Revision history for Perl extension Net::SSLeay.
1.66 2014-08-21
Fixed compile problem with perl prior to 5.8.8, similar to
RT#76267. Reported by Graham Knop.
Fixed a problem with Socket::IPPROTO_TCP on early perls.
After discussions with the community and the original author Sampo
Kellomaki, the license conditions have been changed to "Perl Artisitic
License 2.0".
1.65 2014-07-14
Added note to doc to make it clear that X509_get_subjectAltNames returns a
packed binary IP address for type 7 - GEN_IPADD.
Improvements to SSL_OCSP_response_verify to compile under non c99
compilers. Requested by MERIJNB.
Port to Android, contributed by Brian Fraser. Includes Android specific
version of RSA_generate_key.
Added LibreSSL support, patch provided by Alexander Bluhm. Thanks!
Patch that fixes the support for SSL_set_info_callback and adds
SSL_CTX_set_info_callback and SSL_set_state. Support for these functions is
necessary to either detect renegotiation or to enforce
renegotiation. Contributed by Steffen Ullrich. Thanks!
Fixed a problem with SSL_set_state not available on some early OpenSSLs,
patched by Steffen Ullrich. Thanks!
Removed arbitrary size limits from calls to tcp_read_all in tcpcat() and
Removed unnecessary Debian_SPANTS.txt from MANIFEST. Again.
1.64 2014-06-11
Fixes for test ocsp.t. Test now does not fail if HTTP::Tiny is not
Fixed repository in META.yml.
Fixed a problem with SSL_get_peer_cert_chain: if the SSL handshake
results in an anonymous authentication, like ADH-DES-CBC3-SHA,
get_peer_cert_chain will not return an empty list, but instead return the
SSL object. Reported and fixed by Steffen
Ullrich. Thanks.
Fixed a problem where patch;a=commit;h=3009244da47b989c4cc59ba02cf81a4e9d8f8431
caused a failed test in t/local/33_x509_create_cert.t.
1.63 2014-05-19
Fixed error in version number in META.yml
1.62 2014-05-19
Improvements to OCSP support: It turns out that some CA (like Verisign)
sign the OCSP response with the CA we have in the trust store and don't
attach this certifcate in the response. But OpenSSL by itself only
considers the certificates included in the response and
SSL_OCSP_response_verify added the certificates in the chain too.
Now, we also add the trusted CA from the store which
signed the lowest chain certificate, at least if we could not verify the
OCSP response without doing it. Patch from Steffen
Ullrich. Thanks.
Fixed some compiler warnings.
1.61 2014-05-12
Changes calloc to Newx and free to Safefree, otherwise there might be
problems because calloc is done from a different memory pool than free (depends
on the build options for perl, but seen on Windows). Patch from Steffen
Ullrich. Thanks.
1.60 2014-05-10
Fixed a typo in an error message. Patch from gregor herrmann. Thanks.
Fixed a problem with building with openssl that does not support
OCSP. Also fixed some newly introduced warnings
if compiled with -Wall. Patch from Steffen Ullrich. Thanks.
fix build-failure on most Debian architectures:
SSLeay.xs: In function 'XS_Net__SSLeay_OCSP_response_results':
SSLeay.xs:5602:3: error: format not a string literal and no format
arguments. Patch from gregor herrmann.
1.59 2014-05-10
Fixed local/30_error.t, so that tests do not fail if diagnostics are
Fixed error messages about undefined strings used with length or
split. Reported and patched by Peter Heuchert.
Improvements to configuration of OPTIMIZE flags, to prevent overriding
of perls expected optimization flags. Caution: HPUX aCC optimize options are special.
SSL_peek() now returns openssl error code as second item when called in
array context, same as SSL_read. Patch from Andreas Mohr.
Fixed some warnings.
Added support for tlsv1.1 tlsv1.2 via $Net::SSLeay::ssl_version. Patch
from Andreas Mohr.
Improve examples in 'Using other perl modules based on
Net::SSLeay'. Patched by Andreas Mohr.
Added support for OCSP. Patched by Steffen Ullrich. Thanks!
