#12854 closed defect (fixed)

Clicking on the Admin Users link generates "error:060800A3:digital envelope routines:EVP_DigestInit_ex:disabled for fips"

Reported by: adrya.stembridge@… Owned by: Jun Omae
Priority: high Component: AccountManagerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: fips, md5, sha1
Cc: Trac Release:

Description (last modified by Ryan J Ollos)

I recently upgraded our server from EL6 to EL7, however the major change is that this system is now running in FIPS mode. When systems are running in FIPS mode, MD5 hashing is not available.

Trac works OK, except when I go to Admin - Users ( The following error appears instead of the Users page:

Trac detected an internal error: 
"ValueError: error:060800A3:digital envelope routines:EVP_DigestInit_ex:disabled for fips"

Trac maintainers are addressing a similar error with by adding a configuration item allowing admins to select MD5 (default) or SHA1 for the digest algorithm. Previously, MD5 was hard coded into the python scripts.

There are 3 uses of hashlib.md5 in accountmanagerplugin/trunk/acct_mgr/,493,499#L465. I'll need to study the code to see if it's a simple matter of replacing the md5 hash method with another hash method.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by adrya.stembridge@…

I noticed that as well. Could hash type be set as a config option rather than hard coding?

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by adrya.stembridge@…

The attached works fine. I replaced md5 with sha1.

Note that my trac.ini [account-manager] section also contains htpasswd_hash_type = sha1

Could you please post patch as unified diff format rather than modified file? See trac:wiki:TracDev/SubmittingPatches.

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by adrya.stembridge@…

Yes, I'll work on this ASAP. Will be out of town this weekend, look for it next week. This would be my very first submitted patch to anything. :D

comment:11 Changed 4 years ago by adrya.stembridge@…

The updated file works fine - this issue could be marked closed, or once verified perhaps rolled into production?

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by Jun Omae

I noticed an issue about the hexdigest while refactoring the patch. Same hexdigest can be generated because account, authenticated and name are simply concatenated.

account authenticated name concatenated string
foo 1 b0ah foo1b0ah
foo1b 0 ah foo1b0ah

Work around is to pad null byte between values:
