Sha-1 certificate on R80.10 Management server

Every week I discover a troubling detail about our environment. 


How did I end up with a SHA-1 certificate on management, and thus the gateways.  SHA-1 was deprecated in 2017 and it was a big deal then.  Can someone help me understand sk#103839 (SHA-1 and SHA-256 certificates in Check Point Internal CA (ICA) ?  Yes, this probably is my problem that I did not take care of, so if it is, please just tell me.

Thank you,

Assuming your R80.x Management was upgraded from R77.x, your Internal CA is still probably using SHA1 certificates.
A fresh install of R80.x would result in a SHA256 ICA.
If you want to change your ICA to SHA256, see: https😕/
Note, if you're managing older gateways, this will break your ability to manage them.
The SK above lists the versions that supports a SHA256 ICA.

sk103839 relates to how the gateway and management fetches updates from Check Point and isn't related to the ICA.
