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.

Bug Fix

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.
