Fixed In Version: krb5-1.15.1-37.el7_6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6 build of the krb5 system increased compliance with FIPS-140. As a consequence, certain previously permitted configurations that were prohibited by FIPS-140 stopped working. with this update, the changes have been reverted, because krb5 only needs to work in the FIPS mode, not be FIPS compliant. As a result, RHEL 7.6.z should work in the same way RHEL 7.5 did. Please note that Red hat Enterprise Linux 8 does not support these configurations at the moment.
