Release date Released 2019-11-12

The FreeIPA team would like to announce FreeIPA 4.8.2 release!

It can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/page/Downloads. Builds for Fedora 31 will be available in the official COPR repository.

Highlights in 4.8.2

  • 5608: [RFE] Add Dogtag configuration extensions

Dogtag CA allows to specify additional options in the configuration file used to deploy CA. FreeIPA installers can now pass through an overlay configuration file to fine-tune the CA.

  • 7971: [RFE] Include hint for replication_wait_timeout if timeout fails

In case replica set up times out, suggest increasing replication_wait_timeout option before running the replica installation.


  • 8001 Need default authentication indicators for SPAKE, PKINIT and encrypted challenge preauth

When Kerberos authentication is performed with the help of SPAKE or PKINIT pre-authentication methods, add authentication indicator to resulting tickets. This allows filtering access to resources by a wider variety of pre-authentication methods.

  • 8110 Enable AES SHA 256 and 384 Kerberos enctypes

Allow use of AES SHA 256 and 384 Kerberos encryption types by default for new Kerberos principals.

  • 8111 [FIPS] Don't add camellia KRB5 encsalttypes in FIPS mode

Expose only encryption types allowed in FIPS mode when creating a master in FIPS mode.

  • 8020 support AES in LWCA key replication

Sub-CA key replication between CA replicas now can use AES encryption to wrap the secrets.

  • 8044 Extdom plugin should not return LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT if there are timeout or other errors

An LDAP control used by SSSD for retrieval of information about AD users and groups was extended to properly differentiate lack of information and its unavailability.
