File size: 15.3 KB
1** Version 0.11.0 (UNRELEASED)
3- Change default for GnuTLSOCSPCheckNonce to "off", and send OCSP
4  nonces only if it has been enabled. The reason for this change is
5  that in practice most public CAs do not support OCSP nonces, which
6  is permitted by both RFC 6960 and the CA/Browser Forum baseline
7  requirements (as of version 1.6.9). In this situation enforcing
8  correct nonces by default makes the automatic OCSP stapling support
9  mostly useless.
11- Add a test for correct nonce handling with "GnuTLSOCSPCheckNonce
12  on", thanks to Krista Karppinen for that and a rewrite of the OCSP
13  responder script in Python!
15- Support session resumption using session tickets for proxy
16  connections (TLS 1.3 connections only).
18- Disable session tickets by default. The GnuTLS built-in key rotation
19  for session tickets never actually changes the primary key, just
20  derives keys from it, so it does not provide forward secrecy in case
21  an attacker learns the primary key (by gaining access to server
22  RAM). A reload of the server is enough to generate a new key, so
23  consider enabling session tickets and reloading the server every few
24  hours, at least until a forward-secret rotation can be implemented.
26- Add ./configure option to disable building PDF documentation
28- Deprecate SRP and disable it by default.
30** Version 0.10.0 (2020-02-03)
32- Added support for stapling multiple OCSP responses (TLS 1.3
33  only). mod_gnutls will staple for as many consecutive certificates
34  in the certificate chain as possible.
36- Added support for TLS 1.3 post-handshake authentication, used if TLS
37  client authentication is required only for some resources on the
38  server. Rehandshake (for older TLS versions) is not supported, the
39  existing but broken code has been removed.
41- The test infrastructure has been mostly rewritten in Python, note
42  the new dependencies (Python 3, Pyyaml). Tests can run multiple TLS
43  connections and HTTP(S) requests as well as custom hooks now, see
44  test/ for details.
46- Server certificates are checked for the must-staple TLS feature
47  extension, stapling must be enabled if it is present.
49- Compatibility fix for GnuTLS 3.6.11 in the test suite: Handle
50  peer certificate type in TLS session information strings.
52- The test system will automatically detect if it needs to load
53  critical modules (e.g. mod_logio) that are built-in with the Debian
54  packages. This makes the tests work on Fedora without modifications,
55  and likely on similar distributions too.
57- Tests can optionally run with Valgrind for the primary HTTPD
58  instance by running ./configure with --enable-valgrind-test, see
59  test/ for details.
61- Known issue: When using MSVA client certificate validation the
62  Valgrind tests indicate memory leaks from libcurl, which is used by
63  libmsv to send requests to the MSVA. For details see the bug report:
66** Version 0.9.1 (2019-11-29)
67- Fix possible segfault (NULL pointer dereference) on failed TLS
68  handshake. Calling ssl_var_lookup() after a failed handshake could
69  lead to GnuTLS session information functions being called on a NULL
70  session pointer, leading to segfault.
71- Remove URLs from expected error responses in the test suite. Apache
72  HTTPD removed request URLs from canned error messages to prevent
73  misleading text/links being displayed via crafted links
74  (CVE-2019-10092). Adjust the expected error responses in our tests
75  so they can pass again.
76- Test suite: Ignore "Content-Length" header of responses. Thanks to
77  Krista Karppinen!
78- Add a section about module dependencies on socache to the handbook
79- Restructure the manpage build and move it to section 5 (config
80  files)
81- Test suite: Restructure certificate directories
83** Version 0.9.0 (2019-01-23)
84- Security fix: Refuse to send or receive any data over a failed TLS
85  connection (commit 72b669eae8c45dda1850e8e5b30a97c918357b51). The
86  previous behavior could lead to requests on reverse proxy TLS
87  connections being sent in plain text, and might have allowed faking
88  requests in plain text.
89- Security fix: Reject HTTP requests if they try to access virtual
90  hosts that do not match their TLS connections (commit
91  de3fad3c12f53cdbf082ad675e4b10f521a02811). Additionally check if SNI
92  and Host header match. Thanks to Krista Karppinen for contributing
93  tests!
94- OCSP stapling is now enabled by default, if possible. OCSP responses
95  are updated regularly and stored in a cache separate from the
96  session cache. The OCSP cache uses mod_socache_shmcb by default
97  (if the module is loaded, no other configuration required).
98- Session tickets are now enabled by default if using GnuTLS 3.6.4 or
99  newer. GnuTLS 3.6.4 introduced automatic rotation for the used key,
100  and TLS 1.3 takes care of other reasons not to use tickets while
101  requiring them for session resumption. Note that there is currently
102  no mechanism to synchronize ticket keys across a cluster of servers.
103- The internal cache implementation has been replaced with
104  mod_socache. Users may need to update their GnuTLSCache settings and
105  load the appropriate socache modules.
