mbed TLS ChangeLog (Sorted per branch, date)
= mbed TLS 2.16.2 branch released 2019-06-11
Security
* Make mbedtls_ecdh_get_params return an error if the second key
belongs to a different group from the first. Before, if an application
passed keys that belonged to different group, the first key's data was
interpreted according to the second group, which could lead to either
an error or a meaningless output from mbedtls_ecdh_get_params. In the
latter case, this could expose at most 5 bits of the private key.
Bugfix
* Server's RSA certificate in certs.c was SHA-1 signed. In the default
mbedTLS configuration only SHA-2 signed certificates are accepted.
This certificate is used in the demo server programs, which lead the
client programs to fail at the peer's certificate verification
due to an unacceptable hash signature. The certificate has been
updated to one that is SHA-256 signed. Fix contributed by
Illya Gerasymchuk.
* Fix private key DER output in the key_app_writer example. File contents
were shifted by one byte, creating an invalid ASN.1 tag. Fixed by
Christian Walther in #2239.
* Fix potential memory leak in X.509 self test. Found and fixed by
Junhwan Park, #2106.
* Reduce stack usage of hkdf tests. Fixes #2195.
* Fix 1-byte buffer overflow in mbedtls_mpi_write_string() when
used with negative inputs. Found by Guido Vranken in #2404. Credit to
OSS-Fuzz.
* Fix bugs in the AEAD test suite which would be exposed by ciphers which
either used both encrypt and decrypt key schedules, or which perform padding.
GCM and CCM were not affected. Fixed by Jack Lloyd.
* Fix incorrect default port number in ssl_mail_client example's usage.
Found and fixed by irwir. #2337
* Add missing parentheses around parameters in the definition of the
public macro MBEDTLS_X509_ID_FLAG. This could lead to invalid evaluation
in case operators binding less strongly than subtraction were used
for the parameter.
* Add a check for MBEDTLS_X509_CRL_PARSE_C in ssl_server2, guarding the crl
sni entry parameter. Reported by inestlerode in #560.
* Add DER-encoded test CRTs to library/certs.c, allowing
the example programs ssl_server2 and ssl_client2 to be run
if MBEDTLS_FS_IO and MBEDTLS_PEM_PARSE_C are unset. Fixes #2254.
* Fix missing bounds checks in X.509 parsing functions that could
lead to successful parsing of ill-formed X.509 CRTs. Fixes #2437.
* Fix multiple X.509 functions previously returning ASN.1 low-level error
codes to always wrap these codes into X.509 high level error codes before
returning. Fixes #2431.
Changes
* Return from various debugging routines immediately if the
provided SSL context is unset.
* Remove dead code from bignum.c in the default configuration.
Found by Coverity, reported and fixed by Peter Kolbus (Garmin). Fixes #2309.
* Add test for minimal value of MBEDTLS_MPI_WINDOW_SIZE to all.sh.
Contributed by Peter Kolbus (Garmin).
* Change wording in the `mbedtls_ssl_conf_max_frag_len()`'s documentation to
improve clarity. Fixes #2258.
* Replace multiple uses of MD2 by SHA-256 in X.509 test suite. Fixes #821.
= mbed TLS 2.16.1 branch released 2019-03-19
Features
* Add MBEDTLS_REMOVE_3DES_CIPHERSUITES to allow removing 3DES ciphersuites
from the default list (enabled by default). See
https://sweet32.info/SWEET32_CCS16.pdf.
Bugfix
* Fix a compilation issue with mbedtls_ecp_restart_ctx not being defined
when MBEDTLS_ECP_ALT is defined. Reported by jwhui. Fixes #2242.
* Run the AD too long test only if MBEDTLS_CCM_ALT is not defined.
Raised as a comment in #1996.
* Reduce the stack consumption of mbedtls_mpi_fill_random() which could
previously lead to a stack overflow on constrained targets.
* Add `MBEDTLS_SELF_TEST` for the mbedtls_self_test functions
in the header files, which missed the precompilation check. #971
* Fix clobber list in MIPS assembly for large integer multiplication.
Previously, this could lead to functionally incorrect assembly being
produced by some optimizing compilers, showing up as failures in
e.g. RSA or ECC signature operations. Reported in #1722, fix suggested
by Aurelien Jarno and submitted by Jeffrey Martin.
* Fix signed-to-unsigned integer conversion warning
in X.509 module. Fixes #2212.
* Reduce stack usage of `mpi_write_hlp()` by eliminating recursion.
Fixes #2190.
* Remove a duplicate #include in a sample program. Fixed by Masashi Honma #2326.
* Remove the mbedtls namespacing from the header file, to fix a "file not found"
build error. Fixed by Haijun Gu #2319.
* Fix returning the value 1 when mbedtls_ecdsa_genkey failed.
* Fix false failure in all.sh when backup files exist in include/mbedtls
(e.g. config.h.bak). Fixed by Peter Kolbus (Garmin) #2407.
* Ensure that unused bits are zero when writing ASN.1 bitstrings when using
mbedtls_asn1_write_bitstring().
* Fix issue when writing the named bitstrings in KeyUsage and NsCertType
extensions in CSRs and CRTs that caused these bitstrings to not be encoded
correctly as trailing zeroes were not accounted for as unused bits in the
leading content octet. Fixes #1610.
Changes
* Include configuration file in all header files that use configuration,
instead of relying on other header files that they include.
Inserted as an enhancement for #1371
* Add support for alternative CSR headers, as used by Microsoft and defined
in RFC 7468. Found by Michael Ernst. Fixes #767.
* Fix configuration queries in ssl-opt.h. #2030
* Ensure that ssl-opt.h can be run in OS X. #2029
* Reduce the complexity of the timing tests. They were assuming more than the
underlying OS actually guarantees.
* Re-enable certain interoperability tests in ssl-opt.sh which had previously
been disabled for lack of a sufficiently recent version of GnuTLS on the CI.
* Ciphersuites based on 3DES now have the lowest priority by default when
they are enabled.
= mbed TLS 2.16.0 branch released 2018-12-21
Features
* Add a new config.h option of MBEDTLS_CHECK_PARAMS that enables validation
of parameters in the API. This allows detection of obvious misuses of the
API, such as passing NULL pointers. The API of existing functions hasn't
changed, but requirements on parameters have been made more explicit in
the documentation. See the corresponding API documentation for each
function to see for which parameter values it is defined. This feature is
disabled by default. See its API documentation in config.h for additional
steps you have to take when enabling it.
API Changes
* The following functions in the random generator modules have been
deprecated and replaced as shown below. The new functions change
the return type from void to int to allow returning error codes when
using MBEDTLS_<MODULE>_ALT for the underlying AES or message digest
primitive. Fixes #1798.
mbedtls_ctr_drbg_update() -> mbedtls_ctr_drbg_update_ret()
mbedtls_hmac_drbg_update() -> mbedtls_hmac_drbg_update_ret()
* Extend ECDH interface to enable alternative implementations.
* Deprecate error codes of the form MBEDTLS_ERR_xxx_INVALID_KEY_LENGTH for
ARIA, CAMELLIA and Blowfish. These error codes will be replaced by
the more generic per-module error codes MBEDTLS_ERR_xxx_BAD_INPUT_DATA.
* Additional parameter validation checks have been added for the following
modules - AES, ARIA, Blowfish, CAMELLIA, CCM, GCM, DHM, ECP, ECDSA, ECDH,
ECJPAKE, SHA, Chacha20 and Poly1305, cipher, pk, RSA, and MPI.
Where modules have had parameter validation added, existing parameter
checks may have changed. Some modules, such as Chacha20 had existing
parameter validation whereas other modules had little. This has now been
changed so that the same level of validation is present in all modules, and
that it is now optional with the MBEDTLS_CHECK_PARAMS flag which by default
is off. That means that checks which were previously present by default
will no longer be.
New deprecations
* Deprecate mbedtls_ctr_drbg_update and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_update
in favor of functions that can return an error code.
Bugfix
* Fix for Clang, which was reporting a warning for the bignum.c inline
assembly for AMD64 targets creating string literals greater than those
permitted by the ISO C99 standard. Found by Aaron Jones. Fixes #482.
* Fix runtime error in `mbedtls_platform_entropy_poll()` when run
through qemu user emulation. Reported and fix suggested by randombit
in #1212. Fixes #1212.
* Fix an unsafe bounds check when restoring an SSL session from a ticket.
This could lead to a buffer overflow, but only in case ticket authentication
was broken. Reported and fix suggested by Guido Vranken in #659.
* Add explicit integer to enumeration type casts to example program
programs/pkey/gen_key which previously led to compilation failure
on some toolchains. Reported by phoenixmcallister. Fixes #2170.
* Fix double initialization of ECC hardware that made some accelerators
hang.
* Clarify documentation of mbedtls_ssl_set_own_cert() regarding the absence
of check for certificate/key matching. Reported by Attila Molnar, #507.
= mbed TLS 2.14.1 branch released 2018-11-30
Security
* Fix timing variations and memory access variations in RSA PKCS#1 v1.5
decryption that could lead to a Bleichenbacher-style padding oracle
attack. In TLS, this affects servers that accept ciphersuites based on
RSA decryption (i.e. ciphersuites whose name contains RSA but not
(EC)DH(E)). Discovered by Eyal Ronen (Weizmann Institute), Robert Gillham
(University of Adelaide), Daniel Genkin (University of Michigan),
Adi Shamir (Weizmann Institute), David Wong (NCC Group), and Yuval Yarom
(University of Adelaide, Data61). The attack is described in more detail
in the paper available here: http://cat.eyalro.net/cat.pdf CVE-2018-19608
* In mbedtls_mpi_write_binary(), don't leak the exact size of the number
via branching and memory access patterns. An attacker who could submit
a plaintext for RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 decryption but only observe the timing
of the decryption and not its result could nonetheless decrypt RSA
plaintexts and forge RSA signatures. Other asymmetric algorithms may
have been similarly vulnerable. Reported by Eyal Ronen, Robert Gillham,
Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir, David Wong and Yuval Yarom.
* Wipe sensitive buffers on the stack in the CTR_DRBG and HMAC_DRBG
modules.
API Changes
* The new functions mbedtls_ctr_drbg_update_ret() and
mbedtls_hmac_drbg_update_ret() are similar to mbedtls_ctr_drbg_update()
and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_update() respectively, but the new functions
report errors whereas the old functions return void. We recommend that
applications use the new functions.
= mbed TLS 2.14.0 branch released 2018-11-19
Security
* Fix overly strict DN comparison when looking for CRLs belonging to a
particular CA. This previously led to ignoring CRLs when the CRL's issuer
name and the CA's subject name differed in their string encoding (e.g.,
one using PrintableString and the other UTF8String) or in the choice of
upper and lower case. Reported by Henrik Andersson of Bosch GmbH in issue
#1784.
* Fix a flawed bounds check in server PSK hint parsing. In case the
incoming message buffer was placed within the first 64KiB of address
space and a PSK-(EC)DHE ciphersuite was used, this allowed an attacker
to trigger a memory access up to 64KiB beyond the incoming message buffer,
potentially leading to an application crash or information disclosure.
* Fix mbedtls_mpi_is_prime() to use more rounds of probabilistic testing. The
previous settings for the number of rounds made it practical for an
adversary to construct non-primes that would be erroneously accepted as
primes with high probability. This does not have an impact on the
security of TLS, but can matter in other contexts with numbers chosen
potentially by an adversary that should be prime and can be validated.
For example, the number of rounds was enough to securely generate RSA key
pairs or Diffie-Hellman parameters, but was insufficient to validate
Diffie-Hellman parameters properly.
See "Prime and Prejudice" by by Martin R. Albrecht and Jake Massimo and
Kenneth G. Paterson and Juraj Somorovsky.
Features
* Add support for temporarily suspending expensive ECC computations after
some configurable amount of operations. This is intended to be used in
constrained, single-threaded systems where ECC is time consuming and can
block other operations until they complete. This is disabled by default,
but can be enabled by MBEDTLS_ECP_RESTARTABLE at compile time and
configured by mbedtls_ecp_set_max_ops() at runtime. It applies to the new
xxx_restartable functions in ECP, ECDSA, PK and X.509 (CRL not supported
yet), and to existing functions in ECDH and SSL (currently only
implemented client-side, for ECDHE-ECDSA ciphersuites in TLS 1.2,
including client authentication).
* Add support for Arm CPU DSP extensions to accelerate asymmetric key
operations. On CPUs where the extensions are available, they can accelerate
MPI multiplications used in ECC and RSA cryptography. Contributed by
Aurelien Jarno.
* Extend RSASSA-PSS signature to allow a smaller salt size. Previously, PSS
signature always used a salt with the same length as the hash, and returned
an error if this was not possible. Now the salt size may be up to two bytes
shorter. This allows the library to support all hash and signature sizes
that comply with FIPS 186-4, including SHA-512 with a 1024-bit key.
* Add support for 128-bit keys in CTR_DRBG. Note that using keys shorter
than 256 bits limits the security of generated material to 128 bits.
API Changes
* Add a common error code of `MBEDTLS_ERR_PLATFORM_FEATURE_UNSUPPORTED` for
a feature that is not supported by underlying alternative
implementations implementing cryptographic primitives. This is useful for
hardware accelerators that don't implement all options or features.
New deprecations
* All module specific errors following the form
MBEDTLS_ERR_XXX_FEATURE_UNAVAILABLE that indicate a feature is not
supported are deprecated and are now replaced by the new equivalent
platform error.
* All module specific generic hardware acceleration errors following the
form MBEDTLS_ERR_XXX_HW_ACCEL_FAILED that are deprecated and are replaced
by the equivalent plaform error.
* Deprecate the function mbedtls_mpi_is_prime() in favor of
mbedtls_mpi_is_prime_ext() which allows specifying the number of
Miller-Rabin rounds.
Bugfix
* Fix wrong order of freeing in programs/ssl/ssl_server2 example
application leading to a memory leak in case both
MBEDTLS_MEMORY_BUFFER_ALLOC_C and MBEDTLS_MEMORY_BACKTRACE are set.
Fixes #2069.
* Fix a bug in the update function for SSL ticket keys which previously
