How to update Authorize.Net Direct Post from MD5 to SHA-512

Issue

Magento implements the Authorize.Net Direct Post payment method, using Authorize.Net’s AIM (Advanced Integration Method) and DPM (Direct Post method) APIs, which use MD5 based hash.

Authorize.net will stop supporting MD5 based hash usage on March 14, 2019

Starting from this date, Magento Open Source, Magento Commerce and Magento Cloud merchants will not be able to process payments using Authorize.Net Direct Post payment method. To be able to continue successfully process payments using these methods, merchants need to apply the patch provided by Magento and replace the existing MD5 hash with a Signature Key in the Magento Admin configuration settings.
