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.
