Fedora packaging guidelines state that packages should accept PKCS#11 URIs to specify SSL certificates. NSS doesn't seem to have a way to do this; the best advise for Fedora packages currently linked against NSS is "if you can build against OpenSSL or GnuTLS instead, do so".

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
