Notes - Please read

Note 1

wolfSSL as of 3.6.6 no longer enables SSLv3 by default.  wolfSSL also no
longer supports static key cipher suites with PSK, RSA, or ECDH.  This means
if you plan to use TLS cipher suites you must enable DH (DH is on  by default),
or enable ECC (ECC is on by default on 64bit systems), or you must enable static
key cipher suites with
    WOLFSSL_STATIC_DH
    WOLFSSL_STATIC_RSA
    or
    WOLFSSL_STATIC_PSK

though static key cipher suites are deprecated and will be removed from future
versions of TLS.  They also lower your security by removing PFS. Since current
NTRU suites available do not use ephemeral keys, WOLFSSL_STATIC_RSA needs to be
used in order to build with NTRU suites.


When compiling ssl.c wolfSSL will now issue a compiler error if no cipher suites
are available.  You can remove this error by defining WOLFSSL_ALLOW_NO_SUITES
in the event that you desire that, i.e., you're not using TLS cipher suites.

Note 2


wolfSSL takes a different approach to certificate verification than OpenSSL
does.  The default policy for the client is to verify the server, this means
that if you don't load CAs to verify the server you'll get a connect error,
no signer error to confirm failure (-188).  If you want to mimic OpenSSL
behavior of having SSL_connect succeed even if verifying the server fails and
reducing security you can do this by calling:

wolfSSL_CTX_set_verify(ctx, SSL_VERIFY_NONE, 0);

before calling wolfSSL_new();  Though it's not recommended.

wolfSSL (Formerly CyaSSL) Release 3.10.2 (2/10/2017)

  • SHA-384 cipher suites including ECC ones
  • HMAC now supports SHA-512
  • Track memory use for example client/server with -t option
  • Better IPv6 examples with --enable-ipv6, before if ipv6 examples/tests were turned on, localhost only was used. Now link-local (with scope ids) and ipv6 hosts can be used as well.
  • Xcode v4.6 project for iOS v6.1 update
  • settings.h is now checked in all *.c files for true one file setting detection
  • Better alignment at SSL layer for hardware crypto alignment needs
    • Note, SSL itself isn't friendly to alignment with 5 byte TLS headers and 13 bytes DTLS headers, but every effort is now made to align with the CYASSL_GENERAL_ALIGNMENT flag which sets desired alignment requirement
  • NO_64BIT flag to turn off 64bit data type accumulators in public key code
    • Note, some systems are faster with 32bit accumulators
  • --enable-stacksize for example client/server stack use
    • Note, modern desktop Operating Systems may add bytes to each stack frame
  • Updated compression/decompression with direct crypto access
  • All ./configure options are now lowercase only for consistency
  • ./configure builds default to fastmath option
    • Note, if on ia32 and building in shared mode this may produce a problem with a missing register being available because of PIC, there are at least 6 solutions to this: 1) --disable-fastmath , don't use fastmath 2) --disable-shared, don't build a shared library 3) C_EXTRA_FLAGS=-DTFM_NO_ASM , turn off assembly use 4) use clang, it just seems to work 5) play around with no PIC options to force all registers being open, e.g., --without-pic 6) if static lib is still a problem try removing fPIE
  • Many new ./configure switches for option enable/disable for example
    • rsa
    • dh
    • dsa
    • md5
    • sha
    • arc4
    • null (allow NULL ciphers)
    • oldtls (only use TLS 1.2)
    • asn (no certs or public keys allowed)
  • ./configure generates cyassl/options.h which allows a header the user can include in their app to make sure the same options are set at the app and CyaSSL level.
  • autoconf no longer needs serial-tests which lowers version requirements of automake to 1.11 and autoconf to 2.63

The CyaSSL manual is available at: http://www.yassl.com/documentation/CyaSSL-Manual.pdf. For build instructions and comments about the new features please check the manual.

CyaSSL Release 2.5.0 (02/04/2013)

Release 2.5.0 CyaSSL has bug fixes and new features including:

  • Fix for TLS CBC padding timing attack identified by Nadhem Alfardan and Kenny Paterson: http://www.isg.rhul.ac.uk/tls/
  • Microchip PIC32 (MIPS16, MIPS32) support
  • Microchip MPLAB X example projects for PIC32 Ethernet Starter Kit
  • Updated CTaoCrypt benchmark app for embedded systems
  • 1024-bit test certs/keys and cert/key buffers
  • AES-CCM-8 crypto and cipher suites
  • Camellia crypto and cipher suites
  • Bumped minimum autoconf version to 2.65, automake version to 1.12
  • Addition of OCSP callbacks
  • STM32F2 support with hardware crypto and RNG
  • Cavium NITROX support

CTaoCrypt now has support for the Microchip PIC32 and has been tested with the Microchip PIC32 Ethernet Starter Kit, the XC32 compiler and MPLAB X IDE in both MIPS16 and MIPS32 instruction set modes. See the README located under the /mplabx directory for more details.

