Gmane
From: Simon Josefsson <simon <at> josefsson.org>
Subject: GnuTLS 1.7.8.p11.0
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.encryption.gpg.gnutls.devel
Date: Wednesday 2nd May 2007 13:50:41 UTC (over 10 years ago)
Here is the first release on the PKCS#11 branch.  The support is
currently rather limited, but I decided to make a release early to
invite more feedback.  The NEWS entry is:

* Version 1.7.8.p11.0 (released 2007-05-02)

** New function to get trusted CA certificates from PKCS#11 provider.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_pkcs11_get_ca_certificates: ADD.

Warning!  This is even more experimental than the experimental 1.7.x
branch.  However, the changes compared to 1.7.8 are intentionally kept
minimal, to facilitate easy merging later on.

The support is limited to:

1) Support for build-time linking to the PKCS#11 provider scute, see
   http://www.scute.org/.

2) Retrieving trusted CA certificates from the PKCS#11 provider.

To test it, you'll need to build scute from SVN (because it contains a
CKA_TRUSTED related fix), and set it up (try using it in mozilla), which
can be non-trivial.  See the Scute manual.  I generated new keys on an
OpenPGP smartcard with gpg2 --edit-card and gpgsm-gencert.sh, then
signed the CSR with certtool using the GnuTLS test CA, and imported the
certificates using 'gpgsm --import'.

If someone can explain to me how I can test other PKCS#11 providers, I
can test them too.  Supporting the NSS soft token provider is an
important target.

The gnutls-cli tool in this release automatically import all CAs from
Scute, and here is an output from running it against the GnuTLS test
server:

jas@mocca:~$ ~/src/gnutls-pkcs11/src/gnutls-cli --port 5556 test.gnutls.org

- Peer's certificate is trusted
- Version: TLS 1.2
- Key Exchange: DHE RSA
- Cipher: AES 256 CBC
- MAC: SHA
- Compression: DEFLATE
- Handshake was completed
...

Notice that it says the peer's certificate is trusted, without any
--x509certfile.  The GnuTLS CA is retrieved from Scute.  To debug
things, add a '-d 10' and you'll see some debug info:

Here the 1532B4BA5A8A7988CA264283591BA3A21C0BCC24 certificate is the
GnuTLS CA, and the BD5F80DE63034EC9E2841E6309552E345C5F226F certificate
is my client certificate (which is not used as a trusted root).

Improving GnuTLS is costly, but you can help!  We are looking for
organizations that find GnuTLS useful and wish to contribute back.
You can contribute by reporting bugs, improve the software, or donate
money or equipment.

Commercial support contracts for GnuTLS are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding GnuTLS
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
