SecurID Statement on Release of Software Token for macOS 4.2.2 to Address Certificate Issue
August 26, 2021
Earlier this week, SecurID Software Token for macOS was impacted by a change made by Apple to cease support for Symantec as a trusted Certificate Authority. Software Token 4.2.1 for macOS uses Symantec-signed certificates as part of the product’s internal software integrity check.
Apple has acknowledged the unforeseen customer impact across multiple vendors’ products, including SecurID, Cisco AnyConnect, Citrix Receiver, and others, and has temporarily rolled back this change while working with RSA and other vendors to remediate the situation.
To address this issue, on August 25, 2021, SecurID released SecurID Software Token 4.2.2 for macOS. This release replaces the Symantec-issued certificate with one issued by another certificate authority. SecurID recommends that all users impacted by this issue upgrade immediately to version 4.2.2.
