Report from WLCG MW Officer

Updates from Technical Providers

The Globus update that, among other things, changes the default host verification mode to strict rfc 2818 is now in EPEL stable.

The setting can be changed in /etc/grid-security/gsi.conf, but the new default is considered more secure so changing it back to hybrid mode is not recommended.

To change the setting temporary without affecting every process on the machine the environment variable can be used:


The update also contains an updated globus-gridftp-server package (10.4) and the corresponding rebuild of dpm-dsi (1.9.7-6). This update was tested by the DPM developers.

The status of the globus-xio-udt-driver update is that the version in EPEL testing was updated from 1.21 to 1.23. The difference between the versions is that in the new version the patch that was applied in packaging to allow building using older versions of some of the dependencies was accepted upstream. So the patch that was applied before is now dropped.
