Updating ssl cert

The trust policy requires an associated certificate, known as a verification certificate, which is the public key portion of the token-signing certificate.The federation server uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) server authentication certificates to secure Web services traffic for communication with Web clients or the federation server proxy.These certificates are requested and installed through the Internet Information Services (IIS) snap-in.Each federation server uses a token-signing certificate to digitally sign all security tokens that it produces.This is a traditional SSL cert like you would use in IIS for any secure web server.

This will manage not only the alternative client TLS binding but all other bindings on which AD FS sets the SSL certificate as well.AD FS by default performs device certificate authentication on port 443 and user certificate authentication on port 49443 (or a configurable port that is not 443).In this mode, use the powershell cmdlet Set-Adfs Ssl Certificate to manage the SSL certificate.When your SSL certificate isn’t set to auto renew, you have a 90 day window to purchase a renewal credit and apply it to the certificate - from 60 days before to 30 days after the expiration date.Note The recommended way to replace the SSL certificate going forward for an AD FS farm is to use Azure AD Connect.
