Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1480492
rpm 4.13.0 cannot read signature headers made by rpm 4.13.90
Last modified: 2017-08-23 15:54:33 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1480407 +++
Description of problem:
RPMs generated by RPM 4.13.90 seem to have signature headers that cannot be parsed by 18.104.22.168.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.13.90-0.git14002.1.fc27 (generated rpm file)
rpm-22.214.171.124-41.fc27 (trying to read rpm file)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get an RPM built with rpm-4.13.90 (e.g. https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/net-snmp/5.7.3/24.fc27/aarch64/net-snmp-debugsource-5.7.3-24.fc27.aarch64.rpm)
2. Run rpm -K on it with 126.96.36.199
rpm -K net-snmp-debugsource-5.7.3-24.fc27.armv7hl.rpm
net-snmp-debugsource-5.7.3-24.fc27.armv7hl.rpm: sha1 ?UnknownSigatureType? md5 NOT OK
rpm -K net-snmp-debugsource-5.7.3-23.fc27.aarch64.rpm
net-snmp-debugsource-5.7.3-23.fc27.aarch64.rpm: sha1 md5 OK
Note that the Expected output is generated with an RPM built with RPM 4.13.0.

Okay, funnily enough this is actually a bug in 4.13 which doesn't skip unknown elements in the signature header the way it should, 4.11 and 4.12 have no problems verifying the package(s). This seems to fix it (against 188.8.131.52), but I need to test it some more (I've only into first cup of coffee this morning):

Which Fedora version is used for signing? F26?

So, the exact problem is that rpm 4.13 fails to ignore the unknown SHA256 header digest in rpmkeys -K, which is what the above one-liner fixes. Everything else works fine even without the patch, actual signing included.
Basically the choices are
a) hot-patch whatever is doing the signing with the one-liner
b) hot-patch 4.14 to not generate the SHA256 digest until we have fixed the other fedora versions
--- Additional comment from Panu Matilainen on 2017-08-11 03:02:13 EDT ---
After the second cup of coffee the choice is pretty obvious: time is of the essence, and b) buys as much as we need for practically no cost.
So I've disabled SHA256 header digest generation in rpm 4.14 for now:
This lets us deal with the older versions at leisure instead of paniced running around in circles.
Recommencing rebuilds with the patched 4.14.
