libarchive FIPS compliance bugs
Last modified: 2018-01-29 18:53:26 EST
Not completely everything works OK in FIPS - even if it is very minor subset of
functionality (basic usage by bsdtar/bsdcpio is OK). The following tests for
./libarchive_tests fails with segfault:
fail with 139 exit 8: test_archive_md5
fail with 139 exit 9: test_archive_rmd160
fail with 139 exit 209: test_read_format_xar
fail with 139 exit 302: test_write_format_xar
It should be handled to show proper message instead of segfault.
Somehow relevant upstream discussion:
At least it should show us whether upstream will be interested in FIPS
related patches or we should adjust libarchive downstram.
Still no response from upstream. We need to know whether upstream
is (or is not) interested in FIPS changes.
