New Percona Package Signing Key Requires Update on RHEL and CentOS

percona release package signing

On December 20th, 2018 we began to sign our packages with a new encryption key. Our percona-release package contains both the latest and older package signing keys. However, older versions of the percona-release rpm package do not contain our latest key. Users with older percona-release packages installed, that have not been updated, may see an error message when trying to install our newer packages.

Redhat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS users may see an error similar to the following:

The GPG keys listed for the "Percona-Release YUM repository - x86_64" repository are already installed but they are not correct for this package.
Check that the correct key URLs are configured for this repository.

Thankfully,  the solution to this problem is simple. You will need to update your percona-release package before installing packages that are signed with the latest encryption key:

$ sudo yum update percona-release

Ubuntu and Debian systems will not encounter this error as package signing and key verification works differently on those systems.

release is also available for Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish).

In Percona Server for MongoDB 3.6.10-3.0, data at rest encryption becomes GA. The data at rest encryption feature now covers the temporary files used for external sorting and the rollback files. You can decrypt and examine the contents of the rollback files using the new perconadecrypt command line tool.

In this release, Percona Server for MongoDB supports the ngram full-text search engine. Thanks to Sunguck Lee (@SunguckLee) for this contribution. To enable the ngram full-text search engine, create an index passing ngram to the default_language parameter:

mongo > db.collection.createIndex({name:"text"}, {default_language: "ngram"})

New Features

  • PSMDB-276perconadecrypt tool is now available for decrypting the encrypted rollback files.
  • PSMDB-250: The Ngram full-text search engine has been added to Percona Server for MongoDB. Thanks to @SunguckLee on GitHub

Bugs Fixed

  • PSMDB-234: It was possible to use a key file for encryption the owner of which was not the owner of the mongod process.
  • PSMDB-269: In some cases, a hot backup was not using the correct path to the keydb directory designated for data encryption.
  • PSMDB-273: When using data at rest encryption, temporary files for external sorting and rollback files were not encrypted
  • PSMDB-272mongos could crash when running the createBackup command.
  • PSMDB-233: WiredTiger encryption options were silently ignored at server startup, although a storage engine different from WiredTiger was used.
  • PSMDB-257: MongoDB could not be started with a group-readable key file owned by root.
  • PSMDB-266: In some cases, it was possible to add arbitrary collections to the keydb directory which may only store encryption data.

Other bugs fixed: PSMDB-239PSMDB-243
