Mon Mar 14 10:49:46 UTC 2011 -

- Applied git patch fixing memory cleanup if no DHCP transaction
  were found for an OFFER. Causes charon to kill itself and be
  restarted by ipsec starter (bnc#679170).

Mon Nov 22 09:05:30 UTC 2010 -

- Cleaned up spec file; use with_mysql,sqlite,gcrypt,nm flags
- Disabled tests sub-package with load-tester and test-vectors
  plugins by default using a with_tests flag (causes load error
  in "ipsec pki" when enabled but the package is not installed).

Tue Nov 16 12:01:46 UTC 2010 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.5.0 release, changes since 4.4.1 are:
  * IMPORTANT: the default keyexchange mode 'ike' is changing with
  release 4.5 from 'ikev1' to 'ikev2', thus commemorating the five
  year anniversary of the IKEv2 RFC 4306 and its mature successor
  RFC 5996. The time has definitively come for IKEv1 to go into
  retirement and to cede its place to the much more robust, powerful
  and versatile IKEv2 protocol!
  * Added new ctr, ccm and gcm plugins providing Counter, Counter
  with CBC-MAC and Galois/Counter Modes based on existing CBC
  implementations. These new plugins bring support for AES and
  Camellia Counter and CCM algorithms and the AES GCM algorithms
  for use in IKEv2.
  * The new pkcs11 plugin brings full Smartcard support to the IKEv2
  daemon and the pki utility using one or more PKCS#11 libraries. It
  currently supports RSA private and public key operations and loads
  X.509 certificates from tokens.
  * Implemented a general purpose TLS stack based on crypto and
  credential primitives of libstrongswan. libtls supports TLS
  versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2, ECDHE-ECDSA/RSA, DHE-RSA and RSA key
  exchange algorithms and RSA/ECDSA based client authentication.
  * Based on libtls, the eap-tls plugin brings certificate based EAP
  authentication for client and server. It is compatible to Windows
  7 IKEv2 Smartcard authentication and the OpenSSL based FreeRADIUS
  EAP-TLS backend.
  * Implemented the TNCCS 1.1 Trusted Network Connect protocol using
  the libtnc library on the strongSwan client and server side via
  the tnccs_11 plugin and optionally connecting to a TNC@FHH-enhanced
  FreeRADIUS AAA server. Depending on the resulting TNC Recommendation,
  strongSwan clients are granted access to a network behind a
  strongSwan gateway (allow), are put into a remediation zone (isolate)
  or are blocked (none), respectively.
  Any number of Integrity Measurement Collector/Verifier pairs can be
  attached via the tnc-imc and tnc-imv charon plugins.
  * The IKEv1 daemon pluto now uses the same kernel interfaces as the
  IKEv2 daemon charon. As a result of this, pluto now supports xfrm
  marks which were introduced in charon with 4.4.1.
  * The RADIUS plugin eap-radius now supports multiple RADIUS servers
  for redundant setups. Servers are selected by a defined priority,
  server load and availability.
  * The simple led plugin controls hardware LEDs through the Linux LED
  subsystem. It currently shows activity of the IKE daemon and is a
  good example how to implement a simple event listener.
  * Improved MOBIKE behavior in several corner cases, for instance,
  if the initial responder moves to a different address.
  * Fixed left-/rightnexthop option, which was broken since 4.4.0.
  * Fixed a bug not releasing a virtual IP address to a pool if the
  XAUTH identity was different from the IKE identity.
  * Fixed the alignment of ModeConfig messages on 4-byte boundaries
  in the case where the attributes are not a multiple of 4 bytes
  (e.g. Cisco's UNITY_BANNER).
  * Fixed the interoperability of the socket_raw and socket_default
  charon plugins.
  * Added man page for strongswan.conf
- Adopted spec file, removed obsolete error range patch.

