SHA-2 Data Integrity Verification for the Secure Shell (SSH) Transport Layer Protocol
This memo defines algorithm names and parameters for use in some of the SHA-2 family of secure hash algorithms for data integrity verification in the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol. It also updates RFC 4253 by specifying a new RECOMMENDED data integrity algorithm.

RFC 6668 Sha2-Transport Layer Protocol July 2012
1. Overview and Rationale
The Secure Shell (SSH) [RFC4251] is a very common protocol for secure remote login on the Internet. Currently, SSH defines data integrity verification using SHA-1 and MD5 algorithms [RFC4253]. Due to recent security concerns with these two algorithms ([RFC6194] and [RFC6151], respectively), implementors and users request support for data integrity verification using some of the SHA-2 family of secure hash ...
