Subject [Bug 56027] Unable to use TCN on RHEL6 boxes if box is booted in fips mode
Date Fri, 17 Jan 2014 16:33:10 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Christopher Schultz <> ---
This bug will likely require (at least) two separate patches: one for avoiding
double-entry into FIPS mode, one for changing the key sizes used, and possibly
one for creating a native-wrapper around the FIPS_mode function call so Java
can inspect the current status and take appropriate action.

I think the best situation would be to allow the user to specify more than
simply "on" versus "off" for the FIPSmode configuration attribute: it would be
nice to use something like "on" to enable FIPS mode by calling FIPS_mode_set if
necessary, "require" to require that FIPS mode already be enabled (or throw an
exception and refuse to start the connector), or maybe a third option like
"enter" which would attempt to enter FIPS mode and fail if FIPS mode were
already enabled (this is the current behavior).
