MySQL native authentication

Hello everyone

Regarding the native authentication mechanism of MySQL server, I see that it use the hashing function SHA1.

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-server/latest/page_protocol_connection_phase_authentication_methods_native_password_authentication.html

However, SHA1 is outdated now and there are more secure SHA2 functions now available and some of our clients have started reporting this. I was just wondering if there is any plan to upgrade the native auth mechanism to use more recent functions? Or is there any work around for this in the mean time?

Regards
Abhishek
