Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1001739
Support CRL propagation to Capsules
Last modified: 2017-07-26 15:37:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently the CRL from the pulp server is not propagated to the nodes. Katello needs this so that systems who have had their certificates revoked on the server will also have them revoked on the nodes
The interval in which CRLs expire and need to be updated seems different than the interval for syncing nodes. I don't think we want users doing a node sync just to keep their CRLs updated. IMHO, that should be a different mechanism. This bug should not be worked until this is resolved.
With 2.4.0, Pulp implements CRL revocation using the webserver's CRL support which typically is Apache. Users who want to apply CRLs to Pulp servers or Nodes will need to distribute the CRLs outside of Pulp.
CRLs are currently enforced by apache directly, without involvement from pulp. Pulp does not propagate apache configs to nodes, so this would be likely be in the domain of config management.
Put another way, sat6 should have apache configured to use CRLs from *somewhere*, but I don't know what that source is. Whatever the source is, making it available on capsules is outside of pulp's scope.

This isn't going to be implemented in any time in the near future. The current situation is an acceptable tradeoff.
