= 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().
13 14
   * Added a configuration file config-no-entropy.h that enables a subset of
     library features that do not require an entropy source.
15 16 17
   * Added the macro MBEDTLS_ENTROPY_MIN_HARDWARE in config.h. This allows users
     to configure the minimum number of bytes for entropy sources using the
     mbedtls_hardware_poll() function.
18 19 20 21 22 23

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.
24 25
   * Fix incorrect handling of block lengths in crypt_and_hash sample program,
     when GCM is used. #441
26 27
   * 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
28 29
   * Fix for out-of-tree builds using CMake. Found by jwurzer, and fix based on
     a contribution from Tobias Tangemann. #541
30 31
   * Fixed cert_app sample program for debug output and for use when no root
     certificates are provided.
32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40

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.
41 42
   * Added optimization for code space for X.509/OID based on configured
     features. (contributed by Aviv Palivoda)
43 44 45 46
   * 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.

Features
   * Support for platform abstraction of the standard C library time()
     function.

64 65 66
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
67
     Follath. #309
68 69
   * Fix potential build failures related to the 'apidoc' target, introduced
     in the previous patch release. Found by Robert Scheck. #390 #391
70
   * Fix issue in Makefile that prevented building using armar. #386
71 72
   * 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.
73 74 75
   * 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.
76 77
   * Fix bug in mbedtls_x509_crt_parse that caused trailing extra data in the

88 89 90 91
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.
92
   * Disabled SSLv3 in the default configuration.
93 94
   * Optimized mbedtls_mpi_zeroize() for MPI integer size. (Fix by Alexey
     Skalozub).
95 96
   * Fix non-compliance server extension handling. Extensions for SSLv3 are now
     ignored, as required by RFC6101.

100 101 102 103
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
104 105 106 107
   * 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
111 112 113
   * 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
114
   * Removed potential leak in mbedtls_rsa_rsassa_pkcs1_v15_sign(), found by
115
     JayaraghavendranK. #372
116 117 118 119 120
   * 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
125 126 127
   * 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.
128 129
   * Fix potential heap corruption on Windows when
     mbedtls_x509_crt_parse_path() is passed a path longer than 2GB. Cannot be
130
     triggered remotely. Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.
131 132 133
   * 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
134
     Vranken, Intelworks.
135 136 137 138
   * 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

139 140 141 142 143
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.)
144

145
Bugfix
146 147 148
   * 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
149 150
   * Fix build error with configurations where ECDHE-PSK is the only key
     exchange. Found and fix provided by Chris Hammond. #270
151 152
   * Fix build error with configurations where RSA, RSA-PSK, ECDH-RSA or
     ECHD-ECDSA if the only key exchange. Multiple reports. #310
153 154
   * 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
155 156 157
   * 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
158
     Matthew Page of Scannex Electronics Ltd.
159 160
   * Fix failures in MPI on Sparc(64) due to use of bad assembly code.
     Found by Kurt Danielson. #292
161
   * Fix typo in name of the extKeyUsage OID. Found by inestlerode, #314
162 163 164
   * 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.

172
Security
173
   * Added fix for CVE-2015-5291 to prevent heap corruption due to buffer
174 175
     overflow of the hostname or session ticket. Found by Guido Vranken,
     Intelworks.
176 177
   * 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.
178 179
     Found and patch provided by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced
     remotely.
180 181
   * Fix stack buffer overflow in pkcs12 decryption (used by
     mbedtls_pk_parse_key(file)() when the password is > 129 bytes.
182
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Not triggerable remotely.
183
   * Fix potential buffer overflow in mbedtls_mpi_read_string().
184 185 186 187
     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.
188
   * Fix potential random memory allocation in mbedtls_pem_read_buffer()
189 190 191 192 193 194
     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.
195
   * Fix potential double-free if mbedtls_conf_psk() is called repeatedly on
196 197
     the same mbedtls_ssl_config object and memory allocation fails. Found by
     Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced remotely.
198 199 200
   * 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.
201
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.

203 204 205
Bugfix
   * Fix compile error in net.c with musl libc. Found and patch provided by
     zhasha (#278).
206
   * Fix macroization of 'inline' keyword when building as C++. (#279)
207

208 209 210
Changes
   * Added checking of hostname length in mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname() to ensure
     domain names are compliant with RFC 1035.
211 212
   * Fixed paths for check_config.h in example config files. (Found by bachp)

216 217 218 219
Security
   * 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/
220 221
   * Fix possible client-side NULL pointer dereference (read) when the client
     tries to continue the handshake after it failed (a misuse of the API).
222 223
     (Found and patch provided by Fabian Foerg, Gotham Digital Science using
     afl-fuzz.)
224

225 226
Bugfix
   * Fix warning when using a 64bit platform. (found by embedthis) (#275)
227 228 229
   * Fix off-by-one error in parsing Supported Point Format extension that
     caused some handshakes to fail.

230 231 232
Changes
   * Made X509 profile pointer const in mbedtls_ssl_conf_cert_profile() to allow
     use of mbedtls_x509_crt_profile_next. (found by NWilson)
233 234 235 236 237 238 239
   * 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.)

