For most public-key algorithms in SSH, there is a fixed hash algorithm used for signatures. For example, for Ed25519, it's SHA-512. RSA keys (that is, ssh-rsa) traditionally used SHA-1, but that's no longer a secure option. Recently, support for SHA-2 (SHA-256 and SHA-512) signatures with RSA were added, and there were additional components added to the ...
