An updated python-paste package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Python Paste provides middleware for building and running Python web applications.
- Previously, the auth_tkt plugin used MD5 checksums, which are not FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) compliant. Consequently, when FIPS compliance mode was active on the system, auth_tkt failed. The auth_tkt plugin has been set to use Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) 256, which is FIPS-compliant, instead of MD5 checksums. As a result, auth-tkt no longer fails in this situation.
All users of python-paste are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
