Year 2010 Issues on Cryptographic Algorithms

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the United States
describes in various guidelines that NIST will no longer approve two-key triple DES, RSA with a 1024-bit key, and SHA-1 as the algorithms suitable for IT systems of the U.S. Federal Government after 2010.

They recommend AES or three-key triple DES, RSA with a 2048-bit key, and SHA-2 over 224-bit.

It's my understanding that WinSCP has already supported AES, three-key triple DES and RSA with a 2048-bit key. Is it correct?

And how is SHA-2?

Thanks for any advice.

Correct.

WinSCP supports SHA-256.