invalidated keys of a lifetime of less than a 1s. Fixes #1968.
* Fix failure in hmac_drbg in the benchmark sample application, when
MBEDTLS_THREADING_C is defined. Found by TrinityTonic, #1095
* Fix a bug in the record decryption routine ssl_decrypt_buf()
which lead to accepting properly authenticated but improperly
padded records in case of CBC ciphersuites using Encrypt-then-MAC.
* Fix memory leak and freeing without initialization in the example
program programs/x509/cert_write. Fixes #1422.
* Ignore IV in mbedtls_cipher_set_iv() when the cipher mode is
MBEDTLS_MODE_ECB. Found by ezdevelop. Fixes #1091.
* Zeroize memory used for buffering or reassembling handshake messages
after use.
* Use `mbedtls_platform_zeroize()` instead of `memset()` for zeroization
of sensitive data in the example programs aescrypt2 and crypt_and_hash.
* Change the default string format used for various X.509 DN attributes to
UTF8String. Previously, the use of the PrintableString format led to
wildcards and non-ASCII characters being unusable in some DN attributes.
Reported by raprepo in #1860 and by kevinpt in #468. Fix contributed by
Thomas-Dee.
* Fix compilation failure for configurations which use compile time
replacements of standard calloc/free functions through the macros
MBEDTLS_PLATFORM_CALLOC_MACRO and MBEDTLS_PLATFORM_FREE_MACRO.
Reported by ole-de and ddhome2006. Fixes #882, #1642 and #1706.
Changes
* Removed support for Yotta as a build tool.
* Add tests for session resumption in DTLS.
* Close a test gap in (D)TLS between the client side and the server side:
test the handling of large packets and small packets on the client side
in the same way as on the server side.
* Change the dtls_client and dtls_server samples to work by default over
IPv6 and optionally by a build option over IPv4.
* Change the use of Windows threading to use Microsoft Visual C++ runtime
calls, rather than Win32 API calls directly. This is necessary to avoid
conflict with C runtime usage. Found and fixed by irwir.
* Remember the string format of X.509 DN attributes when replicating
X.509 DNs. Previously, DN attributes were always written in their default
string format (mostly PrintableString), which could lead to CRTs being
created which used PrintableStrings in the issuer field even though the
signing CA used UTF8Strings in its subject field; while X.509 compliant,
such CRTs were rejected in some applications, e.g. some versions of
Firefox, curl and GnuTLS. Reported in #1033 by Moschn. Fix contributed by
Thomas-Dee.
* Improve documentation of mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result().
Fixes #517 reported by github-monoculture.
* Add MBEDTLS_MPI_GEN_PRIME_FLAG_LOW_ERR flag to mbedtls_mpi_gen_prime() and
use it to reduce error probability in RSA key generation to levels mandated
by FIPS-186-4.
= mbed TLS 2.13.1 branch released 2018-09-06
API Changes
* Extend the platform module with an abstraction mbedtls_platform_gmtime_r()
whose implementation should behave as a thread-safe version of gmtime().
This allows users to configure such an implementation at compile time when
the target system cannot be deduced automatically, by setting the option
MBEDTLS_PLATFORM_GMTIME_R_ALT. At this stage Mbed TLS is only able to
automatically select implementations for Windows and POSIX C libraries.
Bugfix
* Fix build failures on platforms where only gmtime() is available but
neither gmtime_r() nor gmtime_s() are present. Fixes #1907.
= mbed TLS 2.13.0 branch released 2018-08-31
Security
* Fix an issue in the X.509 module which could lead to a buffer overread
during certificate extensions parsing. In case of receiving malformed
input (extensions length field equal to 0), an illegal read of one byte
beyond the input buffer is made. Found and analyzed by Nathan Crandall.
Features
* Add support for fragmentation of outgoing DTLS handshake messages. This
is controlled by the maximum fragment length as set locally or negotiated
with the peer, as well as by a new per-connection MTU option, set using
mbedtls_ssl_set_mtu().
* Add support for auto-adjustment of MTU to a safe value during the
handshake when flights do not get through (RFC 6347, section 4.1.1.1,
last paragraph).
* Add support for packing multiple records within a single datagram,
enabled by default.
* Add support for buffering out-of-order handshake messages in DTLS.
The maximum amount of RAM used for this can be controlled by the
compile-time constant MBEDTLS_SSL_DTLS_MAX_BUFFERING defined
in mbedtls/config.h.
API Changes
* Add function mbedtls_ssl_set_datagram_packing() to configure
the use of datagram packing (enabled by default).
Bugfix
* Fix a potential memory leak in mbedtls_ssl_setup() function. An allocation
failure in the function could lead to other buffers being leaked.
* Fixes an issue with MBEDTLS_CHACHAPOLY_C which would not compile if
MBEDTLS_ARC4_C and MBEDTLS_CIPHER_NULL_CIPHER weren't also defined. #1890
* Fix a memory leak in ecp_mul_comb() if ecp_precompute_comb() fails.
Fix contributed by Espressif Systems.
* Add ecc extensions only if an ecc based ciphersuite is used.
This improves compliance to RFC 4492, and as a result, solves
interoperability issues with BouncyCastle. Raised by milenamil in #1157.
* Replace printf with mbedtls_printf in the ARIA module. Found by
TrinityTonic in #1908.
* Fix potential use-after-free in mbedtls_ssl_get_max_frag_len()
and mbedtls_ssl_get_record_expansion() after a session reset. Fixes #1941.
* Fix a bug that caused SSL/TLS clients to incorrectly abort the handshake
with TLS versions 1.1 and earlier when the server requested authentication
without providing a list of CAs. This was due to an overly strict bounds
check in parsing the CertificateRequest message,
introduced in Mbed TLS 2.12.0. Fixes #1954.
* Fix a miscalculation of the maximum record expansion in
mbedtls_ssl_get_record_expansion() in case of ChachaPoly ciphersuites,
or CBC ciphersuites in (D)TLS versions 1.1 or higher. Fixes #1913, #1914.
* Fix undefined shifts with negative values in certificates parsing
(found by Catena cyber using oss-fuzz)
* Fix memory leak and free without initialization in pk_encrypt
and pk_decrypt example programs. Reported by Brace Stout. Fixes #1128.
* Remove redundant else statement. Raised by irwir. Fixes #1776.
Changes
* Copy headers preserving timestamps when doing a "make install".
Contributed by xueruini.
* Allow the forward declaration of public structs. Contributed by Dawid
Drozd. Fixes #1215 raised by randombit.
* Improve compatibility with some alternative CCM implementations by using
CCM test vectors from RAM.
* Add support for buffering of out-of-order handshake messages.
* Add warnings to the documentation of the HKDF module to reduce the risk
of misusing the mbedtls_hkdf_extract() and mbedtls_hkdf_expand()
functions. Fixes #1775. Reported by Brian J. Murray.
= mbed TLS 2.12.0 branch released 2018-07-25
Security
* Fix a vulnerability in TLS ciphersuites based on CBC and using SHA-384,
in (D)TLS 1.0 to 1.2, that allowed an active network attacker to
partially recover the plaintext of messages under some conditions by
exploiting timing measurements. With DTLS, the attacker could perform
this recovery by sending many messages in the same connection. With TLS
or if mbedtls_ssl_conf_dtls_badmac_limit() was used, the attack only
worked if the same secret (for example a HTTP Cookie) has been repeatedly
sent over connections manipulated by the attacker. Connections using GCM
or CCM instead of CBC, using hash sizes other than SHA-384, or using
Encrypt-then-Mac (RFC 7366) were not affected. The vulnerability was
caused by a miscalculation (for SHA-384) in a countermeasure to the
original Lucky 13 attack. Found by Kenny Paterson, Eyal Ronen and Adi
Shamir.
* Fix a vulnerability in TLS ciphersuites based on CBC, in (D)TLS 1.0 to
1.2, that allowed a local attacker, able to execute code on the local
machine as well as manipulate network packets, to partially recover the
plaintext of messages under some conditions by using a cache attack
targetting an internal MD/SHA buffer. With TLS or if
mbedtls_ssl_conf_dtls_badmac_limit() was used, the attack only worked if
the same secret (for example a HTTP Cookie) has been repeatedly sent over
connections manipulated by the attacker. Connections using GCM or CCM
instead of CBC or using Encrypt-then-Mac (RFC 7366) were not affected.
Found by Kenny Paterson, Eyal Ronen and Adi Shamir.
* Add a counter-measure against a vulnerability in TLS ciphersuites based
on CBC, in (D)TLS 1.0 to 1.2, that allowed a local attacker, able to
execute code on the local machine as well as manipulate network packets,
to partially recover the plaintext of messages under some conditions (see
previous entry) by using a cache attack targeting the SSL input record
buffer. Connections using GCM or CCM instead of CBC or using
Encrypt-then-Mac (RFC 7366) were not affected. Found by Kenny Paterson,
Eyal Ronen and Adi Shamir.
Features
* Add new crypto primitives from RFC 7539: stream cipher Chacha20, one-time
authenticator Poly1305 and AEAD construct Chacha20-Poly1305. Contributed
by Daniel King.
* Add support for CHACHA20-POLY1305 ciphersuites from RFC 7905.
* Add platform support for the Haiku OS. (https://www.haiku-os.org).
Contributed by Augustin Cavalier.
* Make the receive and transmit buffers independent sizes, for situations
where the outgoing buffer can be fixed at a smaller size than the incoming
buffer, which can save some RAM. If buffer lengths are kept equal, there
is no functional difference. Contributed by Angus Gratton, and also
independently contributed again by Paul Sokolovsky.
* Add support for key wrapping modes based on AES as defined by
NIST SP 800-38F algorithms KW and KWP and by RFC 3394 and RFC 5649.
Bugfix
* Fix the key_app_writer example which was writing a leading zero byte which
was creating an invalid ASN.1 tag. Found by Aryeh R. Fixes #1257.
* Fix compilation error on C++, because of a variable named new.
Found and fixed by Hirotaka Niisato in #1783.
* Fix "no symbols" warning issued by ranlib when building on Mac OS X. Fix
contributed by tabascoeye.
* Clarify documentation for mbedtls_ssl_write() to include 0 as a valid
return value. Found by @davidwu2000. #839
* Fix a memory leak in mbedtls_x509_csr_parse(), found by catenacyber,
Philippe Antoine. Fixes #1623.
* Remove unused headers included in x509.c. Found by Chris Hanson and fixed
by Brendan Shanks. Part of a fix for #992.
* Fix compilation error when MBEDTLS_ARC4_C is disabled and
MBEDTLS_CIPHER_NULL_CIPHER is enabled. Found by TrinityTonic in #1719.
* Added length checks to some TLS parsing functions. Found and fixed by
Philippe Antoine from Catena cyber. #1663.
* Fix the inline assembly for the MPI multiply helper function for i386 and
i386 with SSE2. Found by László Langó. Fixes #1550
* Fix namespacing in header files. Remove the `mbedtls` namespacing in
the `#include` in the header files. Resolves #857
* Fix compiler warning of 'use before initialisation' in
mbedtls_pk_parse_key(). Found by Martin Boye Petersen and fixed by Dawid
Drozd. #1098
* Fix decryption for zero length messages (which contain all padding) when a
CBC based ciphersuite is used together with Encrypt-then-MAC. Previously,
such a message was wrongly reported as an invalid record and therefore lead
to the connection being terminated. Seen most often with OpenSSL using
TLS 1.0. Reported by @kFYatek and by Conor Murphy on the forum. Fix
contributed by Espressif Systems. Fixes #1632
* Fix ssl_client2 example to send application data with 0-length content
when the request_size argument is set to 0 as stated in the documentation.
Fixes #1833.
* Correct the documentation for `mbedtls_ssl_get_session()`. This API has
deep copy of the session, and the peer certificate is not lost. Fixes #926.
* Fix build using -std=c99. Fixed by Nick Wilson.
Changes
* Fail when receiving a TLS alert message with an invalid length, or invalid
zero-length messages when using TLS 1.2. Contributed by Espressif Systems.
* Change the default behaviour of mbedtls_hkdf_extract() to return an error
when calling with a NULL salt and non-zero salt_len. Contributed by
Brian J Murray
* Change the shebang line in Perl scripts to look up perl in the PATH.
Contributed by fbrosson.
* Allow overriding the time on Windows via the platform-time abstraction.
Fixed by Nick Wilson.
* Use gmtime_r/gmtime_s for thread-safety. Fixed by Nick Wilson.
= mbed TLS 2.11.0 branch released 2018-06-18
Features
* Add additional block mode, OFB (Output Feedback), to the AES module and
cipher abstraction module.
* Implement the HMAC-based extract-and-expand key derivation function
(HKDF) per RFC 5869. Contributed by Thomas Fossati.
* Add support for the CCM* block cipher mode as defined in IEEE Std. 802.15.4.
* Add support for the XTS block cipher mode with AES (AES-XTS).
Contributed by Aorimn in pull request #414.
* In TLS servers, support offloading private key operations to an external
cryptoprocessor. Private key operations can be asynchronous to allow
non-blocking operation of the TLS server stack.
Bugfix
* Fix the cert_write example to handle certificates signed with elliptic
curves as well as RSA. Fixes #777 found by dbedev.
* Fix for redefinition of _WIN32_WINNT to avoid overriding a definition
used by user applications. Found and fixed by Fabio Alessandrelli.
* Fix compilation warnings with IAR toolchain, on 32 bit platform.
Reported by rahmanih in #683
* Fix braces in mbedtls_memory_buffer_alloc_status(). Found by sbranden, #552.
Changes
* Changed CMake defaults for IAR to treat all compiler warnings as errors.
* Changed the Clang parameters used in the CMake build files to work for
versions later than 3.6. Versions of Clang earlier than this may no longer
work. Fixes #1072
= mbed TLS 2.10.0 branch released 2018-06-06
Features
* Add support for ARIA cipher (RFC 5794) and associated TLS ciphersuites
(RFC 6209). Disabled by default, see MBEDTLS_ARIA_C in config.h
API Changes
* Extend the platform module with a util component that contains
functionality shared by multiple Mbed TLS modules. At this stage
platform_util.h (and its associated platform_util.c) only contain
mbedtls_platform_zeroize(), which is a critical function from a security
point of view. mbedtls_platform_zeroize() needs to be regularly tested
against compilers to ensure that calls to it are not removed from the
output binary as part of redundant code elimination optimizations.
Therefore, mbedtls_platform_zeroize() is moved to the platform module to
facilitate testing and maintenance.
Bugfix
