NSS 3.25 release notes¶
The Network Security Services (NSS) team has released NSS 3.25, which is a minor release.
The hg tag is NSS_3_25_RTM. NSS 3.25 requires Netscape Portable Runtime(NSPR) 4.12 or newer.
NSS 3.25 source distributions are available on ftp.mozilla.org for secure HTTPS download at the following location.
Implemented DHE key agreement for TLS 1.3.
Added support for ChaCha with TLS 1.3.
Added support for TLS 1.2 ciphersuites that use SHA384 as the PRF.
Removed the limitation that allowed NSS to only support certificate_verify messages that used the same signature hash algorithm as the PRF when using TLS 1.2 client authentication.
Several functions have been added to the public API of the NSS Cryptoki Framework.
An SSL socket can no longer be configured to allow both TLS 1.3 and SSL v3.
Regression fix: NSS no longer reports a failure if an application attempts to disable the SSL v2 protocol.
The trusted CA certificate list has been updated to version 2.8.

This Bugzilla query returns all the bugs fixed in NSS 3.25:
NSS 3.25 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 3.25 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.
