Re: Is there a database somewhere keeping track of these 'deprecations' ?

I keep saying that we need a website, with a queryable API, that returns things like:

MD5: Insecure.

WEP: Insecure.

SHA-1: Vulnerable.

SHA-256: Viable.

And that everyone can query. Then you can have things like deprecation warnings for any software that is using them and cares to check as soon as vulnerabilities come to light.
