Enhancement Advisory libgcrypt enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2012:0484-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-16
Last updated on: 2012-04-16
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated libgcrypt packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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

This update adds the following enhancement:

* With Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode enabled, the
libgcrypt library always started in the soft FIPS mode which allows applications
to use the MD5 cryptographic hash algorithm. The libgcrypt API previously did
not allow the library to programmatically switch from the soft FIPS mode to the
enforced FIPS mode. With this update, if the application does not need MD5
support for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol or non-cryptographic
purposes, libgcrypt can be preset in the enforced FIPS mode. (BZ#810319)

All users of libgcrypt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
add this enhancement.


Solution

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

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