yaSSL/CaySSL have no renegotiaton vulnerability

yaSSL/wolfSSL have no renegotiaton vulnerability

Hi! We`ve been getting a number of questions about the high profile vulnerabilities in OpenSSL, GnuTLS, NSS and mod_ssl.
This vulnerability is based on a potentially insecure SSL early feature that yaSSL chose to never support in the first place. As such, yaSSL/wolfSSL was never insecure.

More details on the issue can be found below: From CVE

“The TLS protocol, and the SSL protocol 3.0 and possibly earlier, as used in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, mod_ssl in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 and earlier, OpenSSL before 0.9.8l, GnuTLS 2.8.5 and earlier, Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) 3.12.4 and earlier, and other products, does not properly associate renegotiation handshakes with an existing connection, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to insert data into HTTPS sessions, and possibly other types of sessions protected by TLS or SSL, by sending an unauthenticated request that is processed retroactively by a server in a post-renegotiation context, related to a “plaintext injection” attack, aka the “Project Mogul” issue.”

yaSSL Embedded SSL Release 1.2.0

The wolfSSL embedded SSL library Release 1.2.0 is now available for download.
 
Release 1.2.0 for wolfSSL adds bug fixes and session negotiation when first use is read or write.
 
To get TLS 1.2 support please use the client and server functions:
 
SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_2_server_method(void);
SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_2_client_method(void);
 
The wolfSSL OpenSSL compatibility layer was tested against lighttpd 1.4.23, see the notes in README for build instructions. See the download page for a linux build of Lighty built with wolfSSL.  Let us know if you have any problems building wolfSSL with Lighty or if you need help building the wolfSSL/Lighty combination on another operating environment at info@yassl.com.

yaSSL Release 1.9.8

The yaSSL SSL library Release 1.9.8 is now available for download.
 
Release 1.9.8 for yaSSL adds bug fixes and support for the new stream ciphers Rabbit and HC-128.  We expect that these new stream ciphers will be especially useful to users that are encrypting streaming media like voice (VoIP) or video.

wolfSSL Release 1.1.0

The wolfSSL embedded SSL library Release 1.1.0 is now available for download.
 
Release 1.1.0 for wolfSSL adds bug fixes, a check against malicious session cache use, support for lighttpd, and TLS 1.2.
 
To get TLS 1.2 support please use the client and server functions:
 
SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_2_server_method(void);
SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_2_client_method(void);
 
The wolfSSL OpenSSL compatibility layer was tested against lighttpd 1.4.23, See the notes in README for build instructions. See the download page for a build of Lighty built with wolfSSL.  Let us know if you have any problems building wolfSSL with Lighty or if you need help building the wolfSSL/Lighty combination on another operating environment at info@yassl.com.

CyaSSL Embedded SSL Release 1.0.3

The CyaSSL embedded SSL library Release 1.0.3 is now available for download. Release 1.0.3 for CyaSSL adds bug fixes and improves OpenSSL compatibility support.  We believe that the CyaSSL now supports the bulk of the functions required to port applications over from OpenSSL.

Release 1.0.3 includes an alpha release of DTLS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datagram_Transport_Layer_Security) for both clients and servers. This is only for testing purposes at this time. Rebroadcast and reordering aren’t fully implemented at this time but will be for the next release.

wolfSSL Embedded SSL Release Candidate 3

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

wolfSSL Embedded SSL Release Candidate 2

The wolfSSL embedded SSL library Release Candidate 2 1.0.0 is now available for download. This release includes new stream ciphers HC-128 and RABBIT, they are also available as cipher suites. Building for the Nintendo Wii and Gamecube are also supported through devkitPro. See the README for details.

wolfSSL Release Candidate 1

The wolfSSL embedded ssl library Release Candidate 1 1.0.0 is now available for download. This release includes optimization improvements, reduced memory use, and an alternate I/O implementation. See the README for details.
