It was discovered that the Libraries component of OpenJDK accepted ECDSA signatures using non-canonical DER encoding. This could cause a Java application to accept signature in an incorrect format not accepted by other cryptographic tools.

Description Tomas Hoger 2017-01-17 10:11:09 UTC
It was discovered that the ECDSASignature class in the Libraries component of OpenJDK accepted signatures using non-canonical DER encoding.  This could cause a Java application to accept signature in an incorrect format not accepted by other cryptographic tools.

  More checks added to DER encoding parsing code

  More checks are added to the DER encoding parsing code to catch various
  encoding errors. In addition, signatures which contain constructed
  indefinite length encoding will now lead to IOException during parsing.
  Note that signatures generated using JDK default providers are not affected
  by this change.
