Description

This is an update to the set of CA certificates released with NSS version 3.18.1

However, the package modifies the CA list to keep several legacy CAs still trusted for compatibility reasons. Please refer to the project URL for details.

If you prefer to use the unchanged list provided by Mozilla, and if you accept any compatibility issues it may cause, an administrator may configure the system by executing the 'ca-legacy disable' command.

This update adds a manual page for the ca-legacy command.

This update changes the names of the possible values in the ca-legacy configuration file. It still uses the term legacy=disable to override the compatibility option and follow the upstream Mozilla.org decision. However it now uses the term legacy=default for the default configuration, to make it more obvious that the legacy certificates won't be kept enabled forever.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
