GnuTLS 3.1.2

Item posted by Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos <nmav> on Wed 26 Sep 2012 06:51:51 PM UTC.

  • Version 3.1.2 (released 2012-09-26)
    • libgnutls: Fixed bug in gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_system_trust() and gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_trust_mem() that prevented the loading

of certificates in the windows platform.

    • libgnutls: Corrected bug in OpenPGP subpacket encoding.
    • libgnutls: Added support for DTLS/TLS heartbeats by Olga Smolenchuk. (the work was done during Google Summer of Code).
    • 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: Prints warning on certificates that contain keys of

an insecure level. If the %COMPAT priority flag is not specified
the TLS connection fails.

    • libgnutls: Correctly restore gnutls_record_recv() in DTLS mode

if interrupted during the retrasmition of handshake data.

    • libgnutls: Better mingw32 support (patch by LRN).
    • libgnutls: The %COMPAT keyword, if specified, will tolerate

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

    • 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.
    • certtool: Prints the number of bits of the public key algorithm parameter in a private key.
    • API and ABI modifications:

gnutls_x509_privkey_get_pk_algorithm2: Added
gnutls_heartbeat_ping: Added
gnutls_heartbeat_pong: Added
gnutls_heartbeat_allowed: Added
gnutls_heartbeat_enable: Added
gnutls_heartbeat_set_timeouts: Added
gnutls_heartbeat_get_timeout: Added
