What do you mean when you talk about "less secure"? SHA-1 is a
function that returns a UNIQUE code based on the input. That's all.
Basically, I think RunRev should implement a function to calculate
SHA-1, like md5 digest. This function should be distributed inside the
player (no external .dll / .so required). SHA-1 should not be
implemented in transcript (my 2 cents opinion :-) )
Digital signature, or public/private keys are other things (they
If RunRev player implements sha-1, then in transcript one can manage
certificates, etc... but without sha-1 algorithm....