* Fix an issue with MicroBlaze support in bn_mul.h which was causing the
build to fail. Found by zv-io. Fixes #1651.
Changes
* Support TLS testing in out-of-source builds using cmake. Fixes #1193.
* Fix redundant declaration of mbedtls_ssl_list_ciphersuites. Raised by
TrinityTonic. #1359.
= mbed TLS 2.9.0 branch released 2018-04-30
Security
* Fix an issue in the X.509 module which could lead to a buffer overread
during certificate validation. Additionally, the issue could also lead to
unnecessary callback checks being made or to some validation checks to be
omitted. The overread could be triggered remotely, while the other issues
would require a non DER-compliant certificate to be correctly signed by a
trusted CA, or a trusted CA with a non DER-compliant certificate. Found by
luocm. Fixes #825.
* Fix the buffer length assertion in the ssl_parse_certificate_request()
function which led to an arbitrary overread of the message buffer. The
overreads could be caused by receiving a malformed message at the point
where an optional signature algorithms list is expected when the signature
algorithms section is too short. In builds with debug output, the overread
data is output with the debug data.
* Fix a client-side bug in the validation of the server's ciphersuite choice
which could potentially lead to the client accepting a ciphersuite it didn't
offer or a ciphersuite that cannot be used with the TLS or DTLS version
chosen by the server. This could lead to corruption of internal data
structures for some configurations.
Features
* Add an option, MBEDTLS_AES_FEWER_TABLES, to dynamically compute smaller AES
tables during runtime, thereby reducing the RAM/ROM footprint by ~6KiB.
Suggested and contributed by jkivilin in pull request #394.
* Add initial support for Curve448 (RFC 7748). Only mbedtls_ecp_mul() and
ECDH primitive functions (mbedtls_ecdh_gen_public(),
mbedtls_ecdh_compute_shared()) are supported for now. Contributed by
Nicholas Wilson in pull request #348.
API Changes
* Extend the public API with the function of mbedtls_net_poll() to allow user
applications to wait for a network context to become ready before reading
or writing.
* Add function mbedtls_ssl_check_pending() to the public API to allow
a check for whether more more data is pending to be processed in the
internal message buffers.
This function is necessary to determine when it is safe to idle on the
underlying transport in case event-driven IO is used.
Bugfix
* Fix a spurious uninitialized variable warning in cmac.c. Fix independently
contributed by Brian J Murray and David Brown.
* Add missing dependencies in test suites that led to build failures
in configurations that omit certain hashes or public-key algorithms.
Fixes #1040.
* Fix C89 incompatibility in benchmark.c. Contributed by Brendan Shanks.
#1353
* Add missing dependencies for MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME_DATE and
MBEDTLS_VERSION_FEATURES in some test suites. Contributed by
Deomid Ryabkov. Fixes #1299, #1475.
* Fix the Makefile build process for building shared libraries on Mac OS X.
Fixed by mnacamura.
* Fix parsing of PKCS#8 encoded Elliptic Curve keys. Previously Mbed TLS was
unable to parse keys which had only the optional parameters field of the
ECPrivateKey structure. Found by Jethro Beekman, fixed in #1379.
* Return the plaintext data more quickly on unpadded CBC decryption, as
stated in the mbedtls_cipher_update() documentation. Contributed by
Andy Leiserson.
* Fix overriding and ignoring return values when parsing and writing to
a file in pk_sign program. Found by kevlut in #1142.
* Restrict usage of error code MBEDTLS_ERR_SSL_WANT_READ to situations
where data needs to be fetched from the underlying transport in order
to make progress. Previously, this error code was also occasionally
returned when unexpected messages were being discarded, ignoring that
further messages could potentially already be pending to be processed
in the internal buffers; these cases led to deadlocks when event-driven
I/O was used. Found and reported by Hubert Mis in #772.
* Fix buffer length assertions in the ssl_parse_certificate_request()
function which leads to a potential one byte overread of the message
buffer.
* Fix invalid buffer sizes passed to zlib during record compression and
decompression.
* Fix the soversion of libmbedcrypto to match the soversion of the
maintained 2.7 branch. The soversion was increased in Mbed TLS
version 2.7.1 to reflect breaking changes in that release, but the
increment was missed in 2.8.0 and later releases outside of the 2.7 branch.
Changes
* Remove some redundant code in bignum.c. Contributed by Alexey Skalozub.
* Support cmake builds where Mbed TLS is a subproject. Fix contributed
independently by Matthieu Volat and Arne Schwabe.
* Improve testing in configurations that omit certain hashes or
public-key algorithms. Includes contributions by Gert van Dijk.
* Improve negative testing of X.509 parsing.
* Do not define global mutexes around readdir() and gmtime() in
configurations where the feature is disabled. Found and fixed by Gergely
Budai.
* Harden the function mbedtls_ssl_config_free() against misuse, so that it
doesn't leak memory if the user doesn't use mbedtls_ssl_conf_psk() and
instead incorrectly manipulates the configuration structure directly.
Found and fix submitted by junyeonLEE in #1220.
* Provide an empty implementation of mbedtls_pkcs5_pbes2() when
MBEDTLS_ASN1_PARSE_C is not enabled. This allows the use of PBKDF2
without PBES2. Fixed by Marcos Del Sol Vives.
* Add the order of the base point as N in the mbedtls_ecp_group structure
for Curve25519 (other curves had it already). Contributed by Nicholas
Wilson #481
* Improve the documentation of mbedtls_net_accept(). Contributed by Ivan
Krylov.
* Improve the documentation of mbedtls_ssl_write(). Suggested by
Paul Sokolovsky in #1356.
* Add an option in the Makefile to support ar utilities where the operation
letter must not be prefixed by '-', such as LLVM. Found and fixed by
Alex Hixon.
* Allow configuring the shared library extension by setting the DLEXT
environment variable when using the project makefiles.
* Optimize unnecessary zeroing in mbedtls_mpi_copy. Based on a contribution
by Alexey Skalozub in #405.
* In the SSL module, when f_send, f_recv or f_recv_timeout report
transmitting more than the required length, return an error. Raised by
Sam O'Connor in #1245.
* Improve robustness of mbedtls_ssl_derive_keys against the use of
HMAC functions with non-HMAC ciphersuites. Independently contributed
by Jiayuan Chen in #1377. Fixes #1437.
* Improve security of RSA key generation by including criteria from
FIPS 186-4. Contributed by Jethro Beekman. #1380
* Declare functions in header files even when an alternative implementation
of the corresponding module is activated by defining the corresponding
MBEDTLS_XXX_ALT macro. This means that alternative implementations do
not need to copy the declarations, and ensures that they will have the
same API.
* Add platform setup and teardown calls in test suites.
= mbed TLS 2.8.0 branch released 2018-03-16
Default behavior changes
* The truncated HMAC extension now conforms to RFC 6066. This means
that when both sides of a TLS connection negotiate the truncated
HMAC extension, Mbed TLS can now interoperate with other
compliant implementations, but this breaks interoperability with
prior versions of Mbed TLS. To restore the old behavior, enable
the (deprecated) option MBEDTLS_SSL_TRUNCATED_HMAC_COMPAT in
config.h. Found by Andreas Walz (ivESK, Offenburg University of
Applied Sciences).
Security
* Fix implementation of the truncated HMAC extension. The previous
implementation allowed an offline 2^80 brute force attack on the
HMAC key of a single, uninterrupted connection (with no
resumption of the session).
* Verify results of RSA private key operations to defend
against Bellcore glitch attack.
* Fix a buffer overread in ssl_parse_server_key_exchange() that could cause
a crash on invalid input.
* Fix a buffer overread in ssl_parse_server_psk_hint() that could cause a
crash on invalid input.
* Fix CRL parsing to reject CRLs containing unsupported critical
extensions. Found by Falko Strenzke and Evangelos Karatsiolis.
Features
* Extend PKCS#8 interface by introducing support for the entire SHA
algorithms family when encrypting private keys using PKCS#5 v2.0.
This allows reading encrypted PEM files produced by software that
uses PBKDF2-SHA2, such as OpenSSL 1.1. Submitted by Antonio Quartulli,
OpenVPN Inc. Fixes #1339
* Add support for public keys encoded in PKCS#1 format. #1122
New deprecations
* Deprecate support for record compression (configuration option
MBEDTLS_ZLIB_SUPPORT).
Bugfix
* Fix the name of a DHE parameter that was accidentally changed in 2.7.0.
Fixes #1358.
* Fix test_suite_pk to work on 64-bit ILP32 systems. #849
* Fix mbedtls_x509_crt_profile_suiteb, which used to reject all certificates
with flag MBEDTLS_X509_BADCERT_BAD_PK even when the key type was correct.
In the context of SSL, this resulted in handshake failure. Reported by
daniel in the Mbed TLS forum. #1351
* Fix Windows x64 builds with the included mbedTLS.sln file. #1347
* Fix setting version TLSv1 as minimal version, even if TLS 1
is not enabled. Set MBEDTLS_SSL_MIN_MAJOR_VERSION
and MBEDTLS_SSL_MIN_MINOR_VERSION instead of
MBEDTLS_SSL_MAJOR_VERSION_3 and MBEDTLS_SSL_MINOR_VERSION_1. #664
* Fix compilation error on Mingw32 when _TRUNCATE is defined. Use _TRUNCATE
only if __MINGW32__ not defined. Fix suggested by Thomas Glanzmann and
Nick Wilson on issue #355
* In test_suite_pk, pass valid parameters when testing for hash length
overflow. #1179
* Fix memory allocation corner cases in memory_buffer_alloc.c module. Found
by Guido Vranken. #639
* Log correct number of ciphersuites used in Client Hello message. #918
* Fix X509 CRT parsing that would potentially accept an invalid tag when
parsing the subject alternative names.
* Fix a possible arithmetic overflow in ssl_parse_server_key_exchange()
that could cause a key exchange to fail on valid data.
* Fix a possible arithmetic overflow in ssl_parse_server_psk_hint() that
could cause a key exchange to fail on valid data.
* Don't define mbedtls_aes_decrypt and mbedtls_aes_encrypt under
MBEDTLS_DEPRECATED_REMOVED. #1388
* Fix a 1-byte heap buffer overflow (read-only) during private key parsing.
Found through fuzz testing.
Changes
* Fix tag lengths and value ranges in the documentation of CCM encryption.
Contributed by Mathieu Briand.
* Fix typo in a comment ctr_drbg.c. Contributed by Paul Sokolovsky.
* Remove support for the library reference configuration for picocoin.
* MD functions deprecated in 2.7.0 are no longer inline, to provide
a migration path for those depending on the library's ABI.
* Clarify the documentation of mbedtls_ssl_setup.
* Use (void) when defining functions with no parameters. Contributed by
Joris Aerts. #678
= mbed TLS 2.7.0 branch released 2018-02-03
Security
* Fix a heap corruption issue in the implementation of the truncated HMAC
extension. When the truncated HMAC extension is enabled and CBC is used,
sending a malicious application packet could be used to selectively corrupt
6 bytes on the peer's heap, which could potentially lead to crash or remote
code execution. The issue could be triggered remotely from either side in
both TLS and DTLS. CVE-2018-0488
* Fix a buffer overflow in RSA-PSS verification when the hash was too large
for the key size, which could potentially lead to crash or remote code
execution. Found by Seth Terashima, Qualcomm Product Security Initiative,
Qualcomm Technologies Inc. CVE-2018-0487
* Fix buffer overflow in RSA-PSS verification when the unmasked data is all
zeros.
* Fix an unsafe bounds check in ssl_parse_client_psk_identity() when adding
64 KiB to the address of the SSL buffer and causing a wrap around.
* Fix a potential heap buffer overflow in mbedtls_ssl_write(). When the (by
default enabled) maximum fragment length extension is disabled in the
config and the application data buffer passed to mbedtls_ssl_write
is larger than the internal message buffer (16384 bytes by default), the
latter overflows. The exploitability of this issue depends on whether the
application layer can be forced into sending such large packets. The issue
was independently reported by Tim Nordell via e-mail and by Florin Petriuc
and sjorsdewit on GitHub. Fix proposed by Florin Petriuc in #1022.
Fixes #707.
* Add a provision to prevent compiler optimizations breaking the time
constancy of mbedtls_ssl_safer_memcmp().
* Ensure that buffers are cleared after use if they contain sensitive data.
Changes were introduced in multiple places in the library.
* Set PEM buffer to zero before freeing it, to avoid decoded private keys
being leaked to memory after release.
* Fix dhm_check_range() failing to detect trivial subgroups and potentially
leaking 1 bit of the private key. Reported by prashantkspatil.
* Make mbedtls_mpi_read_binary() constant-time with respect to the input
data. Previously, trailing zero bytes were detected and omitted for the
sake of saving memory, but potentially leading to slight timing
differences. Reported by Marco Macchetti, Kudelski Group.
* Wipe stack buffer temporarily holding EC private exponent
after keypair generation.
* Fix a potential heap buffer over-read in ALPN extension parsing
(server-side). Could result in application crash, but only if an ALPN
name larger than 16 bytes had been configured on the server.
* Change default choice of DHE parameters from untrustworthy RFC 5114
to RFC 3526 containing parameters generated in a nothing-up-my-sleeve
manner.
Features
* Allow comments in test data files.
* The selftest program can execute a subset of the tests based on command
line arguments.
* New unit tests for timing. Improve the self-test to be more robust
when run on a heavily-loaded machine.
* Add alternative implementation support for CCM and CMAC (MBEDTLS_CCM_ALT,
MBEDTLS_CMAC_ALT). Submitted by Steven Cooreman, Silicon Labs.
* Add support for alternative implementations of GCM, selected by the
configuration flag MBEDTLS_GCM_ALT.
* Add support for alternative implementations for ECDSA, controlled by new
configuration flags MBEDTLS_ECDSA_SIGN_ALT, MBEDTLS_ECDSA_VERIFY_ALT and
MBEDTLS_ECDSDA_GENKEY_AT in config.h.
The following functions from the ECDSA module can be replaced
with alternative implementation:
mbedtls_ecdsa_sign(), mbedtls_ecdsa_verify() and mbedtls_ecdsa_genkey().
* Add support for alternative implementation of ECDH, controlled by the
new configuration flags MBEDTLS_ECDH_COMPUTE_SHARED_ALT and
