As per the KB article http://www.ca.com/us/support/ca-support-online/product-content/knowledgebase-articles/tec618461.aspx , policy server is not able to convert binary attribute to hexadecimal on its own.

 

Request to implement the same with the policy servers as other sso products like ADFS is able to do so on its own without the need of the conversion to be done at the directory level. Our management is seeing this as a flaw with siteminder product, as an additional overhead task is to be performed at the directory level for the entire organization's user base and Microsoft team are pushing for ADFS product to be implemented for office 365 project due to this siteminder limitation.

Thank you for your contribution of an enhancement idea to the CA Community. CA is continually working to improve its software and services to best meet the needs of its customers.

Based on current roadmap priorities and/or the limited amount of community support for this idea over the last year (please see this document describing how we are reviewing ideas: https://communities.ca.com/docs/DOC-231170123), we are not accepting this idea into the product backlog. Therefore, it is being moved to a “Not Planned” status.

That is not the ideal solution as there is no BASE64 value defined in the AD. ADFS product has the capability of reading the binary value and converts it in to BASE64 on the fly.

use objectGUID;binary for BASE64 value instead of just objectGUID in partnership configuration
