Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes CVE-2018-20685 (the first 'variant') and backports several fixes to unbreak ECDSA authentication from PKCS#11, certificate authentication and so on.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