MBEDTLS_ECDH_GEN_PUBLIC_ALT in config.h.
The following functions from the ECDH module can be replaced
with an alternative implementation:
mbedtls_ecdh_gen_public() and mbedtls_ecdh_compute_shared().
* Add support for alternative implementation of ECJPAKE, controlled by
the new configuration flag MBEDTLS_ECJPAKE_ALT.
* Add mechanism to provide alternative implementation of the DHM module.
API Changes
* Extend RSA interface by multiple functions allowing structure-
independent setup and export of RSA contexts. Most notably,
mbedtls_rsa_import() and mbedtls_rsa_complete() are introduced for setting
up RSA contexts from partial key material and having them completed to the
needs of the implementation automatically. This allows to setup private RSA
contexts from keys consisting of N,D,E only, even if P,Q are needed for the
purpose or CRT and/or blinding.
* The configuration option MBEDTLS_RSA_ALT can be used to define alternative
implementations of the RSA interface declared in rsa.h.
* The following functions in the message digest modules (MD2, MD4, MD5,
SHA1, SHA256, SHA512) have been deprecated and replaced as shown below.
The new functions change the return type from void to int to allow
returning error codes when using MBEDTLS_<MODULE>_ALT.
mbedtls_<MODULE>_starts() -> mbedtls_<MODULE>_starts_ret()
mbedtls_<MODULE>_update() -> mbedtls_<MODULE>_update_ret()
mbedtls_<MODULE>_finish() -> mbedtls_<MODULE>_finish_ret()
mbedtls_<MODULE>_process() -> mbedtls_internal_<MODULE>_process()
New deprecations
* Deprecate usage of RSA primitives with non-matching key-type
(e.g. signing with a public key).
* Direct manipulation of structure fields of RSA contexts is deprecated.
Users are advised to use the extended RSA API instead.
* Deprecate usage of message digest functions that return void
(mbedtls_<MODULE>_starts, mbedtls_<MODULE>_update,
mbedtls_<MODULE>_finish and mbedtls_<MODULE>_process where <MODULE> is
any of MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512) in favor of functions
that can return an error code.
* Deprecate untrustworthy DHE parameters from RFC 5114. Superseded by
parameters from RFC 3526 or the newly added parameters from RFC 7919.
* Deprecate hex string DHE constants MBEDTLS_DHM_RFC3526_MODP_2048_P etc.
Supserseded by binary encoded constants MBEDTLS_DHM_RFC3526_MODP_2048_P_BIN
etc.
* Deprecate mbedtls_ssl_conf_dh_param() for setting default DHE parameters
from hex strings. Superseded by mbedtls_ssl_conf_dh_param_bin()
accepting DHM parameters in binary form, matching the new constants.
Bugfix
* Fix ssl_parse_record_header() to silently discard invalid DTLS records
as recommended in RFC 6347 Section 4.1.2.7.
* Fix memory leak in mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname() when called multiple times.
Found by projectgus and Jethro Beekman, #836.
* Fix usage help in ssl_server2 example. Found and fixed by Bei Lin.
* Parse signature algorithm extension when renegotiating. Previously,
renegotiated handshakes would only accept signatures using SHA-1
regardless of the peer's preferences, or fail if SHA-1 was disabled.
* Fix leap year calculation in x509_date_is_valid() to ensure that invalid
dates on leap years with 100 and 400 intervals are handled correctly. Found
by Nicholas Wilson. #694
* Fix some invalid RSA-PSS signatures with keys of size 8N+1 that were
accepted. Generating these signatures required the private key.
* Fix out-of-memory problem when parsing 4096-bit PKCS8-encrypted RSA keys.
Found independently by Florian in the mbed TLS forum and by Mishamax.
#878, #1019.
* Fix variable used before assignment compilation warnings with IAR
toolchain. Found by gkerrien38.
* Fix unchecked return codes from AES, DES and 3DES functions in
pem_aes_decrypt(), pem_des_decrypt() and pem_des3_decrypt() respectively.
If a call to one of the functions of the cryptographic primitive modules
failed, the error may not be noticed by the function
mbedtls_pem_read_buffer() causing it to return invalid values. Found by
Guido Vranken. #756
* Include configuration file in md.h, to fix compilation warnings.
Reported by aaronmdjones in #1001
* Correct extraction of signature-type from PK instance in X.509 CRT and CSR
writing routines that prevented these functions to work with alternative
RSA implementations. Raised by J.B. in the Mbed TLS forum. Fixes #1011.
* Don't print X.509 version tag for v1 CRT's, and omit extensions for
non-v3 CRT's.
* Fix bugs in RSA test suite under MBEDTLS_NO_PLATFORM_ENTROPY. #1023 #1024
* Fix net_would_block() to avoid modification by errno through fcntl() call.
Found by nkolban. Fixes #845.
* Fix handling of handshake messages in mbedtls_ssl_read() in case
MBEDTLS_SSL_RENEGOTIATION is disabled. Found by erja-gp.
* Add a check for invalid private parameters in mbedtls_ecdsa_sign().
Reported by Yolan Romailler.
* Fix word size check in in pk.c to not depend on MBEDTLS_HAVE_INT64.
* Fix incorrect unit in benchmark output. #850
* Add size-checks for record and handshake message content, securing
fragile yet non-exploitable code-paths.
* Fix crash when calling mbedtls_ssl_cache_free() twice. Found by
MilenkoMitrovic, #1104
* Fix mbedtls_timing_alarm(0) on Unix and MinGW.
* Fix use of uninitialized memory in mbedtls_timing_get_timer() when reset=1.
* Fix possible memory leaks in mbedtls_gcm_self_test().
* Added missing return code checks in mbedtls_aes_self_test().
* Fix issues in RSA key generation program programs/x509/rsa_genkey and the
RSA test suite where the failure of CTR DRBG initialization lead to
freeing an RSA context and several MPI's without proper initialization
beforehand.
* Fix error message in programs/pkey/gen_key.c. Found and fixed by Chris Xue.
* Fix programs/pkey/dh_server.c so that it actually works with dh_client.c.
Found and fixed by Martijn de Milliano.
* Fix an issue in the cipher decryption with the mode
MBEDTLS_PADDING_ONE_AND_ZEROS that sometimes accepted invalid padding.
Note, this padding mode is not used by the TLS protocol. Found and fixed by
Micha Kraus.
* Fix the entropy.c module to not call mbedtls_sha256_starts() or
mbedtls_sha512_starts() in the mbedtls_entropy_init() function.
* Fix the entropy.c module to ensure that mbedtls_sha256_init() or
mbedtls_sha512_init() is called before operating on the relevant context
structure. Do not assume that zeroizing a context is a correct way to
reset it. Found independently by ccli8 on Github.
* In mbedtls_entropy_free(), properly free the message digest context.
* Fix status handshake status message in programs/ssl/dtls_client.c. Found
and fixed by muddog.
Changes
* Extend cert_write example program by options to set the certificate version
and the message digest. Further, allow enabling/disabling of authority
identifier, subject identifier and basic constraints extensions.
* Only check for necessary RSA structure fields in `mbedtls_rsa_private`. In
particular, don't require P,Q if neither CRT nor blinding are
used. Reported and fix proposed independently by satur9nine and sliai
on GitHub.
* Only run AES-192 self-test if AES-192 is available. Fixes #963.
* Tighten the RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 signature verification code and remove the
undeclared dependency of the RSA module on the ASN.1 module.
* Update all internal usage of deprecated message digest functions to the
new ones with return codes. In particular, this modifies the
mbedtls_md_info_t structure. Propagate errors from these functions
everywhere except some locations in the ssl_tls.c module.
* Improve CTR_DRBG error handling by propagating underlying AES errors.
* Add MBEDTLS_ERR_XXX_HW_ACCEL_FAILED error codes for all cryptography
modules where the software implementation can be replaced by a hardware
implementation.
* Add explicit warnings for the use of MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA-1, DES and ARC4
throughout the library.
= mbed TLS 2.6.0 branch released 2017-08-10
Security
* Fix authentication bypass in SSL/TLS: when authmode is set to optional,
mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result() would incorrectly return 0 when the peer's
X.509 certificate chain had more than MBEDTLS_X509_MAX_INTERMEDIATE_CA
(default: 8) intermediates, even when it was not trusted. This could be
triggered remotely from either side. (With authmode set to 'required'
(the default), the handshake was correctly aborted).
* Reliably wipe sensitive data after use in the AES example applications
programs/aes/aescrypt2 and programs/aes/crypt_and_hash.
Found by Laurent Simon.
Features
* Add the functions mbedtls_platform_setup() and mbedtls_platform_teardown()
and the context struct mbedtls_platform_context to perform
platform-specific setup and teardown operations. The macro
MBEDTLS_PLATFORM_SETUP_TEARDOWN_ALT allows the functions to be overridden
by the user in a platform_alt.h file. These new functions are required in
some embedded environments to provide a means of initialising underlying
cryptographic acceleration hardware.
API Changes
* Reverted API/ABI breaking changes introduced in mbed TLS 2.5.1, to make the
API consistent with mbed TLS 2.5.0. Specifically removed the inline
qualifier from the functions mbedtls_aes_decrypt, mbedtls_aes_encrypt,
mbedtls_ssl_ciphersuite_uses_ec and mbedtls_ssl_ciphersuite_uses_psk. Found
by James Cowgill. #978
* Certificate verification functions now set flags to -1 in case the full
chain was not verified due to an internal error (including in the verify
callback) or chain length limitations.
* With authmode set to optional, the TLS handshake is now aborted if the
verification of the peer's certificate failed due to an overlong chain or
a fatal error in the verify callback.
Bugfix
* Add a check if iv_len is zero in GCM, and return an error if it is zero.
Reported by roberto. #716
* Replace preprocessor condition from #if defined(MBEDTLS_THREADING_PTHREAD)
to #if defined(MBEDTLS_THREADING_C) as the library cannot assume they will
always be implemented by pthread support. #696
* Fix a resource leak on Windows platforms in mbedtls_x509_crt_parse_path(),
in the case of an error. Found by redplait. #590
* Add MBEDTLS_MPI_CHK to check for error value of mbedtls_mpi_fill_random.
Reported and fix suggested by guidovranken. #740
* Fix conditional preprocessor directives in bignum.h to enable 64-bit
compilation when using ARM Compiler 6.
* Fix a potential integer overflow in the version verification for DER
encoded X.509 CRLs. The overflow could enable maliciously constructed CRLs
to bypass the version verification check. Found by Peng Li/Yueh-Hsun Lin,
KNOX Security, Samsung Research America
* Fix potential integer overflow in the version verification for DER
encoded X.509 CSRs. The overflow could enable maliciously constructed CSRs
to bypass the version verification check. Found by Peng Li/Yueh-Hsun Lin,
KNOX Security, Samsung Research America
* Fix a potential integer overflow in the version verification for DER
encoded X.509 certificates. The overflow could enable maliciously
constructed certificates to bypass the certificate verification check.
* Fix a call to the libc function time() to call the platform abstraction
function mbedtls_time() instead. Found by wairua. #666
* Avoid shadowing of time and index functions through mbed TLS function
arguments. Found by inestlerode. #557.
Changes
* Added config.h option MBEDTLS_NO_UDBL_DIVISION, to prevent the use of
64-bit division. This is useful on embedded platforms where 64-bit division
created a dependency on external libraries. #708
* Removed mutexes from ECP hardware accelerator code. Now all hardware
accelerator code in the library leaves concurrency handling to the
platform. Reported by Steven Cooreman. #863
* Define the macro MBEDTLS_AES_ROM_TABLES in the configuration file
config-no-entropy.h to reduce the RAM footprint.
* Added a test script that can be hooked into git that verifies commits
before they are pushed.
* Improve documentation of PKCS1 decryption functions.
= mbed TLS 2.5.1 released 2017-06-21
Security
* Fixed unlimited overread of heap-based buffer in mbedtls_ssl_read().
The issue could only happen client-side with renegotiation enabled.
Could result in DoS (application crash) or information leak
(if the application layer sent data read from mbedtls_ssl_read()
back to the server or to a third party). Can be triggered remotely.
* Removed SHA-1 and RIPEMD-160 from the default hash algorithms for
certificate verification. SHA-1 can be turned back on with a compile-time
option if needed.
* Fixed offset in FALLBACK_SCSV parsing that caused TLS server to fail to
detect it sometimes. Reported by Hugo Leisink. #810
* Tighten parsing of RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 signatures, to avoid a
potential Bleichenbacher/BERserk-style attack.
Bugfix
* Remove size zero arrays from ECJPAKE test suite. Size zero arrays are not
valid C and they prevented the test from compiling in Visual Studio 2015
and with GCC using the -Wpedantic compilation option.
* Fix insufficient support for signature-hash-algorithm extension,
resulting in compatibility problems with Chrome. Found by hfloyrd. #823
* Fix behaviour that hid the original cause of fatal alerts in some cases
when sending the alert failed. The fix makes sure not to hide the error
that triggered the alert.
* Fix SSLv3 renegotiation behaviour and stop processing data received from
peer after sending a fatal alert to refuse a renegotiation attempt.
Previous behaviour was to keep processing data even after the alert has
been sent.
* Accept empty trusted CA chain in authentication mode
MBEDTLS_SSL_VERIFY_OPTIONAL. Found by Jethro Beekman. #864
* Fix implementation of mbedtls_ssl_parse_certificate() to not annihilate
fatal errors in authentication mode MBEDTLS_SSL_VERIFY_OPTIONAL and to
reflect bad EC curves within verification result.
* Fix bug that caused the modular inversion function to accept the invalid
modulus 1 and therefore to hang. Found by blaufish. #641.
* Fix incorrect sign computation in modular exponentiation when the base is
a negative MPI. Previously the result was always negative. Found by Guido
Vranken.
* Fix a numerical underflow leading to stack overflow in mpi_read_file()
that was triggered uppon reading an empty line. Found by Guido Vranken.
Changes
* Send fatal alerts in more cases. The previous behaviour was to skip
sending the fatal alert and just drop the connection.
* Clarify ECDSA documentation and improve the sample code to avoid
misunderstanding and potentially dangerous use of the API. Pointed out
by Jean-Philippe Aumasson.

