Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2582-02

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2582-02
Posted Nov 3, 2016
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2582-02 - Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in almost any context: In cryptographic toolkits for object-oriented languages, such as C++, Python, or Pike, in applications like lsh or GnuPG, or even in kernel space. Security Fix: Multiple flaws were found in the way nettle implemented elliptic curve scalar multiplication. These flaws could potentially introduce cryptographic weaknesses into nettle's functionality.

1. Summary:

An update for nettle is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client Optional (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional (v. 7) - x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 7) - x86_64

3. Description:

Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in almost
any context: In cryptographic toolkits for object-oriented languages, such
as C++, Python, or Pike, in applications like lsh or GnuPG, or even in
kernel space.

Security Fix(es):

* Multiple flaws were found in the way nettle implemented elliptic curve
scalar multiplication. These flaws could potentially introduce
cryptographic weaknesses into nettle's functionality. (CVE-2015-8803,
CVE-2015-8804, CVE-2015-8805)

* It was found that nettle's RSA and DSA decryption code was vulnerable to
cache-related side channel attacks. An attacker could use this flaw to
recover the private key from a co-located virtual-machine instance.
(CVE-2016-6489)

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.3 Release Notes linked from the References section.
