Updated rhpki-util, rhpki-common, and rhpki-ca packages that fix a security
issue are now available for Red Hat Certificate System 7.2.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
Red Hat Certificate System (RHCS) is an enterprise software system designed
to manage enterprise Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) deployments.
It was found that new revocations performed while a Certificate Revocation
List (CRL) was being generated could potentially cause revoked certificates
at the upper end of the serial number range to not appear on the CRL for a
period of time. A user who has a revoked but otherwise valid certificate
could take advantage of this issue and bypass the revocation list, although
in practice they would have no way of influencing which revoked certificate
entries were missing or the time period. (CVE-2007-4994)
The updated packages apply a bug fix for a 404 error caused by the server
not handling OCSP requests in the GET method.
Users of Red Hat Certificate System should upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a patch to correct this issue.