Tue Aug 10 11:43:38 UTC 2010 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.4.1 release, changes since 4.4.0 are:
  * Support of xfrm marks in IPsec SAs and IPsec policies introduced
    with the Linux 2.6.34 kernel.
    For details see the example scenarios ikev2/nat-two-rw-mark,
    ikev2/rw-nat-mark-in-out and ikev2/net2net-psk-dscp.
  * The PLUTO_MARK_IN and PLUTO_ESP_ENC environment variables can be
    used in a user-specific updown script to set marks on inbound ESP
    or ESP_IN_UDP packets.
  * The openssl plugin now supports X.509 certificate and CRL functions.
  * OCSP/CRL checking in IKEv2 has been moved to the revocation plugin,
    enabled by default.
    Plase update manual load directives in strongswan.conf.
  * RFC3779 ipAddrBlock constraint checking has been moved to the
    addrblock plugin, disabled by default. Enable it and update manual
    load directives in strongswan.conf, if required.
  * The pki utility supports CRL generation using the --signcrl command.
  * The ipsec pki --self, --issue and --req commands now support output
    in PEM format using the --outform pem option.
  * The major refactoring of the IKEv1 Mode Config functionality now
    allows the transport and handling of any Mode Config attribute.
  * The RADIUS proxy plugin eap-radius now supports multiple servers.
    Configured servers are chosen randomly, with the option to prefer
    a specific server.  Non-responding servers are degraded by the
    selection process.
  * The ipsec pool tool manages arbitrary configuration attributes
    stored in an SQL database. ipsec pool --help gives the details.
  * The new eap-simaka-sql plugin acts as a backend for EAP-SIM and
    EAP-AKA, reading triplets/quintuplets from an SQL database.
  * The High Availability plugin now supports a HA enabled in-memory
    address pool and Node reintegration without IKE_SA rekeying. The
    latter allows clients without IKE_SA rekeying support to keep
    connected during reintegration. Additionally, many other issues
    have been fixed in the ha plugin.
  * Fixed a potential remote code execution vulnerability resulting
    from the misuse of snprintf(). The vulnerability is exploitable
    by unauthenticated users.
- Removed obsolete snprintf security fix, adopted spec file
- Enabled the eap-sim,eap-sim-file,eap-simaka-sql,eap-simaka-reauth,
  eap-simaka-pseudonym,eap-aka-3gpp2,md4,blowfish,addrblock plugins.
- Enabled the mysql, sqlite, load-tester and test-vectors plugins,
  that are packaged into separate mysql,sqlite,tests sub packages.
- Disabled sqlite plugin on SLE-10 -- sqlite3 lib is too old there.
- Applied patch by Jiri Bohac fixing error-type range in parsing of
  NOTIFY payloads (RFC 4306, section 3.10.1).

Fri Jul  2 15:40:17 UTC 2010 -

- Applied upstream patch fixing snprintf flaws in the strongSwan
  IKE daemons exploitable by unauthenticated attackers using a
  crafted certificate or identification payload (bnc#615915).

Fri Jul  2 14:16:18 UTC 2010 -

- Added README.SUSE to source list in the spec file.

