Question Certificate used by up2date and rhn_register


The certificate used by up2date and rhn_register to communicate with
the
Red Hat Network reached its end of life on August 28th 2003. Users
attempting to connect to Red Hat Network will see SSL connection or
certificate verification failures.

For each distribution supported by Red Hat, you will find the latest
versions of the RHN client software and instructions on how to perform
an
update listed at this page:

rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt

If you prefer to update just the client certificates, you can follow
the
instructions from this web page:

rhn.redhat.com/help/ssl_cert.pxt

Further information is available by following the links from the
RHN homepage, available at:

rhn.redhat.com/

Thank you for using RHN,

-- the Red Hat Network Team

stitch_n_milo,

What distribution of Redhat Linux are you using? Example: RH9, RH8, Fedora Core 1 or 2 beta?

The certificates that Redhat use I believe are Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) (correct me if I'm wrong Redhat Guru's).

Redhat used this to initiate a secure form of transmission when transferring data from the Redhat update server to your computer.

However, this service is going away for the Redhat project and is now being replaced by Fedora Core ( http://fedora.redhat.com/about/ ) Thus the reason I asked for your distribution.

Slappy

I would consider moving on to Fedora Core or keeping up with the security updates manually. If it were me, I would move on to Fedora Core.

I think you can upgrade from RH9 to Fedora by booting from the cd's but I'm not sure. It's one of those Red Hat specific things and not so much Linux specific. Again I would recommend a complete reinstall with Fedora.

From your post it looks like you performed a security check with the checksum...what are you exactly asking?
