GnuTLS 3.0.24

Item posted by Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos <nmav> on Wed 26 Sep 2012 06:47:05 PM UTC.

I've just released gnutls 3.0.24. This is a bug-fix release on the old stable branch.

  • Version 3.0.24 (released 2012-09-26)
    • libgnutls: The %COMPAT keyword, if specified, will tolerate

key usage violation errors (they are far too common to ignore).

    • libgnutls: Corrected bug in OpenPGP subpacket encoding.
    • libgnutls: Added X.509 certificate verification flag

GNUTLS_VERIFY_ALLOW_UNSORTED_CHAIN. This flag allows the verification of unsorted certificate chains and is enabled by default for TLS certificate verification (if gnutls_certificate_set_verify_flags() does not override it).

    • libgnutls: Correctly restore gnutls_record_recv() in DTLS mode

if interrupted during the retrasmition of handshake data.

    • libgnutls: Added GNUTLS_STATELESS_COMPRESSION flag to gnutls_init(), which provides a tool to counter compression-related attacks where parts of the data are controlled by the attacker and are placed in separate records (use with care - do not use compression if not sure).
    • libgnutls: Depends on libtasn1 2.14 or later.
    • API and ABI modifications:

No changes since last version.
