Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 10:19:10 UTC
iscsi-initiator-utils should be ported to use NSS library for cryptography.
See the tracking bug for details and links on how it could be done.

Comment 1 Mike Christie 2007-10-23 18:51:53 UTC
Is iscsi-initiator-utils on the needs conversion list because its spec has the

BuildRequires: openssl-devel


I think iscsi-initiator-utils probably does not need that line. In the Makefile,
we do not seem to be building against any libraries that look crypto related,
and it looks like it implements its own md5 sha1 code.

Is this bugzilla for iscsi-initiator-utils to not do its won md5 and sha1 code
and instead use the NSS lib?


Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2007-10-23 19:15:01 UTC
If the md5 and sha1 is used for security relevant operations then yes, the
built-in source should be replaced with calls to NSS lib.
