Name        : myproxy
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 5.3
Release     : 1.fc13
URL         : http://grid.ncsa.illinois.edu/myproxy/
Summary     : Manage X.509 Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security credentials
Description :
MyProxy is open source software for managing X.509 Public Key Infrastructure
(PKI) security credentials (certificates and private keys). MyProxy
combines an online credential repository with an online certificate
authority to allow users to securely obtain credentials when and where needed.
Users run myproxy-logon to authenticate and obtain credentials, including
trusted CA certificates and Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs).

Update Information:

Release 5.3 fixes a myproxy-logon security bug in MyProxy versions
5.0-5.2 that disabled server identity verification:

The myproxy-logon program in MyProxy versions 5.0 through 5.2 does not
enforce the check that the myproxy-server's certificate contains the
expected hostname or identity. The impacted MyProxy versions are
included in Globus Toolkit releases 5.0.0-5.0.2. This issue is
addressed in MyProxy 5.3.

Full details are available:

Other changes in this release:
* if myproxy-logon GSI mutual authentication with the myproxy-server fails, try again with client-side anonymous authentication, in case the client-side GSI credentials are unacceptable to the myproxy-server (for example, signed by an untrusted CA), but the myproxy-server would accept an anonymous client (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7103)
* fix configure checks for globus_usage_stats_send, globus_usage_stats_send_array, and globus_gsi_proxy_handle_set_extensions when installing without existing Globus libraries in LD_LIBRARY_PATH (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7098)
* in myproxy-server-setup, look in /sbin and /usr/sbin for chkconfig or update-rc.d in case they're not in PATH
* add certificate_issuer_subca_certfile option in myproxy-server.config (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7119)
* make all Globus Usage library errors non-fatal (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7111)
