Sqlite SHA-1

Summary

Removal of deprecated crypto algorithm SHA-1 from sqlite.

Owner


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 35
  • Last updated: 2021-07-09
  • FESCo issue: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Release notes tracker: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

The use of SHA-1 is no longer permitted for Digital Signatures or authentication in RHEL-9. Due to this reason, there is a need to remove SHA-1 extension from sqlite in RHEL-9 and therefore also Fedora. The removal of the extension was discussed with sqlite upstream development, who confirmed, that it is safe to remove it and should not impact other functionality of sqlite.

Feedback

Benefit to Fedora

This change brings update in terms of removing usage of deprecated crypto algorithms as users should not use them. Also it keeps Fedora project up-to-date with the newest RHEL release, what is beneficial for future releases.
