- Updated to strongSwan 5.1.1 minor release addressing two security
  fixes (bnc#847506,CVE-2013-6075, bnc#847509,CVE-2013-6076):
  - Fixed a denial-of-service vulnerability and potential authorization
    bypass triggered by a crafted ID_DER_ASN1_DN ID payload. The cause
    is an insufficient length check when comparing such identities. The
    vulnerability has been registered as CVE-2013-6075.
  - Fixed a denial-of-service vulnerability triggered by a crafted IKEv1
    fragmentation payload. The cause is a NULL pointer dereference. The
    vulnerability has been registered as CVE-2013-6076.
  - The lean stand-alone pt-tls-client can set up a RFC 6876 PT-TLS
    session with a strongSwan policy enforcement point which uses the
    tnc-pdp charon plugin.
  - The new TCG TNC SWID IMC/IMV pair supports targeted SWID requests
    for either full SWID Tag or concise SWID Tag ID inventories.
  - The XAuth backend in eap-radius now supports multiple XAuth
    exchanges for different credential types and display messages.
    All user input gets concatenated and verified with a single
    User-Password RADIUS attribute on the AAA. With an AAA supporting
    it, one for example can implement Password+Token authentication with
    proper dialogs on iOS and OS X clients.  - charon supports IKEv1 Mode
    Config exchange in push mode. The ipsec.conf modeconfig=push option
    enables it for both client and server, the same way as pluto used it.
  - Using the "ah" ipsec.conf keyword on both IKEv1 and IKEv2
    connections, charon can negotiate and install Security Associations
    integrity-protected by the Authentication Header protocol. Supported
    are plain AH(+IPComp) SAs only, but not the deprecated RFC2401 style
    ESP+AH bundles.
  - The generation of initialization vectors for IKE and ESP (when using
    libipsec) is now modularized and IVs for e.g. AES-GCM are now correctly
    allocated sequentially, while other algorithms like AES-CBC still
    use random IVs.
  - The left and right options in ipsec.conf can take multiple address
    ranges and subnets. This allows connection matching against a larger
    set of addresses, for example to use a different connection for clients
    connecting from a internal network.
  - For all those who have a queasy feeling about the NIST elliptic curve
    set, the Brainpool curves introduced for use with IKE by RFC 6932 might
    be a more trustworthy alternative.
  - The kernel-libipsec userland IPsec backend now supports usage
    statistics, volume based rekeying and accepts ESPv3 style TFC padded
  - With two new strongswan.conf options fwmarks can be used to implement
    host-to-host tunnels with kernel-libipsec.
  - load-tester supports transport mode connections and more complex
    traffic selectors, including such using unique ports for each tunnel.
  - The new dnscert plugin provides support for authentication via CERT
    RRs that are protected via DNSSEC.  The plugin was created by Ruslan
    N. Marchenko.
  - The eap-radius plugin supports forwarding of several Cisco Unity
    specific RADIUS attributes in corresponding configuration payloads.
  - Database transactions are now abstracted and implemented by the two
    backends. If you use MySQL make sure all tables use the InnoDB engine.
  - libstrongswan now can provide an experimental custom implementation
    of the printf family functions based on klibc if neither Vstr nor
    glibc style printf hooks are available. This can avoid the Vstr
    dependency on some systems at the cost of slower and less complete
    printf functions.
- Adjusted file lists: this version installs the pki utility and manuals
  in common /usr directories and additional ipsec/pt-tls-client helper.

