We proudly present a new maintenance release of our IAIK ECCelerate™ elliptic curve library! Version 4.01 adds support for curves from the FIDO ECDAA standard and fixes minor bugs. IAIK ECCelerate™ is based on Java 6 technology and has been thoroughly optimized for speed. Currently, it supports ECDSA, ECDH, ECIES and optionally ECMQV.
iSaSiLk 5.105 Maintenance release fixes some ECC related issues.
iSaSiLk v4.4 now supports the new
RenegotiationInfo extension (RFC 5746) that has been specified by the IETF TLS working group to fix a severe security flaw in the SSL/TLS renegotiation protocol.
Full protection can only be achieved by no more allowing any SSL/TLS communication with unpatched client/servers that do not support the RenegotiationInfo extension yet. Since it may take a certain transition period until the majority of all SSL/TLS applications will be able to perform secure renegotiation, the new iSaSiLk release also contains a special version allowing legacy renegotiation with unpatched peers.
However, we strongly recommend to ugrade to iSaSiLk v4.4 as soon as possible, both for security and interoperability reasons. More and more SSL/TLS applications will integrate support for the RenegotiationInfo extension and sooner or later may start to strictly refuse any communication with peers that are not able to handle the new extension.
