As a result of rebase to openssl-1.0.1e upstream the Next Protocol Negotiation extension of TLS protocol is now supported by OpenSSL. This extension allows to negotiate which application protocol will be used by the application already during the TLS handshake.
Description of problem:
Current openssl version does not support 'Next Protocol Negotiation'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Available in upstream version 1.0.1
NPN is required for HTTP2.0(SPDY)
The man page fix is not present in openssl-1.0.1e-10.el6
The patch is available here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=780726 as an attachment for bug 924250.
I'm assuming that we'll see TLSv1.2 and GCM ciphers come through with this version: Any idea of the release details, is this likely RHEL 6.5 or an independent errata update?
I notice this version is in the 6.5 beta...
Yes, it is planned to be released in RHEL-6.5.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
