I don't believe you. Reference?

FIPS 180-2 specifies four secure hash algorithms - SHA-1, SHA-256,
SHA-384, and SHA-512. We're using SHA-1.

I think you meant go with SHA-256, which is new in FIPS 180-2. FIPS
180-1 only had SHA-1. FIPS 180-2 superseded FIPS 180-1, adding three
the algorithms SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512.
