Description John Matthews 2011-08-31 15:07:32 UTC
Description of problem:
Repo auth is using OpenSSL's X509_STORE_CONTEXT::verify_cert() to validate a certificate.

If this is successful it returns 1, on failure 0.
We could add a callback into M2Crypto and OpenSSL which would tell us more information about why a certificate failed verification.

When a certificate fails verification we want to log a reason in apache's logs.

Comment 1 John Matthews 2012-01-17 17:28:08 UTC
Refer to below m2crypto patches for possible solutions to exposing the verify callback.

Comment 2 Chris Duryee 2014-12-18 00:00:09 UTC
The patched version of m2crypto was removed with commit f435a14. It looks like there is logging in the current cert verification that should be sufficient.

Marking bz as closed/currentrelease but feel free to re-open if you see any particular use cases that are not logged appropriately.