Fri May 14 19:19:04 UTC 2010 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.4.0 release, changes since 4.3.6 are:
  * The IKEv2 High Availability plugin has been integrated. It
  provides load sharing and failover capabilities in a cluster of
  currently two nodes, based on an extend ClusterIP kernel module.
  More information is available at
  The development of the High Availability functionality was sponsored
  by secunet Security Networks AG.
  * Added IKEv1 and IKEv2 configuration support for the AES-GMAC
  authentication-only ESP cipher. Our aes_gmac kernel patch or a Linux
  2.6.34 kernel is required to make AES-GMAC available via the XFRM
  kernel interface.
  * Added support for Diffie-Hellman groups 22, 23 and 24 to the gmp,
  gcrypt and openssl plugins, usable by both pluto and charon. The new
  proposal keywords are modp1024s160, modp2048s224 and modp2048s256.
  Thanks to Joy Latten from IBM for her contribution.
  * The IKEv1 pluto daemon supports RAM-based virtual IP pools using
  the rightsourceip directive with a subnet from which addresses
  are allocated.
  * The ipsec pki --gen and --pub commands now allow the output of
  private and public keys in PEM format using the --outform pem
  command line option.
  * The new DHCP plugin queries virtual IP addresses for clients from
  a DHCP server using broadcasts, or a defined server using the
  charon.plugins.dhcp.server strongswan.conf option. DNS/WINS server
  information is additionally served to clients if the DHCP server
  provides such information. The plugin is used in ipsec.conf
  configurations having rightsourceip set to %dhcp.
  * A new plugin called farp fakes ARP responses for virtual IP
  addresses handed out to clients from the IKEv2 daemon charon. The
  plugin lets a road-warrior act as a client on the local LAN if it
  uses a virtual IP from the responders subnet, e.g. acquired using
  the DHCP plugin.
  * The existing IKEv2 socket implementations have been migrated to
  the socket-default and the socket-raw plugins.  The new
  socket-dynamic plugin binds sockets dynamically to ports configured
  via the left-/rightikeport ipsec.conf connection parameters.
  * The android charon plugin stores received DNS server information
  as "net.dns" system properties, as used by the Android platform.
- Splitted package into strongswan-ipsec, that install the traditional
  ipsec service starter scripts, -ikev1 and -ikev2 installing daemons
  and -libs0, that contains the library and plugins.
- Enabled dhcp, farp, ha, socket-dynamic, agent, eap and sql plugins.
- Enabled NetworkManager nm plugin in a separate strongswan-nm package.

