Security
   * Fix potential integer overflow to buffer overflow in
     mbedtls_rsa_rsaes_pkcs1_v15_encrypt and mbedtls_rsa_rsaes_oaep_encrypt
8
     (not triggerable remotely in (D)TLS).
9
   * Fix missing padding length check in mbedtls_rsa_rsaes_pkcs1_v15_decrypt
10
     required by PKCS1 v2.2
11 12
   * Fix potential integer overflow to buffer overflow in
     mbedtls_rsa_rsaes_pkcs1_v15_encrypt and mbedtls_rsa_rsaes_oaep_encrypt
13
     (not triggerable remotely in (D)TLS).

15 16 17
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
18
     Follath. #309
19 20
   * Fix potential build failures related to the 'apidoc' target, introduced
     in the previous patch release. Found by Robert Scheck. #390 #391
21
   * Fix issue in Makefile that prevented building using armar. #386
22 23
   * 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.
24 25 26
   * 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.
27

28 29 30 31
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.

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
40 41 42 43
   * 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
47 48 49
   * 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
50
   * Removed potential leak in mbedtls_rsa_rsassa_pkcs1_v15_sign(), found by
51
     JayaraghavendranK. #372
52 53 54 55 56
   * 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
61 62 63
   * 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.
64 65
   * Fix potential heap corruption on Windows when
     mbedtls_x509_crt_parse_path() is passed a path longer than 2GB. Cannot be
66
     triggered remotely. Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.
67 68 69
   * 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
70
     Vranken, Intelworks.
71 72 73 74
   * 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

75 76 77 78 79
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.)

81
Bugfix
82 83 84
   * 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
85 86
   * Fix build error with configurations where ECDHE-PSK is the only key
     exchange. Found and fix provided by Chris Hammond. #270
87 88
   * Fix build error with configurations where RSA, RSA-PSK, ECDH-RSA or
     ECHD-ECDSA if the only key exchange. Multiple reports. #310
89 90
   * 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
91 92 93
   * 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
94
     Matthew Page of Scannex Electronics Ltd.
95 96
   * Fix failures in MPI on Sparc(64) due to use of bad assembly code.
     Found by Kurt Danielson. #292
97
   * Fix typo in name of the extKeyUsage OID. Found by inestlerode, #314
98 99 100
   * 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.
101

102 103 104
Changes
   * Improved performance of mbedtls_ecp_muladd() when one of the scalars is 1
     or -1.

= mbed TLS 2.1.2 released 2015-10-06

108
Security
109
   * Added fix for CVE-2015-5291 to prevent heap corruption due to buffer
110 111
     overflow of the hostname or session ticket. Found by Guido Vranken,
     Intelworks.
112 113
   * 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.
114 115
     Found and patch provided by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced
     remotely.
116 117
   * Fix stack buffer overflow in pkcs12 decryption (used by
     mbedtls_pk_parse_key(file)() when the password is > 129 bytes.
118
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Not triggerable remotely.
119
   * Fix potential buffer overflow in mbedtls_mpi_read_string().
120 121 122 123
     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.
124
   * Fix potential random memory allocation in mbedtls_pem_read_buffer()
125 126 127 128 129 130
     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.
131
   * Fix potential double-free if mbedtls_conf_psk() is called repeatedly on
132 133
     the same mbedtls_ssl_config object and memory allocation fails. Found by
     Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced remotely.
134 135 136
   * 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.
137
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.
138

139 140 141
Bugfix
   * Fix compile error in net.c with musl libc. Found and patch provided by
     zhasha (#278).
142
   * Fix macroization of 'inline' keyword when building as C++. (#279)
143

144 145 146
Changes
   * Added checking of hostname length in mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname() to ensure
     domain names are compliant with RFC 1035.
147 148
   * Fixed paths for check_config.h in example config files. (Found by bachp)
     (#291)

152 153 154 155
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/
156 157
   * Fix possible client-side NULL pointer dereference (read) when the client
     tries to continue the handshake after it failed (a misuse of the API).
158 159
     (Found and patch provided by Fabian Foerg, Gotham Digital Science using
     afl-fuzz.)
160

161 162
Bugfix
   * Fix warning when using a 64bit platform. (found by embedthis) (#275)
163 164 165
   * Fix off-by-one error in parsing Supported Point Format extension that
     caused some handshakes to fail.

166 167 168
Changes
   * Made X509 profile pointer const in mbedtls_ssl_conf_cert_profile() to allow
     use of mbedtls_x509_crt_profile_next. (found by NWilson)
169 170 171 172 173 174 175
   * 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.)

