Description of problem:
the intermediate Verisign certificate has expired (was valid 4/16/97
through 1/7/04). I either have to update the intermediate certificate
myself (which I did already) or RedHat should put out a new package
with the updated intermediate certificate.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install verisign certificate
2. Browse to server
Actual Results: Received security notice that certificate is either
expired or is not yet valid.
Expected Results: no messages, just surf normally
It was fairly easy to update (fix), but it might be good to release an
update anyway for those people who don't want to or can't spend the
time to manually update each machine they have. Also, I have not
checked RHEL3; I just noticed it on this one machine that uses a
sorry; I later realized it should be mod_ssl and not apache since the
CA bundle is shipped with mod_ssl
<sigh> and the mod_ssl version is currently mod_ssl-2.8.12-3
The intermediate cert which expired was not shipped in the root CA bundle
/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/ca-bundle.crt nor anywhere else in the mod_ssl package
that I'm aware of.
