wolfSSL 3.12.2 Now Available

Added: (Wed Nov 29 2017)

Pressbox (Press Release) -

We are happy to announce the release of wolfSSL v.3.12.2. It includes many performance improvements with Intel ASM (AVX/AVX2) and AES-NI. wolfSSL has implemented a new single precision math option to speed up RSA, DH and ECC. Embedded hardware support has been expanded for STM32, PIC32MZ and ATECC508A, and AES-XTS mode support has been added for use with disk encryption.

There have been improvements to some of our certificate API's that allow for setting the serial number, key usage and extended key usage. A refactor of the 'SSL_' API's and hash types has been performed to allow OpenSSL coexistence. There have been improvements made for TLS 1.3 support in this release. A fix was implemented for OCSP stapling to prevent sending the extension unexpectedly, WOLFSSL specific user contexts were added for callbacks, and there were fixes for some OpenSSL and MySQL compatibility functions. The wolfSSL Micrium port was updated for Micrium uC/OS-III, and there were fixes and improvements implemented for asynchronous modes for Intel QuickAssist and Cavium Nitrox V.
