On the same configuration, same system, same certificates, openvpn-mbedtls can not verify the certificate, but openvpn-openssl is working ok.

Notice the "??=vma", how openvpn-mbedtls doesn't recognize the "name" field in the certificate. Maybe that is the problem.

I have the same suboptions enabled in "make menuconfig" in both cases.

It looks like the problem is this:
"The certificate is signed with an unacceptable key (eg bad curve, RSA too short)."

Are you still using an RSA-1024 certificate? mbedtls refuses those for security reasons

duvi:

Thanks for the tip, I regeneretad the certificates with RSA 2048, and it's working ok now.
I just wonder, why openssl still accepts it.
Anyway, we can close this.

Hi, I'm having the same issue after switching from openssl to mbedtls.
I regenerated certificates with 2048length, and now the CA cert is ok, but now I get get a validation error on the client cert:
"The certificate is signed with an unacceptable hash."

On the client side (running an openssl version) the server certificate is successfully validated

Any ideas on what can be happening?

ianchi:

Just to share the solution that worked for me to switch to mbedtls:

  • change to RSA 2048
  • change certificate digest from MD5 to SHA256 (use option "default_md = sha256").

The default digest used by easy-rsa key generation scripts was "md5", and it was rejected by mbedtls.
