For a future release, I would like to propose to classify the use of old hash functions or short MACs.

This could be triggered when using MD5 or SHA-1 for KDF or MAC. Besides, it could also be triggered when using a short MAC tag, as in CCM_8 (which is not recommended by IANA, see

For the severity, I propose a yellow marking. Currently we have the not so bad category "Average: SEED + 128+256 Bit CBC ciphers". A similar category like "Old hash functions or short MAC tag" could be introduced.
