Description Bob Relyea 2013-09-23 16:25:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Current composes are missing nss-softokn-fips RPM of nss-softokn package. Content of this RPM was split from nss-softokn RPM and therefore should be added to all variants/channels where nss-softokn RPM currently is.

Without this login with fips=0 will fail QA.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2013-09-23 16:38:39 EDT
Why would this make fips=0 fail (as opposed to fips=1)?

In any case looks more or less like a dup of bug 1009708.
Comment 2 Bob Relyea 2013-09-23 16:47:00 EDT
It would guarrentee fips=1 would fail for users of libfreebl (like libcrypt.so: part of glibc and required for login).

It could cause users that put NSS into FIPS mode (independent of the system fips flag). This is things like servers using modutil to turn of FIPS mode, or users clicking the enable FIPS button in the browser. I don't know how many customers this affects.

It currently has not effect in all other cases, but once the rest of the fips code is in place, it will cause the FIPS integrity check to run, even in non-fips mode, so at the very least it needs to be removable.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2013-09-23 17:13:03 EDT
Right, but comment #0 said it made fips=0 fail, which didn't make much sense to me.
