= mbed TLS 2.3.x branch released 2016-xx-xx

Features
   * Added hardware entropy selftest to verify that the hardware entropy source
     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.
10 11 12
   * 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().

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.
19 20
   * Fix incorrect handling of block lengths in crypt_and_hash sample program,
     when GCM is used. #441
21 22
   * Fix for key exchanges based on ECDH-RSA or ECDH-ECDSA which weren't
     enabled unless others were also present. Found by David Fernandez. #428
23 24
   * Fix for out-of-tree builds using CMake. Found by jwurzer, and fix based on
     a contribution from Tobias Tangemann. #541
25 26
   * Fixed cert_app sample program for debug output and for use when no root
     certificates are provided.
27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35

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.
36 37
   * Added optimization for code space for X.509/OID based on configured
     features. (contributed by Aviv Palivoda)
38 39 40 41
   * 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.

     function.

59 60 61
Bugfix
   * Fix bug in mbedtls_mpi_add_mpi() that caused wrong results when the three
     arguments where the same (in-place doubling). Found and fixed by Janos
62
     Follath. #309

   * Fix potential build failures related to the 'apidoc' target, introduced
     in the previous patch release. Found by Robert Scheck. #390 #391
65
   * Fix issue in Makefile that prevented building using armar. #386
66 67
   * Fix memory leak that occured only when ECJPAKE was enabled and ECDHE and
     ECDSA was disabled in config.h . The leak didn't occur by default.
68 69 70
   * Fix an issue that caused valid certificates to be rejected whenever an
     expired or not yet valid certificate was parsed before a valid certificate
     in the trusted certificate list.
71 72
   * Fix bug in mbedtls_x509_crt_parse that caused trailing extra data in the

83 84 85 86
Changes
   * On ARM platforms, when compiling with -O0 with GCC, Clang or armcc5,
     don't use the optimized assembly for bignum multiplication. This removes
     the need to pass -fomit-frame-pointer to avoid a build error with -O0.
87
   * Disabled SSLv3 in the default configuration.
88 89
   * Optimized mbedtls_mpi_zeroize() for MPI integer size. (Fix by Alexey
     Skalozub).
90 91
   * Fix non-compliance server extension handling. Extensions for SSLv3 are now
     ignored, as required by RFC6101.

Security
   * Fix potential double free when mbedtls_asn1_store_named_data() fails to
     allocate memory. Only used for certificate generation, not triggerable
     remotely in SSL/TLS. Found by Rafał Przywara. #367
99 100 101 102
   * Disable MD5 handshake signatures in TLS 1.2 by default to prevent the
     SLOTH attack on TLS 1.2 server authentication (other attacks from the
     SLOTH paper do not apply to any version of mbed TLS or PolarSSL).

   * Fix over-restrictive length limit in GCM. Found by Andreas-N. #362
106 107 108
   * Fix bug in certificate validation that caused valid chains to be rejected
     when the first intermediate certificate has pathLenConstraint=0. Found by
     Nicholas Wilson. Introduced in mbed TLS 2.2.0. #280
109
   * Removed potential leak in mbedtls_rsa_rsassa_pkcs1_v15_sign(), found by
110
     JayaraghavendranK. #372
111 112 113 114 115
   * Fix suboptimal handling of unexpected records that caused interop issues
     with some peers over unreliable links. Avoid dropping an entire DTLS
     datagram if a single record in a datagram is unexpected, instead only
     drop the record and look at subsequent records (if any are present) in
     the same datagram. Found by jeannotlapin. #345

Security
120 121 122
   * Fix potential double free if mbedtls_ssl_conf_psk() is called more than
     once and some allocation fails. Cannot be forced remotely. Found by Guido
     Vranken, Intelworks.
123 124
   * Fix potential heap corruption on Windows when
     mbedtls_x509_crt_parse_path() is passed a path longer than 2GB. Cannot be
125
     triggered remotely. Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.
126 127 128
   * Fix potential buffer overflow in some asn1_write_xxx() functions.
     Cannot be triggered remotely unless you create X.509 certificates based
     on untrusted input or write keys of untrusted origin. Found by Guido
129
     Vranken, Intelworks.
130 131 132 133
   * The X509 max_pathlen constraint was not enforced on intermediate
     certificates. Found by Nicholas Wilson, fix and tests provided by
     Janos Follath. #280 and #319

134 135 136 137 138
Features
   * Experimental support for EC J-PAKE as defined in Thread 1.0.0.
     Disabled by default as the specification might still change.
   * Added a key extraction callback to accees the master secret and key
     block. (Potential uses include EAP-TLS and Thread.)
139