294
Features
295 296 297 298 299 300
   * 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.
301 302 303 304 305 306
   * 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.
307

308
API Changes
309 310
   * The library has been split into libmbedcrypto, libmbedx509, libmbedtls.
     You now need to link to all of them if you use TLS for example.
311
   * All public identifiers moved to the mbedtls_* or MBEDTLS_* namespace.
312
     Some names have been further changed to make them more consistent.
313
     Migration helpers scripts/rename.pl and include/mbedlts/compat-1.3.h are
314
     provided. Full list of renamings in scripts/data_files/rename-1.3-2.0.txt
315
   * Renamings of fields inside structures, not covered by the previous list:
316 317 318
     mbedtls_cipher_info_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_cipher_context_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_ecp_curve_info.size -> bit_size
319
   * Headers are now found in the 'mbedtls' directory (previously 'polarssl').
320
   * The following _init() functions that could return errors have
321
     been split into an _init() that returns void and another function that
322
     should generally be the first function called on this context after init:
323
     mbedtls_ssl_init() -> mbedtls_ssl_setup()
324
     mbedtls_ccm_init() -> mbedtls_ccm_setkey()
325
     mbedtls_gcm_init() -> mbedtls_gcm_setkey()
326 327
     mbedtls_hmac_drbg_init() -> mbedtls_hmac_drbg_seed(_buf)()
     mbedtls_ctr_drbg_init()  -> mbedtls_ctr_drbg_seed()
328
     Note that for mbedtls_ssl_setup(), you need to be done setting up the
329
     ssl_config structure before calling it.
330
   * Most ssl_set_xxx() functions (all except ssl_set_bio(), ssl_set_hostname(),
331 332 333 334
     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.
335 336
   * ssl_set_bio() changed signature (contexts merged, order switched, one
     additional callback for read-with-timeout).
337 338 339 340 341
   * 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()
342
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_ca_chain() lost its last argument (peer_cn), now set
343
     using mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname().
344
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_cache() changed prototype (only one context
345
     pointer, parameters reordered).
346 347
   * On server, mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets_cb() must now be used in
     place of mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets() to enable session tickets.
348 349
   * The SSL debug callback gained two new arguments (file name, line number).
   * Debug modes were removed.
350
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_truncated_hmac() now returns void.
351
   * mbedtls_memory_buffer_alloc_init() now returns void.
352 353 354
   * X.509 verification flags are now an uint32_t. Affect the signature of:
     mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result()
     mbedtls_x509_ctr_verify_info()
355
     mbedtls_x509_crt_verify() (flags, f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
356
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_verify() (f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
357 358 359 360 361 362
   * 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()
363 364
   * In the NET module, all "int" and "int *" arguments for file descriptors
     changed type to "mbedtls_net_context *".
365
   * net_accept() gained new arguments for the size of the client_ip buffer.
366 367

373 374 375
   * 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
376
     strings; use the new *_len variables instead of strlen().
377 378 379
   * Functions mbedtls_x509_xxx_parse(), mbedtls_pk_parse_key(),
     mbedtls_pk_parse_public_key() and mbedtls_dhm_parse_dhm() now expect the

     argument (allowing memory savings if HMAC is not used)
417

418
Semi-API changes (technically public, morally private)
419 420
   * Renamed a few headers to include _internal in the name. Those headers are
     not supposed to be included by users.
421 422
   * Changed md_info_t into an opaque structure (use md_get_xxx() accessors).
   * Changed pk_info_t into an opaque structure.

428

429
Default behavior changes
430
   * The default minimum TLS version is now TLS 1.0.
431 432

     default ciphersuite list returned by ssl_list_ciphersuites()
433 434
   * Support for receiving SSLv2 ClientHello is now disabled by default at
     compile time.
435
   * The default authmode for SSL/TLS clients is now REQUIRED.
436 437 438
   * 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
439
   * Default DHM parameters server-side upgraded from 1024 to 2048 bits.
440 441
   * A minimum RSA key size of 2048 bits is now enforced during ceritificate

442
   * Negotiation of truncated HMAC is now disabled by default on server too.
443 444 445 446 447 448

     mbedtls_version_check_feature()
449

450
Requirement changes
451
   * The minimum MSVC version required is now 2010 (better C99 support).
452
   * The NET layer now unconditionnaly relies on getaddrinfo() and select().
453
   * Compiler is required to support C99 types such as long long and uint32_t.
454

455
API changes from the 1.4 preview branch
456 457
   * ssl_set_bio_timeout() was removed, split into mbedtls_ssl_set_bio() with
     new prototype, and mbedtls_ssl_set_read_timeout().
458 459 460 461
   * The following functions now return void:
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_transport()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_max_version()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_min_version()
462 463 464 465
   * 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().
466 467
   * With UDP sockets, it is no longer necessary to call net_bind() again
     after a successful net_accept().
468

469 470 471
Changes
   * mbedtls_ctr_drbg_random() and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_random() are now
     thread-safe if MBEDTLS_THREADING_C is enabled.
472 473
   * Reduced ROM fooprint of SHA-256 and added an option to reduce it even
     more (at the expense of performance) MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER.
474

Security
478
   * With authmode set to SSL_VERIFY_OPTIONAL, verification of keyUsage and
479 480
     extendedKeyUsage on the leaf certificate was lost (results not accessible
     via ssl_get_verify_results()).
481 482

   * Add an option to use macros instead of function pointers in the platform
     layer (helps get rid of unwanted references).
496 497
   * Improved Makefiles for Windows targets by fixing library targets and making
     cross-compilation easier (thanks to Alon Bar-Lev).
498 499 500 501 502 503
   * 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).
504
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_WARNING (off by default) to produce
505
     warnings on use of deprecated functions (with GCC and Clang only).
506
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_REMOVED (off by default) to produce
507

     (suggested by Thorsten Mühlfelder).
561 562 563 564

     "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.

639
     at runtime with ssl_set_truncated_hmac().

     for a client certificate) (found using Codenomicon Defensics).
   * Fix remotely-triggerable memory leak caused by crafted X.509 certificates
     (TLS server is not affected if it doesn't ask for a client certificate)
     (found using Codenomicon Defensics).
   * Fix potential stack overflow while parsing crafted X.509 certificates
     (TLS server is not affected if it doesn't ask for a client certificate)
     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).
