Updated coolkey packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Coolkey is a smart card support library for the CoolKey, Common Access Card (CAC), and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart cards.

Bug Fix

A certain variable was previously uninitialized in the coolkey code. If that variable inherited a single "magic" value, coolkey could fail to present any certificates or keys that were stored in a smart card controlled by coolkey (a CAC, PIV, or coolkey card). Consequently, although the smart card was recognized, the certificates and keys were not visible to some applications. With this update, that variable is now initialized to a safe value and coolkey now presents its certificates and keys properly.
Users of coolkey are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
