yaSSL Release notes, version 2.4.2 (09/22/2016)


This release of yaSSL fixes a medium security vulnerability. A fix for potential AES side channel leaks is included that a local user monitoring the same CPU core cache could exploit.  VM users, hyper-threading users, and users where potential attackers have access to the CPU cache will need to update if they utilize AES.


DSA padding fixes for unusual sizes is included as well.  Users with DSA certificates should update.


yaSSL Release notes, version 2.4.0 (05/20/2016)


This release of yaSSL fixes the OpenSSL compatibility function SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations() when using the path directory to allow unlimited path sizes.  Minor Windows build fixes are included. No high level security fixes in this version but we always recommend updating.



yaSSL Release notes, version 2.3.9b (02/03/2016)


This release of yaSSL fixes the OpenSSL compatibility function X509_NAME_get_index_by_NID() to use the actual index of the common name instead of searching on the format prefix.  Thanks for the report from [email protected]. Anyone using this function should update.



yaSSL Release notes, version 2.3.9 (12/01/2015)


This release of yaSSL fixes two client side Diffie-Hellman problems. yaSSL was only handling the cases of zero or one leading zeros for the key agreement instead of potentially any number.  This caused about 1 in 50,000 connections to fail when using DHE cipher suites.  The second problem was the case where a server would send a public value shorter than the prime value, causing about 1 in 128 client connections to fail, and also caused the yaSSL client to read off the end of memory.  All client side DHE cipher suite users should update.


Thanks to Adam Langely ([email protected]) for the detailed report!



yaSSL Release notes, version 2.3.8 (09/17/2015)


This release of yaSSL fixes a high security vulnerability.  All users SHOULD update.  If using yaSSL for TLS on the server side with private RSA keys allowing ephemeral key exchange you MUST update and regenerate the RSA private keys.  This report is detailed in:


https://people.redhat.com/~fweimer/rsa-crt-leaks.pdf


yaSSL now detects RSA signature faults and returns an error.



yaSSL Release notes, version 2.3.7 (12/10/2014)


This release of yaSSL fixes the potential to process duplicate handshake messages by explicitly marking/checking received handshake messages.



yaSSL Release notes, version 2.3.6 (11/25/2014)

This release of yaSSL contains bug fixes, portability enhancements, and

support for GCC 4.1.1 and vs2005 sp1.




Since yaSSL now supports zlib, as does libcurl, the libcurl build test can

fail if yaSSL is built with zlib support since the zlib library isn't

passed.  You can do two things to fix this:


    1) build yaSSL w/o zlib --without-zlib

    2) or add flags to curl configure LDFLAGS="-lm -lz"




yaSSL Release notes, version 1.5.0 (11/09/06)


This release of yaSSL contains bug fixes, portability enhancements,

and full TLS 1.1 support.  Use the functions:


    SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_1_server_method(void);

    SSL_METHOD *TLSv1_1_client_method(void);

   

or the SSLv23 versions (even though yaSSL doesn't support SSL 2.0 the v23

means to pick the highest of SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, or TLS 1.1).



See normal  build instructions below under 1.0.6.

See libcurl build instructions below under 1.3.0.




yaSSL Release notes, version 1.4.5 (10/15/06)



This release of yaSSL contains bug fixes, portability enhancements,

zlib compression support, removal of assembly instructions at runtime if

not supported, and initial TLS 1.1 support.


Compression Notes:  yaSSL uses zlib for compression and the compression

should only be used if yaSSL is at both ends because the implementation

details aren't yet standard.  If you'd like to turn compression on use

the SSL_set_compression() function on the client before calling

SSL_connect().  If both the client and server were built with zlib support

then the connection will use compression.  If the client isn't built with

support then SSL_set_compression() will return an error (-1).


To build yaSSL with zlib support on Unix simply have zlib support on your

system and configure will find it if it's in the standard locations.  If

it's somewhere else use the option ./configure --with-zlib=DIR.  If you'd

like to disable compression support in yaSSL use ./configure --without-zlib.


To build yaSSL with zlib support on Windows:


    1) download zlib from http://www.zlib.net/

    2) follow the instructions in zlib from projects/visualc6/README.txt

       for how to add the zlib project into the yaSSL workspace noting that

       you'll need to add configuration support for "Win32 Debug" and

       "Win32 Release" in note 3 under "To use:".

    3) define HAVE_LIBZ when building yaSSL

yaSSL Release notes, version 1.3.0 (04/26/06)



This release of yaSSL contains minor bug fixes, portability enhancements,

and libcurl support.


See normal build instructions below under 1.0.6.



--To build for libcurl on Linux, Solaris, *BSD, Mac OS X, or Cygwin:


  To build for libcurl the library needs to be built without C++ globals since

  the linker will be called in a C context, also libcurl configure will expect

  OpenSSL library names so some symbolic links are created.


    ./configure --enable-pure-c

    make

    make openssl-links


    (then go to your libcurl home and tell libcurl about yaSSL build dir)

    ./configure --with-ssl=/yaSSL-BuildDir LDFLAGS=-lm

    make



--To build for libcurl on Win32:


    Simply add the yaSSL project as a dependency to libcurl, add

    yaSSL-Home\include and yaSSL-Home\include\openssl to the include list, and

    define USE_SSLEAY and USE_OPENSSL

yassl Release notes, version 0.0.1


The first release of yassl supports normal RSA mode SSLv3 connections with

support for SHA-1 and MD5 digests.  Ciphers include DES, 3DES, and RC4.


yassl uses the CryptoPP library for cryptography, the source is available at

www.cryptopp.com .


yassl uses CML (the Certificate Management Library) for x509 support.  More

features will be in future versions.  The CML source is available for download

from www.digitalnet.com/knowledge/cml_home.htm .


The next release of yassl will support the 3 lesser-used SSL connection modes;

HandShake resumption, Ephemeral RSA (or DH), and Client Authentication as well

as full support for TLS.  Backwards support for SSLv2 is not planned at this

time.



**********************


Building yassl on linux:


use the ./buildall script to build everything.


buildall will configure and build CML, CryptoPP, and yassl.  Testing was

preformed with gcc version 3.3.2 on kernel 2.4.22.



**********************


Building yassl on Windows:


Testing was preformed on Windows 2000 with Visual C++ 6 sp5.


1) decompress esnacc_r16.tgz in place, see buildall for syntax if unsure


2) decompress smp_r23.tgz in place


3) unzip cryptopp51/crypto51.zip in place


4) Build SNACC (part of CML) using snacc_builds.dsw in the SNACC directory


5) Build SMP (part of CMP) using smp.dsw in the smp directory


6) Build yassl using yassl.dsw



**********************


examples, server and client:


Please see the server and client examples in both versions to see how to link

to yassl and the support libraries.  On linux do 'make server' and 'make

client' to build them. On Windows you will find the example projects in the

main workspace, yassl.dsw.


The example server and client are compatible with openssl.



**********************


Building yassl into mysql on linux:


Testing was done using mysql version 4.0.17.


alter openssl_libs in the configure file, line 21056. Change '-lssl -lcrypto'

to '-lyassl -lcryptopp -lcmapi -lcmlasn -lctil -lc++asn1'.


see build/config_command for the configure command used to configure mysql

please change /home/touska/ to the relevant directory of course.


add yassl/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH because libmysql/conf_to_src does not

use the ssl lib directory though it does use the ssl libraries.


make


make install
