CVE-2015-8803

Status Candidate

Overview

The ecc_256_modp function in ecc-256.c in Nettle before 3.2 does not properly handle carry propagation and produces incorrect output in its implementation of the P-256 NIST elliptic curve, which allows attackers to have unspecified impact via unknown vectors, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-8805.

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.
