= 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.

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.

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.

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

42 43 44
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
45
     Follath. #309
46 47
   * Fix potential build failures related to the 'apidoc' target, introduced
     in the previous patch release. Found by Robert Scheck. #390 #391
48
   * Fix issue in Makefile that prevented building using armar. #386
49 50
   * 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.
51 52 53
   * 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.
54 55
   * Fix bug in mbedtls_x509_crt_parse that caused trailing extra data in the

66 67 68 69
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.
70
   * Disabled SSLv3 in the default configuration.
71 72
   * Optimized mbedtls_mpi_zeroize() for MPI integer size. (Fix by Alexey
     Skalozub).
73 74
   * 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
82 83 84 85
   * 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
89 90 91
   * 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

     JayaraghavendranK. #372
94 95 96 97 98
   * 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

   * 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.
106 107
   * Fix potential heap corruption on Windows when
     mbedtls_x509_crt_parse_path() is passed a path longer than 2GB. Cannot be
108
     triggered remotely. Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.
109 110 111
   * 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
112
     Vranken, Intelworks.
113 114 115 116
   * 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

117 118 119 120 121
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.)

123
Bugfix
124 125 126
   * 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
127 128
   * Fix build error with configurations where ECDHE-PSK is the only key
     exchange. Found and fix provided by Chris Hammond. #270
129 130
   * Fix build error with configurations where RSA, RSA-PSK, ECDH-RSA or
     ECHD-ECDSA if the only key exchange. Multiple reports. #310
131 132
   * 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
133 134 135
   * 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
136
     Matthew Page of Scannex Electronics Ltd.
137 138
   * Fix failures in MPI on Sparc(64) due to use of bad assembly code.
     Found by Kurt Danielson. #292

   * Fix typo in name of the extKeyUsage OID. Found by inestlerode, #314
140 141 142
   * 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.

Security
151
   * Added fix for CVE-2015-5291 to prevent heap corruption due to buffer
152 153
     overflow of the hostname or session ticket. Found by Guido Vranken,
     Intelworks.
154 155
   * 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.
156 157
     Found and patch provided by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced
     remotely.
158 159
   * Fix stack buffer overflow in pkcs12 decryption (used by
     mbedtls_pk_parse_key(file)() when the password is > 129 bytes.
160
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Not triggerable remotely.
161
   * Fix potential buffer overflow in mbedtls_mpi_read_string().
162 163 164 165
     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.
166
   * Fix potential random memory allocation in mbedtls_pem_read_buffer()
167 168 169 170 171 172
     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.
173
   * Fix potential double-free if mbedtls_conf_psk() is called repeatedly on
174 175
     the same mbedtls_ssl_config object and memory allocation fails. Found by
     Guido Vranken, Intelworks. Cannot be forced remotely.
176 177 178
   * 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.
179
     Found by Guido Vranken, Intelworks.

Bugfix
   * Fix compile error in net.c with musl libc. Found and patch provided by
     zhasha (#278).
184
   * Fix macroization of 'inline' keyword when building as C++. (#279)
185

186 187 188
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/
198 199
   * Fix possible client-side NULL pointer dereference (read) when the client
     tries to continue the handshake after it failed (a misuse of the API).
200 201
     (Found and patch provided by Fabian Foerg, Gotham Digital Science using
     afl-fuzz.)
202

203 204
Bugfix
   * Fix warning when using a 64bit platform. (found by embedthis) (#275)
205 206 207
   * Fix off-by-one error in parsing Supported Point Format extension that
     caused some handshakes to fail.

208 209 210
Changes
   * Made X509 profile pointer const in mbedtls_ssl_conf_cert_profile() to allow
     use of mbedtls_x509_crt_profile_next. (found by NWilson)
211 212 213 214 215 216 217
   * 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.)

