Akamai SureRoute Reminder

In Authorize.net payment solution, Akamai is currently optional to route all server traffic. But it will be mandatory starting from June 30th, 2016. Merchants should update their websites or payment solutions to make use of the Akamai’s benefits.

If the merchant’s solution uses a firewall, please refer the Akamai update to avoid disruptions in the transaction process – To Know More

 

RC4 Cipher Disablement

In an effort to ensure that all of the merchant’s server-to-server communications with the Authorize.Net platform will maintain the highest levels of security, Authorize.net will be disabling the RC4 cipher suite during the first half of 2016. As of now, if merchants have a solution that relies on RC4 to communicate with Authorize.net servers, please update it to a current, high-security cipher as soon as possible. Please refer this blog post for more information, To Know More

 

Transaction and Batch ID Reminder

As per the recent updates, now it will be possible to receive Authorize.Net IDs like Transaction ID, Batch ID, etc. are in non-sequential order. In case if merchant’s websites have any functionality that expects Authorize.Net-generated IDs to be sequential, then update it immediately for a smooth functioning of the system. Additionally, please make sure that the solution does not restrict any Authorize.Net ID field to 10 digits. If it’s required to define a limit when storing any of Authorize.Net IDs, the limit should be an unsigned integer (up to 20 digits).

 

TLS Remediation for PCI DSS Compliance

Authorize.net will be disabling TLS 1.0 in a sandbox and will be in production early 2017. TLS 1.2 is currently the strongest available protocol, and Authorize.net strongly urge all merchants and developer partners to use it for their API integrations.