Added missing t/external/ocsp.t
1.58 2014-01-15
Always use size_t for strlen() return value, requested by Alexander Bluhm.
t/external/20_cert_chain.t was missing from dist.
Version number in META.yml was incorrect
Improvements to test t/external/20_cert_chain.t to provoke following bug:
Fixed crash due to SSL_get_peer_cert_chain incorrectly free'ing the chain
after use.
Fixed a problem when compiling against openssl where OPENSSL_NO_EC is set.
1.57 2014-01-09
Fixed remaining problems with test suite: pod coverage and kwalitee tests
are only enabled with RELEASE_TESTING=1
1.56 2014-01-08
Fixed a typo in documentation of BEAST Attack, patched by gregor
Added LICENSE file copied form OpenSSL distribution to prevent complaints
from various versions of kwalitee.
Adjusted license: in META.yml to be 'openssl'
Adds support for the basic operations necessary to support ECDH for PFS,
e.g. EC_KEY_new_by_curve_name, EC_KEY_free and SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh.
Improvements to t/handle/external/50_external.t to handle the case when a
test connection was not possible. Patched by Alexandr Ciornii.
Added support for ALPN TLS extension. Patch from Lubomir Rintel. Tested
with openssl-1.0.2-stable-SNAP-20131205.
Fix an use-after-free error. Patch from Lubomir Rintel.
Fixed a problem with Invalid comparison on OBJ_cmp result in
t/local/36_verify.t. Contributed by paul.
Added support for get_peer_cert_chain(). Patch by Markus Benning.
Fixed a bug that could cause stack faults: mixed up PUTBACK with SPAGAIN in ssleay_RSA_generate_key_cb_invoke()
a final PUTBACK is needed here. A second issue is also fixed:
cb->data defaults to &PL_sv_undef but throught the code you do not check
against &PL_sv_undef, just NULL.
To avoid passing the 3rd optional arg at all, do not create it. This fixes all the
cb->data checks and wrong refcounts on &PL_sv_undef. Patched by Reini Urban.
Deleted support for SSL_get_tlsa_record_byname: it is not included in
OpenSSL git master.
1.55 2013-06-08
Added support for TLSV1_1 and TLSV1_2 methods with SSL_CTX_tlsv1_1_new(),
SSL_CTX_tlsv1_2_new(), TLSv1_1_method() and TLSv1_2_method(), where
available in the underlying openssl.
Added CRL support functions X509_CRL_get_ext(), X509_CRL_get_ext_by_NID(),
X509_CRL_get_ext_count(). Patch from Franck Youssef.
Fixed a problem which could cause content with a value of '0' to not be
correctly encoded by do_httpx3 and friends. Reported by Victor Efimov via
Added support for SSL_get_tlsa_record_byname() required for DANE support in
openssl-1.0.2 and later. SSL_get_tlsa_record_byname() was added to
OpenSSL with the financial assistance of .SE.
Testing with openssl-1.0.2-stable-SNAP-20130521.
Added X509_NAME_new and X509_NAME_hash, patched by Franck Youssef.
Fixed a number of typos in pod file thanks to dsteinbrunner.
1.54 2013-03-23
t/data/testcert_cdp.crt.pem_dump and t/data/testcert_cdp.crt.pem were
missing from MANIFEST.
Added MANIFEST to svn
Improvement to test 07_sslecho.t so that if set_cert_and_key fails we
can tell why.
1.53 2013-03-22
Added support for SSL_export_keying_material where present (ie in OpenSSL
1.0.1 and later).
Changed t/handle/external/50_external.t to use instead of, who no longer have an https server.
Patch to fix a crash: P_X509_get_crl_distribution_points on an
X509 certificate with values in the CDP extension which do not have an
ia5 string will cause a segmentation fault when accessed. Patch from
Robert Duncan.
Change in t/local/32_x509_get_cert_info.t to not use
Net::SSLeay::ASN1_INTEGER_get, since it works differntly on 32 and 64 bit platforms.
Updated author and distribution location details to
1.52 2013-01-09
Rebuild package with gnu format tar, to prevent problems with unpacking
on other systems such as old Solaris,
1.51 2012-12-14
Fixed a problem where SSL_set_SSL_CTX is not available with
OpenSSL < 0.9.8f. Reported by Paul.
