#8023 [System-wide change] Fully remove deprecated and unsafe functions from libcrypt
Closed: Fixed 2 years ago by syeghiay. Opened 2 years ago by besser82.

  • Describe the issue

System-wide change to remove the encrypt, encrypt_r, setkey, setkey_r, and fcrypt functions from the system-default libcrypt library. This includes a so-name bump from libcrypt.so.1 to libcrypt.so.2. A compatibility library for the libcrypt.so.1 library will still be provided, so there is no fallout or negative impact on the build-roots for Fedora 30.

The packages requiring libcrypt.so.1 can either be rebuild during a planned mass-rebuild or by the requestee.

See: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/FullyRemoveDeprecatedAndUnsafeFunctionsFromLibcrypt

  • When do you need this?

Before the mass-rebuild for Fedora 30 starts.

  • When is this no longer needed or useful?

After the completion deadline of system-wide changes for Fedora 30.

  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?

The change cannot be done nor completed.

Where's the corresponding change proposal?
