Fixed In Version: openssl-1.1.1c-9.el8
Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
.OpenSSL generates a malformed `status_request` extension in the `CertificateRequest` message in TLS 1.3 OpenSSL servers send a malformed `status_request` extension in the `CertificateRequest` message if support for the `status_request` extension and client certificate-based authentication are enabled. In such case, OpenSSL does not interoperate with implementations compliant with the `RFC 8446` protocol. As a result, clients that properly verify extensions in the `CertificateRequest` message abort connections with the OpenSSL server. To work around this problem, disable support for the TLS 1.3 protocol on either side of the connection or disable support for `status_request` on the OpenSSL server. This will prevent the server from sending malformed messages.

Description Hubert Kario 2019-09-04 19:31:12 UTC
Description of problem:
when OpenSSL is set up to support status_request extension and ask for client certificates, the CertificateRequest message will include a malformed status_request extension (a copy of the one sent in Certificate message).

Additional info:
bug 1737471

I have not tried to reproduce it with RHEL version, but given information from above bugs, it does look like RHEL's version of OpenSSL is also affected.