Security
* Wipe stack buffers in RSA private key operations
(rsa_rsaes_pkcs1_v15_decrypt(), rsa_rsaes_oaep_decrypt). Found by Laurent
Simon.
* Add exponent blinding to RSA private operations as a countermeasure
against side-channel attacks like the cache attack described in
https://arxiv.org/abs/1702.08719v2.
Found and fix proposed by Michael Schwarz, Samuel Weiser, Daniel Gruss,
Clémentine Maurice and Stefan Mangard.
Features
* Add hardware acceleration support for the Elliptic Curve Point module.
This involved exposing parts of the internal interface to enable
replacing the core functions and adding and alternative, module level
replacement support for enabling the extension of the interface.
* Add a new configuration option to 'mbedtls_ssl_config' to enable
suppressing the CA list in Certificate Request messages. The default
behaviour has not changed, namely every configured CAs name is included.
API Changes
* The following functions in the AES module have been deprecated and replaced
by the functions shown below. The new functions change the return type from
void to int to allow returning error codes when using MBEDTLS_AES_ALT,
MBEDTLS_AES_DECRYPT_ALT or MBEDTLS_AES_ENCRYPT_ALT.
mbedtls_aes_decrypt() -> mbedtls_internal_aes_decrypt()
mbedtls_aes_encrypt() -> mbedtls_internal_aes_encrypt()
Bugfix
* Remove macros from compat-1.3.h that correspond to deleted items from most
recent versions of the library. Found by Kyle Keen.
* Fixed issue in the Threading module that prevented mutexes from
initialising. Found by sznaider. #667 #843
* Add checks in the PK module for the RSA functions on 64-bit systems.
The PK and RSA modules use different types for passing hash length and
without these checks the type cast could lead to data loss. Found by Guido
Vranken.
= mbed TLS 2.4.2 branch released 2017-03-08
Security
* Add checks to prevent signature forgeries for very large messages while
using RSA through the PK module in 64-bit systems. The issue was caused by
some data loss when casting a size_t to an unsigned int value in the
functions rsa_verify_wrap(), rsa_sign_wrap(), rsa_alt_sign_wrap() and
mbedtls_pk_sign(). Found by Jean-Philippe Aumasson.
* Fixed potential livelock during the parsing of a CRL in PEM format in
mbedtls_x509_crl_parse(). A string containing a CRL followed by trailing
characters after the footer could result in the execution of an infinite
loop. The issue can be triggered remotely. Found by Greg Zaverucha,
Microsoft.
* Removed MD5 from the allowed hash algorithms for CertificateRequest and
CertificateVerify messages, to prevent SLOTH attacks against TLS 1.2.
Introduced by interoperability fix for #513.
* Fixed a bug that caused freeing a buffer that was allocated on the stack,
when verifying the validity of a key on secp224k1. This could be
triggered remotely for example with a maliciously constructed certificate
and potentially could lead to remote code execution on some platforms.
Reported independently by rongsaws and Aleksandar Nikolic, Cisco Talos
team. #569 CVE-2017-2784
Bugfix
* Fix output certificate verification flags set by x509_crt_verify_top() when
traversing a chain of trusted CA. The issue would cause both flags,
MBEDTLS_X509_BADCERT_NOT_TRUSTED and MBEDTLS_X509_BADCERT_EXPIRED, to be
set when the verification conditions are not met regardless of the cause.
Found by Harm Verhagen and inestlerode. #665 #561
* Fix the redefinition of macro ssl_set_bio to an undefined symbol
mbedtls_ssl_set_bio_timeout in compat-1.3.h, by removing it.
Found by omlib-lin. #673
* Fix unused variable/function compilation warnings in pem.c, x509_crt.c and
x509_csr.c that are reported when building mbed TLS with a config.h that
does not define MBEDTLS_PEM_PARSE_C. Found by omnium21. #562
* Fix incorrect renegotiation condition in ssl_check_ctr_renegotiate() that
would compare 64 bits of the record counter instead of 48 bits as indicated
in RFC 6347 Section 4.3.1. This could cause the execution of the
renegotiation routines at unexpected times when the protocol is DTLS. Found
by wariua. #687
* Fixed multiple buffer overreads in mbedtls_pem_read_buffer() when parsing
the input string in PEM format to extract the different components. Found
by Eyal Itkin.
* Fixed potential arithmetic overflow in mbedtls_ctr_drbg_reseed() that could
cause buffer bound checks to be bypassed. Found by Eyal Itkin.
* Fixed potential arithmetic overflows in mbedtls_cipher_update() that could
cause buffer bound checks to be bypassed. Found by Eyal Itkin.
* Fixed potential arithmetic overflow in mbedtls_md2_update() that could
cause buffer bound checks to be bypassed. Found by Eyal Itkin.
* Fixed potential arithmetic overflow in mbedtls_base64_decode() that could
cause buffer bound checks to be bypassed. Found by Eyal Itkin.
* Fixed heap overreads in mbedtls_x509_get_time(). Found by Peng
Li/Yueh-Hsun Lin, KNOX Security, Samsung Research America.
* Fix potential memory leak in mbedtls_x509_crl_parse(). The leak was caused
by missing calls to mbedtls_pem_free() in cases when a
MBEDTLS_ERR_PEM_NO_HEADER_FOOTER_PRESENT error was encountered. Found and
fix proposed by Guido Vranken. #722
* Fixed the templates used to generate project and solution files for Visual
Studio 2015 as well as the files themselves, to remove a build warning
generated in Visual Studio 2015. Reported by Steve Valliere. #742
* Fix a resource leak in ssl_cookie, when using MBEDTLS_THREADING_C.
Raised and fix suggested by Alan Gillingham in the mbed TLS forum. #771
* Fix 1 byte buffer overflow in mbedtls_mpi_write_string() when the MPI