Tue Mar  2 21:42:10 CET 2010 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.3.6 release, changes since 4.3.4 are:
  * The IKEv2 daemon supports RFC 3779 IP address block constraints
  carried as a critical X.509v3 extension in the peer certificate.
  * The ipsec pool --add|del dns|nbns command manages DNS and NBNS
  name server entries that are sent via the IKEv1 Mode Config or
  IKEv2 Configuration Payload to remote clients.
  * The Camellia cipher can be used as an IKEv1 encryption algorithm.
  * The IKEv1 and IKEV2 daemons now check certificate path length
  * The new ipsec.conf conn option "inactivity" closes a CHILD_SA if
  no traffic was sent or received within the given interval. To close
  the complete IKE_SA if its only CHILD_SA was inactive, set the
  global strongswan.conf option "charon.inactivity_close_ike" to yes.
  * More detailed IKEv2 EAP payload information in debug output
  * IKEv2 EAP-SIM and EAP-AKA share joint libsimaka library
  * Added required userland changes for proper SHA256 and SHA384/512
  in ESP that will be introduced with Linux 2.6.33.
  The "sha256"/"sha2_256" keyword now configures the kernel with 128
  bit truncation, not the non-standard 96 bit truncation used by
  previous releases. To use the old 96 bit truncation scheme, the new
  "sha256_96" proposal keyword has been introduced.
  * Fixed IPComp in tunnel mode, stripping out the duplicated outer
  header. This change makes IPcomp tunnel mode connections
  incompatible with previous releases; disable compression on such
  * Fixed BEET mode connections on recent kernels by installing SAs
  with appropriate traffic selectors, based on a patch by Michael
  * Using extensions (such as BEET mode) and crypto algorithms (such
  as twofish, serpent, sha256_96) allocated in the private use space
  now require that we know its meaning, i.e. we are talking to
  strongSwan. Use the new "charon.send_vendor_id" option in
  strongswan.conf to let the remote peer know this is the case.
  * Experimental support for draft-eronen-ipsec-ikev2-eap-auth, where
  the responder omits public key authentication in favor of a mutual
  authentication method. To enable EAP-only authentication, set
  rightauth=eap on the responder to rely only on the MSK constructed
  AUTH payload. This not-yet standardized extension requires the
  strongSwan vendor ID introduced above.
  * The IKEv1 daemon ignores the Juniper SRX notification type 40001,
  thus allowing interoperability.
  * The IKEv1 pluto daemon can now use SQL-based address pools to
  deal out virtual IP addresses as a Mode Config server. The pool
  capability has been migrated from charon's sql plugin to a new
  attr-sql plugin which is loaded by libstrongswan and which can be
  used by both daemons either with a SQLite or MySQL database and the
  corresponding plugin.
  * Plugin names have been streamlined: EAP plugins now have a dash
  after eap (e.g. eap-sim), as it is used with the --enable-eap-sim
  ./configure option.
  Plugin configuration sections in strongswan.conf now use the same
  name as the plugin itself (i.e. with a dash). Make sure to update
  "load" directives and the affected plugin sections in existing
  strongswan.conf files.
  * The private/public key parsing and encoding has been split up
  into separate pkcs1, pgp, pem and dnskey plugins. The public key
  implementation plugins gmp, gcrypt and openssl can all make use
  of them.
  * The EAP-AKA plugin can use different backends for USIM/quintuplet
  calculations, very similar to the EAP-SIM plugin. The existing 3GPP2
  software implementation has been migrated to a separate plugin.
  * The IKEv2 daemon charon gained basic PGP support. It can use
  locally installed peer certificates and can issue signatures based
  on RSA private keys.
  * The new 'ipsec pki' tool provides a set of commands to maintain a
  public key infrastructure. It currently supports operations to
  create RSA and ECDSA private/public keys, calculate fingerprints and
  issue or verify certificates.
  * Charon uses a monotonic time source for statistics and job
  queueing, behaving correctly if the system time changes (e.g. when
  using NTP).
  * In addition to time based rekeying, charon supports IPsec SA
  lifetimes based on processed volume or number of packets.
  They new ipsec.conf paramaters 'lifetime' (an alias to 'keylife'),
  'lifebytes' and 'lifepackets' handle SA timeouts, while the
  parameters 'margintime' (an alias to rekeymargin), 'marginbytes'
  and 'marginpackets' trigger the rekeying before a SA expires.
  The existing parameter 'rekeyfuzz' affects all margins.
  * If no CA/Gateway certificate is specified in the NetworkManager
  plugin, charon uses a set of trusted root certificates preinstalled
  by distributions. The directory containing CA certificates can be
  specified using the --with-nm-ca-dir=path configure option.
  * Fixed the encoding of the Email relative distinguished name in
  left|rightid statements.
  * Fixed the broken parsing of PKCS#7 wrapped certificates by the
  pluto daemon.
  * Fixed smartcard-based authentication in the pluto daemon which
  was broken by the ECDSA support introduced with the 4.3.2 release.
  * A patch contributed by Heiko Hund fixes mixed IPv6 in IPv4 and
  vice versa tunnels established with the IKEv1 pluto daemon.
  * The pluto daemon now uses the libstrongswan x509 plugin for
  certificates and CRls and the struct id type was replaced by
  identification_t used by charon and the libstrongswan library.
- Removed obsolete load_secrets patches, refreshed modprobe patch.
- Corrected a time_t cast reported by rpmlint (timer.c:51)
- Disabled libtoolize call and the gcrypt plugin on SLE 10.

Fri Sep  4 12:56:59 CEST 2009 -

- Fixed open failure debug message in load_secrets

Thu Sep  3 23:44:37 CEST 2009 -

- Applied patch fixing locking in ipsec.secrets inclusion.

Mon Aug 31 16:06:13 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.3.4 release:
  * IKEv2 charon daemon ported to FreeBSD and Mac OS X. Installation
    details can be found on
  * ipsec statusall shows the number of bytes transmitted and received
    over ESP connections configured by the IKEv2 charon daemon.
  * The IKEv2 charon daemon supports include files in ipsec.secrets.
- Removed obsolete ipsec.secrets include patch (bnc#524799)
  and patch to avoid libchecksum version.