272
Features
273 274 275 276 277 278
   * 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.
279 280 281 282 283 284
   * 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.
285

286
API Changes
287 288
   * The library has been split into libmbedcrypto, libmbedx509, libmbedtls.
     You now need to link to all of them if you use TLS for example.
289
   * All public identifiers moved to the mbedtls_* or MBEDTLS_* namespace.
290
     Some names have been further changed to make them more consistent.
291
     Migration helpers scripts/rename.pl and include/mbedlts/compat-1.3.h are
292
     provided. Full list of renamings in scripts/data_files/rename-1.3-2.0.txt
293
   * Renamings of fields inside structures, not covered by the previous list:
294 295 296
     mbedtls_cipher_info_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_cipher_context_t.key_length -> key_bitlen
     mbedtls_ecp_curve_info.size -> bit_size
297
   * Headers are now found in the 'mbedtls' directory (previously 'polarssl').
298
   * The following _init() functions that could return errors have
299
     been split into an _init() that returns void and another function that
300
     should generally be the first function called on this context after init:
301
     mbedtls_ssl_init() -> mbedtls_ssl_setup()
302
     mbedtls_ccm_init() -> mbedtls_ccm_setkey()
303
     mbedtls_gcm_init() -> mbedtls_gcm_setkey()
304 305
     mbedtls_hmac_drbg_init() -> mbedtls_hmac_drbg_seed(_buf)()
     mbedtls_ctr_drbg_init()  -> mbedtls_ctr_drbg_seed()
306
     Note that for mbedtls_ssl_setup(), you need to be done setting up the
307
     ssl_config structure before calling it.
308
   * Most ssl_set_xxx() functions (all except ssl_set_bio(), ssl_set_hostname(),
309 310 311 312
     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.
313 314
   * ssl_set_bio() changed signature (contexts merged, order switched, one
     additional callback for read-with-timeout).
315 316 317 318 319
   * 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()
320
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_ca_chain() lost its last argument (peer_cn), now set
321
     using mbedtls_ssl_set_hostname().
322
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_cache() changed prototype (only one context
323
     pointer, parameters reordered).
324 325
   * On server, mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets_cb() must now be used in
     place of mbedtls_ssl_conf_session_tickets() to enable session tickets.
326 327
   * The SSL debug callback gained two new arguments (file name, line number).
   * Debug modes were removed.
328
   * mbedtls_ssl_conf_truncated_hmac() now returns void.
329
   * mbedtls_memory_buffer_alloc_init() now returns void.
330 331 332
   * X.509 verification flags are now an uint32_t. Affect the signature of:
     mbedtls_ssl_get_verify_result()
     mbedtls_x509_ctr_verify_info()
333
     mbedtls_x509_crt_verify() (flags, f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
334
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_verify() (f_vrfy -> needs to be updated)
335 336 337 338 339 340
   * 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()
341 342
   * In the NET module, all "int" and "int *" arguments for file descriptors
     changed type to "mbedtls_net_context *".
343
   * net_accept() gained new arguments for the size of the client_ip buffer.
344 345
   * In the threading layer, mbedtls_mutex_init() and mbedtls_mutex_free() now
     return void.
346 347
   * ecdsa_write_signature() gained an addtional md_alg argument and
     ecdsa_write_signature_det() was deprecated.
348
   * pk_sign() no longer accepts md_alg == POLARSSL_MD_NONE with ECDSA.
349 350
   * Last argument of x509_crt_check_key_usage() and
     mbedtls_x509write_crt_set_key_usage() changed from int to unsigned.
351 352 353
   * 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
354
     strings; use the new *_len variables instead of strlen().
355 356 357
   * 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.
358
   * Signature of mpi_mul_mpi() changed to make the last argument unsigned
359 360
   * calloc() is now used instead of malloc() everywhere. API of platform
     layer and the memory_buffer_alloc module changed accordingly.
361
     (Thanks to Mansour Moufid for helping with the replacement.)
362 363
   * Change SSL_DISABLE_RENEGOTIATION config.h flag to SSL_RENEGOTIATION
     (support for renegotiation now needs explicit enabling in config.h).
364 365
   * Split MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME into MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME and MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME_DATE

Removals
372
   * Removed mbedtls_ecp_group_read_string(). Only named groups are supported.

