Changes since v4.3.0:

wolfSSL Release 4.4.0 (04/22/2020)

If you have questions about this release, feel free to contact us on our
info@ address.

Release 4.4.0 of wolfSSL embedded TLS has bug fixes and new features including:
New Feature Additions

  * Hexagon support.
  * DSP builds to offload ECC verify operations.
  * Certificate Manager callback support.
  * New APIs for running updates to ChaCha20/Poly1305 AEAD.
  * Support for use with Apache.
  * Add support for IBM s390x.
  * PKCS8 support for ED25519.
  * OpenVPN support.
  * Add P384 curve support to SP.
  * Add BIO and EVP API.
  * Add AES-OFB mode.
  * Add AES-CFB mode.
  * Add Curve448, X448, and Ed448.
  * Add Renesas Synergy S7G2 build and hardware acceleration.


  * Fix for RSA public encrypt / private sign with RSA key sizes over 2048-bit.
  * Correct misspellings.
  * Secure renegotiation fix.
  * Fix memory leak when using ATECC and non-SECP256R1 curves for sign, verify,
    or shared secret.
  * Fix the RSA verify only build.
  * Fix in SP C implementation for small stack.
  * Fix using the auth key id extension is set, hash might not be present.
  * Fix when flattening certificate structure to include the subject alt names.
  * Fixes for building with ECC sign/verify only.
  * Fix for ECC and no cache resistance.
  * Fix memory leak in DSA.
  * Fix build on minGW.
  * Fix PemToDer() call in ProcessBuffer() to set more than ECC.
  * Fix for using RSA without SHA-512.
  * Add some close tags to the echoserver HTTP example output.
  * Miscellaneous fixes and updates for static analysis reports.
  * Fixes for time structure support.
  * Fixes for VxWorks support.
  * Fixes for Async crypto support.
  * Fix cache resist compile to work with SP C code.
  * Fixes for Curve25519 x64 asm.
  * Fix for SP x64 div.
  * Fix for DTLS edge case where CCS and Finished come out of order and the
    retransmit pool gets flushed.
  * Fix for infinite loop in SHA-1 with small inputs. Thanks to Peter W.
  * Fix for FIPS Hmac where wc_HmacInit() isn't used. wc_HmacSetKey() needs
    to initialize the Hmac structure. Type is set to NONE, and checked against
    NONE, not 0.
  * Fixes for SP RSA private operations.
  * Fixes for Xilinx SDK and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC
  * Fix leak when building with HAVE_AESGCM and NO_AES_DECRYPT. Thanks G.G.
  * Fixes for building ECC without ASN.
  * Fix for async TLSv1.3 issues.
  * Fix wc_KeyPemToDer() with PKCS1 and empty key.
  * Omit -fomit-frame-pointer from CFLAGS in


  * Qt 5.12 and 5.13 support.
  * Added more digest types to Cryptocell RSA sign/verify.
  * Some memory usage improvements.
  * Speed improvements for mp_rand.
  * Improvements to CRL and OCSP support.
  * Refactor Poly1305 AEAD/MAC to reduce duplicate code.
  * Add blinding to RSA key gen.
  * Improvements to blinding.
  * Improvement and expansion of OpenSSL Compatibility Layer.
  * Improvements to ChaCha20.
  * Improvements to X.509 processing.
  * Improvements to ECC support.
  * Improvement in detecting 64-bit support.
  * Refactor to combine duplicate ECC parameter parsing code.
  * Improve keyFormat to be set by algId and let later key parsing produce fail.
  * Add test cases for 3072-bit and 4096-bit RSA keys.
  * Improve signature wrapper and DH test cases.
  * Improvements to the script.
  * Added constant time RSA q modinv p.
  * Improve performance of SP Intel 64-bit asm.
  * Added a few more functions to the ABI list.
  * Improve TLS bidirectional shutdown behavior.
  * OpenSSH 8.1 support.
  * Improve performance of RSA/DH operations on x64.
  * Add support for PKCS7/CMS Enveloped data with fragmented encrypted content.
  * Example linker description for FIPS builds to enforce object ordering.
  * C# wrapper improvements. Added TLS client example and TLSv1.3 methods.
  * Allow setting MTU in DTLS.
  * Improve PKCS12 create for outputting encrypted bundles.
  * Constant time EC map to affine for private operations.
  * Improve performance of RSA public key ops with TFM.
  * Smaller table version of AES encrypt/decrypt.
  * Support IAR with position independent code (ROPI).
  * Improve speed of AArch64 assembly.
  * Support AES-CTR with AES-NI.
  * Support AES-CTR on esp32.
  * Add a no malloc option for small SP math.

This release of wolfSSL includes fixes for 2 security vulnerabilities.

  * For fast math, use a constant time modular inverse when mapping to affine
    when operation involves a private key - keygen, calc shared secret, sign.
    Thank you to Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya, Cesar Pereida GarcĂ­a and
    Billy Bob Brumley from the Network and Information Security Group (NISEC)
    at Tampere University for the report.

  * Change constant time and cache resistant ECC mulmod. Ensure points being
    operated on change to make constant time. Thank you to Pietro Borrello at
    Sapienza University of Rome.