Fri Aug  7 11:44:30 CEST 2009 -

- Applied patch implementing ipsec.secrets "include" directive
  support in charon (,

Mon Jul 27 13:40:57 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.3.3 release:
  * The configuration option --enable-integrity-test plus the
  strongswan.conf option libstrongswan.integrity_test = yes
  activate integrity tests of the IKE daemons charon and pluto,
  libstrongswan and all loaded plugins. Thus dynamic library
  misconfigurations and non-malicious file manipulations can be
  reliably detected.
  * The new default setting libstrongswan.ecp_x_coordinate_only=yes
  allows IKEv1 interoperability with MS Windows using the ECP DH
  groups 19 and 20.
  * The IKEv1 pluto daemon now supports the AES-CCM and AES-GCM ESP
  authenticated encryption algorithms.
  * The IKEv1 pluto daemon now supports V4 OpenPGP keys.
  * The RDN parser vulnerability discovered by Orange Labs research
  team was not completely fixed in version 4.3.2. Some more
  modifications had to be applied to the asn1_length() function to
  make it robust.
- Enabled --enable-integrity-test configure option (new feature).
- Removed patch to avoid plugin versions (accepted by upstream)
  and added patch to avoid version for new libchecksum library.
- Added -Wno-pointer-sign -Wno-strict-aliasing CFLAGS in the spec.

Wed Jun 10 11:04:44 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.3.2 release, that fixes two asn1 parser
  DoS vulnerabilities and provides several new features, e.g.:
  * The new gcrypt plugin provides symmetric cipher, hasher, RNG,
  Diffie-Hellman and RSA crypto primitives using the LGPL licensed
  GNU gcrypt library.
  * libstrongswan features an integrated crypto selftest framework
  for registered algorithms. The test-vector plugin provides a first
  set of test vectors and allows pluto and charon to rely on tested
  crypto algorithms.
  * pluto can now use all libstrongswan plugins with the exception
  of x509 and xcbc. Thanks to the openssl plugin, the ECP Diffie-
  Hellman groups 19, 20, 21, 25, and 26 as well as ECDSA-256,
  ECDSA-384, and ECDSA-521 authentication can be used with IKEv1.
  * Applying their fuzzing tool, the Orange Labs vulnerability
  research team found another two DoS vulnerabilities, one in the
  rather old ASN.1 parser of Relative Distinguished Names (RDNs)
  and a second one in the conversion of ASN.1 UTCTIME and
  GENERALIZEDTIME strings to a time_t value.
  * The nm plugin now passes DNS/NBNS server information to
  NetworkManager, allowing a gateway administrator to set DNS/NBNS
  configuration on clients dynamically.
  * The nm plugin also accepts CA certificates for gateway
  authentication. If a CA certificate is configured, strongSwan uses
  the entered gateway address as its idenitity, requiring the gateways
  certificate to contain the same as subjectAltName.
  This allows a gateway administrator to deploy the same
  certificates to Windows 7 and NetworkManager clients.
  * The command ipsec purgeike deletes IKEv2 SAs that don't have a
  The command ipsec down <conn>{n} deletes CHILD SA instance n of
  connection <conn> whereas ipsec down <conn>{*} deletes all CHILD
  SA instances.
  The command ipsec down <conn>[n] deletes IKE SA instance n of
  connection <conn> plus dependent CHILD SAs whereas ipsec down
  <conn>[*] deletes all IKE SA instances of connection <conn>.
  * Fixed a regression introduced in 4.3.0 where EAP authentication
  calculated the AUTH payload incorrectly. Further, the EAP-MSCHAPv2
  MSK key derivation has been updated to be compatible with the
  Windows 7 Release Candidate.
  * Refactored installation of triggering policies. Routed policies
  are handled outside of IKE_SAs to keep them installed in any case.
  A tunnel gets established only once, even if initiation is delayed
  due network outages.
  * Improved the handling of multiple acquire signals triggered by
  the kernel.
  * Fixed two DoS vulnerabilities in the charon daemon that were
  discovered by fuzzing techniques:
  1) Sending a malformed IKE_SA_INIT request leaved an incomplete
  state which caused a null pointer dereference if a subsequent
  CREATE_CHILD_SA request was sent.
  2) Sending an IKE_AUTH request with either a missing TSi or TSr
  payload caused a null pointer derefence because the checks for
  TSi and TSr were interchanged.
  The IKEv2 fuzzer used was developped by the Orange Labs
  vulnerability research team.  The tool was initially written
  by Gabriel Campana and is now maintained by Laurent Butti.
  * Added support for AES counter mode in ESP in IKEv2 using the
  proposal keywords aes128ctr, aes192ctr and aes256ctr.
  * Further progress in refactoring pluto: Use of the curl and ldap
  plugins for fetching crls and OCSP. Use of the random plugin to
  get keying material from /dev/random or /dev/urandom. Use of the
  openssl plugin as an alternative to the aes, des, sha1, sha2, and
  md5 plugins. The blowfish, twofish, and serpent encryption plugins
  are now optional and are not enabled by default.
- Enabled new gcrypt plugin
- Adopted spec file and modprobe to syslog patch
- Removed obsolete getline glibc collision patch
- Added patch to avoid library version for plugins (rpmlint).
- Replaced update-dns-server patch with a --with-resolv-conf.
- Removed restart_on_update from spec file (see bnc#450390).

