Description Endi Sukma Dewata 2014-11-01 04:20:59 UTC
The current python-nss does not provide the interface needed to perform encryption using public/private key as shown in the following NSS example:


Comment 1 John Dennis 2014-11-11 22:31:29 UTC

Based on current discussions the feeling is you should be using python-cryptography. The (new) stake in the ground is we're not going to extend python-nss unless there is no other way to get the functionality.

Are you able to proceed with just using python-cryptology?

Comment 2 Endi Sukma Dewata 2015-01-26 14:42:12 UTC
Yes, python-cryptography is sufficient to implement password vault in IPA. Thanks.

Comment 3 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-03-03 16:27:37 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
