impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
Python-keystoneclient is a client library and a command-line utility
for interacting with the OpenStack Identity API.
It was discovered that some items in the S3Token configuration as used by
python-keystoneclient were incorrectly evaluated as strings, an issue
similar to CVE-2014-7144. If the "insecure" option was set to "false", the
option would be evaluated as true, resulting in TLS connections being
vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. Note: The "insecure" option
defaults to false, so setups that do not specifically define
"insecure=false" are not affected. (CVE-2015-1852)
Red Hat would like to thank the OpenStack project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges Brant Knudson from IBM as the original reporter.