230
Features
231 232 233 234 235 236
   * 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.
237 238 239 240 241 242
   * 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.
243

244
API Changes
245 246
   * The library has been split into libmbedcrypto, libmbedx509, libmbedtls.
     You now need to link to all of them if you use TLS for example.
247
   * All public identifiers moved to the mbedtls_* or MBEDTLS_* namespace.
248
     Some names have been further changed to make them more consistent.
249
     Migration helpers scripts/rename.pl and include/mbedlts/compat-1.3.h are
250
     provided. Full list of renamings in scripts/data_files/rename-1.3-2.0.txt
251
   * Renamings of fields inside structures, not covered by the previous list:
252 253 254
     mbedtls_cipher_info_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_cipher_context_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_ecp_curve_info.size -> bit_size
255
   * Headers are now found in the 'mbedtls' directory (previously 'polarssl').
256
   * The following _init() functions that could return errors have
257
     been split into an _init() that returns void and another function that
258
     should generally be the first function called on this context after init:
259
     mbedtls_ssl_init() -> mbedtls_ssl_setup()
260
     mbedtls_ccm_init() -> mbedtls_ccm_setkey()
261
     mbedtls_gcm_init() -> mbedtls_gcm_setkey()
262 263
     mbedtls_hmac_drbg_init() -> mbedtls_hmac_drbg_seed(_buf)()
     mbedtls_ctr_drbg_init()  -> mbedtls_ctr_drbg_seed()
264
     Note that for mbedtls_ssl_setup(), you need to be done setting up the
265
     ssl_config structure before calling it.
266
   * Most ssl_set_xxx() functions (all except ssl_set_bio(), ssl_set_hostname(),
267 268 269 270
     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.
271 272
   * ssl_set_bio() changed signature (contexts merged, order switched, one
     additional callback for read-with-timeout).
273 274 275 276 277
   * 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()
278
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_ca_chain() lost its last argument (peer_cn), now set
279
     using mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname().
280
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_cache() changed prototype (only one context
281
     pointer, parameters reordered).
282 283
   * On server, mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets_cb() must now be used in
     place of mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets() to enable session tickets.
284 285
   * The SSL debug callback gained two new arguments (file name, line number).
   * Debug modes were removed.
286
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_truncated_hmac() now returns void.
287
   * mbedtls_memory_buffer_alloc_init() now returns void.
288 289 290
   * X.509 verification flags are now an uint32_t. Affect the signature of:
     mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result()
     mbedtls_x509_ctr_verify_info()
291
     mbedtls_x509_crt_verify() (flags, f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
292
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_verify() (f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
293 294 295 296 297 298
   * 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()
299 300
   * In the NET module, all "int" and "int *" arguments for file descriptors
     changed type to "mbedtls_net_context *".
301
   * net_accept() gained new arguments for the size of the client_ip buffer.
302 303
   * In the threading layer, mbedtls_mutex_init() and mbedtls_mutex_free() now
     return void.
304 305
   * ecdsa_write_signature() gained an addtional md_alg argument and
     ecdsa_write_signature_det() was deprecated.
306
   * pk_sign() no longer accepts md_alg == POLARSSL_MD_NONE with ECDSA.
307 308
   * Last argument of x509_crt_check_key_usage() and
     mbedtls_x509write_crt_set_key_usage() changed from int to unsigned.
309 310 311
   * 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
312
     strings; use the new *_len variables instead of strlen().
313 314 315
   * 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.
316
   * Signature of mpi_mul_mpi() changed to make the last argument unsigned
317 318
   * calloc() is now used instead of malloc() everywhere. API of platform
     layer and the memory_buffer_alloc module changed accordingly.
319
     (Thanks to Mansour Moufid for helping with the replacement.)
320 321
   * Change SSL_DISABLE_RENEGOTIATION config.h flag to SSL_RENEGOTIATION
     (support for renegotiation now needs explicit enabling in config.h).
322 323
   * Split MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME into MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME and MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME_DATE
     in config.h
324 325
   * net_connect() and net_bind() have a new 'proto' argument to choose
     between TCP and UDP, using the macros NET_PROTO_TCP or NET_PROTO_UDP.
326
     Their 'port' argument type is changed to a string.
327 328 329
   * Some constness fixes

Removals
330
   * Removed mbedtls_ecp_group_read_string(). Only named groups are supported.
331 332
   * Removed mbedtls_ecp_sub() and mbedtls_ecp_add(), use
     mbedtls_ecp_muladd().
333 334 335
   * Removed individual mdX_hmac, shaX_hmac, mdX_file and shaX_file functions
     (use generic functions from md.h)
   * Removed mbedtls_timing_msleep(). Use mbedtls_net_usleep() or a custom
336
     waiting function.
337
   * Removed test DHM parameters from the test certs module.
338 339 340 341 342 343 344 345 346 347 348
   * Removed the PBKDF2 module (use PKCS5).
   * Removed POLARSSL_ERROR_STRERROR_BC (use mbedtls_strerror()).
   * Removed compat-1.2.h (helper for migrating from 1.2 to 1.3).
   * Removed openssl.h (very partial OpenSSL compatibility layer).
   * 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).
   * Configuration option POLARSSL_HAVE_IPV6 was removed (always enabled).
   * Removed test program o_p_test, the script compat.sh does more.
   * Removed test program ssl_test, superseded by ssl-opt.sh.
   * Removed helper script active-config.pl
349 350 351 352

