Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1252540
katello-certs-check should check the certificate type
Last modified: 2017-08-01 16:35:00 EDT
Description of problem:
We were under impression that the custom certificate needed to be a ca cert. It needs to be a server cert. However running katello-certs-check did not complain about this. It did give problems later in the process (yum was not able to communicate with satellite)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Create a custom ca cert, signed by a custom root ca and feed it to the katello-certs-check. It doesn't complain.
Steps to Reproduce:
Validation unsuccessful, wrong certificate type
Yes, the check script is mainly checking the formats of the cert files, but it not bulletproof and we still need to document the requirements. For example, we can't verify with the script, if the CN matches the needs (to match the fqdn of the server it will be used on),
