4.62. fipscheck

Updated fipscheck packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fipscheck library is used to verify the integrity of modules validated under FIPS-140-2. The fipscheck package provides helper binaries for creating and verifying HMAC-SHA256 checksum files.


Prior to this update, the fipscheck library was linked without support for read-only relocations (RELRO) flags. The updated fipscheck packages are now provided with partial RELRO support.
Users of fipscheck are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
