Name        : certmonger
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.65
Release     : 1.fc18
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:

This update incorporates changes which force the certmonger daemon to only perform actions which might write to an NSS database one at a time, to avoid corrupting those databases.

* Tue Jan  8 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 0.65-1
- fix a crash in the self-tests
* Tue Jan  8 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 0.64-1
- at startup, if we resume the state machine for a given certificate to a state
  which expects to have the newly-added lock already acquired, acquire it
  before moving on with the certificate's work (still aimed at fixing #883484)
* Wed Dec 19 2012 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 0.63-1
- serialize access to NSS databases and the running of pre- and post-save
  commands which might also access them (possibly fixing part of #883484)
* Thu Nov 29 2012 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 0.62-1
- add a -u flag to getcert to enable requesting a keyUsage extension value
- request subjectKeyIdentifier extensions from CAs, and include them in
  self-signed certificates
- request basicConstraints from CAs, defaulting to requests for end-entity
- when requesting CA certificates, also request authorityKeyIdentifier
- add support for requesting CRL distribution point and authorityInfoAccess
  extensions that specify OCSP responder locations
- don't crash when OpenSSL can't build a template certificate from a request
  when we're in FIPS mode
- put NSS in FIPS mode, when the system booted that way, except when we're
  trying to write certificates to a database
- fix CSR generation and self-signing in FIPS mode with NSS
- fix self-signing in FIPS mode with OpenSSL
- new languages from the translation team: mai, ml, nn, ga
* Tue Nov 27 2012 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 0.61-3
- backport change from git to not choke if X509_REQ_to_X509() fails when we're
  self-signing using OpenSSL
- backport another change from git to represent this as a CA-rejected error

  [ 1 ] Bug #893611 - Extend lock on NSS database to include post command scripts
