Fedora Update Notification
2011-11-27 21:16:27

Name        : gsi-openssh
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 5.8p2
Release     : 3.fc16
URL         : http://www.openssh.com/portable.html
Summary     : An implementation of the SSH protocol with GSI authentication
Description :
SSH (Secure SHell) is a program for logging into and executing
commands on a remote machine. SSH is intended to replace rlogin and
rsh, and to provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and
arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's version of the last free version of SSH, bringing
it up to date in terms of security and features.

This version of OpenSSH has been modified to support GSI authentication.

This package includes the core files necessary for both the gsissh
client and server. To make this package useful, you should also
install gsi-openssh-clients, gsi-openssh-server, or both.

Update Information:

Fixes a problem in gsisshd-keygen script where the keys are created with wrong permissions and the gsisshd fails to load them on startup.

The workaround for already insalled machines is to do: chmod g-r /etc/gsissh/*_key

Fixes 'gsissh -V' output to be in sync with package version.
