By default, the
Streaming Profiler 6.5 creates SHA-256 hashes, and the Offline Plug-in 6.5 uses
SHA-256 to verify the contents of the profile and verify the integrity of
strings and buffers.
Plug-in 6.0.x, however, launches applications only from profiles
with SHA-1 hashes, such as from version 6.0 of the profiler. To enable
plug-ins to launch profiles created with Streaming Profiler 6.5, select this
option to provide the additional hashes. Use this option during a transition
period where both hashes are needed until all Offline Plug-ins have been
updated to 6.5.
SHA-2 is fully supported on Windows Server 2008 R2. For earlier Windows platforms, see the Microsoft documentation.
If selected, the
time required to generate both hashes increases the profiling time.
To add the SHA-1
hashes in profiles created or updated with version 6.5 of the profiler:
- In the
profiling wizard, on the
Offline Plug-in Support page, select the option to
support for 6.0 offline plug-ins.
- To set the
preference for all profiles, from the
Edit menu, select
Offline Plug-in Support, and select the check box. The setting
becomes the default in the profiling wizard for all profiles created or updated after setting this option.
