> Indeed, with the addition of RFC 8760 support (support for SHA-256 and SHA-512-256 auth algorithms), me and Maksym Sobolyev decided to try and remove the "ha1b" feature, originally designed to accommodate some broken SIP UAs who cannot follow the basic SIP authentication spec.  The feature had been in there since the very beginnings, and we were not sure if anyone is really benefiting from it anymore nowadays.
> A strong reason for removing "ha1b" was the sheer number of hashes to be stored per subscriber.  Since we now have 3 algorithms (MD5, SHA-256, SHA-512-256), there are 3 hash-columns to store.  With the "ha1b" feature, there would be 2 x 3 = 6 hashes in total to store, per user.  So you can see where this is going: "Can we get away with dropping ha1b and storing half the data per user?" ... was the big question.
> Still, we agreed that if there is still enough traction for the "ha1b" feature from the community, we can easily re-add the ha1b logic and 3 more columns to the table and backport everything to 3.2.  It's a trivial task, frankly.
Hi Liviu,

I would very much like to see this feature ported back to 3.2 please!
