I’m not sure that sha512 has to be enabled or is dependent on your server, generally. I could be missing something. Is your app built on C#? And what is it that makes you think you need to “enable it”
Instead of just using the hashing function for whatever language your app uses?

Its requirement for Authorize.net to work, Can we do that? I am using vb.net code.

Vb.net has a hash function for sha512 I do believe. I am not sure if your server has to have in enabled. I think you just write the function and be done with it. I def could be wrong bc I don’t know much about windows servers.

Starting with Windows Vista and Server 2008, the Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) Suite B algorithms (including SHA2) are included in the operating system and support SHA2.

Note: Even though the algorithms are available, it is up to the individual applications to implement support
