Safeguard for Privileged Sessions On Demand Hosted - Release Notes

Upgrade and installation instructions

The One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions appliance is built specifically for use only with the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions software that is already installed and ready for immediate use.

To upgrade to One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions6.13.1

For step-by-step instructions on upgrading to SPS6.13.1, see Upgrade Guide.

NOTE: Due to legal reasons, installation packages of the external indexer application will be available only from the SPS web interface. After SPS versions 6.4 and 6.0.3 are released, the installation packages will be removed from our website.


Starting from 6.10.0, SPS (SPS) has changed to hardened SSL settings. As a result, during TLS session establishment, the following items are not considered secure:

  • Private keys and X.509 certificates having RSA or DSA keys shorter than 2048 bits, or ECC keys shorter than 224 bits.

  • Certificates (other than Root CA certificates) with signatures that use the SHA-1 or the MD5 hashing algorithm.

With the hardened SSL settings, SPS will not connect to remote systems that are protected with weak certificates.

You cannot upgrade SPS if your configuration contains insecure certificates, keys or certificate chains in any of the following sections:

  • SPS web interface

  • internal CA certificate

  • connection policy TLS settings

  • client X.509 credentials for external LDAP, SMTP or Syslog connections

  • server X.509 certificates for external SMTP or Splunk servers

  • external indexer credentials (only writable over the REST API)

  • CA certificates in Trusted CA Lists and Trust Stores

Note that the certificates and keys that are used for signing, timestamping, encryption or decryption are not affected by this change.

About feature releases

This is a feature release, which means that it will be supported for 6 months after the release date or 2 months after the release of a succeeding feature release (whichever date is later). It also means that if you are running a previous feature release (such as versions 6.1), you have 2 months to upgrade to version 6.13.1 if you want to keep running on a supported release.

For a full description of long-term-supported and feature releases, open the SPS product page on the Support Portal and navigate to Self Service Tools > Product Support > Product Life Cycle & Policies > Product Support Policies > Software Product Support Lifecycle Policy.

Downgrading from a feature release

Do NOT downgrade from a feature release.


Downgrading from a feature release is not supported. If you upgrade from an LTS release (for example, 4.0) to a feature release (4.1), you have to keep upgrading with each new feature release until the next LTS version (in this case, 5.0) is published.

Verify successful installation

Navigate to Basic Settings > System > Version details and verify that SPS is running version 6.13.1 of the firmware. If not, it means that the upgrade process did not complete properly and SPS performed a rollback to revert to the earlier firmware version. In this case, complete the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Basic Settings > Troubleshooting > Create support bundle and click Create support bundle.

  2. Save the resulting ZIP file.

  3. contact our Support Team and send them the file. They will analyze its contents to determine why the upgrade was not completed and assist you in solving the problem.
