    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1783.html

    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated python-keystoneclient packages that fix one security issue and one
    bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0
    for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
    impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
    gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
    References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 for RHEL 6 - noarch
    
    3. Description:
    
    Python-keystoneclient is a client library and a command line utility for
    interacting with the OpenStack Identity API.
    
    It was found that Python-keystoneclient treated all settings in paste.ini
    files as string types. If the "insecure" option were set to any value in a
    paste.ini configuration file, it would be evaluated as true, resulting in
    TLS connections being vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks.
    (CVE-2014-7144)
    
    Note that when the "insecure" option was not set in paste.ini, it evaluated
    to false, and verification was performed.
    
    This update also fixes the following bug:
    
    * Previously, when attempting to enable the use of the s3_token middleware,
    for use with the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) APIs, a "No
    module named webob" error was returned. (BZ#1141933)
    
    All python-keystoneclient users are advised to upgrade to these updated
    packages, which correct these issues.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.

    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

    1143808 - CVE-2014-7144 python-keystoneclient: TLS certificate verification disabled
