pkgsrc/security/gnutls: Makefile distinfo
Update to 1.2.9:
* Version 1.2.9 (2005-11-07)
- Documentation was updated and improved.
- RSA-MD2 is now supported for verifying digital signatures.
- Due to cryptographic advances, verifying untrusted X.509
certificates signed with RSA-MD2 or RSA-MD5 will now fail with a
GNUTLS_CERT_INSECURE_ALGORITHM verification output. For
applications that must remain interoperable, you can use the
GNUTLS_VERIFY_ALLOW_SIGN_RSA_MD2 or GNUTLS_VERIFY_ALLOW_SIGN_RSA_MD5
flags when verifying certificates. Naturally, this is not
recommended default behaviour for applications. To enable the
broken algorithms, call gnutls_certificate_set_verify_flags with the
proper flag, to change the verification mode used by
- Make it possible to send empty data through gnutls_record_send,
to align with the send(2) API.
- Some changes in the certificate receiving part of handshake to prevent
some possible errors with non-blocking servers.
- Added numeric version symbols to permit simple CPP-based feature
tests, suggested by Daniel Stenberg <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
- The (experimental) low-level crypto alternative to libgcrypt used
earlier (Nettle) has been replaced with crypto code from gnulib.
This leads to easier re-use of these components in other projects,
leading to more review and simpler maintenance. The new configure
parameter --with-builtin-crypto replace the old --with-nettle, and
must be used if you wish to enable this functionality. See README
under "Experimental" for more information. Internally, GnuTLS has
been updated to use the new "Generic Crypto" API in gl/gc.h. The
API is similar to the old crypto/gc.h, because the gnulib code were
based on GnuTLS's gc.h.
- Fix compiler warning in the "anonself" self test.
- API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify: Added 'const' to prototype in <gnutls/x509.h>.
This doesn't reflect a change in behaviour,
so we don't break backwards compatibility.
GNUTLS_MAC_MD2: New gnutls_mac_algorithm_t value.
GNUTLS_DIG_MD2: New gnutls_digest_algorithm_t value.
GNUTLS_VERIFY_ALLOW_SIGN_RSA_MD5: New gnutls_certificate_verify_flags values.
Use when calling
GNUTLS_CERT_INSECURE_ALGORITHM: New gnutls_certificate_status_t value,
used when broken signature algorithms
is used (currently RSA-MD2/MD5).
LIBGNUTLS_VERSION_NUMBER: New CPP symbols, indicating the GnuTLS
version number, can be used for feature existence