Mon Jun  8 00:21:13 CEST 2009 -

- rename getline to my_getline to avoid collision with function
  from glibc 

Tue Jun  2 09:56:16 CEST 2009 -

- Applied fix for a Denial-of-Service vulnerability where receiving
  a malformed IKE_SA_INIT request leaves an incomplete state which
  causes a crash of the IKEv2 charon while dereferencing a NULL
  pointer if a subsequent CREATE_CHILD_SA is received (bnc#507742).
- Applied fix for a Denial-of-Service vulnerability where receiving
  a malformed IKE_AUTH request with either a missing TSi or TSr
  traffic selector payload causes a crash of the IKEv2 charon while
  dereferencing a NULL pointer because the NULL pointer checks of
  TSi and TSr before destruction were erroneously swapped

Tue Mar 31 11:19:03 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.2.14 release that fixes a grave DPD
  denial of service vulnerability registered as CVE-2009-0790,
  that had been slumbering in the code for many years:
  * A vulnerability in the Dead Peer Detection (RFC 3706) code
    was found by Gerd v. Egidy <> of
    Intra2net AG affecting all Openswan and strongSwan releases.
    A malicious (or expired ISAKMP) R_U_THERE or R_U_THERE_ACK
    Dead Peer Detection packet can cause the pluto IKE daemon to
    crash and restart. No authentication or encryption is required
    to trigger this bug. One spoofed UDP packet can cause the pluto
    IKE daemon to restart and be unresponsive for a few seconds
    while restarting. This DPD null state vulnerability has been
    officially registered as CVE-2009-0790 and is fixed by this
  * The new server-side EAP RADIUS plugin (--enable-eap-radius)
    relays EAP messages to and from a RADIUS server. Succesfully
    tested with with a freeradius server using EAP-MD5 and EAP-SIM.
  * ASN.1 to time_t conversion caused a time wrap-around for dates
    after Jan 18 03:14:07 UTC 2038 on 32-bit platforms.
    As a workaround such dates are set to the maximum representable
    time, i.e. Jan 19 03:14:07 UTC 2038.
  * Distinguished Names containing wildcards (*) are not sent in the
    IDr payload anymore. 

Mon Oct 20 09:27:06 CEST 2008 -

- Updated to 4.2.8 release:
  * IKEv2 charon daemon supports authentication based on raw public
  keys stored in the SQL database backend. The ipsec listpubkeys
  command lists the available raw public keys via the stroke
  * Several MOBIKE improvements: Detect changes in NAT mappings in
  DPD exchanges, handle events if kernel detects NAT mapping changes
  in UDP-encapsulated ESP packets (requires kernel patch), reuse old
  addesses in MOBIKE updates as long as possible and other fixes.
  * Fixed a bug in addr_in_subnet() which caused insertion of wrong
  source routes for destination subnets having netwmasks not being a
  multiple of 8 bits.  Thanks go to Wolfgang Steudel, TU Ilmenau for
  reporting this bug.

Tue Oct 14 16:29:59 CEST 2008 -

- Applied fix for addr_in_subnet() extracted from strongswan-4.2.8
  which caused insertion of wrong source routes for destination
  subnets having netwmasks not being a multiple of 8 bits.
  Thanks go to Wolfgang Steudel, TU Ilmenau for reporting this bug.

