SHA 2 certificate Signature Algorithm

Affected Version: 8.2 and higher

Description: Signature Algorithm shows "sha256" but thumbprint algorithm still says "sha1"

More Information: this is expected behavior. Thumbprint is just a property attached to the certificate object this value is always SHA1. The thumbprints purpose is actually to make it easy to locate a particular certificate in the certificate store of a system, it is a computed field and not a part of the certificate data itself

On the other hand, signature algorithm is a part of the digital certificate and is used to verify certificate signature.
