Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1297816
When using SHA2 as PRF algorithm, the nonce payload is below the RFC required minimum size
Last modified: 2016-11-03 17:22:34 EDT
Description of problem:
IKEv2 requires a nonce size of at least half the size of the key length of the PRF key size used. libreswan always used 128 bit, which is enough for all but two sha2 variants (sha2_384 and sha2_512)
Merge in upstream https://github.com/libreswan/libreswan/commit/d935515aeef12225a54ba34478d394ac1f3c0750
could you give me some reproducer for that? I think, I understand the issue, but I do not know what I have to looking for in the log file. For test I used this configuration file:
One more question. I read your patch and it seems to me, there are two, non-related, parts - dcookie and nonce. Am I right or these parts are related?
when running with plutodebug=all, look for something like:
May 5 10:21:25: | ***parse ISAKMP Nonce Payload:
May 5 10:21:25: | next payload type: ISAKMP_NEXT_KE (0x4)
May 5 10:21:25: | length: 24 (0x18)
You should see the different sizes on length.
the dcookie part of that commit is unrelated to the nonce size.
This fix will come in via a rebase
