eGenix is pleased to announce the eGenix pyOpenSSL Distribution 0.13.3.1.0.1.8 for Python 2.4 - 2.7, with source and binaries for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
The eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution includes everything you need to
get started with SSL in Python. It comes with an easy to use installer
that includes the most recent OpenSSL library versions in pre-compiled
form, making your application independent of OS provided OpenSSL libraries:
is an open-source Python add-on that allows writing SSL-aware
networking applications as as certificate managment tools. It uses the OpenSSL library as performant and robust SSL engine.
OpenSSL is an open-source implementation of the SSL/TLS protocol.
This new release of the eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution
This new release of the eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution updates the
included OpenSSL version to the latest OpenSSL 1.0.1h version and adds a few more context options:
CVE-2014-0224: An attacker can force the use of weak keying material in OpenSSL
SSL/TLS clients and servers. This can be exploited by a
Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack where the attacker can decrypt and
modify traffic from the attacked client and server.
By sending an invalid DTLS handshake to an OpenSSL DTLS client the code
can be made to recurse eventually crashing in a DoS attack. Only
applications using OpenSSL as a DTLS client are affected.
CVE-2014-3470: OpenSSL TLS clients enabling anonymous ECDH ciphersuites are subject to a DoS attack.
New in eGenix pyOpenSSL
Added the following new options for context.set_options(): OP_TLSEXT_PADDING, OP_SAFARI_ECDHE_ECDSA_BUG, OP_NO_SESSION_RESUMPTION_ON_RENEGOTIATION, OP_ALLOW_UNSAFE_LEGACY_RENEGOTIATION.
Documented all supported context.set_options() options (to the extent possible using the OpenSSL documentation itself).
Updated the included CA root certificate bundles to Mozilla's 2014-04-22 update.
pyOpenSSL / OpenSSL Binaries Included
In addition to providing sources, we make binaries available that include both pyOpenSSL and the necessary OpenSSL libraries for all supported platforms: Windows x86 and x64, Linux x86 and x64, Mac OS X PPC, x86 and x64.
We have also added .egg-file distribution versions of our eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X to the available download options. These make setups using e.g. zc.buildout and other egg-file based installers a lot easier.
