<p>
Changed ssh implementation to use the public_key
application for all public key handling. This is also a
first step for enabling a callback API for supplying
public keys and handling keys protected with password
phrases. </p>
<p>
Additionally the test suites where improved so that they
do not copy the users keys to test server directories as
this is a security liability. Also ipv6 and file access
issues found in the process has been fixed.</p>
<p>
This change also solves OTP-7677 and OTP-7235</p>
<p>
This changes also involves some updates to public_keys
ssh-functions.</p>

<p>
Allows the public_key module to decode and encode RSA and
DSA keys encoded using the SubjectPublicKeyInfo format.
When pem_entry_encode is called on an RSA or DSA public
key type, the key is wrapped in the SubjectPublicKeyInfo
format.</p>

<p>
Updated ssl to ignore CA certs that violate the asn1-spec
for a certificate, and updated public key asn1 spec to
handle inherited DSS-params.</p>
<p>
Own Id: OTP-7884</p>
</item>
<item>
<p>
Changed ssl implementation to retain backwards
compatibility for old option {verify, 0} that shall be
equivalent to {verify, verify_none}, also separate the
cases unknown ca and selfsigned peer cert, and restored
return value of deprecated function
public_key:pem_to_der/1.</p>
<p>
Own Id: OTP-8858</p>
</item>
<item>
<p>
Better handling of v1 and v2 certificates. V1 and v2
certificates does not have any extensions so then
validate_extensions should just accept that there are
none and not end up in missing_basic_constraints clause.</p>
<p>
Own Id: OTP-8867</p>
</item>
<item>
<p>
Changed the verify fun so that it differentiate between
the peer certificate and CA certificates by using
valid_peer or valid as the second argument to the verify
fun. It may not always be trivial or even possible to
know when the peer certificate is reached otherwise.</p>
<p>

changed ssl to use the new API.</p>
<p>
Own Id: OTP-8722</p>
</item>
<item>
<p>
Added the functionality so that the verification fun will
be called when a certificate is considered valid by the
path validation to allow access to each certificate in
the path to the user application. Also try to verify
subject-AltName, if unable to verify it let the
application verify it.</p>
