Description David Woodhouse 2008-09-30 10:21:58 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: This package provides an OpenSSL "engine" which lets OpenSSL handle keys stored in a TPM.

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2008-09-30 10:25:57 UTC
I am probably a poor choice of maintainer for this package. Does anyone with more clue want it?

Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2008-09-30 13:32:43 UTC
New patch to store TSS key 'blobs' in a text file rather than in a separate binary-only file, so that users can have a single '.pem' file with their identity, as they can without the TPM.

If the trousers-tech list ever accepts my subscription attempt, I'll post it there.

Comment 3 Rajiv Andrade 2008-10-01 14:04:03 UTC
Hi David,

I can't see you subscription request to trousers-tech neither a post from you awaiting approval, did I miss something?


Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2008-10-01 15:33:35 UTC
I've just tried again, at

I haven't tried posting there, but I did post to trousers-users on the 25th of September, subject 'TPM support in my application'. That doesn't appear in the archives either (but if you find it, don't bother; I have patches for most of it now).

Would you like to own the openssl-tpm-engine package? I could only be a package-monkey for it, not a real maintainer.

Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2008-10-03 10:32:34 UTC
Fixed tspi library handling so it doesn't depend on trousers-devel, but only on trousers, and that dependency is picked up properly by RPM.

Comment 6 Jason Tibbitts 2009-07-14 22:45:51 UTC
Another old one; unfortunately it fails to build:

+ aclocal
+ automake --add-missing -c --foreign Libtool library used but `LIBTOOL' is undefined   The usual way to define `LIBTOOL' is to add `AC_PROG_LIBTOOL'   to `' and run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.   If `AC_PROG_LIBTOOL' is in `', make sure   its definition is in aclocal's search path.
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.9uMxE4 (%build)

Comment 7 Thomas Spura 2009-10-23 20:55:51 UTC
Here is a different build error:

./libtool: line 775: X--tag=CC: command not found
./libtool: line 808: libtool: ignoring unknown tag : command not found
./libtool: line 775: X--mode=compile: command not found
./libtool: line 925: *** Warning: inferring the mode of operation is deprecated.: command not found
./libtool: line 926: *** Future versions of Libtool will require --mode=MODE be specified.: command not found

and many more...

David, are you still working on this?

Comment 8 David Woodhouse 2009-10-23 22:56:11 UTC
Ew, libtool. I think I'll rewrite it to use proper Makefiles instead. Yes, I'd still like this to go in.

Comment 9 Jason Tibbitts 2009-11-08 01:27:24 UTC
Indicating that this doesn't build; please clear the whiteboard when that's been fixed.

Comment 10 Jason Tibbitts 2010-01-25 23:15:01 UTC
This is still marked as not building.  Can we fix that up or close this ticket out?

Comment 11 David Woodhouse 2010-01-26 05:28:53 UTC
The autohell problems are the least of my worries right now -- when I make it build against OpenSSL 1.0.0 it doesn't _work_ either.

I'm working on it, but slowly.

Comment 12 Jason Tibbitts 2010-11-02 21:21:10 UTC
And, after a few days short of a year, still marked as not building.  I saw that something happened back in April but I don't know if there's still any desire to get this package in.
