multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat OpenStack 3.0 (Grizzly)
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.
Python-keystoneclient is the client library and command line utility for
interacting with the OpenStack identity API.
A flaw in Keystone allowed an attacker with access to the web and network
interfaces of services utilizing python-keystoneclient (such as Nova,
Cinder, Swift, Glance, and so on) to continue using PKI tokens that had
expired. This would allow the attacker to continue using the PKI tokens
despite the PKI tokens being expired, giving them continued access to
OpenStack services. (CVE-2013-2104)
This issue was discovered by Eoghan Glynn of Red Hat.
