Description Partha Aji 2007-03-13 22:25:15 UTC
Description of problem:
If you copy paste a satellite certificate into CertificateConfig you will always
end up getting Certificate Parse exception even for valid satellite  certificates...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhn500 satellite

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a satellite 
2. Go to the admin url and Login as admin
3. Select Satellite Tools -> Satellite Configuration -> Certificate
4. Copy the contents of a cert from
and paste it at the text area next to "Certificate Text: *"

Actual results:
Error ->"Could not parse certificate file" with the xml contents escaped, ie
"<xml version>" appears as "xml version" no <, >

Expected results:
Certificate Parsed successfully.

Additional info:

This is related to the fact that we scrub <,>, fields by default to prevent
cross site scripting.. In this case that won't be an issue because the sat cert
content has to be in a specific format for this to function..