New deprecations
   * md_init_ctx() is deprecated in favour of md_setup(), that adds a third
     argument (allowing memory savings if HMAC is not used)
353

354
Semi-API changes (technically public, morally private)
355 356
   * Renamed a few headers to include _internal in the name. Those headers are
     not supposed to be included by users.
357 358
   * Changed md_info_t into an opaque structure (use md_get_xxx() accessors).
   * Changed pk_info_t into an opaque structure.
359 360
   * Changed cipher_base_t into an opaque structure.

362 363
   * Removed r and s from ecdsa_context
   * Removed mode from des_context and des3_context
364

365
Default behavior changes
366
   * The default minimum TLS version is now TLS 1.0.
367 368
   * RC4 is now blacklisted by default in the SSL/TLS layer, and excluded from the
     default ciphersuite list returned by ssl_list_ciphersuites()
369 370
   * Support for receiving SSLv2 ClientHello is now disabled by default at
     compile time.
371
   * The default authmode for SSL/TLS clients is now REQUIRED.
372 373 374
   * 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
375
   * Default DHM parameters server-side upgraded from 1024 to 2048 bits.
376 377
   * A minimum RSA key size of 2048 bits is now enforced during ceritificate
     chain verification.
378
   * Negotiation of truncated HMAC is now disabled by default on server too.
379 380 381 382 383 384
   * 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()
385

386
Requirement changes
387
   * The minimum MSVC version required is now 2010 (better C99 support).
388
   * The NET layer now unconditionnaly relies on getaddrinfo() and select().
389
   * Compiler is required to support C99 types such as long long and uint32_t.
390

391
API changes from the 1.4 preview branch
392 393
   * ssl_set_bio_timeout() was removed, split into mbedtls_ssl_set_bio() with
     new prototype, and mbedtls_ssl_set_read_timeout().
394 395 396 397
   * The following functions now return void:
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_transport()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_max_version()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_min_version()
398 399 400 401
   * 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().
402 403
   * With UDP sockets, it is no longer necessary to call net_bind() again
     after a successful net_accept().
404

405 406 407
Changes
   * mbedtls_ctr_drbg_random() and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_random() are now
     thread-safe if MBEDTLS_THREADING_C is enabled.
408 409
   * Reduced ROM fooprint of SHA-256 and added an option to reduce it even
     more (at the expense of performance) MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER.

     extendedKeyUsage on the leaf certificate was lost (results not accessible
     via ssl_get_verify_results()).
417 418

     cross-compilation easier (thanks to Alon Bar-Lev).
434 435 436 437 438 439
   * 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).
440
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_WARNING (off by default) to produce
441
     warnings on use of deprecated functions (with GCC and Clang only).

     (suggested by Thorsten Mühlfelder).
497 498 499 500

     "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.

732

733 734
Features
   * Support for the ALPN SSL extension
735
   * Add option 'use_dev_random' to gen_key application
736

737
     certificates (POLARSSL_X509_CHECK_KEY_USAGE)
738 739
   * Enable verification of the extendedKeyUsage extension
     (POLARSSL_X509_CHECK_EXTENDED_KEY_USAGE)
740

741 742
Changes
   * x509_crt_info() now prints information about parsed extensions as well
743 744
   * pk_verify() now returns a specific error code when the signature is valid
     but shorter than the supplied length.
745
   * Use UTC time to check certificate validity.
746
   * Reject certificates with times not in UTC, per RFC 5280.

     (Found by Watson Ladd.)
751 752 753 754
   * The notAfter date of some certificates was no longer checked since 1.3.5.
     This affects certificates in the user-supplied chain except the top
     certificate. If the user-supplied chain contains only one certificates,
     it is not affected (ie, its notAfter date is properly checked).
755 756
   * Prevent potential NULL pointer dereference in ssl_read_record() (found by
     TrustInSoft)
757

758 759

     (found by Gergely Budai)
768 769
   * Fix compile errors when POLARSSL_ERROR_STRERROR_BC is undefined (found by
     Shuo Chen).
770 771
   * oid_get_numeric_string() used to truncate the output without returning an
     error if the output buffer was just 1 byte too small.
772
   * dhm_parse_dhm() (hence dhm_parse_dhmfile()) did not set dhm->len.
773 774
   * Calling pk_debug() on an RSA-alt key would segfault.
   * pk_get_size() and pk_get_len() were off by a factor 8 for RSA-alt keys.
775 776
   * Potential buffer overwrite in pem_write_buffer() because of low length
     indication (found by Thijs Alkemade)
777 778
   * EC curves constants, which should be only in ROM since 1.3.3, were also
     stored in RAM due to missing 'const's (found by Gergely Budai).

