(New) RFC 3161 Service SHA256:
Important: Customers must leverage SHA256 Timestamping service going forward, and should not use a SHA1 service unless there is a legacy platform constraint which doesn't allow use of SHA2 service (in this case you can use this new URL: RFC 3161 Service SHA128: http://sha1timestamp.ws.symantec.com/sha1/timestamp).
