3. Description:

Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of libraries designed to support
the cross-platform development of security-enabled client and server
applications.

Security Fix(es):

* nss: Side channel attack on ECDSA signature generation (CVE-2020-6829)

* nss: P-384 and P-521 implementation uses a side-channel vulnerable
modular inversion function (CVE-2020-12400)

* nss: CHACHA20-POLY1305 decryption with undersized tag leads to
out-of-bounds read (CVE-2020-12403)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es):

* Support key wrap/unwrap with RSA-OAEP (BZ#1896431)

* 1536bit group from RFC3526 is allowed in FIPS mode when in policy DH-MIN
is set to be lower than 1536 (BZ#1896432)

* when NSS_SDB_USE_CACHE not set, after curl access https, dentry increase
but never released - consider alternative algorithm for benchmarking ACCESS
call in sdb_measureAccess [rhel-8] (BZ#1896933)

* Policy should allow overriding library defaults (BZ#1898702)

* KDF-self-tests-induced changes for nss in RHEL 8.4 (BZ#1898953)

* nss: non-blocksize requests to IKEv1 KDF returns bogus output
(BZ#1904408)

4. Solution:
