Description Sam Fowler 2019-01-24 01:13:01 UTC
The kube-rbac-proxy container as used in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform does not honour TLS configurations, allowing for use of insecure ciphers and TLS 1.0. An attacker could potentially target a weak TLS configuration via a man-in-the-middle attack to discover sensitive information.

The fix for this issue properly applies the configured TLS settings and makes TLS 1.2 the default.
