Issue #1837

Updated by jcline@redhat.com over 4 years ago

During installation, the RSA key pairs used to validate messages between the pulp server and pulp consumers are generated in a directory that is world-readable with a umask of 002. After it was written, the permissions are modified to protect the key. For a brief moment, the RSA keys are world-readable. An attacker who has access to the host installing Pulp could theoretically open the file after it is created, but before its permissions are set, and read the private key.
