Comment 1 Dmitry Tantsur 2020-02-18 14:08:17 UTC
The patch for the immediate issue is https://review.opendev.org/#/c/708388/, but it doesn't mean that ironic will easily run in FIPS mode. At the very least, we need to make sure MD5 is not used for checksums.

Comment 2 Steven Hardy 2020-02-18 14:19:20 UTC
I seems like a prerequisite for this will be OSP support for FIPS (or at least for standalone Ironic), then we would have to ensure Ironic in the context of IPI baremetal is configured appropriately.

Comment 5 Julia Kreger 2020-04-17 15:34:41 UTC
Moving to post as the fixes have been in the RPM and thus container builds.

Comment 6 Scott Dodson 2020-06-04 17:50:04 UTC
Moving to modified to trigger normal process follow through.