140
Bugfix
141 142 143
   * Self-signed certificates were not excluded from pathlen counting,
     resulting in some valid X.509 being incorrectly rejected. Found and fix
     provided by Janos Follath. #319
144 145
   * Fix build error with configurations where ECDHE-PSK is the only key
     exchange. Found and fix provided by Chris Hammond. #270
146 147
   * Fix build error with configurations where RSA, RSA-PSK, ECDH-RSA or
     ECHD-ECDSA if the only key exchange. Multiple reports. #310
148 149
   * Fixed a bug causing some handshakes to fail due to some non-fatal alerts
     not being properly ignored. Found by mancha and Kasom Koht-arsa, #308
150 151 152
   * mbedtls_x509_crt_verify(_with_profile)() now also checks the key type and
     size/curve against the profile. Before that, there was no way to set a
     minimum key size for end-entity certificates with RSA keys. Found by
153
     Matthew Page of Scannex Electronics Ltd.
154 155
   * Fix failures in MPI on Sparc(64) due to use of bad assembly code.
     Found by Kurt Danielson. #292
156
   * Fix typo in name of the extKeyUsage OID. Found by inestlerode, #314
157 158 159
   * Fix bug in ASN.1 encoding of booleans that caused generated CA
     certificates to be rejected by some applications, including OS X
     Keychain. Found and fixed by Jonathan Leroy, Inikup.

167
Security
168
   * Added fix for CVE-2015-5291 to prevent heap corruption due to buffer
169 170
     overflow of the hostname or session ticket. Found by Guido Vranken,
     Intelworks.
171 172
   * Fix potential double-free if mbedtls_ssl_set_hs_psk() is called more than
     once in the same handhake and mbedtls_ssl_conf_psk() was used.
173 174
     Found and patch provided by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced
     remotely.
175 176
   * Fix stack buffer overflow in pkcs12 decryption (used by
     mbedtls_pk_parse_key(file)() when the password is > 129 bytes.
177
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Not triggerable remotely.
178
   * Fix potential buffer overflow in mbedtls_mpi_read_string().
179 180 181 182
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Not exploitable remotely in the context
     of TLS, but might be in other uses. On 32 bit machines, requires reading a
     string of close to or larger than 1GB to exploit; on 64 bit machines, would
     require reading a string of close to or larger than 2^62 bytes.
183
   * Fix potential random memory allocation in mbedtls_pem_read_buffer()
184 185 186 187 188 189
     on crafted PEM input data. Found and fix provided by Guido Vranken,
     Intelworks. Not triggerable remotely in TLS. Triggerable remotely if you
     accept PEM data from an untrusted source.
   * Fix possible heap buffer overflow in base64_encoded() when the input
     buffer is 512MB or larger on 32-bit platforms. Found by Guido Vranken,
     Intelworks. Not trigerrable remotely in TLS.
190
   * Fix potential double-free if mbedtls_conf_psk() is called repeatedly on
191 192
     the same mbedtls_ssl_config object and memory allocation fails. Found by
     Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced remotely.
193 194 195
   * Fix potential heap buffer overflow in servers that perform client
     authentication against a crafted CA cert. Cannot be triggered remotely
     unless you allow third parties to pick trust CAs for client auth.
196
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.

Bugfix
   * Fix compile error in net.c with musl libc. Found and patch provided by
     zhasha (#278).
201
   * Fix macroization of 'inline' keyword when building as C++. (#279)
202

203 204 205
Changes

   * Add countermeasure against Lenstra's RSA-CRT attack for PKCS#1 v1.5
     signatures. (Found by Florian Weimer, Red Hat.)
     https://securityblog.redhat.com/2015/09/02/factoring-rsa-keys-with-tls-perfect-forward-secrecy/
215 216
   * Fix possible client-side NULL pointer dereference (read) when the client
     tries to continue the handshake after it failed (a misuse of the API).
217 218
     (Found and patch provided by Fabian Foerg, Gotham Digital Science using
     afl-fuzz.)
219

220 221
Bugfix
   * Fix warning when using a 64bit platform. (found by embedthis) (#275)
222 223 224
   * Fix off-by-one error in parsing Supported Point Format extension that
     caused some handshakes to fail.

225 226 227
Changes
   * Made X509 profile pointer const in mbedtls_ssl_conf_cert_profile() to allow
     use of mbedtls_x509_crt_profile_next. (found by NWilson)
228 229 230 231 232 233 234
   * When a client initiates a reconnect from the same port as a live
     connection, if cookie verification is available
     (MBEDTLS_SSL_DTLS_HELLO_VERIFY defined in config.h, and usable cookie
     callbacks set with mbedtls_ssl_conf_dtls_cookies()), this will be
     detected and mbedtls_ssl_read() will return
     MBEDTLS_ERR_SSL_CLIENT_RECONNECT - it is then possible to start a new
     handshake with the same context. (See RFC 6347 section 4.2.8.)

