Issue/Introduction

I have a question about partnerships in version 12.8 SP4. I haven't worked with WSFED partnerships and the question came up if we were able to support using SHA256 with a WSFED partnership?

Environment

Release : 12.8.4

Component : SITEMINDER -POLICY SERVER

Cause

Customer is asking about the encryption algorithm used to sign the WSFED token.

Resolution

Yes.  The ability to sign the WSFED token with SHA256 has been added to the 12.8.4 release of the Policy Server/AdminUI.