* Fixed potential stack corruption in mbedtls_x509write_crt_der() and
mbedtls_x509write_csr_der() when the signature is copied to the buffer
without checking whether there is enough space in the destination. The
issue cannot be triggered remotely. Found by Jethro Beekman.
Features
* Added support for CMAC for AES and 3DES and AES-CMAC-PRF-128, as defined by
NIST SP 800-38B, RFC-4493 and RFC-4615.

is functioning correctly.
* Added a script to print build environment info for diagnostic use in test
scripts, which is also now called by all.sh.
* Added the macro MBEDTLS_X509_MAX_FILE_PATH_LEN that enables the user to
configure the maximum length of a file path that can be buffered when
calling mbedtls_x509_crt_parse_path().
* Added a configuration file config-no-entropy.h that configures the subset of
library features that do not require an entropy source.
* Added the macro MBEDTLS_ENTROPY_MIN_HARDWARE in config.h. This allows users
to configure the minimum number of bytes for entropy sources using the
mbedtls_hardware_poll() function.
Bugfix
* Fix for platform time abstraction to avoid dependency issues where a build
may need time but not the standard C library abstraction, and added
configuration consistency checks to check_config.h
* Fix dependency issue in Makefile to allow parallel builds.
* Fix incorrect handling of block lengths in crypt_and_hash.c sample program,

