Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1023471
Increase the saved random-seed to 4K
Last modified: 2016-11-25 08:07:41 EST
Description of problem:
Due to updated crypto requirements, we need to increase the saved seed size from 512 bytes to 4096 bytes in /etc/rc.sysinit. The spec file also saves a seed during install and this needs bumping up also. This affects the current planned FIPS-140 certification.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ls -l /var/lib/random-seed
Patch committed to upstream rhel branch
