FreeRADIUS Insufficient CRL Application

FreeRADIUS Insufficient CRL Application
Posted Jun 23, 2015
Authored by Andrea Barisani, Open Source CERT

The FreeRADIUS server relies on OpenSSL to perform certificate validation, including Certificate Revocation List (CRL) checks. The FreeRADIUS usage of OpenSSL, in CRL application, limits the checks to leaf certificates, therefore not detecting revocation of intermediate CA certificates. An unexpired client certificate, issued by an intermediate CA with a revoked certificate, is therefore accepted by FreeRADIUS. Versions equal to and below 2.2.7 and 3.0.8 are affected.

#2015-008 FreeRADIUS insufficent CRL application

Description:

The FreeRADIUS server is an open source project that provides a RADIUS
implementation.

The FreeRADIUS server relies on OpenSSL to perform certificate validation,
including Certificate Revocation List (CRL) checks. The FreeRADIUS usage of
OpenSSL, in CRL application, limits the checks to leaf certificates,
therefore not detecting revocation of intermediate CA certificates.

An unexpired client certificate, issued by an intermediate CA with a revoked
certificate, is therefore accepted by FreeRADIUS.

Specifically sets the X509_V_FLAG_CRL_CHECK flag for leaf certificate CRL
checks, but does not use X509_V_FLAG_CRL_CHECK_ALL for CRL checks on the
complete trust chain.

The FreeRADIUS project advises that the recommended configuration is to use
self-signed CAs for all EAP-TLS methods.

Affected version:

FreeRADIUS <= 2.2.7, <= 3.0.8

Fixed version:

FreeRADIUS >= 2.2.8, >= 3.0.9
