Enhancement Advisory libgcrypt enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2011:0515-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-05-19
Last updated on: 2011-05-19
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.1.z)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

An updated libgcrypt package that introduces a feature enhancement is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The libgcrypt library provides general-purpose implementations of various
cryptographic algorithms.

This updated libgcrypt package includes the following enhancement:

* In FIPS mode, libgcrypt can now use a configurable source of RNG (Random
Number Generator) seed. On systems with sufficient amount of entropy gathered
from the kernel entropy sources or systems with hardware RNGs, the system
administrator can add the "/etc/gcrypt/rngseed" symbolic link pointing to the
"/dev/random" device node or a hardware RNG device. This symbolic link will be
then opened and read by the libgcrypt library to initialize its RNG. (BZ#703490)

All users of libgcrypt are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
adds this enhancement.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
