Fixed In Version: ipa-4.5.4-10.el7_5.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, the one-time password (OTP) logins required APIs that were not available in the FIPS mode. As a consequence, authentication of OTP and RADIUS failed when the user installed Identity Management (IdM) on a machine with FIPS enabled. This update overcomes the described failure by using a different set of APIs for loading the OTP secret. As a result, IdM now supports the OTP and RADIUS authentication on machines with FIPS enabled.
