Description John Dennis 2015-05-26 20:18:03 UTC
Several python-nss functions/methods state they can read their input from either a string or any file like object (e.g. PKCS12Decoder). There is a bug in the common routine used to read the data for these entry points. It only worked for strings and file objects (or derived from the file object class). It fails to work for file like objects that implement the file interface (e.g. StringIO).
