CVE-2012-5518 vdsm: certificate generation upon node creation
Last modified: 2013-03-25 06:11:08 EDT
When new node image is being created, vdsm.rpm is added to the node image and self-signed key (and certificate) is created. This key/cert allows vdsm to start and serve requests from anyone who has a matching key/cert which could be anybody holding the node image.
