New in NSS 22.214.171.124¶
This patch release fixes a bug and contains a backport of the TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV feature, which was originally made available in NSS 3.17.1.
TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV is a signaling cipher suite value that indicates a handshake is the result of TLS version fallback.
SSL_ENABLE_FALLBACK_SCSV - an SSL socket option that enables TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV. Off by default.
SSL_ERROR_INAPPROPRIATE_FALLBACK_ALERT - a new SSL error code.
TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV - a signaling cipher suite value that indicates a handshake is the result of TLS version fallback.
Notable Changes in NSS 126.96.36.199¶
Bug 1057161: Check that an imported elliptic curve public key is valid. Previously NSS would only validate the peer’s public key before performing ECDH key agreement. Now EC public keys are validated at import time.
Bugs fixed in NSS 188.8.131.52¶
Bug 1057161 - NSS hangs with 100% CPU on invalid EC key
Bug 1036735 - Add support for draft-ietf-tls-downgrade-scsv to NSS
NSS 184.108.40.206 shared libraries are backward compatible with all older NSS 3.x shared libraries. A program linked with older NSS 3.x shared libraries will work with NSS 220.127.116.11 shared libraries without recompiling or relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of NSS APIs to the functions listed in NSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future versions of the NSS shared libraries.
Bugs discovered should be reported by filing a bug report with bugzilla.mozilla.org (product NSS).