To add Cavium NITROX support do:

./configure --with-cavium=/home/user/cavium/software

pointing to your licensed cavium/software directory. Since Cavium doesn't build a library we pull in the cavium_common.o file which gives a libtool warning about the portability of this. Also, if you're using the github source tree you'll need to remove the -Wredundant-decls warning from the generated Makefile because the cavium headers don't conform to this warning. Currently CyaSSL supports Cavium RNG, AES, 3DES, RC4, HMAC, and RSA directly at the crypto layer. Support at the SSL level is partial and currently just does AES, 3DES, and RC4. RSA and HMAC are slower until the Cavium calls can be utilized in non blocking mode. The example client turns on cavium support as does the crypto test and benchmark. Please see the HAVE_CAVIUM define.

CyaSSL is able to use the STM32F2 hardware-based cryptography and random number generator through the STM32F2 Standard Peripheral Library. For necessary defines, see the CYASSL_STM32F2 define in settings.h. Documentation for the STM32F2 Standard Peripheral Library can be found in the following document: http://www.st.com/internet/com/TECHNICAL_RESOURCES/TECHNICAL_LITERATURE/USER_MANUAL/DM00023896.pdf

CyaSSL Release 1.5.6 (7/28/2010)

Release 1.5.6 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, compatibility for our JSSE provider, and a fix for GCC builds on some systems.

For general build instructions see doc/Building_CyaSSL.pdf.

To add AES-NI support add this option to ./configure ./configure --enable-aesni

You'll need GCC 4.4.3 or later to make use of the assembly.

Release 1.5.4 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, support for AES-NI, SHA1 speed improvements from loop unrolling, and support for the Mongoose Web Server.

For general build instructions see doc/Building_CyaSSL.pdf.

To add AES-NI support add this option to ./configure ./configure --enable-aesni

You'll need GCC 4.4.3 or later to make use of the assembly.

CyaSSL Release 1.5.0 (5/11/2010)

Release 1.5.0 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, GoAhead WebServer support, sniffer support, and initial swig interface support.

For general build instructions see doc/Building_CyaSSL.pdf.

To add support for GoAhead WebServer either --enable-opensslExtra or if you don't want all the features of opensslExtra you can just define GOAHEAD_WS instead. GOAHEAD_WS can be added to ./configure with CFLAGS=-DGOAHEAD_WS or you can define it yourself.

To look at the sniffer support please see the sniffertest app in sslSniffer/sslSnifferTest. Build with --enable-sniffer on *nix or use the vcproj files on windows. You'll need to have pcap installed on *nix and WinPcap on windows.

A swig interface file is now located in the swig directory for using Python, Java, Perl, and others with CyaSSL. This is initial support and experimental, please send questions or comments to support@yassl.com.

When doing load testing with CyaSSL, on the echoserver example say, the client machine may run out of tcp ephemeral ports, they will end up in the TIME_WAIT queue, and can't be reused by default. There are generally two ways to fix this.

  1. Reduce the length sockets remain on the TIME_WAIT queue OR
  2. Allow items on the TIME_WAIT queue to be reused.

To reduce the TIME_WAIT length in OS X to 3 seconds (3000 milliseconds)

sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.msl=3000

In Linux

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_tw_reuse=1

allows reuse of sockets in TIME_WAIT

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_tw_recycle=1

works but seems to remove sockets from TIME_WAIT entirely?

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_fin_timeout=1

doen't control TIME_WAIT, it controls FIN_WAIT(2) contrary to some posts

CyaSSL Release 1.4.0 (2/18/2010)

Release 1.3.0 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, better multi TLS/SSL version support through SSLv23_server_method(), and improved documentation in the doc/ folder.

For general build instructions doc/Building_CyaSSL.pdf.

CyaSSL Release 1.3.0 (1/21/2010)

Release 1.3.0 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, a potential security problem fix, better porting support, removal of assert()s, and a complete THREADX port.

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release 1.2.0 (11/2/2009)

Release 1.2.0 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes and session negotiation if first use is read or write.

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release 1.1.0 (9/2/2009)

Release 1.1.0 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, a check against malicious session cache use, support for lighttpd, and TLS 1.2.