289
Features
290 291 292 293 294 295
   * 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.
296 297 298 299 300 301
   * 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.
302

303
API Changes
304 305
   * The library has been split into libmbedcrypto, libmbedx509, libmbedtls.
     You now need to link to all of them if you use TLS for example.
306
   * All public identifiers moved to the mbedtls_* or MBEDTLS_* namespace.
307
     Some names have been further changed to make them more consistent.
308
     Migration helpers scripts/rename.pl and include/mbedlts/compat-1.3.h are
309
     provided. Full list of renamings in scripts/data_files/rename-1.3-2.0.txt
310
   * Renamings of fields inside structures, not covered by the previous list:
311 312 313
     mbedtls_cipher_info_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_cipher_context_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_ecp_curve_info.size -> bit_size
314
   * Headers are now found in the 'mbedtls' directory (previously 'polarssl').
315
   * The following _init() functions that could return errors have
316
     been split into an _init() that returns void and another function that
317
     should generally be the first function called on this context after init:
318
     mbedtls_ssl_init() -> mbedtls_ssl_setup()
319
     mbedtls_ccm_init() -> mbedtls_ccm_setkey()
320
     mbedtls_gcm_init() -> mbedtls_gcm_setkey()
321 322
     mbedtls_hmac_drbg_init() -> mbedtls_hmac_drbg_seed(_buf)()
     mbedtls_ctr_drbg_init()  -> mbedtls_ctr_drbg_seed()
323
     Note that for mbedtls_ssl_setup(), you need to be done setting up the
324
     ssl_config structure before calling it.
325
   * Most ssl_set_xxx() functions (all except ssl_set_bio(), ssl_set_hostname(),
326 327 328 329
     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.
330 331
   * ssl_set_bio() changed signature (contexts merged, order switched, one
     additional callback for read-with-timeout).
332 333 334 335 336
   * 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()
337
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_ca_chain() lost its last argument (peer_cn), now set
338
     using mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname().
339
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_cache() changed prototype (only one context
340
     pointer, parameters reordered).
341 342
   * On server, mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets_cb() must now be used in
     place of mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets() to enable session tickets.
343 344
   * The SSL debug callback gained two new arguments (file name, line number).
   * Debug modes were removed.
345
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_truncated_hmac() now returns void.
346
   * mbedtls_memory_buffer_alloc_init() now returns void.
347 348 349
   * X.509 verification flags are now an uint32_t. Affect the signature of:
     mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result()
     mbedtls_x509_ctr_verify_info()
350
     mbedtls_x509_crt_verify() (flags, f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
351
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_verify() (f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
352 353 354 355 356 357
   * 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()
358 359
   * In the NET module, all "int" and "int *" arguments for file descriptors
     changed type to "mbedtls_net_context *".
360
   * net_accept() gained new arguments for the size of the client_ip buffer.
361 362
   * In the threading layer, mbedtls_mutex_init() and mbedtls_mutex_free() now
     return void.
363 364
   * ecdsa_write_signature() gained an addtional md_alg argument and
     ecdsa_write_signature_det() was deprecated.
365
   * pk_sign() no longer accepts md_alg == POLARSSL_MD_NONE with ECDSA.
366 367
   * Last argument of x509_crt_check_key_usage() and
     mbedtls_x509write_crt_set_key_usage() changed from int to unsigned.
368 369 370
   * 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
371
     strings; use the new *_len variables instead of strlen().
372 373 374
   * 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.
375
   * Signature of mpi_mul_mpi() changed to make the last argument unsigned
376 377

378
     (Thanks to Mansour Moufid for helping with the replacement.)
379 380
   * Change SSL_DISABLE_RENEGOTIATION config.h flag to SSL_RENEGOTIATION
     (support for renegotiation now needs explicit enabling in config.h).

     in config.h
383 384

Removals
389
   * Removed mbedtls_ecp_group_read_string(). Only named groups are supported.
390 391

395
     waiting function.
396
   * Removed test DHM parameters from the test certs module.
397 398 399 400 401 402 403 404 405 406 407

   * 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).

     argument (allowing memory savings if HMAC is not used)
412

413
Semi-API changes (technically public, morally private)
414 415
   * Renamed a few headers to include _internal in the name. Those headers are
     not supposed to be included by users.
416 417
   * Changed md_info_t into an opaque structure (use md_get_xxx() accessors).
   * Changed pk_info_t into an opaque structure.
418 419

