Problem summary

  • In our FIPS testing, we discovered that CA bundle still has an
    MD5 root CA for "Thawte Premium Server CA".  In 2010, Thawte
    rebuilt the cert as SHA-1 with the same public key and same
    name.  We need CA bundle to include the SHA-1 cert instead of
    MD5.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    7.0.0 SR5
    6.0.1 SR6
    6.0.0 SR14
    .
    Done.