To get TLS 1.2 support please use the client and server functions:

SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_2_server_method(void);
SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_2_client_method(void);

CyaSSL was tested against lighttpd 1.4.23. To build CyaSSL for use with lighttpd use the following commands from the CyaSSL install dir :

./configure --disable-shared --enable-opensslExtra --enable-fastmath --without-zlib

make
make openssl-links

Then to build lighttpd with CyaSSL use the following commands from the lighttpd install dir:

./configure --with-openssl --with-openssl-includes=<CyaSSLDir>/include --with-openssl-libs=<CyaSSLDir>/lib LDFLAGS=-lm

make

On some systems you may get a linker error about a duplicate symbol for MD5_Init or other MD5 calls. This seems to be caused by the lighttpd src file md5.c, which defines MD5_Init(), and is included in liblightcomp_la-md5.o. When liblightcomp is linked with the SSL_LIBs the linker may complain about the duplicate symbol. This can be fixed by editing the lighttpd src file md5.c and adding this line to the beginning of the file:

#if 0

and this line to the end of the file

#endif

Then from the lighttpd src dir do a:

make clean
make

If you get link errors about undefined symbols more than likely the actual OpenSSL libraries are found by the linker before the CyaSSL openssl-links that point to the CyaSSL library, causing the linker confusion. This can be fixed by editing the Makefile in the lighttpd src directory and changing the line:

SSL_LIB = -lssl -lcrypto

to

SSL_LIB = -lcyassl

Then from the lighttpd src dir do a:

make clean
make

This should remove any confusion the linker may be having with missing symbols.

CyaSSL Release 1.0.6 (8/03/2009)

Release 1.0.6 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes, an improved session cache, and faster math with a huge code option.

The session cache now defaults to a client mode, also good for embedded servers. For servers not under heavy load (less than 200 new sessions per minute), define BIG_SESSION_CACHE. If the server will be under heavy load, define HUGE_SESSION_CACHE.

There is now a fasthugemath option for configure. This enables fastmath plus even faster math by greatly increasing the code size of the math library. Use the benchmark utility to compare public key operations.

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release 1.0.3 (5/10/2009)

Release 1.0.3 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes and add increased support for OpenSSL compatibility when building other applications.

Release 1.0.3 includes an alpha release of DTLS for both client and servers. This is only for testing purposes at this time. Rebroadcast and reordering aren't fully implemented at this time but will be for the next release.

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release 1.0.2 (4/3/2009)

Release 1.0.2 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes for a couple I/O issues. Some systems will send a SIGPIPE on socket recv() at any time and this should be handled by the application by turning off SIGPIPE through setsockopt() or returning from the handler.

Release 1.0.2 includes an alpha release of DTLS for both client and servers. This is only for testing purposes at this time. Rebroadcast and reordering aren't fully implemented at this time but will be for the next release.

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release Candidate 3 rc3-1.0.0 (2/25/2009)

Release Candidate 3 for CyaSSL 1.0.0 adds bug fixes and adds a project file for iPhone development with Xcode. cyassl-iphone.xcodeproj is located in the root directory. This release also includes a fix for supporting other implementations that bundle multiple messages at the record layer, this was lost when cyassl i/o was re-implemented but is now fixed.

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release Candidate 2 rc2-1.0.0 (1/21/2009)

Release Candidate 2 for CyaSSL 1.0.0 adds bug fixes and adds two new stream ciphers along with their respective cipher suites. CyaSSL adds support for HC-128 and RABBIT stream ciphers. The new suites are:

TLS_RSA_WITH_HC_128_SHA
TLS_RSA_WITH_RABBIT_SHA

And the corresponding cipher names are

HC128-SHA
RABBIT-SHA

CyaSSL also adds support for building with devkitPro for PPC by changing the library proper to use libogc. The examples haven't been changed yet but if there's interest they can be. Here's an example ./configure to build CyaSSL for devkitPro:

./configure --disable-shared CC=/pathTo/devkitpro/devkitPPC/bin/powerpc-gekko-gcc --host=ppc --without-zlib --enable-singleThreaded RANLIB=/pathTo/devkitpro/devkitPPC/bin/powerpc-gekko-ranlib CFLAGS="-DDEVKITPRO -DGEKKO"

For linking purposes you'll need

LDFLAGS="-g -mrvl -mcpu=750 -meabi -mhard-float -Wl,-Map,$(notdir $@).map"

For general build instructions see rc1 below.

CyaSSL Release Candidate 1 rc1-1.0.0 (12/17/2008)

Release Candidate 1 for CyaSSL 1.0.0 contains major internal changes. Several areas have optimization improvements, less dynamic memory use, and the I/O strategy has been refactored to allow alternate I/O handling or Library use. Many thanks to Thierry Fournier for providing these ideas and most of the work.

Because of these changes, this release is only a candidate since some problems are probably inevitable on some platform with some I/O use. Please report any problems and we'll try to resolve them as soon as possible. You can contact us at support@yassl.com or todd@yassl.com.

