Name        : perl-Digest-BubbleBabble
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 0.02
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Digest-BubbleBabble/
Summary     : Create bubble-babble fingerprints
Description :
Digest::BubbleBabble takes a message digest (generated by either of the MD5 or
SHA-1 message digest algorithms) and creates a fingerprint of that digest in
"bubble babble" format. Bubble babble is a method of representing a message
digest as a string of "real" words, to make the fingerprint easier to remember.
The "words" are not necessarily real words, but they look more like words than
a string of hex characters.

Bubble babble fingerprinting is used by the SSH2 suite (and, consequently, by
Net::SSH::Perl, the Perl SSH implementation) to display easy-to-remember key
fingerprints. The key (a DSA or RSA key) is converted into a textual form,
digested using Digest::SHA1, and run through bubblebabble to create the key

Update Information:

This update from upstream fixes a bug affecting input strings with an odd number of characters.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update perl-Digest-BubbleBabble' at the command line.