Mon Aug  5 13:48:11 UTC 2013 -

- Updated to strongSwan 5.1.0 release (bnc#833278, CVE-2013-5018):
  - Fixed a denial-of-service vulnerability triggered by specific XAuth
    usernames and EAP identities (since 5.0.3), and PEM files (since
    4.1.11). The crash was caused by insufficient error handling in the
    is_asn1() function. The vulnerability has been registered as
  - The new charon-cmd command line IKE client can establish road
    warrior connections using IKEv1 or IKEv2 with different
    authentication profiles. It does not depend on any configuration
    files and can be configured using a few simple command line options.
  - The kernel-pfroute networking backend has been greatly improved.
    It now can install virtual IPs on TUN devices on OS X and FreeBSD,
    allowing these systems to act as a client in common road warrior
  - The new kernel-libipsec plugin uses TUN devices and libipsec to
    provide IPsec processing in userland on Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X.
  - The eap-radius plugin can now serve as an XAuth backend called
    xauth-radius, directly verifying XAuth credentials using RADIUS
    User-Name/User-Password attributes. This is more efficient than the
    existing xauth-eap+eap-radius combination, and allows RADIUS servers
    without EAP support to act as AAA backend for IKEv1.
  - The new osx-attr plugin installs configuration attributes (currently
    DNS servers) via SystemConfiguration on Mac OS X. The keychain
    plugin provides certificates from the OS X keychain service.
  - The sshkey plugin parses SSH public keys, which, together with the
    --agent option for charon-cmd, allows the use of ssh-agent for
    authentication. To configure SSH keys in ipsec.conf the
    left|rightrsasigkey options are replaced with left|rightsigkey,
    which now take public keys in one of three formats: SSH (RFC 4253,
    ssh: prefix), DNSKEY (RFC 3110, dns: prefix), and PKCS#1 (the
    default, no prefix).
  - Extraction of certificates and private keys from PKCS#12 files is
    now provided by the new pkcs12 plugin or the openssl plugin.
    charon-cmd (--p12) as well as charon (via P12 token in
    ipsec.secrets) can make use of this.
  - IKEv2 can now negotiate transport mode and IPComp in NAT situations.
  - IKEv2 exchange initiators now properly close an established IKE or
    CHILD_SA on error conditions using an additional exchange, keeping
    state in sync between peers.
  - Using a SQL database interface a Trusted Network Connect (TNC)
    Policy Manager can  generate specific measurement workitems for an
    arbitrary number of Integrity Measurement Verifiers (IMVs) based on
    the history of the VPN user and/or device.
  - Several core classes in libstrongswan are now tested with unit
    tests. These can be enabled with --enable-unit-tests and run with
    'make check'.
    Coverage reports can be generated with --enable-coverage and 'make
    coverage' (this disables any optimization, so it should not be
    enabled when building production releases).
  - The leak-detective developer tool has been greatly improved. It
    works much faster/stabler with multiple threads, does not use
    deprecated malloc hooks anymore and has been ported to OS X.
  - chunk_hash() is now based on SipHash-2-4 with a random key. This
    provides better distribution and prevents hash flooding attacks
    when used with hashtables.
  - All default plugins implement the get_features() method to define
    features and their dependencies. The plugin loader has been
    improved, so that plugins in a custom load statement can be ordered
    freely or to express preferences without being affected by
    dependencies between plugin features.
  - A centralized thread can take care for watching multiple file
    descriptors concurrently. This removes the need for a dedicated
    listener threads in various plugins. The number of "reserved"
    threads for such tasks has been reduced to about five, depending on
    the plugin configuration.
  - Plugins that can be controlled by a UNIX socket IPC mechanism gained
    network transparency. Third party applications querying these
    plugins now can use TCP connections from a different host.
  - libipsec now supports AES-GCM.

Tue Apr 30 12:48:44 UTC 2013 -

- Updated to strongSwan 5.0.4 release (bnc#815236, CVE-2013-2944):
  - Fixed a security vulnerability in the openssl plugin which was
    reported by Kevin Wojtysiak.  The vulnerability has been registered
    as CVE-2013-2944. Before the fix, if the openssl plugin's ECDSA
    signature verification was used, due to a misinterpretation of the
    error code returned by the OpenSSL ECDSA_verify() function, an empty
    or zeroed signature was accepted as a legitimate one. Refer to our
    blog for details.
  - The handling of a couple of other non-security relevant OpenSSL
    return codes was fixed as well.
  - The tnc_ifmap plugin now publishes virtual IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
    via its TCG TNC IF-MAP 2.1 interface.
  - The charon.initiator_only strongswan.conf option causes charon to
    ignore IKE initiation requests.
  - The openssl plugin can now use the openssl-fips library.
  The version 5.0.3 provides new ipseckey plugin, enabling authentication
  based on trustworthy public keys stored as IPSECKEY resource records in
  the DNS and protected by DNSSEC and new openssl plugin using the AES-NI
  accelerated version of AES-GCM if the hardware supports it.
  for a list of all changes since the 5.0.1 release.

Thu Nov 29 19:13:40 CET 2012 -

- Verify GPG signature.

