Doc Text:
It was found that IdM's ca-del, ca-disable, and ca-enable commands did not properly check the user's permissions while modifying CAs in Dogtag. An authenticated, unauthorized attacker could use this flaw to delete, disable, or enable CAs causing various denial of service problems with certificate issuance, OCSP signing, and deletion of secret keys.

Description Andrej Nemec 2017-01-13 17:37:22 UTC
Multiple security issues were found in FreeIPA's 'ca' plugin. Any authenticated but unauthorised user can delete, disable or enable CAs in Dogtag. The impact in the deletion case is denial of service for cert issuance or OCSP signing, and deletion of secret keys. The impact for disablement is denial of service for cert issuance.
