Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.16
Date Fri, 06 Aug 2010 14:57:42 GMT


I've recently upgraded to 2.2.16 and am encountering some issues. I've noticed the addition
of SSLFIPS, however, I did not see any mention of this in the release notes. I did, however,
see mention of it in the release notes for 2.3.6, interesting. I've compiled against OpenSSL
0.9.8o-fips (FIPS 1.2 module from

I have a web application that uses OpenLDAP and SSH to add/check resources, such as users.
Going through HTTPS and testing the LDAP server configuration (manually entered settings)
to verify that I can communicate with the server properly, the Apache child process segfaults.
The OpenLDAP version is 2.4.23.

[Fri Aug 06 09:17:54 2010] [notice] child pid 15419 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

Has anyone encountered this issue before?

My other issue is when adding an user over HTTPS and having PHP exec() the system's ssh command
to connect to the remote machine and perform a few minor operations. The error message I am
getting is:

digest.c(151): OpenSSL internal error, assertion failed: Digest update previous FIPS forbidden
algorithm error ignored
[Fri Aug 06 09:32:27 2010] [notice] child pid 29661 exit signal Aborted (6)

After researching that error message a bit, it appears to be caused by an MD5 checksum and
MD5 is one of the forbidden algorithms in FIPS.

The above mentioned functionality worked flawlessly in 2.2.15 and below.

Thanks in advanced,
