Description Kurt Seifried 2012-11-05 16:30:42 EST
Within the OpenStack keystone package the file /etc/keystone/ec2rc is world 
readable and contains:


Also please note that the /etc/keystone/ directory should probably not be world
readable at all.
Comment 1 Alan Pevec 2012-11-06 06:59:10 EST
/etc/keystone/ec2rc is not included in openstack-keystone RPM, it's produced by sample_data.sh script

We'll patch that part out, neither sample script nor ec2rc file is documented in our guide: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_OpenStack_Preview/1/html/Getting_Started_Guide/index.html

> Also please note that the /etc/keystone/ directory should probably not be world
readable at all.

Instead of proposed patch, we cloud just fix that in spec:

-%dir %{_sysconfdir}/keystone
+%dir %attr{0750, root, keystone} %{_sysconfdir}/keystone
