Description Geetika Kapoor 2018-06-21 15:33:29 UTC
Description of problem:

QE faced installation issues  where if NSS_USE_DECODED_CKA_EC_POINT=1 is set and do a pki-server subsystem-cert-validate on ca signing cert it gives validation error.

Not sure if we need NSS_USE_DECODED_CKA_EC_POINT=1 for ECC. If it is not needed,
probably we can remove it from HttpClient files and in that case RHCS documents also needs to be changed.

    Bug 1593805  Better understanding of NSS_USE_DECODED_CKA_EC_POINT for ECC
    This patch removes the outdated reference to EC environment variable
    NSS_USE_DECODED_CKA_EC_POINT for ECC in the HttpClient command line usage.
    More info in the usage are updated as well for correctness and clarity.