106- ALPN (required for HTTP/2) now works correctly with different
107  "Protocols" directives between virtual hosts if building with GnuTLS
108  3.6.3 or newer. Older versions require identical "Protocols"
109  directives for overlapping virtual hosts. Thanks to Vincent Tamet
110  for the bug report!
111- ALPN is now supported for proxy connections, making HTTP/2 proxy
112  connections using mod_proxy_http2 possible.
113- GnuTLSPriorities is optional now and defaults to "NORMAL" if
114  missing. The same applies to GnuTLSProxyPriorities (if TLS proxy is
115  enabled).
116- The manual is now built as a manual page, too, if pandoc is
117  available.
118- OpenPGP support has been removed.
119- Don't require pem2openpgp for tests when building without MSVA
120  support.
122** Version 0.8.4 (2018-04-13)
123- Support Apache HTTPD 2.4.33 API for proxy TLS connections
124- Support TLS for HTTP/2 connections with mod_http2
125- Fix configuration of OCSP stapling callback
127** Version 0.8.3 (2017-10-20)
128- Use GnuTLS' default DH parameters by default
129- Handle long Server Name Indication data and gracefully ignore
130  unknown SNI types
131- Send SNI for proxy connections
132- Deprecate OpenPGP support like GnuTLS did (will be removed
133  completely in a future release)
134- Do not announce session ticket support for proxy connections
135- Minor documentation updates (SSL_CLIENT_I_DN, reference for SNI)
136- Test suite: Simplify handling of proxy backend servers and OCSP
137  responders
138- Test suite: stability/compatibility fixes
140** Version 0.8.2 (2017-01-08)
141- Test suite: Ensure CRLF line ends in HTTP headers
142- Test suite, gen_ocsp_index.c: Handle serial as fixed order byte array
144** Version 0.8.1 (2016-12-20)
145- Bugfix: Use APR_SIZE_T_FMT for portable apr_size_t formatting
147** Version 0.8.0 (2016-12-11)
148- New: Support for OCSP stapling
149- Bugfix: Access to DBM cache is locked using global mutex
150  "gnutls-cache"
151- Bugfix: GnuTLSSessionTickets is now disabled by default as described
152  in the handbook
153- Fixed memory leak while checking proxy backend certificate
154- Fixed memory leaks in post_config
155- Safely delete session ticket key (requires GnuTLS >= 3.4)
156- Improved error handling in post_config hook
157- Various handbook updates
158- Internal API documentation can be generated using Doxygen
159- Unused code has been removed (conditionals for GnuTLS 2.x and Apache
160  versions before 2.2, internal Lua bytecode structure last used in
161  2011).
162- Test suite: Fixed locking for access to the PGP keyring of the test
163  certificate authority
164- mod_gnutls can be built using Clang (unsupported)
166** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
167- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
168  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
169  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
170  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
171- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
172  Debian package.
173- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
174  distcheck" to work
176** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
177- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
178- Increase verbosity of test logs
180** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
181- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
182  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
183- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
184  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
185  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
186- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
187  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
188  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
189- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
190  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
191  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
192- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
193  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
194  and host services.
195- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
196  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
197- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
198  available.
199- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
200  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
201- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
203** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
204- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
205  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
206  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
207  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
208  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
209  properly.
210- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
211  for proper termination of proxy connections).
212- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
213  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
214- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
215  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
216  integers and pure bash code.
218** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
219- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
220  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
221  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
222  initial patch!
223- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
224  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
225  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
226  of defense.
227- Enable C99 support via autoconf
228- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
229  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
230  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
231  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
232  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
234** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
235- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
236- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
237- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
238  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
239- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
240  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
241- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
242- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
243- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
244  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
246** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
247- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
248- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
249- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
250- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
251- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
252- wider test suite
253- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
255** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
256- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
257- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
259** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
260- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
261- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
262  terminate the connection prematurely)
263- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
264  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
265  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
266  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
268** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
269- Session tickets are enabled by default.
270- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
271  configurations.
273** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
274- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
275  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
276  SDBM seems stable so force it.
277- Optimizations in session caching.
278- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
279  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
280  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
281  session data during handshake. New option
282  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
283- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
284  renegotiation.
286** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
287- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
288  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
289- Added support for chained client certificates
290- Corrected more issues related to double frees
293** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
294- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
295  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
296- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
297  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
299** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
300- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
301  errors in darwin.
302- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
303  Knaff.
304- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
306** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
307- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
308- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
310** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
311- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
313** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
314- Added --disable-srp configure option
315- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
316- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
318** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
319- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
320  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
322** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
323- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
324- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
325- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
327** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
328- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
329Only one per certificate is supported.
330- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
332- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
333%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
334- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
335to David Hrbáč.
336- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
337- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
