texinfo should be ported to use NSS library for cryptography.
See the tracking bug for details and links on how it could be done.
Where is cryptography used in texinfo? I have read a bit the infos on the blocker page, but I can't see how it applies to texinfo...
It might have contained perhaps some md5 or other hash implementation. Unfortunately I do not have the logs available anymore. As I do not see any crypto algorithm in the texinfo sources now I am closing the bug.