378
     waiting function.
379

   * 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)
395

396
Semi-API changes (technically public, morally private)
397 398
   * Renamed a few headers to include _internal in the name. Those headers are
     not supposed to be included by users.
399 400

407
Default behavior changes
408
   * The default minimum TLS version is now TLS 1.0.
409 410

     default ciphersuite list returned by ssl_list_ciphersuites()
411 412
   * Support for receiving SSLv2 ClientHello is now disabled by default at
     compile time.
413
   * The default authmode for SSL/TLS clients is now REQUIRED.
414 415 416
   * 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
417
   * Default DHM parameters server-side upgraded from 1024 to 2048 bits.
418 419
   * A minimum RSA key size of 2048 bits is now enforced during ceritificate
     chain verification.
420
   * Negotiation of truncated HMAC is now disabled by default on server too.
421 422 423 424 425 426

     mbedtls_ecp_curve_info_from_name()
     mbedtls_md_info_from_string()
     mbedtls_ssl_ciphersuite_from_string()
     mbedtls_version_check_feature()
427

428
Requirement changes
429
   * The minimum MSVC version required is now 2010 (better C99 support).
430
   * The NET layer now unconditionnaly relies on getaddrinfo() and select().
431
   * Compiler is required to support C99 types such as long long and uint32_t.
432

433
API changes from the 1.4 preview branch
434 435
   * ssl_set_bio_timeout() was removed, split into mbedtls_ssl_set_bio() with
     new prototype, and mbedtls_ssl_set_read_timeout().
436 437 438 439
   * The following functions now return void:
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_transport()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_max_version()
     mbedtls_ssl_conf_min_version()
440 441 442 443
   * 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().
444 445
   * With UDP sockets, it is no longer necessary to call net_bind() again
     after a successful net_accept().
446

447 448 449
Changes
   * mbedtls_ctr_drbg_random() and mbedtls_hmac_drbg_random() are now
     thread-safe if MBEDTLS_THREADING_C is enabled.
450 451
   * Reduced ROM fooprint of SHA-256 and added an option to reduce it even
     more (at the expense of performance) MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER.

Security
456
   * With authmode set to SSL_VERIFY_OPTIONAL, verification of keyUsage and
457 458
     extendedKeyUsage on the leaf certificate was lost (results not accessible
     via ssl_get_verify_results()).
459 460

     layer (helps get rid of unwanted references).
474 475
   * Improved Makefiles for Windows targets by fixing library targets and making
     cross-compilation easier (thanks to Alon Bar-Lev).
476 477 478 479 480 481
   * 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).
482
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_WARNING (off by default) to produce
483
     warnings on use of deprecated functions (with GCC and Clang only).
484
   * Add config flag POLARSSL_DEPRECATED_REMOVED (off by default) to produce

   * Fix compile errors when POLARSSL_ERROR_STRERROR_BC is undefined (found by
     Shuo Chen).
812 813
   * oid_get_numeric_string() used to truncate the output without returning an
     error if the output buffer was just 1 byte too small.
814
   * dhm_parse_dhm() (hence dhm_parse_dhmfile()) did not set dhm->len.
815 816
   * Calling pk_debug() on an RSA-alt key would segfault.

   * Forbid repeated extensions in X.509 certificates.

= Version 1.2.12 released 2014-10-24

Security
   * Remotely-triggerable memory leak when parsing some X.509 certificates
     (server is not affected if it doesn't ask for a client certificate).
     (Found using Codenomicon Defensics.)

Bugfix
   * Fix potential bad read in parsing ServerHello (found by Adrien
     Vialletelle).
   * ssl_close_notify() could send more than one message in some circumstances
     with non-blocking I/O.
   * x509_crt_parse() did not increase total_failed on PEM error
   * Fix compiler warnings on iOS (found by Sander Niemeijer).
   * Don't print uninitialised buffer in ssl_mail_client (found by Marc Abel).
   * Fix net_accept() regarding non-blocking sockets (found by Luca Pesce).
   * ssl_read() could return non-application data records on server while
     renegotation was pending, and on client when a HelloRequest was received.
   * Fix warnings from Clang's scan-build (contributed by Alfred Klomp).

Changes
   * X.509 certificates with more than one AttributeTypeAndValue per
     RelativeDistinguishedName are not accepted any more.
   * ssl_read() now returns POLARSSL_ERR_NET_WANT_READ rather than
     POLARSSL_ERR_SSL_UNEXPECTED_MESSAGE on harmless alerts.
   * Accept spaces at end of line or end of buffer in base64_decode().
