"They're wrong, starting with the fact that public keys and certificates
don't create signatures, private keys do. You can't be uploading a
certificate that does anything related to this problem unless you're also
uploading the corresponding private key for it to use, which would be silly
Actually, yes, they require the customer to generate the RSA certificate
public and private key with length 4096. The portal has me configure my IDP
instance name, metadata (these seem normal), but then fill in what their
entity ID is following their guidelines, upload a certificate and private
key. From that, they have a button to generate the SP metadata. The signing
certificate in that metadata is the one I've uploaded.
I will check with them on the signing of the AuthnRequests.
