We will not have the HW required in time for RHEL6, therefore we are quiting this request. We will open new ones for a future release
opencryptoki 2.2.8 is built in Fedora
------- Comment From email@example.com 2009-10-23 13:47 EDT-------
Red Hat please update opencryptoki to version 2.3:
The 2.3 version have some advantages compared to the 2.2.8 version:
* It contains support for libica 2.0
* It has support for 4096 bit keys
Since in RHEL 6, libica 2.0.2 will be provided, it would make sense to provide
also opencryptoki 2.3
This bug is in MODIFIED status since opencryptoki-2.2.8-5.el6 has been included in RHEL 6.0 as per comment 3.
Since comment 4 is a new request, we ask that IBM create a new bug requesting opencryptoki-2.3.
Fixed in 'opencryptoki-2.2.8-5.el6', included in compose 'RHEL6.0-20091029.0'.
Moving to ON_QA.
IBM is signed up to test and provide feedback.
