Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 10:22:17 UTC
pwlib 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 Daniel Veillard 2007-10-23 11:52:47 UTC
Details seems to imply a local fork of the code for Fedora, this doesn't
seems viable unless you accept to take the responsability for the forked
package. I won't mess with security related code, see my comment #5 in
the tracking bug,


Comment 2 John Poelstra 2008-08-28 03:38:30 UTC
What is the next step for this bug?

Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2008-10-09 20:35:00 UTC
Moving this to ptlib component as pwlib is now replaced by it.

I suspect the best way forward would be to provide patches to upstream with options to use openssl or nss.

Comment 4 Peter Robinson 2010-11-30 13:27:13 UTC
Closing as a won't fix unless someone provides a patch.
