./security/stunnel, Universal SSL tunnel

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.20, Package name: stunnel-5.20, Maintainer: jym

The stunnel program is designed to work as SSL encryption wrapper
between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server.
The concept is that having non-SSL aware daemons running on your
system you can easily setup them to communicate with clients over
secure SSL channel.

stunnel can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd
daemons like POP-2, POP-3 and IMAP servers without any changes in
the program code.

Required to run:

Package options: inet6, tcpwrappers, threads

Update to 5.20

Version 5.20, 2015.07.09, urgency: HIGH
* Security bugfixes
  - OpenSSL DLLs updated to version 1.0.2d.
* New features
  - poll(2) re-enabled on MacOS X 10.5 and later.
  - Xcode SDK is automatically used on MacOS X if no other
    locally installed OpenSSL directory is found.
  - The SSL library detection algorithm was made a bit smarter.
  - Warnings about insecure authentication were modified to
    include the name of the affected service section.
  - A warning was added to stunnel.init if no pid file was
    specified in the configuration file (thx to Peter Pentchev).
  - Optional debugging symbols are included in the Win32 installer.
  - Documentation updates (closes Debian bug #781669).
* Bugfixes
  - Signal pipe reinitialization added to prevent turning the
    main accepting thread into a busy wait loop when an external
    condition breaks the signal pipe.  This bug was found to
    surface on Win32, but other platforms may also be affected.
  - Fixed removing the disabled taskbar icon.
  - Generated temporary DH parameters are used for configuration
    reload instead of the static defaults.
  - LSB compatibility fixes added to the stunnel.init script (thx
    to Peter Pentchev).
  - Fixed the manual page headers (thx to Gleydson Soares).

Version 5.19, 2015.06.16, urgency: MEDIUM:
* New features
  - OpenSSL DLLs updated to version 1.0.2c.
  - Added a runtime check whether COMP_zlib() method is implemented
    in order to improve compatibility with the Debian OpenSSL build.
* Bugfixes
  - Improved socket error handling.
  - Cron thread priority on Win32 platform changed to
    THREAD_PRIORITY_LOWEST to improve portability.
  - Makefile bugfixes for stunnel 5.18 regressions.
  - Fixed some typos in docs and scripts (thx to Peter Pentchev).
  - Fixed a log level check condition (thx to Peter Pentchev).

Version 5.18, 2015.06.12, urgency: MEDIUM:
* New features
  - OpenSSL DLLs updated to version 1.0.2b.
  - Added "include" configuration file option to include all
    configuration file parts located in a specified directory.
  - Log file is reopened every 24 hours.  With "log = overwrite"
    this feature can be used to prevent filling up disk space.
  - Temporary DH parameters are refreshed every 24 hours, unless
    static DH parameters were provided in the certificate file.
  - Unique initial DH parameters are distributed with each release.
  - Warnings are logged on potentially insecure authentication.
  - Improved compatibility with the current OpenSSL 1.1.0-dev tree:
    removed RLE compression support, etc.
  - Updated stunnel.spec (thx to Bill Quayle).
* Bugfixes
  - Fixed handling of dynamic connect targets.
  - Fixed handling of trailing whitespaces in the Content-Length
    header of the NTLM authentication.
  - Fixed --sysconfdir and --localstatedir handling (thx to
    Dagobert Michelsen).

Update to 5.07. From the changelog:

* New features
  - Several SMTP server protocol negotiation improvements.
  - Added UTF-8 byte order marks to stunnel.conf templates.
  - DH parameters are no longer generated by "make cert".
    The hardcoded DH parameters are sufficiently secure,
    and modern TLS implementations will use ECDH anyway.
  - Updated manual for the "options" configuration file option.
  - Added support for systemd 209 or later.
  - New --disable-systemd ./configure option.
  - setuid/setgid commented out in stunnel.conf-sample.

    with modern Microsoft compilers.

Version 5.06, 2014.10.15, urgency: HIGH:
* Security bugfixes
  - OpenSSL DLLs updated to version 1.0.1j.

    It can be enabled with "options = -NO_SSLv2".
  - The insecure SSLv3 protocol is now disabled by default.
    It can be enabled with "options = -NO_SSLv3".
  - Default sslVersion changed to "all" (also in FIPS mode)
    to autonegotiate the highest supported TLS version.
* New features
  - Added missing SSL options to match OpenSSL 1.0.1j.
  - New "-options" commandline option to display the list
    of supported SSL options.
* Bugfixes

    to clear an SSL option, for example:
    "options = -LEGACY_SERVER_CONNECT".

    Vadim Penzin).
* Bugfixes
  - Fixed POLLIN|POLLHUP condition handling error resulting
    in prematurely closed (truncated) connection.
  - Fixed a null pointer dereference regression bug in the
    "transparent = destination" functionality (thx to
    Vadim Penzin). This bug was introduced in stunnel 5.00.
  - Fixed startup thread synchronization with Win32 GUI.
  - Fixed erroneously closed stdin/stdout/stderr if specified
    as the -fd commandline option parameter.
  - A number of minor Win32 GUI bugfixes and improvements.
  - Merged most of the Windows CE patches (thx to Pierre Delaage).
  - Fixed incorrect CreateService() error message on Win32.
  - Implemented a workaround for defective Cygwin file
    descriptor passing breaking the libwrap support:

  - TCP/IP dependency added for NT service in order to prevent
    initialization failure at boot time.
  - FIPS canister updated to version 2.0.8 in the Win32 binary
* Bugfixes
  - load_icon_default() modified to return copies of default icons
    instead of the original resources to prevent the resources

Bump for perl-5.20.0.
Do it for all packages that

* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.