* Fix compatibility issue with Internet Explorer client authentication,
where the limited hash choices prevented the client from sending its
certificate. Found by teumas. #513
* Fix compilation without MBEDTLS_SELF_TEST enabled.
Changes
* Extended test coverage of special cases, and added new timing test suite.
* Removed self-tests from the basic-built-test.sh script, and added all
missing self-tests to the test suites, to ensure self-tests are only
executed once.
* Added support for 3 and 4 byte lengths to mbedtls_asn1_write_len().
* Added support for a Yotta specific configuration file -
through the symbol YOTTA_CFG_MBEDTLS_TARGET_CONFIG_FILE.
* Added optimization for code space for X.509/OID based on configured
features. Contributed by Aviv Palivoda.
* Renamed source file library/net.c to library/net_sockets.c to avoid
naming collision in projects which also have files with the common name
net.c. For consistency, the corresponding header file, net.h, is marked as
deprecated, and its contents moved to net_sockets.h.
* Changed the strategy for X.509 certificate parsing and validation, to no
longer disregard certificates with unrecognised fields.

Features
* Support for DTLS 1.0 and 1.2 (RFC 6347).
* Ability to override core functions from MDx, SHAx, AES and DES modules
with custom implementation (eg hardware accelerated), complementing the
ability to override the whole module.
* New server-side implementation of session tickets that rotate keys to
preserve forward secrecy, and allows sharing across multiple contexts.
* Added a concept of X.509 cerificate verification profile that controls
which algorithms and key sizes (curves for ECDSA) are acceptable.
* Expanded configurability of security parameters in the SSL module with
mbedtls_ssl_conf_dhm_min_bitlen() and mbedtls_ssl_conf_sig_hashes().
* Introduced a concept of presets for SSL security-relevant configuration
parameters.
API Changes
* The library has been split into libmbedcrypto, libmbedx509, libmbedtls.
You now need to link to all of them if you use TLS for example.
* All public identifiers moved to the mbedtls_* or MBEDTLS_* namespace.
Some names have been further changed to make them more consistent.
Migration helpers scripts/rename.pl and include/mbedlts/compat-1.3.h are
provided. Full list of renamings in scripts/data_files/rename-1.3-2.0.txt
* Renamings of fields inside structures, not covered by the previous list:
mbedtls_cipher_info_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
mbedtls_cipher_context_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
mbedtls_ecp_curve_info.size -> bit_size
* Headers are now found in the 'mbedtls' directory (previously 'polarssl').
* The following _init() functions that could return errors have
been split into an _init() that returns void and another function that
should generally be the first function called on this context after init:
mbedtls_ssl_init() -> mbedtls_ssl_setup()
mbedtls_ccm_init() -> mbedtls_ccm_setkey()
mbedtls_gcm_init() -> mbedtls_gcm_setkey()
mbedtls_hmac_drbg_init() -> mbedtls_hmac_drbg_seed(_buf)()
mbedtls_ctr_drbg_init() -> mbedtls_ctr_drbg_seed()
Note that for mbedtls_ssl_setup(), you need to be done setting up the
ssl_config structure before calling it.
* Most ssl_set_xxx() functions (all except ssl_set_bio(), ssl_set_hostname(),
ssl_set_session() and ssl_set_client_transport_id(), plus
ssl_legacy_renegotiation()) have been renamed to mbedtls_ssl_conf_xxx()
(see rename.pl and compat-1.3.h above) and their first argument's type
changed from ssl_context to ssl_config.
* ssl_set_bio() changed signature (contexts merged, order switched, one
additional callback for read-with-timeout).
* The following functions have been introduced and must be used in callback
implementations (SNI, PSK) instead of their *conf counterparts:
mbedtls_ssl_set_hs_own_cert()
mbedtls_ssl_set_hs_ca_chain()
mbedtls_ssl_set_hs_psk()
* mbedtls_ssl_conf_ca_chain() lost its last argument (peer_cn), now set
using mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname().
* mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_cache() changed prototype (only one context
pointer, parameters reordered).
* On server, mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets_cb() must now be used in
place of mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets() to enable session tickets.
* The SSL debug callback gained two new arguments (file name, line number).
* Debug modes were removed.
* mbedtls_ssl_conf_truncated_hmac() now returns void.
* mbedtls_memory_buffer_alloc_init() now returns void.
* X.509 verification flags are now an uint32_t. Affect the signature of:
mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result()
mbedtls_x509_ctr_verify_info()
mbedtls_x509_crt_verify() (flags, f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
mbedtls_ssl_conf_verify() (f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
* The following functions changed prototype to avoid an in-out length
parameter:
mbedtls_base64_encode()
mbedtls_base64_decode()
mbedtls_mpi_write_string()
mbedtls_dhm_calc_secret()
* In the NET module, all "int" and "int *" arguments for file descriptors
changed type to "mbedtls_net_context *".
* net_accept() gained new arguments for the size of the client_ip buffer.
* In the threading layer, mbedtls_mutex_init() and mbedtls_mutex_free() now
return void.
* ecdsa_write_signature() gained an addtional md_alg argument and
ecdsa_write_signature_det() was deprecated.
* pk_sign() no longer accepts md_alg == POLARSSL_MD_NONE with ECDSA.
* Last argument of x509_crt_check_key_usage() and
mbedtls_x509write_crt_set_key_usage() changed from int to unsigned.
* test_ca_list (from certs.h) is renamed to test_cas_pem and is only
available if POLARSSL_PEM_PARSE_C is defined (it never worked without).
* Test certificates in certs.c are no longer guaranteed to be nul-terminated
strings; use the new *_len variables instead of strlen().
* Functions mbedtls_x509_xxx_parse(), mbedtls_pk_parse_key(),
mbedtls_pk_parse_public_key() and mbedtls_dhm_parse_dhm() now expect the
length parameter to include the terminating null byte for PEM input.
* Signature of mpi_mul_mpi() changed to make the last argument unsigned
* calloc() is now used instead of malloc() everywhere. API of platform
layer and the memory_buffer_alloc module changed accordingly.
(Thanks to Mansour Moufid for helping with the replacement.)
* Change SSL_DISABLE_RENEGOTIATION config.h flag to SSL_RENEGOTIATION
(support for renegotiation now needs explicit enabling in config.h).
* Split MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME into MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME and MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME_DATE
in config.h
* net_connect() and net_bind() have a new 'proto' argument to choose
between TCP and UDP, using the macros NET_PROTO_TCP or NET_PROTO_UDP.
Their 'port' argument type is changed to a string.
* Some constness fixes
Removals
* Removed mbedtls_ecp_group_read_string(). Only named groups are supported.
* Removed mbedtls_ecp_sub() and mbedtls_ecp_add(), use
mbedtls_ecp_muladd().
* Removed individual mdX_hmac, shaX_hmac, mdX_file and shaX_file functions
(use generic functions from md.h)