Fri Nov 16 04:02:32 UTC 2012 -

- Fix systemd unit dir 

Wed Oct 31 15:25:16 UTC 2012 -

- Updated to strongSwan 5.0.1 release. Changes digest:
  - Introduced the sending of the standard IETF Assessment Result
    PA-TNC attribute by all strongSwan Integrity Measurement Verifiers.
  - Extended PTS Attestation IMC/IMV pair to provide full evidence of
    the Linux IMA measurement process. All pertinent file information
    of a Linux OS can be collected and stored in an SQL database.
  - The PA-TNC and PB-TNC protocols can now process huge data payloads.
  - The xauth-pam backend can authenticate IKEv1 XAuth and Hybrid
    authenticated clients against any PAM service.
  - The new unity plugin brings support for some parts of the IKEv1
    Cisco Unity Extensions.
  - The kernel-netlink plugin supports the new strongswan.conf option
  - Job handling in controller_t was fixed, which occasionally caused
    crashes on ipsec up/down.
  - Fixed transmission EAP-MSCHAPv2 user name if it contains a domain
  Changes digest from strongSwan 5.0.0 version:
  * The charon IKE daemon gained experimental support for the IKEv1
    protocol. Pluto has been removed from the 5.x series.
  * The NetworkManager charon plugin of previous releases is now
    provided by a separate executable (charon-nm) and it should work
    again with NM 0.9.
  * scepclient was updated and it now works fine with Windows Server
    2008 R2.
  For full list of the changes, please read the NEWS file shipped
  in the strongswan-doc package or online:
- Adopted spec file, enabled several plugins, e.g.: ccm, certexpire,
  coupling, ctr, duplicheck, eap-dynamic, eap-peap, eap-tls, eap-tnc,
  eap-ttls, gcm, nonce, radattr, tnc, tnccs, unity, xauth-eap and pam.
- Changed to install strongswan.service with alias to ipsec.service
  instead of the /etc/init.d/ipsec init script on openSUSE > 12.2.

Fri Sep  7 08:36:57 UTC 2012 -

- Applied upstream patch adjusting an internal thread id causing
  charon keying daemon start failure (bnc#779038,strongswan#198):
    openssl: Ensure the thread ID is never zero
    This might otherwise cause problems because OpenSSL tries to
    lock mutexes recursively if it assumes the lock is held by a
    different thread e.g. during FIPS initialization.
  See for more informations.

Thu May 31 16:08:43 UTC 2012 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.6.4 release:
  - Fixed a security vulnerability in the gmp plugin. If this
    plugin was used for RSA signature verification an empty or
    zeroed signature was handled as a legitimate one
    (bnc#761325, CVE-2012-2388).
  - Fixed several issues with reauthentication and address updates.

Thu May 10 09:15:38 UTC 2012 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.6.3 release:
  - The tnc-pdp plugin implements a RADIUS server interface allowing
    a strongSwan TNC server to act as a Policy Decision Point.
  - The eap-radius authentication backend enforces Session-Timeout
    attributes using RFC4478 repeated authentication and acts upon
    RADIUS Dynamic Authorization extensions, RFC 5176. Currently
    supported are disconnect requests and CoA messages containing
    a Session-Timeout.
  - The eap-radius plugin can forward arbitrary RADIUS attributes
    from and to clients using custom IKEv2 notify payloads. The new
    radattr plugin reads attributes to include from files and prints
    received attributes to the console.
  - Added support for untruncated MD5 and SHA1 HMACs in ESP as used
    in RFC 4595.
  - The cmac plugin implements the AES-CMAC-96 and AES-CMAC-PRF-128
    algorithms as defined in RFC 4494 and RFC 4615, respectively.
  - The resolve plugin automatically installs nameservers via
    resolvconf(8), if it is installed, instead of modifying
    /etc/resolv.conf directly.
  - The IKEv2 charon daemon supports now raw RSA public keys in RFC
    3110 DNSKEY and PKCS#1 file format.
  - The farp plugin sends ARP responses for any tunneled address,
    not only virtual IPs.
  - Charon resolves hosts again during additional keying tries.
  - Fixed switching back to original address pair during MOBIKE.
  - When resending IKE_SA_INIT with a COOKIE charon reuses the previous
    DH value, as specified in RFC 5996.
    This has an effect on the lifecycle of diffie_hellman_t, see
    source:src/libcharon/sa/keymat.h#39 for details.
  - COOKIEs are now kept enabled a bit longer to avoid certain race
    conditions the commit message to 1b7debcc has some details.
  - The new stroke user-creds command allows to set username/password
    for a connection.
  - strongswan.conf option added to set identifier for syslog(3) logging.
  - Added a workaround for null-terminated XAuth secrets (as sent by
    Android 4).

