Disabling Encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of the SP's have requested to disable encryption of response. I ran the command: 

    Set-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust -TargetName "RP Name" -EncryptionCertificate $null

     It cleared out the Encryption tab in the Relying Party Trust property. Now when I am trying to login, after entering my credentials, I am getting the error: HTTP ERROR 401. Authentication Failed: The username or password you entered is incorrect. 

    Is this the right way to disable encryption? Is there any alternative way to do it? Log from event viewer:

    Encountered error during federation passive request.

  • I do this by just removing the encryption certificate in the RP wizard.

  • I don't think the error message you see is relative to you disabling the encryption.

    Can you expand a bit on your test protocol?
