librsync is not FIPS 140-2 complaint with MD5
Last modified: 2013-08-21 03:50:25 EDT
Description of problem:
librsync seems to use MD5 which is unavailable in a FIPS environment. I am currently attempting to use duplicity (which uses librsync) which fails under FIPS.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable FIPS in kernel
2.Run librsync dependant program such as duplicity
3.ValueError: error:060800A3:digital envelope routines:EVP_DigestInit_ex:disabled for fips
ValueError: error:060800A3:digital envelope routines:EVP_DigestInit_ex:disabled for fips
librsync detects FIPS environment or by default selects at least SHA-1, preferably SHA256
NOTABUG. Found the issue is in duplicity directly.
