A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
In the SunMSCAPI-Provider only these signature algorithms are implemented now:
To create secure digital signatures we need at least:
New alogithms should be implemented easily, because MSCAPI already supports them. But they are not registered in the provider an cannot be added at runtime.
Currently (2008), the existing algorithms are not sufficient anymore.
German law enforces higher security for all new digital signatures. I expect similar laws in other countries.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
The only workaround would be to recompile sunmscapi.jar from the sources.
