Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185577
certutil -R doesn't like the -y flag
Last modified: 2008-07-11 19:39:17 EDT
Description of problem:
When I run "certutil -R" and supply an email address using the -y flag, I get an
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /tmp/z
2. certutil -d /tmp/z -N
3. certutil -d /tmp/z -R -s 'cn=Nalin Dahyabhai' -a -o /tmp/z/nalin.req -y
I get this error message:
certutil -y: incorrect public exponent 0.Must be 3, 17, or 65537.
certutil would usually ask me to help it seed its RNG, and proceed as normally
This bug is not about the RPM package, but about behaviour in the core NSS
product. I filed bug
Resolving as UPSTREAM, I hope that's the right thing to do.
