    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.