Sat Mar  3 00:10:34 UTC 2012 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.6.2 release:
  Changes in 4.6.2:
  - Upgraded the TCG IF-IMC and IF-IMV C API to the upcoming version 1.3
    which supports IF-TNCCS 2.0 long message types, the exclusive flags
    and multiple IMC/IMV IDs. Both the TNC Client and Server as well as
    the "Test", "Scanner", and "Attestation" IMC/IMV pairs were updated.
  - Fully implemented the "TCG Attestation PTS Protocol: Binding to IF-M"
    standard (TLV-based messages only). TPM-based remote attestation of
    Linux IMA (Integrity Measurement Architecture) possible. Measurement
    reference values are automatically stored in an SQLite database.
  - The EAP-RADIUS authentication backend supports RADIUS accounting. It sends
    start/stop messages containing Username, Framed-IP and Input/Output-Octets
    attributes and has been tested against FreeRADIUS and Microsoft NPS.
  - Added support for PKCS#8 encoded private keys via the libstrongswan
    pkcs8 plugin.  This is the default format used by some OpenSSL tools since
    version 1.0.0 (e.g. openssl req with -keyout).
  - Added session resumption support to the strongSwan TLS stack.

Wed Feb 15 13:31:40 UTC 2012 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.6.1 release:
  Changes in 4.6.1:
  - Because of changing checksums before and after installation which caused
    the integrity tests to fail we avoided directly linking libsimaka,
    libtls and libtnccs to those libcharon plugins which make use of these
    Instead we linked the libraries to the charon daemon. Unfortunately
    Ubuntu 11.10 activated the --as-needed ld option which discards explicit
    links to dynamic libraries that are not actually used by the charon
    daemon itself, thus causing failures during the loading of the plugins
    which depend on these libraries for resolving external symbols.
  - Therefore our approach of computing  integrity checksums for plugins had
    to be changed radically by moving the hash generation from the
    compilation to the post-installation phase.
  Changes in 4.6.0:
  - The new libstrongswan certexpire plugin collects expiration information
    of all used certificates and exports them to CSV files. It either
    directly exports them or uses cron style scheduling for batch exports.
  - Starter passes unresolved hostnames to charon, allowing it to do name
    resolution not before the connection attempt. This is especially useful
    with connections between hosts using dynamic IP addresses.
    Thanks to Mirko Parthey for the initial patch.
  - The android plugin can now be used without the Android frontend patch
    and provides DNS server registration and logging to logcat.
  - Pluto and starter (plus stroke and whack) have been ported to Android.
  - Support for ECDSA private and public key operations has been added to
    the pkcs11 plugin.  The plugin now also provides DH and ECDH via PKCS#11
    and can use tokens as random number generators (RNG).  By default only
    private key operations are enabled, more advanced features have to be
    enabled by their option in strongswan.conf.  This also applies to public
    key operations (even for keys not stored on the token) which were
    enabled by default before.
  - The libstrongswan plugin system now supports detailed plugin
    dependencies. Many plugins have been extended to export its capabilities
    and requirements. This allows the plugin loader to resolve plugin
    loading order automatically, and in future releases, to dynamically load
    the required features on demand.
    Existing third party plugins are source (but not binary) compatible if
    they properly initialize the new get_features() plugin function to NULL.
  - The tnc-ifmap plugin implements a TNC IF-MAP 2.0 client which can
    deliver metadata about IKE_SAs via a SOAP interface to a MAP server.
    The tnc-ifmap plugin requires the Apache Axis2/C library.
- Merged patches, changed strongswan-doc to be a noarch package.
- Fixed rpmlint runlevel & fsf warnings, updated rpmlintrc

Mon Feb  6 10:27:00 UTC 2012 -

- Only glib.h can be included, fix compilation.

Wed Dec 21 10:31:49 UTC 2011 -

- remove call to suse_update_config (very old work around)

