Updated openssl-ibmca packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 6.

The openssl-ibmca packages provide a dynamic OpenSSL engine for the IBM eServerCryptographic Accelerator (ICA) crypto hardware on IBM eServer zSeries machines.This update fixes the following bugs:* Prior to this update, an incorrect flag was passed to the elliptic curvecrypto signing method. Consequently, the selftest in the OpenSSL library failedwhen the IBMCA engine was in use. Now, the correct flag is passed, and theOpenSSL selftest succeeds. (BZ#1075183)* Previously, the IBMCA engine truncated the SHA256 hash data computed by theLibrary for IBM Cryptographic Architecture (libica). As a consequence, thecertificate verification process used a malformed hash and failed. Now, thecorrect length is used for the SHA256 data, and certificate verificationproceeds without errors. (BZ#1193071)Users of openssl-ibmca are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, whichfix these bugs.
