joist hangers require add. nailing?

if I use joist hangers on both sides of the joist(ledger + rimjoist)
do I need to additional nailing/screws through the rimjoist into the joist?

Depends on the joist hanger you are thinking of using. Something like a Simpson LU26 doesn't require any additional nails other than the ones holding the hanger in place (WHEN THEY ARE PROPERLY INSTALLED!)