Mon Sep 12 09:26:51 UTC 2011 -

- remove _service file, too fragile

Mon Sep 12 08:24:36 UTC 2011 -

- Fixed version in last changelog entry

Thu Sep  8 16:06:46 UTC 2011 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.5.3 release, changes overview since 4.5.2:
  * Our private libraries (e.g. libstrongswan) are not installed directly in
    prefix/lib anymore. Instead a subdirectory is used (prefix/lib/ipsec/ by
    default). The plugins directory is also moved from libexec/ipsec/ to that
  * The dynamic IMC/IMV libraries were moved from the plugins directory to
    a new imcvs directory in the prefix/lib/ipsec/ subdirectory.
  * Job priorities were introduced to prevent thread starvation caused by too
    many threads handling blocking operations (such as CRL fetching).
  * Two new strongswan.conf options allow to fine-tune performance on IKEv2
    gateways by dropping IKE_SA_INIT requests on high load.
  * IKEv2 charon daemon supports PASS and DROP shunt policies
    preventing traffic to go through IPsec connections. Installation of the
    shunt policies either via the XFRM netfilter or PFKEYv2 IPsec kernel
  * The history of policies installed in the kernel is now tracked so that e.g.
    trap policies are correctly updated when reauthenticated SAs are terminated.
  * IMC/IMV Scanner pair implementing the RFC 5792 PA-TNC (IF-M) protocol.
    Using "netstat -l" the IMC scans open listening ports on the TNC client
    and sends a port list to the IMV which based on a port policy decides if
    the client is admitted to the network.
  * IMC/IMV Test pair implementing the RFC 5792 PA-TNC (IF-M) protocol.
  * The IKEv2 close action does not use the same value as the ipsec.conf dpdaction
    setting, but the value defined by its own closeaction keyword. The action
    is triggered if the remote peer closes a CHILD_SA unexpectedly.
- Fixed some fmt warnings in libchecksum, adopted paths in the spec file

Sun May 29 16:37:00 UTC 2011 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.5.2 release, changes overview since 4.5.1:
  * The whitelist plugin for the IKEv2 daemon maintains an in-memory identity
    whitelist. Any connection attempt of peers not whitelisted will get rejected.
    The 'ipsec whitelist' utility provides a simple command line frontend for
    whitelist administration.
  * The duplicheck plugin provides a specialized form of duplicate checking,
    doing a liveness check on the old SA and optionally notify a third party
    application about detected duplicates.
  * The coupling plugin permanently couples two or more devices by limiting
    authentication to previously used certificates.
  * In the case that the peer config and child config don't have the same name
    (usually in SQL database defined connections), ipsec up|route <peer config>
    starts|routes all associated child configs and ipsec up|route <child config>
    only starts|routes the specific child config.
  * fixed the encoding and parsing of X.509 certificate policy statements (CPS).
  * Duncan Salerno contributed the eap-sim-pcsc plugin implementing a
    pcsc-lite based SIM card backend.
  * The eap-peap plugin implements the EAP PEAP protocol. Interoperates
    successfully with a FreeRADIUS server and Windows 7 Agile VPN clients.
  * The IKEv2 daemon charon rereads strongswan.conf on SIGHUP and instructs
    all plugins to reload. Currently only the eap-radius and the attr plugins
    support configuration reloading.
  * Added userland support to the IKEv2 daemon for Extended Sequence Numbers
    support coming with Linux 2.6.39. To enable ESN on a connection, add
    the 'esn' keyword to the proposal. The default proposal uses 32-bit sequence
    numbers only ('noesn'), and the same value is used if no ESN mode is
    specified. To negotiate ESN support with the peer, include both, e.g.
  * In addition to ESN, Linux 2.6.39 gained support for replay windows larger
    than 32 packets. The new global strongswan.conf option 'charon.replay_window'
    configures the size of the replay window, in packets.

Mon Mar 14 10:59:32 UTC 2011 -

- Updated to strongSwan 4.5.1 release, changes overview since 4.5.0:
  * Implements RFC 5793 Posture Broker Protocol (BP)
  * Re-implemented TNCCS 1.1 protocol
  * Allows to store IKE and ESP proposals in an SQL database
  * Allows to store CRL and OCSP cert points in an SQL database
  * New 'include' statement in strongswan.conf allows recursions
  * Modifications of strongswan.conf parser, cause syntax attr plugin
    syntax changes.
  * ipsec listalgs now appends the plugin registering an algo
  * Adds support for Traffic Flow Confidentiality with Linux 2.6.38
  * New af-alg plugin allows to use new primitives in 2.6.38 crypto api
    and removes the need for additional userland implementations.
  * IKEv2 daemon supports the INITIAL_CONTACT notify
  * conftest conformance testing framework
  * new constraints plugin provides advanced X.509 constraint checking
  * left/rightauth ipsec.conf keywords accept minimum strengths
  * basic support for delta CRLs
  See the NEWS file or
  for a detailed description of the changes.

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.

Mon Jun 30 22:40:31 CEST 2008 -

- 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).

Wed Apr 23 14:28:41 CEST 2008 -

- 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.

Tue Feb 19 11:44:03 CET 2008 -

- 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.