Fri Oct 10 08:08:35 CEST 2008 -

- Applied fix for a Denial-of-Service vulnerability where an
  IKE_SA_INIT message with a KE payload containing zeroes only can
  cause a crash of the IKEv2 charon daemon due to a NULL pointer
  returned by the mpz_export() function of the GNU Multi Precision
  (GMP) library. Thanks go to Mu Dynamics Research Labs for making
  us aware of this problem. (bnc#435194)

Thu Aug 28 14:31:49 CEST 2008 -

- Fixed to use --enable-curl instead of --enable-http as before
- Enabled the OpenSSL crypto plugin in the spec file.

Thu Aug 28 09:48:14 CEST 2008 -

- Updated to 4.2.6 release, fixing bugs and offering a lot of new
  features comparing to the last version provided by this package.
  Most important are:
  * A NetworkManager plugin allows GUI-based configuration of
  road-warrior clients in a simple way. It features X509 based
  gateway authentication and EAP client authentication, tunnel
  setup/teardown and storing passwords in the Gnome Keyring.
  * A new EAP-GTC plugin implements draft-sheffer-ikev2-gtc-00.txt
  and allows username/password authentication against any PAM
  service on the gateway. The new EAP method interacts nicely with
  the NetworkManager plugin and allows client authentication against
  e.g. LDAP.
  * Improved support for the EAP-Identity method. The new ipsec.conf
  eap_identity parameter defines an additional identity to pass to
  the server in EAP authentication.
  * Fixed two multithreading deadlocks occurring when starting up
  several hundred tunnels concurrently.
  * Fixed the --enable-integrity-test configure option which
  computes a SHA-1 checksum over the libstrongswan library.
  * Consistent logging of IKE and CHILD SAs at the audit (AUD) level. 
  * Improved the performance of the SQL-based virtual IP address pool
  by introducing an additional addresses table. The leases table
  storing only history information has become optional and can be
  disabled by setting charon.plugins.sql.lease_history = no in
  * The XFRM_STATE_AF_UNSPEC flag added to xfrm.h allows IPv4-over-IPv6
  and IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnels with the 2.6.26 and later Linux kernels.
  * management of different virtual IP pools for different network
  interfaces have become possible.
  * fixed a bug which prevented the assignment of more than 256
  virtual IP addresses from a pool managed by an sql database.
  * fixed a bug which did not delete own IPCOMP SAs in the kernel.
  * The openssl plugin supports the elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman
  groups 19, 20, 21, 25, and 26 and ECDSA authentication using
  elliptic curve X.509 certificates.
  * Fixed a bug in stroke which caused multiple charon threads to
  close the file descriptors during packet transfers over the stroke
  * ESP sequence numbers are now migrated in IPsec SA updates handled
  by MOBIKE. Works only with Linux kernels >= 2.6.17.
  * Fixed a number of minor bugs that where discovered during the 4th
  IKEv2 interoperability workshop in San Antonio, TX.
  * Plugins for libstrongswan and charon can optionally be loaded
  according to a configuration in strongswan.conf. Most components
  provide a "load = " option followed by a space separated list of
  plugins to load. This allows e.g. the fallback from a hardware
  crypto accelerator to to software-based crypto plugins.
  * Charons SQL plugin has been extended by a virtual IP address pool.
  Configurations with a rightsourceip=%poolname setting query a
  SQLite or MySQL database for leases. The "ipsec pool" command helps
  in administrating the pool database. See ipsec pool --help for the
  available options
  * The Authenticated Encryption Algorithms AES-CCM-8/12/16 and
  AES-GCM-8/12/16 for ESP are now supported starting with the Linux
  2.6.25 kernel. The syntax is e.g. esp=aes128ccm12 or esp=aes256gcm16.
- Added patch disabling direct modifications of resolv.conf; has to
  be replaced by a netconfig call.
- Added patch adding a missed file name argument in printf call in the
  scripts/thread_analysis.c file -- resulting binary is not installed.
- Removed obsolete patches crash_badcfg_reload and old-caps-version.

