Description Chris Stankaitis 2007-04-03 10:39:55 EDT
Description of problem:

For compliance reasons we need to stop all SSL/TLS devices from allowing low
encryption cipher negotiation.  Currently dovecot is throwing up a red-flag in
our scans by allowing low ciphers.  There is a config option as listed at:


Under the "SSL Settings" which lists the following config option:

ssl_cipher_list = ALL:!LOW

placing this option the the /etc/dovecot config results in dovecot not being
able to start and throwing an error regarding that config line:

Starting Dovecot Imap: Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot.conf line
34: Unknown setting: ssl_cipher_list

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

Comment 1 Tomas Janousek 2007-04-04 12:26:53 EDT
This config option was added during the development of the 1.0 branch. I'd have
to backport it.

I'm not sure if we can include this feature addition in a RHEL minor update.
It's present in RHEL5 though.
Comment 2 Chris Stankaitis 2007-04-04 14:03:15 EDT
Thanks for the quick update, I hope they'll let you backport the feature in U6,
with more and more enterprises having to go through regular security
certification the addition of this feature to RHEL4 would make a lot of people
happy IMHO.
