Gmane
From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: pki-core on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Thursday 28th February 2013 22:16:00 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: pki-core security, bug fix and enhancement 
update
Issue Date:        2013-02-21
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-4543
--

Note: The Certificate Authority component provided by this advisory 
cannot be
used as a standalone server. It is installed and operates as a part of 
Identity
Management (the IPA component) in Scientific Linux.

Multiple cross-site scripting flaws were discovered in Certificate 
System. An
attacker could use these flaws to perform a cross-site scripting (XSS) 
attack
against victims using Certificate System's web interface. (CVE-2012-4543)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, due to incorrect conversion of large integers while 
generating a
new serial number, some of the most significant bits in the serial 
number were
truncated. Consequently, the serial number generated for certificates was
sometimes smaller than expected and this incorrect conversion in turn 
led to a
collision if a certificate with the smaller number already existed in the
database. This update removes the incorrect integer conversion so that no
serial numbers are truncated. As a result, the installation wizard 
proceeds as
expected.

* The certificate authority used a different profile for issuing the audit
certificate than it used for renewing it. The issuing profile was for two
years, and the renewal was for six months. They should both be for two 
years.
This update sets the default and constraint parameters in the
caSignedLogCert.cfg audit certificate renewal profile to two years.

This update also adds the following enhancements:

* IPA (Identity, Policy and Audit) now provides an improved way to
determine
that PKI is up and ready to service requests. Checking the service 
status was
not sufficient. This update creates a mechanism for clients to determine 
that
the PKI subsystem is up using the getStatus() function to query the
cs.startup_state in CS.cfg.

* This update increases the default root CA validity period from eight 
years to
twenty years.
