Red Hat Identity Management is a centralized authentication, identity
management and authorization solution for both traditional and cloud based
enterprise environments. It integrates components of the Red Hat Directory
Server, MIT Kerberos, Red Hat Certificate System, NTP and DNS. It provides
web browser and command-line interfaces. Its administration tools allow an
administrator to quickly install, set up, and administer a group of domain
controllers to meet the authentication and identity management requirements
of large scale Linux and UNIX deployments.
A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaw was found in Red Hat Identity
Management. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into
the management web interface, into visiting a specially-crafted URL, the
attacker could perform Red Hat Identity Management configuration changes
with the privileges of the logged in user. (CVE-2011-3636)
Due to the changes required to fix CVE-2011-3636, client tools will need to
be updated for client systems to communicate with updated Red Hat Identity
Management servers. New client systems will need to have the updated
ipa-client package installed to be enrolled. Already enrolled client
systems will need to have the updated certmonger package installed to be
able to renew their system certificate. Note that system certificates are
valid for two years by default.
Updated ipa-client and certmonger packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
were released as part of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2. Future updates will
provide updated packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
This update includes several bug fixes. Space precludes documenting all of
these changes in this advisory. Users are directed to the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.2 Technical Notes for information on the most
significant of these changes, linked to in the References section.
Users of Red Hat Identity Management should upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues.
ipa on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
