2.2. RHEA-2011:0056: certmonger

The certmonger package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Certmonger is a service which is primarily concerned with getting your system enrolled with a certificate authority (CA) and keeping it enrolled.
This new package provides the certmonger utility which can monitor certificates and warn the system administrator when those certificates are no longer valid. If it has access to a private key which corresponds to a certain certificate, and the certificate was issued by a CA which it supports, certmonger can be told to automatically request a new certificate in case the certificate expires. (BZ#578204)
All users requiring certmonger should install this newly-released package, which adds this enhancement.
