Description Noel McLoughlin 2016-03-13 17:27:25 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1278582 +++

Description of problem:

During a makecert operation, the genkey leaves a 'tmprequest' file in $PWD on the file system. This 'tmprequest' file should be deleted after makecert operation completes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Actual results:

# genkey --days 365 --makeca f24.example.com
/usr/bin/keyutil -c makecert -g 2048 -s "CN=rawhide.example.com, OU=Testing, O=Frog, L=Frog, ST=Frog, C=IE" -v 24 -a -z /etc/pki/tls/.rand.6806 -o /etc/pki/CA/f24.example.com -k /etc/pki/CA/private/f24.example.com
cmdstr: makecert

command:  makecert
keysize = 2048 bits
subject = CN=rawhide.example.com, OU=Testing, O=Frog, L=Frog, ST=Frog, C=IE
valid for 24 months
random seed from /etc/pki/tls/.rand.6806
output will be written to /etc/pki/CA/f24.example.com
output key written to /etc/pki/CA/private/f24.example.com

Generating key. This may take a few moments...

Made a key
Opened tmprequest for writing
/usr/bin/keyutil Copying the cert pointer
Created a certificate
Wrote 1682 bytes of encoded data to /etc/pki/CA/private/f24.example.com 
Wrote the key to:

[root@rawhide ~]# ll
total 20
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root   10 Mar  9 22:14 ansible_hosts
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Feb 13 19:29 Envs
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root  621 Feb 18 23:45 rpm
drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 4096 Mar  4 16:42 stuff
-rw-r-----. 1 root root 1043 Mar 13 21:09 tmprequest   <==== TMPFILE IN $PWD

[root@rawhide ~]# date
Sun Mar 13 21:09:45 GMT 2016

Expected results:


Made a key
Opened tmprequest for writing
/usr/bin/keyutil Copying the cert pointer
Removed tmprequest file     <====== TMPFILE REMOVED FROM $PWD
Created a certificate

Additional info:

This behaviour is observed in RHEL 6.6 also.
Comment 1 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 00:26:18 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
