Require pem2openpgp for tests only when building with MSVA support

Without OpenPGP auth support only the MSVA test needs PGP keys, so
there's no need to build them otherwise. This means people building
without MSVA support won't need to install Monkeysphere just to run
the tests.

1** Version 0.9.0 UNRELEASED
2- Security fix: Refuse to send or receive any data over a failed TLS
3  connection (commit 72b669eae8c45dda1850e8e5b30a97c918357b51). This
4  could lead to requests on reverse proxy TLS connections being sent
5  in plain text, and might allow faking requests in plain text.
6- Security fix: Reject HTTP requests if they try to access virtual
7  hosts that do not match their TLS connections (commit
8  de3fad3c12f53cdbf082ad675e4b10f521a02811). Additionally check if SNI
9  and Host header match.
10- OCSP stapling is now enabled by default, if possible. OCSP responses
11  are updated regularly and stored in a cache separate from the
12  session cache. The OCSP cache uses mod_socache_shmcb by default
13  (if the module is loaded, no other configuration required).
14- Session tickets are now enabled by default if using GnuTLS 3.6.4 or
15  newer. GnuTLS 3.6.4 introduced automatic rotation for the used key,
16  and TLS 1.3 takes care of other reasons not to use tickets while
17  requiring them for session resumption. Note that there is currently
18  no mechanism to synchronize ticket keys across a cluster of servers.
19- The internal cache implementation has been replaced with
20  mod_socache. Users may need to update their GnuTLSCache settings and
21  load the appropriate socache modules.
22- ALPN (required for HTTP/2) now works correctly with different
23  "Protocols" directives between virtual hosts if building with GnuTLS
24  3.6.3 or newer. Older versions require identical "Protocols"
25  directives for overlapping virtual hosts. Thanks to Vincent Tamet
26  for the bug report!
27- ALPN is now supported for proxy connections, making HTTP/2 proxy
28  connections using mod_proxy_http2 possible.
29- GnuTLSPriorities is optional now and defaults to "NORMAL" if
30  missing. The same applies to GnuTLSProxyPriorities (if TLS proxy is
31  enabled).
32- The manual is now built as a manual page, too, if pandoc is
33  available.
34- OpenPGP support has been removed.
35- Don't require pem2openpgp for tests when building without MSVA
36  support.
38** Version 0.8.4 (2018-04-13)
39- Support Apache HTTPD 2.4.33 API for proxy TLS connections
40- Support TLS for HTTP/2 connections with mod_http2
41- Fix configuration of OCSP stapling callback
43** Version 0.8.3 (2017-10-20)
44- Use GnuTLS' default DH parameters by default
45- Handle long Server Name Indication data and gracefully ignore
46  unknown SNI types
47- Send SNI for proxy connections
48- Deprecate OpenPGP support like GnuTLS did (will be removed
49  completely in a future release)
50- Do not announce session ticket support for proxy connections
51- Minor documentation updates (SSL_CLIENT_I_DN, reference for SNI)
52- Test suite: Simplify handling of proxy backend servers and OCSP
53  responders
54- Test suite: stability/compatibility fixes
56** Version 0.8.2 (2017-01-08)
57- Test suite: Ensure CRLF line ends in HTTP headers
58- Test suite, gen_ocsp_index.c: Handle serial as fixed order byte array
60** Version 0.8.1 (2016-12-20)
61- Bugfix: Use APR_SIZE_T_FMT for portable apr_size_t formatting
63** Version 0.8.0 (2016-12-11)
64- New: Support for OCSP stapling
65- Bugfix: Access to DBM cache is locked using global mutex
66  "gnutls-cache"
67- Bugfix: GnuTLSSessionTickets is now disabled by default as described
68  in the handbook
69- Fixed memory leak while checking proxy backend certificate
70- Fixed memory leaks in post_config
71- Safely delete session ticket key (requires GnuTLS >= 3.4)
72- Improved error handling in post_config hook
73- Various handbook updates
74- Internal API documentation can be generated using Doxygen
75- Unused code has been removed (conditionals for GnuTLS 2.x and Apache
76  versions before 2.2, internal Lua bytecode structure last used in
77  2011).
78- Test suite: Fixed locking for access to the PGP keyring of the test
79  certificate authority
80- mod_gnutls can be built using Clang (unsupported)
82** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
83- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
84  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
85  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
86  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
87- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
88  Debian package.
89- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
90  distcheck" to work
92** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
93- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
94- Increase verbosity of test logs
96** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
97- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
98  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
99- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
100  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
101  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
102- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
103  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
104  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
105- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
106  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
107  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
108- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
109  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
110  and host services.
111- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
112  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
113- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
114  available.
115- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
116  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
117- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
119** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
120- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
121  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
122  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
123  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
124  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
125  properly.
126- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
127  for proper termination of proxy connections).
128- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
129  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
130- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
131  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
132  integers and pure bash code.
134** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
135- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
136  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
137  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
138  initial patch!
139- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
140  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
141  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
142  of defense.
143- Enable C99 support via autoconf
144- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
145  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
146  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
147  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
148  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
150** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
151- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
152- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
153- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
154  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
155- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
156  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
157- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
158- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
159- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
160  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
162** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
163- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
164- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
165- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
166- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
167- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
168- wider test suite
169- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
171** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
172- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
173- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
175** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
176- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
177- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
178  terminate the connection prematurely)
179- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
180  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
181  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
182  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
184** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
185- Session tickets are enabled by default.
186- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
187  configurations.
189** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
190- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
191  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
192  SDBM seems stable so force it.
193- Optimizations in session caching.
194- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
195  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
196  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
197  session data during handshake. New option
198  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
199- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
200  renegotiation.
202** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
203- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
204  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
205- Added support for chained client certificates
206- Corrected more issues related to double frees
209** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
210- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
211  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
212- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
213  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
215** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
216- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
217  errors in darwin.
218- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
219  Knaff.
220- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
222** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
223- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
224- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
226** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
227- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
229** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
230- Added --disable-srp configure option
231- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
232- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
234** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
235- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
236  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
238** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
239- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
240- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
241- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
243** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
244- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
245Only one per certificate is supported.
246- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
248- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
249%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
250- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
251to David Hrbáč.
252- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
253- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
