Name        : myproxy
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 5.4
Release     : 1.fc15
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:

PLEASE NOTE: The default behavior for the myproxy-server.config cert_dir option has changed in this release: http://lists.globus.org/pipermail/myproxy-user/2011-March/000231.html

Changes in this release:
* support disabling reverse DNS lookup of server hostname in MyProxy clients by setting the environment variable GLOBUS_GSSAPI_NAME_COMPATIBILITY to STRICT_RFC2818 (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6789)
* prefer to link with libvomsapi instead of libvomsc (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7133)
* fix double-free in myproxy_install_trusted_cert_files() on write error (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7135)
* add myproxy-test -generatecerts option and remove dependency on $HOME (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7139)
* myproxy-server trustroots security improvements:
* cert_dir no longer defaults to /etc/grid-security/certificates.
* Server will ignore requests for trustroots if cert_dir is not defined.
* Server will refuse to start if the trustroots directory set using cert_dir contains any regular files that are not world-readable.
* Once started, the server will skip (i.e. will not return to client)  any regular files found later to NOT have world-readable permissions.
* fix GPT dependency on globus_proxy_utils package (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7151)
