Description David Jaša 2013-11-28 10:53:14 UTC
Description of problem:
spice-gtk advertises TLS 1.0 as its maximum supported tls version. Given that TLS 1.0 is already ageing, it should advertise the highest version supported by openssl.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a ssl test server:
openssl s_server -cert /path/to/server-cert.pem -key /path/to/server-key.pem -accept <port> <CIPHER_VERSION>
cipher version is:
   * -tls1   for TLS 1.0
   * -tls1_1 for TLS 1.1
   * -tls1_2 for TLS 1.2
2. start wireshark capture on port the server listens
3. connect using remote-viewer:
remote-viewer --spice-ca-file /path/to/ca-cert.pem [--spice-host-subject SUBJECT] spice://<host>/?tls-port=<port>

Actual results:
Connection is refused for TLS 1.1 and 1.2 (FIN packet or SSL Alert packet is sent in response to ClientHello)

Expected results:
Connection is established for all protocol versions