waiting function.
* Removed test DHM parameters from the test certs module.
* Removed the PBKDF2 module (use PKCS5).
* Removed POLARSSL_ERROR_STRERROR_BC (use mbedtls_strerror()).

* Removed openssl.h (very partial OpenSSL compatibility layer).
* Configuration options POLARSSL_HAVE_LONGLONG was removed (now always on).
* Configuration options POLARSSL_HAVE_INT8 and POLARSSL_HAVE_INT16 have
been removed (compiler is required to support 32-bit operations).
* Configuration option POLARSSL_HAVE_IPV6 was removed (always enabled).
* Removed test program o_p_test, the script compat.sh does more.
* Removed test program ssl_test, superseded by ssl-opt.sh.
* Removed helper script active-config.pl
New deprecations
* md_init_ctx() is deprecated in favour of md_setup(), that adds a third
argument (allowing memory savings if HMAC is not used)
Semi-API changes (technically public, morally private)
* Renamed a few headers to include _internal in the name. Those headers are
not supposed to be included by users.
* Changed md_info_t into an opaque structure (use md_get_xxx() accessors).
* Changed pk_info_t into an opaque structure.
* Changed cipher_base_t into an opaque structure.
* Removed sig_oid2 and rename sig_oid1 to sig_oid in x509_crt and x509_crl.

* RC4 is now blacklisted by default in the SSL/TLS layer, and excluded from the
default ciphersuite list returned by ssl_list_ciphersuites()
* Support for receiving SSLv2 ClientHello is now disabled by default at
compile time.
* The default authmode for SSL/TLS clients is now REQUIRED.
* Support for RSA_ALT contexts in the PK layer is now optional. Since is is
enabled in the default configuration, this is only noticeable if using a
custom config.h
* Default DHM parameters server-side upgraded from 1024 to 2048 bits.
* A minimum RSA key size of 2048 bits is now enforced during ceritificate
chain verification.
* Negotiation of truncated HMAC is now disabled by default on server too.
* The following functions are now case-sensitive:
mbedtls_cipher_info_from_string()
mbedtls_ecp_curve_info_from_name()
mbedtls_md_info_from_string()
mbedtls_ssl_ciphersuite_from_string()
mbedtls_version_check_feature()
Requirement changes
* The minimum MSVC version required is now 2010 (better C99 support).
* The NET layer now unconditionnaly relies on getaddrinfo() and select().
* Compiler is required to support C99 types such as long long and uint32_t.
API changes from the 1.4 preview branch
* ssl_set_bio_timeout() was removed, split into mbedtls_ssl_set_bio() with
new prototype, and mbedtls_ssl_set_read_timeout().
* The following functions now return void:
mbedtls_ssl_conf_transport()
mbedtls_ssl_conf_max_version()
mbedtls_ssl_conf_min_version()
* DTLS no longer hard-depends on TIMING_C, but uses a callback interface
instead, see mbedtls_ssl_set_timer_cb(), with the Timing module providing
an example implementation, see mbedtls_timing_delay_context and
mbedtls_timing_set/get_delay().
* With UDP sockets, it is no longer necessary to call net_bind() again
after a successful net_accept().
Changes
* mbedtls_ctr_drbg_random() and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_random() are now
thread-safe if MBEDTLS_THREADING_C is enabled.
* Reduced ROM fooprint of SHA-256 and added an option to reduce it even
more (at the expense of performance) MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER.
= mbed TLS 1.3 branch
Security
* With authmode set to SSL_VERIFY_OPTIONAL, verification of keyUsage and
extendedKeyUsage on the leaf certificate was lost (results not accessible

cross-compilation easier (thanks to Alon Bar-Lev).
* The benchmark program also prints heap usage for public-key primitives
if POLARSSL_MEMORY_BUFFER_ALLOC_C and POLARSSL_MEMORY_DEBUG are defined.
* New script ecc-heap.sh helps measuring the impact of ECC parameters on
speed and RAM (heap only for now) usage.
* New script memory.sh helps measuring the ROM and RAM requirements of two
reduced configurations (PSK-CCM and NSA suite B).
* Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_WARNING (off by default) to produce
warnings on use of deprecated functions (with GCC and Clang only).
* Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_REMOVED (off by default) to produce
errors on use of deprecated functions.

brackets for uniformity with the rest of the code.
* Remove dependency on sscanf() in X.509 parsing modules.
= mbed TLS 1.3.10 released 2015-02-09
Security
* NULL pointer dereference in the buffer-based allocator when the buffer is
full and polarssl_free() is called (found by Mark Hasemeyer)
(only possible if POLARSSL_MEMORY_BUFFER_ALLOC_C is enabled, which it is

ciphersuite/certificate.
Bugfix
* Stack buffer overflow if ctr_drbg_update() is called with too large
add_len (found by Jean-Philippe Aumasson) (not triggerable remotely).
* Possible buffer overflow of length at most POLARSSL_MEMORY_ALIGN_MULTIPLE
if memory_buffer_alloc_init() was called with buf not aligned and len not

ambiguous on how to encode some packets with SSL 3.0).
* Made buffer size in pk_write_(pub)key_pem() more dynamic, eg smaller if
RSA is disabled, larger if POLARSSL_MPI_MAX_SIZE is larger.
* ssl_read() now returns POLARSSL_ERR_NET_WANT_READ rather than

* Restore ability to use a v1 cert as a CA if trusted locally. (This had
been removed in 1.3.6.)
* Restore ability to locally trust a self-signed cert that is not a proper

* Allowed X509 key usage parsing to accept 4 byte values instead of the
standard 1 byte version sometimes used by Microsoft. (Closes ticket #38)

error codes and their description.
* Added mpi_get_bit() and mpi_set_bit() individual bit setter/getter
functions.
* Added ssl_mail_client and ssl_fork_server as example programs.
Changes
* Major argument / variable rewrite. Introduced use of size_t
instead of int for buffer lengths and loop variables for
better unsigned / signed use. Renamed internal bigint types
t_int and t_dbl to t_uint and t_udbl in the process
* mpi_init() and mpi_free() now only accept a single MPI
argument and do not accept variable argument lists anymore.
* The error codes have been remapped and combining error codes
is now done with a PLUS instead of an OR as error codes
used are negative.
* Changed behaviour of net_read(), ssl_fetch_input() and ssl_recv().
net_recv() now returns 0 on EOF instead of
POLARSSL_ERR_NET_CONN_RESET. ssl_fetch_input() returns
POLARSSL_ERR_SSL_CONN_EOF on an EOF from its f_recv() function.
ssl_read() returns 0 if a POLARSSL_ERR_SSL_CONN_EOF is received
after the handshake.
* Network functions now return POLARSSL_ERR_NET_WANT_READ or
POLARSSL_ERR_NET_WANT_WRITE instead of the ambiguous
POLARSSL_ERR_NET_TRY_AGAIN

displays actual bit size of the value.
* x509parse_key() (and as a consequence x509parse_keyfile())
does not zeroize memory in advance anymore. Use rsa_init()
before parsing a key or keyfile!
Bugfix
* Debug output of MPI's now the same independent of underlying
platform (32-bit / 64-bit) (Fixes ticket #19, found by Mads
Kiilerich and Mihai Militaru)
* Fixed bug in ssl_write() when flushing old data (Fixed ticket
#18, found by Nikolay Epifanov)
