Re: [Pki-devel] [PATCH] Patch for /tmp/file vulnerabilities

NACK.  Very few of these changes make any sense.

1. change in cert.py, profile.py, .  This is in code that is used to
unit test the cert.py code.  In order to run the unit test, you have to
specify where the auth file is -- you can't do that with your proposed

In any case, as this is unit test code, its hard to see this as a real
vulnerability.  If you want to remove the /tmp reference, then you
should add a parameter for the user to pass in the correct path.

2. The same thing is true in KerberosName.java.  Its defining the output
file from unit test code.  With your changes, we wont know where the
output will go.

3. The NetkeyKeygenService.java reference is in debug code that has been
commented out.  Why is a change needed here?

4.  The code change in pkicommon.pm is fine, but this code is no longer
used, so do we need to update it?

5.  The code in base/tps-client looks like it is no longer needed.
Rather than trying to patch it, we should remove it unless there is any
reason for it.  It looks like the code for the old TPS.
