Updated xmlsec1 packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The XML Security Library is a C library based on libxml2 and OpenSSL. It implements the XML Signature Syntax and Processing and XML Encryption Syntax and Processing standards. HMAC is used for message authentication using cryptographic hash functions. The HMAC algorithm allows the hash output to be truncated (as documented in RFC 2104).
