As per the article published on Authorize.Net, this is what we found.
In short. Yes they are ending direct post or DPM method and you need to take action now. You can no longer create md5 hash keys, your payment gateway will be cut off around may.
Magento 1 there are two options which is suggested by Magento Developers. the Direct Post and just simply authorize.net If your using the direct post method this will no longer work change that to use the authorize.net method.
Magento 2 I am assuming the next release of magento 2 will include this authorize.net extension but until it is included you can install this from the marketplace.
Or you can find another extension available like the CIM method that allows you to store CC on authorize.net servers for future use so that your customers dont have to type their CC info in over again for every order.
Our magento developers can install this updated extension for you or recommend a good replacement like the CIM extensions that are available.
Authorize.Net ending the use of MD5 based hash for transaction response verification to encourage the use of SHA-512 based hash utilizing a Signature Key.

In the API response, transHashSHA2 is the SHA2 element for Authorize.Net API (XML, JSON, SOAP).
You can find the SHA2 element at the end of the API response for Advance Integration Method (AIM). However, the updates are in progress for the same.

x_SHA2_Hash is the SHA2 element for Server Integration Method (SIM) and if you want to utilize Replay Response. For this too, updates are in progress.
There are 30 fields involved in the SHA2 Hash for SIM + Relay Response and Silent Post. They are:
