

 

It does not depend on Eddie, it's on OpenVPN. Eddie comes packaged with an OpenVPN version that supports it and will pick it by default. Otherwise make sure that OpenVPN in your system is up to date.

 

Kind regards
