Just a heads-up. I received this notice from Adobe saying that identity provider certificates must be signed using SHA-256 by end of October.

ACTION REQUIRED: Discontinued Support of Deprecated IdP Certificates


To Systems Administrator:

As of October 31, 2020, Adobe will discontinue support of deprecated SHA-1 certificates for federated directories within Adobe Admin Consoles. It has been confirmed that your organization has one or more federated directories utilizing a deprecated SHA-1 certificate, or a directory that was converted as part of the SHA-256 Pilot, that requires migration prior to the support expiration.

Migration of federated directories to SHA-256 protocol aligns with industry standard, providing a more secure and direct integration with Adobe of your directory's authentication profiles. A self-service feature<> is available in the Adobe Admin Console that allows your organization to seamlessly migrate from a SHA-1 to a SHA-256 certificate requiring no down time and the ability to test prior to integration. With this solution, you can leverage the same directory as well as integrate directly with your identity provider, such as Azure, Google or any SAML 2.0 provider. Within the Admin Console, any directories with a SHA-1 or SHA-256 Pilot certificate are now indicated with an icon and banner notification to alert your administrators to which directories require an update. Learn more about the migration process and steps to proceed here<>.

What do I need to do?

Migrate all federated directories with a SHA-1 or SHA-256 Pilot certificate to an updated IdP configuration.

When do I need to take action?

By October 31, 2020.

What happens if I don’t take action by the required date?

As of November 01, 2020, any directories not migrated will no longer be supported by Adobe. Customers must immediately migrate to an updated configuration to be in compliance and for directory support.

Visit Adobe’s Enterprise Administration User Guide<> to learn more about the self-service feature and steps to complete the required update. Enterprise customers can also input a support ticket via the Adobe Admin Console<> for assistance with the migration.
