[copy of https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=813243 ]

Description of problem:

I found that certtool writes broken Key Usage extensions to generated
certificates. For example, when using the follwing template (from the
mod_gnutls test suite) to create a CA, neither of the requested flags
(certificate signing and CRL signing) is set.

cn="Testing Authority"
ca
cert_signing_key
crl_signing_key

The key usage extension ends up present but empty. This leads to all
certificates issued by the CA getting rejected because signing
certificates violates the certificate's constraints. I've reported the
bug upstream [1] and there is a simple patch [2]. Please apply it to the
version in Sid.
