Fedora Update Notification

Name        : certmonger
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 0.30
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://certmonger.fedorahosted.org
Summary     : Certificate status monitor and PKI enrollment client
Description :
Certmonger is a service which is primarily concerned with getting your
system enrolled with a certificate authority (CA) and keeping it enrolled.

Update Information:

When used to tell certmonger to start tracking a certificate (and, when its
validity period ends, to attempt to get a fresh certificate from a CA), the
'getcert' utility could not be told to pass a PIN value (or the name of a file
containing the PIN) to the certmonger daemon, so certmonger would not correctly
handle keys stored using encryption.    When a helper process (for example, a
helper used for submitting a signing request to a CA) needed to be stopped, the
process's exit status would not be reaped, so the helper process would become a
zombie.    When self-signing certificates stored in NSS databases, the
certificate notBefore or notAfter values could be incorrect on 32-bit systems.
This update also incorporates init script fixes and translation updates.

  [ 1 ] Bug #624120 - certmonger defunct process ipa-submit
  [ 2 ] Bug #621670 - RFE: there is no way to pass in a key or database password on start-tracking
