Description Moises Guimaraes 2020-03-03 11:15:51 UTC
The Red Hat OpenStack Security DFG has an effort to enable TLS in all OpenStack endpoints called "TLS Everywhere". It was reported by one of our customers that the caching service was not covered by it. Therefore, we need to enable TLS on Memcached.

Comment 1 Moises Guimaraes 2020-03-03 11:19:36 UTC
This feature is also required in OpenStack Platform 13, which uses RHEL 7. So I'd like to raise the discussion on how hard is to get this backported since RHEL 7 has Memcached 1.4.x while the TLS feature only came up in 1.5.13 and also depends on a newer version of OpenSSL.

Great, thanks Tomas.
