Description Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos 2016-07-27 08:42:42 UTC
Description of problem:
The libtasn1 3.x branch is unmaintained upstream, and has several open security issues. The 4.x branch in addition to having these security issues resolved it contains several performance improvements (e.g., parsing time of a 10mb crl from minutes to a second), that warrant upgrading to it.