Using TomsFastMath by passing --enable-fastmath to ./configure now uses assembly on some platforms. This is new so please report any problems as every compiler, mode, OS combination hasn't been tested. On ia32 all of the registers need to be available so be sure to pass these options to CFLAGS:

CFLAGS="-O3 -fomit-frame-pointer"

OS X will also need -mdynamic-no-pic added to CFLAGS

Also if you're building in shared mode for ia32 you'll need to pass options to LDFLAGS as well on OS X:

LDFLAGS=-Wl,-read_only_relocs,warning

This gives warnings for some symbols but seems to work.

To build on Linux, Solaris, *BSD, Mac OS X, or Cygwin:

./configure
make

from the ./testsuite/ directory run ./testsuite 

To make a debug build:

./configure --enable-debug --disable-shared
make

To build on Win32

CyaSSL version 0.9.9 (7/25/2008)

This release of CyaSSL adds bug fixes, Pre-Shared Keys, over-rideable memory handling, and optionally TomsFastMath. Thanks to Moisés Guimarães for the work on TomsFastMath.

To optionally use TomsFastMath pass --enable-fastmath to ./configure Or define USE_FAST_MATH in each project from CyaSSL for MSVC.

Please use the benchmark routine before and after to see the performance difference, on some platforms the gains will be little but RSA encryption always seems to be faster. On x86-64 machines with GCC the normal math library may outperform the fast one when using CFLAGS=-m64 because TomsFastMath can't yet use -m64 because of GCCs inability to do 128bit division.

 *** UPDATE GCC 4.2.1 can now do 128bit division ***

See notes below (0.2.0) for complete build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.9.8 (5/7/2008)

This release of CyaSSL adds bug fixes, client side Diffie-Hellman, and better socket handling.

See notes below (0.2.0) for complete build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.9.6 (1/31/2008)

This release of CyaSSL adds bug fixes, increased session management, and a fix for gnutls.

See notes below (0.2.0) for complete build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.9.0 (10/15/2007)

This release of CyaSSL adds bug fixes, MSVC 2005 support, GCC 4.2 support, IPV6 support and test, and new test certificates.

See notes below (0.2.0) for complete build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.8.0 (1/10/2007)

This release of CyaSSL adds increased socket support, for non-blocking writes, connects, and interrupted system calls.

See notes below (0.2.0) for complete build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.6.3 (10/30/2006)

This release of CyaSSL adds debug logging to stderr to aid in the debugging of CyaSSL on systems that may not provide the best support.

If CyaSSL is built with debugging support then you need to call CyaSSL_Debugging_ON() to turn logging on.

On Unix use ./configure --enable-debug

On Windows define DEBUG_CYASSL when building CyaSSL

To turn logging back off call CyaSSL_Debugging_OFF()

See notes below (0.2.0) for complete build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.6.2 (10/29/2006)

This release of CyaSSL adds TLS 1.1.

Note that CyaSSL has certificate verification on by default, unlike OpenSSL. To emulate OpenSSL behavior, you must call SSL_CTX_set_verify() with SSL_VERIFY_NONE. In order to have full security you should never do this, provide CyaSSL with the proper certificates to eliminate impostors and call CyaSSL_check_domain_name() to prevent man in the middle attacks.

See notes below (0.2.0) for build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.6.0 (10/25/2006)

This release of CyaSSL adds more SSL functions, better autoconf, nonblocking I/O for accept, connect, and read. There is now an --enable-small configure option that turns off TLS, AES, DES3, HMAC, and ERROR_STRINGS, see configure.in for the defines. Note that TLS requires HMAC and AES requires TLS.

See notes below (0.2.0) for build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.5.5 (09/27/2006)

This mini release of CyaSSL adds better input processing through buffered input and big message support. Added SSL_pending() and some sanity checks on user settings.

See notes below (0.2.0) for build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.5.0 (03/27/2006)

This release of CyaSSL adds SSLv3 server support and session resumption.

See notes below for build instructions.

CyaSSL version 0.2.0 (02/19/2006)

This is the first release of CyaSSL and its crypt brother, CTaoCrypt. CyaSSL is written in ANSI C with the idea of a small code size, footprint, and memory usage in mind. CTaoCrypt can be as small as 32K, and the current client version of CyaSSL can be as small as 12K.

The first release of CTaoCrypt supports MD5, SHA-1, 3DES, ARC4, Big Integer Support, RSA, ASN parsing, and basic x509 (en/de)coding.

The first release of CyaSSL supports normal client RSA mode SSLv3 connections with support for SHA-1 and MD5 digests. Ciphers include 3DES and RC4.