- Added fix that explicitly enables version 1 linux capabilities
  on version 2 systems to aviod that the charon and pluto daemons
  exit because of failed capset call (bnc#404989).

Mon May 19 16:17:16 CEST 2008 -

- Applied fix (strongswan_crash_badcfg_reload.dif) to avoid
  a crash after reloading with bad config (bnc#392062).

- Updated to 4.2.1 release. A lot of code refactoring in the 4.2
  release provides much more modularity and therefore much more
  extensiblity and offers the following new features:
  * libstrongswan has been modularized to attach crypto algorithms,
  credential implementations (secret and private keys, certificates)
  and http/ldap fetchers dynamically through plugins.
  * A relational database API that uses pluggable database providers
  was added to libstrongswan including plugins for MySQL and SQLite.
  * The IKEv2 keying charon daemon has become more extensible. Generic
  plugins can provide arbitrary interfaces to credential stores and
  connection management interfaces. Also any EAP method can be added.
  * The authentication and credential framework in charon has been
  heavily refactored to support modular credential providers, proper
  CERTREQ/CERT payload exchanges and extensible authorization rules.
  * Support for "Hash and URL" encoded certificate payloads has been
  implemented in the IKEv2 daemon charon.
  * The IKEv2 daemon charon now supports the "uniqueids" option to
  close multiple IKE_SAs with the same peer.
  * The crypto factory in libstrongswan additionally supports random
  number generators. Plugins may provide other sources of randomness.
  * Extended the credential framework by a caching option to allow
  plugins persistent caching of fetched credentials.
  * The new trust chain verification introduced in 4.2.0 has been
  parallelized. Threads fetching CRL or OCSP information no longer
  block other threads.
  * A new IKEv2 configuration attribute framework has been introduced
  allowing plugins to provide virtual IP addresses, and in the future,
  other configuration attribute services (e.g. DNS/WINS servers).
  * The stroke plugin has been extended to provide virtual IP addresses
  from a simple pool defined in ipsec.conf.
  * Fixed compilation on uClibc and a couple of other minor bugs.
  * The IKEv1 pluto daemon now supports the ESP encryption algorithm
  CAMELLIA with key lengths of 128, 192, and 256 bits, as well as the
  authentication algorithm AES_XCBC_MAC.
- Applied a small patch defining _GNU_SOURCE for struct in6_pktinfo
  and adding inclusion of limits.h for PATH_MAX availability.
- Added rpmlintrc file and a libtoolize call to the spec file.

- Updated to 4.1.11 maintenance release, providing following fixes:
  * IKE rekeying in NAT situations did not inherit the NAT conditions
  to the rekeyed IKE_SA so that the UDP encapsulation was lost with
  the next CHILD_SA rekeying.
  * Wrong type definition of the next_payload variable in id_payload.c
  caused an INVALID_SYNTAX error on PowerPC platforms. 
  * Implemented IKEv2 EAP-SIM server and client test modules that use
  triplets stored in a file. For details on the configuration see
  the scenario 'ikev2/rw-eap-sim-rsa'.
- The 4.1.10 final version, declared upstream as "Fully tested support
  of IPv6 IPsec tunnel connections", fixes ordering error in oscp cache,
  IPv6 defaults of the nexthop parameter, adds support for new EAP
  modules [disabled in this build] and obsoletes our strongswan_path
  and strongswan_ipsec_script_msg patches.
- Removed a sed call from init script.

Sat Dec  8 13:03:42 CET 2007 -

- Updated to 4.1.9 final, including all our patches.
- Changed init script to use ipsec cmd using LSB codes now.
- Added strongswan_path.dif setting a PATH in scripts (updown).
- Added strongswan_ipsec_script_msg.dif for consistent look of
  ipsec script messages.
- Added strongswan_modprobe_syslog.dif redirecting modprobe
  output to syslog.

Mon Nov 26 10:19:40 CET 2007 -

- Renamed charon plugins to avoid rpm conflicts with existing
  libraries (libstroke). Patch: strongswan-libconflicts.dif
- Added init script. Template file:
