Description:



This update for libgcrypt fixes the following issues:

  • FIPS: Restore the full _gcry_global_constructor function to run the self-test from the constructor (bsc#1164950).
  • FIPS: Remove an unneeded check in _gcry_global_constructor (bsc#1164950)
  • FIPS: Fix drbg to be threadsafe (bsc#1167674)
  • FIPS: Run self-tests from constructor during power-on (bsc#1166748) * Set up global_init as the constructor function:
    * Relax the entropy requirements on selftest. This is especially important for virtual machines to boot properly before the RNG is available:
  • FIPS: Switch the PCT to use the new signature operation (bsc#1165539)
