Release 3.4.6 (March 30, 2015) of the wolfSSL lightweight embedded SSL library has bug fixes and new features including:
• Intel Assembly Speedups using instructions rdrand, rdseed, aesni, avx1/2, rorx, mulx, adox, adcx . They can be enabled with “–enable-intelasm”. These speedup the use of RNG, SHA2, and public key algorithms.
• Ed25519 support at the crypto level. Turn on with –enable-ed25519. Examples in “wolcrypt/test/test.c”, ed25519_test().
• Post Handshake Memory reductions. wolfSSL can now hold less than 1,000 bytes of memory per secure connection including cipher state.
• wolfSSL API and wolfCrypt API fixes, you can still include the cyassl and ctaocrypt headers which will enable the compatibility APIs for the foreseeable future
• INSTALL file to help direct users to build instructions for their environment
• For ECC users with the normal math library a fix that prevents a crash when verify signature fails. Users of 3.4.0 with ECC and the normal math library must update
• RC4 is now disabled by default in autoconf mode
• AES-GCM and ChaCha20/Poly1305 are now enabled by default to make AEAD ciphers available without a switch
• External ChaCha-Poly AEAD API, thanks to Andrew Burks for the contribution
• DHE-PSK cipher suites can now be built without ASN or Cert support
• Fix some NO MD5 build issues with optional features
• Freescale CodeWarrior project updates
• ECC curves can be individually turned on/off at build time.
• Sniffer handles Cert Status message and other minor fixes
• SetMinVersion() at the wolfSSL Context level instead of just SSL session level to allow minimum protocol version allowed at runtime
• RNG failure resource cleanup fix
• No high level security fixes that requires an update though we always recommend updating to the latest (except note 6, use case of ecc/normal math)
See the INSTALL file included with the wolfSSL download for build instructions.
