Prior to this update, the Transport Layer Security (TLS) client advertised support for some elliptic curves that are not supported by it. As a consequence, server could choose unsupported elliptic curve and client would not be able to communicate with the server over the TLS. With this update, OpenSSL TLS client advertises only the curves that are supported by it, and TLS communication with server (using also curves not supported by the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenSSL TLS client) can now be established.
This bug has been copied from bug #1022468 and has been proposed