1.50 2012-12-13
Fixed a problem where t/handle/external/50_external.t would crash if any
of the test sites were not contactable.
Now builds on VMS. Patch kindly supplied by Craig A. Berry.
Fixed a few compiler warnings in SSLeay.xs. Most of them
are just signed/unsigned pointer mismatches but there is one that actually
fixes returning what would be an arbitrary value off the stack from
get_my_thread_id if it happened to be called in a non-threaded build.
Patch kindly supplied by Craig A. Berry.
Added README.VMS, contributed by Craig A. Berry.
Added SSL_set_tlsext_host_name, SSL_get_servername,
SSL_get_servername_type, SSL_CTX_set_tlsext_servername_callback for
server side Server Name Indication (SNI) support. Patched by kmx.
Further mods for VMS building supplied by Craig A. Berry.
Fixed a problem with C++ comments preventing builds on AIX and
HPUX. Patched by Gisle Aas. not available for tests, changed to
Added SSL_FIPS_mode_set
Improvements to test suite so it succeeds with and without FIPS mode
enabled. Patch supplied by Petr Pisar.
Added documentation, warning not to pass UTF-8 data in the content
argument to post_https. Reported by Jason Terry.
1.49 2012-09-25
Fixed problem where on some platforms test t/local/07_tcpecho.t would
bail out if it could not bind port 1212. Now now tries a number of ports to bind to until
Improvements to unsigned casting contributed by Reini Urban.
Improvements to Net::SSLeay::read to make it easier to use with non-blocking IO:
contributed by James Marshall: It modifies
Net::SSLeay::read() to return the result from SSL_read() as the second
return value, if Net::SSLeay::read() is called in list context. Its
behavior should be unchanged if called in scalar or void context. This
result code seems to be required for full support of non-blocking I/O,
since users need to handle SSL_ERR_WANT_READ, SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE, etc.
Fixed a problem where t/local/kwalitee.t fails with
Module::CPANTS::Analyse 0.86. Patch from Paul.
Fixed a number of typos patched by Giles.
Fixed a compiler warning from Compiling with gcc-4.4 and -Wall, patched by Giles.
Fixed problems with get_https4: documentation was wrong, $header_ref was
not correctly set and $server_cert was not returned.
Fixed a problem that could cause a Perl exception about no blength
method on undef. Reported by "Stephen J. Smith via RT".
Added documentation about how to mitigatxe various SSL/TLS
Fixed problem reported by Mike Doherty: SSL_MODE_* are defined in ssl.h,
and should be available as constants, but I do not see them listed in constants.h
1.48 2012-04-25
Removed unneeded Debian_CPANTS.txt from MANIFEST.
Fixed incorrect documentation about the best way to call CTX_set_options.
Fixed problem that caused Undefined subroutine utf8::encode @
t/local/33_x509_create_cert.t (on perl 5.6.2). Thanks to kmx.
In examples and pod documentations, changed #!/usr/local/bin/perl to #!/usr/bin/perl.
t/local/06_tcpecho.t now tries a number of ports to bind to until
1.47 2012-04-04

Use my_snprintf from ppport.h to prevent link failures with perl 5.8 and
earlier when compiled with MSVC.
1.46 2012-04-03
Fixed a problem reported by Atoomic:
When bootstrapping Net::SSleay ( with DynaLoader ) if you override the SIG{DIE} signal, using
Net::SSLeay will result in an error.
Recreated META.yml, added META.yml to dist
Fixed typo: the word "corresponding" was mis-spelled as "coresponding"
throughout the POD. Patched by kmx.
Updated META.yml to include repository and bugtracker

- Detected errors in OpenSSL-0.9.2b/ssl/ssl.h - see patch in README
- Reordered arguments of several functions to track OpenSSL-0.9.2b
changes. This also changes the order of args in corresponding
perl functions. You have been warned!

- WARNING: Possibly fatal verify_callback parameter list issue
is still standing

- changed get_https and put_https to fake error 900 in $response
return field
- changed print_errs and some other internals to return textual
errors instead of error count
