customer test environment patch is now available.

As we previously announced:

“On 4.9.2020 announced that the algorithms used in authentication would be updated to harmonise security and protections to SAML2 authentications to be in line with Traficom’s SAML2 profile recommendations. Initially on 15.10.2020 these changes were applied to the customer test environment. Then towards the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021 the changes will be applied to the production environment. Please find the original announcement from here.”


This patch release permits the continued use of your integrated applications with the customer test environment. Detailed information about the changes in this release can be found in SSO 8.4.2 change log.

SSO 8.4.2 can be found in the following location:


SSO 8.3.9 – status

In our original announcement in September we offered an estimate release date for the then supported versions of SSO.  While we encourage all customers to update their installed applications regularly, we recognise that this is not always possible.  At this time SSO 8.3.x is no longer supported, see our Supported Versions table, that said, if you require this patch for your SSO 8.3.x environment, we ask that you please open a ticket with Support or contact your Account Manager.  We will work with you to ensure your environment remains functional with until such time that you can upgrade to a supported version of SSO.

As with all software, Ubisecure would like to encourage you to upgrade your IDS Platform in a timely manner. We release two to three Identity Server platform releases per year, which include feature improvements, corrections to known deviations and security fixes. We use semantic versioning on software releases. Minor versions are shows as, SSO 8.x.0 and CustomerID 5.x.0. As needed, we also will release patch version, SSO 8.5.x or CID 5.5.x. Patch versions will contain requested deviation corrections or essential security fixes. Updating your environment regularly is the best way to ensure you have access to the latest security fixes and the quickest access to essential code corrections such as this one.


Please contact your Integration Partner or Ubisecure Account Representative with any questions. Ubisecure encourages all customers to review and schedule service upgrade to this latest release. Bringing system flexibility and new features to ensure the best user experience possible for your businesses is our goal.
