5.32. coolkey

Updated coolkey packages that resolve two issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Coolkey is a smart card support library for the CoolKey, CAC, and PIV smart cards.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, Coolkey did not recognize Spice virtualized CAC cards unless the card contained at least 3 certificates. This update fixes this issue so that cards with one or two certificates are recognized by Coolkey as expected. Note that this issue may also have affected some non-virtualized CAC cards.
Under certain error conditions, Coolkey could leak memory data because a variable buffer was not being freed properly. With this update, the aforementioned buffer is properly freed, and memory leaks no longer occur.
All users of coolkey are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
