* Mon Sep 12 2011
  - remove _service file, too fragile
* Mon Sep 12 2011
  - Fixed version in last changelog entry
* Thu Sep 08 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 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 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 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 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 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 02 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 02 2010
  - Added README.SUSE to source list in the spec file.
* Fri May 14 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 02 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 04 2009
  - Fixed open failure debug message in load_secrets
* Thu Sep 03 2009
  - Applied patch fixing locking in ipsec.secrets inclusion.
* Mon Aug 31 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 07 2009
  - Applied patch implementing ipsec.secrets "include" directive
    support in charon (,
* Mon Jul 27 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 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).
* Sun Jun 07 2009
  - rename getline to my_getline to avoid collision with function
    from glibc
* Tue Jun 02 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 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.
