Description Elio Maldonado Batiz 2012-10-05 00:14:02 UTC
Description of problem: This is needed in order to rebase nss to 3.14 which in turn is needed in order to add TLS 1.1 support to nss. The driver is a corresponding request for mod_nss for Apache 2.2 on rhel-6.4. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL-6.4

Comment 7 Karel Srot 2012-10-15 13:02:31 UTC
could you please summarize changes since last build and point out some items that deserve to be tested (except TLS1.1?

Comment 8 Bob Relyea 2012-10-16 19:50:12 UTC
The changes to util include:

* a buffer overflow function in DER_GetInteger and DER_GetUInteger has been fixed. (calling these functions on a DER integer greater then sizeof(int) on the given platform should not fail).

* upstream as turned off MD5 by default. We should verify that we did not turn off md5 by default here in RHEL 6.

* Several new ciphers were added, but are not enabled since we did not update softoken, so normal NSS regression testing is sufficient.

* Several functions have been moved out of softoken into nss-util. These functions aren't used in RHEL 6 (since we didn't update softoken), so normall regression testing is sufficient here.

I'll leave it to Elio to add or correct anything on Wednesday.


Comment 9 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2012-10-18 18:06:59 UTC
The only thing to add is that we are rebasing to nss-3.14 from nss-3.13.5 having skipped nss-3.13.6. The bugs fixed on 3.13.6 are listed with this query:
I don't see anything striking there. For RHEL-5.9 we rebased nss to 3.13.6 so a review of that test suite is worthwhile to pick up any tests you may have added there.

Comment 11 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2013-01-09 21:25:23 UTC
The nss-util- build was to fix an inconsistency in the n-v-r tags in the sepc file, no code changes.