   * Removed mode from des_context and des3_context
423

424
Default behavior changes
425
   * The default minimum TLS version is now TLS 1.0.
426 427
   * RC4 is now blacklisted by default in the SSL/TLS layer, and excluded from the
     default ciphersuite list returned by ssl_list_ciphersuites()
428 429
   * Support for receiving SSLv2 ClientHello is now disabled by default at
     compile time.
430
   * The default authmode for SSL/TLS clients is now REQUIRED.
431 432 433
   * 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
434
   * Default DHM parameters server-side upgraded from 1024 to 2048 bits.
435 436
   * A minimum RSA key size of 2048 bits is now enforced during ceritificate
     chain verification.
437
   * Negotiation of truncated HMAC is now disabled by default on server too.
438 439 440 441 442 443
   * 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()
444

445
Requirement changes
446
   * The minimum MSVC version required is now 2010 (better C99 support).
447
   * The NET layer now unconditionnaly relies on getaddrinfo() and select().
448
   * Compiler is required to support C99 types such as long long and uint32_t.
449

450
API changes from the 1.4 preview branch
451 452
   * ssl_set_bio_timeout() was removed, split into mbedtls_ssl_set_bio() with
     new prototype, and mbedtls_ssl_set_read_timeout().
453 454 455 456
   * The following functions now return void:
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_transport()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_max_version()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_min_version()
457 458 459 460
   * 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().
461 462
   * With UDP sockets, it is no longer necessary to call net_bind() again
     after a successful net_accept().
463

464 465 466
Changes
   * mbedtls_ctr_drbg_random() and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_random() are now
     thread-safe if MBEDTLS_THREADING_C is enabled.
467 468
   * Reduced ROM fooprint of SHA-256 and added an option to reduce it even
     more (at the expense of performance) MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER.
469

Security
473
   * With authmode set to SSL_VERIFY_OPTIONAL, verification of keyUsage and
474 475
     extendedKeyUsage on the leaf certificate was lost (results not accessible
     via ssl_get_verify_results()).
476 477
   * Add countermeasure against "Lucky 13 strikes back" cache-based attack,
     https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2714625

   * Add an option to use macros instead of function pointers in the platform
     layer (helps get rid of unwanted references).
491 492
   * Improved Makefiles for Windows targets by fixing library targets and making
     cross-compilation easier (thanks to Alon Bar-Lev).
493 494 495 496 497 498
   * 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).
499
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_WARNING (off by default) to produce
500
     warnings on use of deprecated functions (with GCC and Clang only).
501
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_REMOVED (off by default) to produce

     (suggested by Thorsten Mühlfelder).
556 557 558 559
   * Remove some unneeded inclusions of header files from the standard library
     "minimize" others (eg use stddef.h if only size_t is needed).
   * Change #include lines in test files to use double quotes instead of angle
     brackets for uniformity with the rest of the code.

     key exchanges enabled needs certificates. This fixes a possible interop
     issue with some servers when a zero-length extension was sent. (Reported

632
     with a suitable (extended)KeyUsage or curve or no PSK set.

634
     at runtime with ssl_set_truncated_hmac().

   * oid_get_numeric_string() used to truncate the output without returning an
     error if the output buffer was just 1 byte too small.
831
   * dhm_parse_dhm() (hence dhm_parse_dhmfile()) did not set dhm->len.
832 833
   * Calling pk_debug() on an RSA-alt key would segfault.

     found using Codenomicon Defensics).
   * Fix buffer overread of size 1 when parsing crafted X.509 certificates
     (TLS server is not affected if it doesn't ask for a client certificate).

Bugfix
   * Fix potential undefined behaviour in Camellia.
   * Fix memory leaks in PKCS#5 and PKCS#12.
   * Stack buffer overflow if ctr_drbg_update() is called with too large
     add_len (found by Jean-Philippe Aumasson) (not triggerable remotely).
   * Fix bug in MPI/bignum on s390/s390x (reported by Dan Horák) (introduced
     in 1.2.12).
   * Fix unchecked return code in x509_crt_parse_path() on Windows (found by
     Peter Vaskovic).
   * Fix assembly selection for MIPS64 (thanks to James Cowgill).
   * ssl_get_verify_result() now works even if the handshake was aborted due
     to a failed verification (found by Fredrik Axelsson).
   * Skip writing and parsing signature_algorithm extension if none of the
     key exchanges enabled needs certificates. This fixes a possible interop
     issue with some servers when a zero-length extension was sent. (Reported
     by Peter Dettman.)
   * On a 0-length input, base64_encode() did not correctly set output length
     (found by Hendrik van den Boogaard).

Changes
   * Blind RSA private operations even when POLARSSL_RSA_NO_CRT is defined.
   * Forbid repeated extensions in X.509 certificates.
   * Add compile-time option POLARSSL_X509_MAX_INTERMEDIATE_CA to limit the
     length of an X.509 verification chain (default = 8).
