New in NSS 3.34

New Functionality

  • When listing an NSS database. using certutil -L, and the database hasn’t yet been initialized with any non-empty or empty password, the text “Database needs user init” will be included in the listing.

  • When using certutil, to set an inacceptable password in FIPS mode, a correct explanation of acceptable passwords will be printed.

  • SSLKEYLOGFILE is now supported with TLS 1.3, see Bug 1287711 for details.

  • SSLChannelInfo has two new fields (Bug 1396525)

    • SSLNamedGroup originalKeaGroup holds the key exchange group of the original handshake, when the session was resumed.

    • PRBool resumed is PR_TRUE when the session is resumed, and PR_FALSE otherwise.

  • RSA-PSS signatures are now supported on certificates. Certificates with RSA-PSS or RSA-PKCS#1v1.5 keys can be used to create an RSA-PSS signature on a certificate, using the --pss-sign argument to certutil.

New Functions


NSS 3.34 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 3.34 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.