     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.)

= Version 1.2.11 released 2014-07-11
Features
   * Entropy module now supports seed writing and reading

Changes
   * Introduced POLARSSL_HAVE_READDIR_R for systems without it
   * Improvements to the CMake build system, contributed by Julian Ospald.
   * Work around a bug of the version of Clang shipped by Apple with Mavericks
     that prevented bignum.c from compiling. (Reported by Rafael Baptista.)
   * Improvements to tests/Makefile, contributed by Oden Eriksson.
   * Use UTC time to check certificate validity.
   * Reject certificates with times not in UTC, per RFC 5280.
   * Migrate zeroizing of data to polarssl_zeroize() instead of memset()
     against unwanted compiler optimizations

Security
   * Forbid change of server certificate during renegotiation to prevent
     "triple handshake" attack when authentication mode is optional (the
     attack was already impossible when authentication is required).
   * Check notBefore timestamp of certificates and CRLs from the future.
   * Forbid sequence number wrapping
   * Prevent potential NULL pointer dereference in ssl_read_record() (found by
     TrustInSoft)
   * Fix length checking for AEAD ciphersuites (found by Codenomicon).
     It was possible to crash the server (and client) using crafted messages
     when a GCM suite was chosen.

Bugfix
   * Fixed X.509 hostname comparison (with non-regular characters)
   * SSL now gracefully handles missing RNG
   * crypt_and_hash app checks MAC before final decryption
   * Fixed x509_crt_parse_path() bug on Windows platforms
   * Added missing MPI_CHK() around some statements in mpi_div_mpi() (found by
     TrustInSoft)
   * Fixed potential overflow in certificate size verification in
     ssl_write_certificate() (found by TrustInSoft)
   * Fix ASM format in bn_mul.h
   * Potential memory leak in bignum_selftest()
   * Replaced expired test certificate
   * ssl_mail_client now terminates lines with CRLF, instead of LF
   * Fix bug in RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 "reversed" operations
   * Fixed testing with out-of-source builds using cmake
   * Fixed version-major intolerance in server
   * Fixed CMake symlinking on out-of-source builds
   * Bignum's MIPS-32 assembly was used on MIPS-64, causing chaos. (Found by
     Alex Wilson.)
   * ssl_init() was leaving a dirty pointer in ssl_context if malloc of
     out_ctr failed
   * ssl_handshake_init() was leaving dirty pointers in subcontexts if malloc
     of one of them failed
   * x509_get_current_time() uses localtime_r() to prevent thread issues
   * Some example server programs were not sending the close_notify alert.
   * Potential memory leak in mpi_exp_mod() when error occurs during
     calculation of RR.
   * Improve interoperability by not writing extension length in ClientHello
     when no extensions are present (found by Matthew Page)
   * rsa_check_pubkey() now allows an E up to N
   * On OpenBSD, use arc4random_buf() instead of rand() to prevent warnings
   * mpi_fill_random() was creating numbers larger than requested on
     big-endian platform when size was not an integer number of limbs
   * Fix detection of DragonflyBSD in net.c (found by Markus Pfeiffer)
   * Stricter check on SSL ClientHello internal sizes compared to actual packet
     size (found by TrustInSoft)
   * Fix preprocessor checks for bn_mul PPC asm (found by Barry K. Nathan).
   * Use \n\t rather than semicolons for bn_mul asm, since some assemblers
     interpret semicolons as comment delimiters (found by Barry K. Nathan).
   * Disable broken Sparc64 bn_mul assembly (found by Florian Obser).
   * Fix base64_decode() to return and check length correctly (in case of
     tight buffers)

= Version 1.2.8 released 2013-06-19
Features
   * Parsing of PKCS#8 encrypted private key files
   * PKCS#12 PBE and derivation functions
   * Centralized module option values in config.h to allow user-defined
     settings without editing header files by using POLARSSL_CONFIG_OPTIONS

Changes
   * HAVEGE random generator disabled by default
   * Internally split up x509parse_key() into a (PEM) handler function
     and specific DER parser functions for the PKCS#1 and unencrypted
     PKCS#8 private key formats
   * Added mechanism to provide alternative implementations for all
     symmetric cipher and hash algorithms (e.g. POLARSSL_AES_ALT in
	 config.h)
   * PKCS#5 module added. Moved PBKDF2 functionality inside and deprecated
     old PBKDF2 module

Bugfix
   * Secure renegotiation extension should only be sent in case client
     supports secure renegotiation
   * Fixed offset for cert_type list in ssl_parse_certificate_request()
   * Fixed const correctness
