The highlights for the 4.7 release include support for BankID RP-API v6.0, support for new Skolfedartion and multiple SAML updates.

BankID Säker Start RP-API v6.0

PAS 4.7 now have support for BankID RP-API v6.0 released mid May. This release is part of BankID “Säker Start” to improve security for BankID users by removing support of starting a BankID transaction where the user fills in their Personnummer. Services should instead use QR Code or Autostart, both already supported by PAS in earlier versions. It is strongly recommended to update to RP-API v6.0, by updating to PAS 4.7, since BankID will end support for earlier versions already May 1st 2024.

PAS 4.7 supports both new v6.0 and previous version, making it possible for the administrator to migrate to v6.0 in a controlled and secure manner. PhenixID will help with guides on best-practice for migration. Don’t hesitate to contact PhenixID for more information about BankID Säker Start and what is needed on the service.
