1.101.1. RHBA-2010:0655: bug fix update
New openssl-ibmca packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
openssl-ibmca is a shared object OpenSSL dynamic engine for the IBM eServer Cryptographic Accelerator (ICA).
* previously, the dynamically loaded ibmca engine for OpenSSL failed because key length 4096 for RSA in the engine was not supported. With this update, the ibmca engine uses the Hardware accelerator for key lengths smaller than or equal to 2048 and falls back to software implementation directly from OpenSSL for key lengths greater than 2048. ( BZ#597394
All openssl-ibmca users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
