[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: {gnutls/libgnutls28/gnutls-devel/gnutls-doc/gnutls-guile}-3.1.10-1: Library implementing TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols


New versions of 'gnutls/libgnutls28/gnutls-devel/gnutls-doc/gnutls-guile' have been uploaded to a server near you.

 o Update to latest upstream version
 o Build for cygwin 1.7.18 with gcc-4.5.3

gnutls NEWS:
* Version 3.1.10 (released 2013-03-22)

** certtool: When generating PKCS #12 files use by default the 
ARCFOUR (RC4) cipher to be compatible with devices that don't
support AES with PKCS #12.

** libgnutls: Load CA certificates in android 4.x systems.

** libgnutls: Optimized CA certificate loading.

** libgnutls: Private keys are overwritten on deinitialization.

** libgnutls: PKCS #11 slots are scanned only when needed, not
on initialization. This speeds up gnutls initialization when smart
cards are present.

** libgnutls: Corrected issue in the (deprecated) external key
signing interface, when used with TLS 1.2. Reported by Bjorn H. Christensen.

** libgnutls: Fixes in openpgp handshake with fingerprints. Reported by 
Joke de Buhr.

** libgnutls-dane: Updated DANE verification options.

** configure: Trust store file must be explicitly set or unset when 
cross compiling.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn2: Added
gnutls_x509_crt_get_dn2: Added
gnutls_x509_crl_get_issuer_dn2: Added
gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn2: Added

* Version 3.1.9 (released 2013-02-27)

** certtool: Option --to-p12 will now ask for a password to generate
a PKCS #12 file from an encrypted key file. Reported by Yan Fiz.

** libgnutls: Corrected issue in gnutls_pubkey_verify_data().

** libgnutls: Corrected parsing issue in XMPP within a subject 
alternative name. Reported by James Cloos.

** libgnutls: gnutls_pkcs11_reinit() will reinitialize all PKCS #11
modules, and not only the ones loaded via p11-kit.

** libgnutls: Added function to check whether the private key is
still available (inserted).

** libgnutls: Try to detect fork even during nonce generation.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_handshake_set_random: Added
gnutls_transport_set_int2: Added
gnutls_transport_get_int2: Added
gnutls_transport_get_int: Added
gnutls_record_cork: Exported
gnutls_record_uncork: Exported
gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_status: Added

* Version 3.1.8 (released 2013-02-10)

** libgnutls: Fixed issue in gnutls_x509_privkey_import2() which didn't return
GNUTLS_E_DECRYPTION_FAILED in all cases, and affect certtool operation
with encrypted keys. Reported by Yan Fiz.

** libgnutls: The minimum DH bits accepted by priorities NORMAL and
PERFORMANCE was set to previous defaults 727 bits. Reported by Diego
Elio Petteno.

** libgnutls: Corrected issue which prevented gnutls_pubkey_verify_hash() 
to operate with long keys. Reported by Erik A Jensen.

** API and ABI modifications:
No changes since last version.

* Version 3.1.7 (released 2013-02-04)

** certtool: Added option "dn" which allows to directly set the DN
in a template from an RFC4514 string.

** danetool: Added options: --dlv and --insecure. Suggested by Paul Wouters.

** libgnutls-xssl: Added a new library to simplify GnuTLS usage.

** libgnutls-dane: Added function to specify a DLV file.

** libgnutls: Heartbeat code was made optional.

** libgnutls: Fixes in server side of DTLS-0.9.

** libgnutls: DN variable 'T' was expanded to 'title'.

** libgnutls: Fixes in record padding parsing to prevent a timing attack. 
Issue reported by Kenny Paterson and Nadhem Alfardan.

** libgnutls: Added functions to directly set the DN in a certificate
or request from an RFC4514 string.

** libgnutls: Optimizations in the random generator. The re-seeding of
it is now explicitly done on every session deinit.

** libgnutls: Simplified the DTLS sliding window implementation.

** libgnutls: The minimum DH bits accepted by a client are now set
by the specified priority string. The current values correspond to the
previous defaults (727 bits), except for the SECURE128 and SECURE192
strings which increase the minimum to 1248 and 1776 respectively.

** libgnutls: Added the gnutls_record_cork() and uncork API to enable 
buffering in sending application data.

** libgnutls: Removed default random padding, and added a length-hiding interface 
instead.  Both the server and the client must support this extension. Whether 
length-hiding can be used on a given session can be checked using
gnutls_record_can_use_length_hiding(). Contributed by Alfredo Pironti.

** libgnutls: Added the experimental %NEW_PADDING priority string. It enables 
a new padding mechanism in TLS allowing arbitrary padding in TLS records
in all ciphersuites, which makes length-hiding more efficient and solves 
the issues with timing attacks on CBC ciphersuites.

** libgnutls: Corrected gnutls_cipher_decrypt2() when used with AEAD
ciphers (i.e., AES-GCM). Reported by William McGovern.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_db_check_entry_time: Added
gnutls_record_set_timeout: Added
gnutls_record_get_random_padding_status: Added
gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn: Added

* Version 3.1.6 (released 2013-01-02)

** libgnutls: Fixed record padding parsing issue. Reported by Kenny
Patterson and Nadhem Alfardan.

** libgnutls: Several updates in the ASN.1 string handling subsystem.

** libgnutls: gnutls_x509_crt_get_policy() allows for a list of zero
policy qualifiers.

** libgnutls: Ignore heartbeat messages when received out-of-order,
instead of issuing an error.

** libgnutls: Stricter RSA PKCS #1 1.5 encoding and decoding. Reported
by Kikuchi Masashi.

** libgnutls: TPM support is disabled by default because GPL programs
cannot link with it. Use --with-tpm to enable it.

** libgnutls-guile: Fixed parallel compilation issue.

** gnutls-cli: It will try to connect to all possible returned addresses
before failing.

** API and ABI modifications:
No changes since last version.

* Version 3.1.5 (released 2012-11-24)

** libgnutls: Added functions to parse the certificates policies

** libgnutls: Handle BMPString (UCS-2) encoding in the Distinguished
Name by translating it to UTF-8 (works on windows or systems with iconv).

** libgnutls: Added PKCS #11 key generation function that returns the 
public key on generation.

** libgnutls: Corrected bug in priority string parsing, that mostly 
affected combined levels. Patch by Tim Kosse.

** certtool: The --pubkey-info option can be combined with the
--load-privkey or --load-request to print the corresponding public keys.

** certtool: It is able to set certificate policies via a template.

** certtool: Added --hex-numbers option which prints big numbers in 
an easier to parse format.

** p11tool: After key generation, outputs the public key (useful in
tokens that do not store the public key).

** danetool: It is being built even without libgnutls-dane (the
--check functionality is disabled though).

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_generate2: Added
gnutls_x509_crt_get_policy: Added
gnutls_x509_crt_set_policy: Added
gnutls_x509_policy_release: Added
