That rpm is probably corrupt but to verify it run:

rpm -Kv nss-softokn-freebl-3.13.4-2.fc17.i686.rpm

and look at the output

This isn't a signed RPM


rpm -ivh --nosignature nss-softokn-freebl-3.13.4-2.fc17.i686.rpm

if the above doesn't work try to find more with

rpm -qp  nss-softokn-freebl-3.13.4-2.fc17.i686.rpm

rpm -qpvv nss-softokn-freebl-3.13.4-2.fc17.i686.rpm

If nothing works then the rpm is corrupt
