Changelog for libsodium23-1.0.17-75.2.x86_64.rpm
* Fri Jul 13 2018 dimstarAATTopensuse.org- Add baselibs.conf: build libsodium23-32bit, which is required by zeromq\'s -32bit packages.
* Thu Jul 12 2018 mpluskalAATTsuse.com- Add gpg signature- Modernise spec file with spec-cleaner
* Fri Dec 29 2017 adam.majerAATTsuse.de- Enable verbose make output when building tests
* Wed Dec 13 2017 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Update to 1.0.16
* Signatures computations and verifications are now way faster on 64-bit platforms with compilers supporting 128-bit arithmetic (gcc, clang, icc). This includes the WebAssembly target.
* New low-level APIs for computations over edwards25519: crypto_scalarmult_ed25519(), crypto_scalarmult_ed25519_base(), crypto_core_ed25519_is_valid_point(), crypto_core_ed25519_add(), crypto_core_ed25519_sub() and crypto_core_ed25519_from_uniform() (elligator representative to point).
* crypto_sign_open(), crypto_sign_verify_detached() and crypto_sign_edwards25519sha512batch_open` now reject public keys in non-canonical form in addition to low-order points.
* The library can be built with ED25519_NONDETERMINISTIC defined in order to use synthetic nonces for EdDSA. This is disabled by default.
* sodium_stackzero() was added to wipe content off the stack.
* The Salsa20-based PRNG example is now thread-safe on platforms with support for thread-local storage, optionally mixes bits from RDRAND.
* Argon2 and scrypt are slightly faster on Linux.
* Sun Oct 08 2017 ilyaAATTilya.pp.ua- Refresh spec-file.- Update to 1.0.15.
* Release notes: https://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium/releases/tag/1.0.15
* The default password hashing algorithm is now Argon2id.
* The pwhash_str_verify() function can still verify Argon2i hashes without any changes, and pwhash() can still compute Argon2i hashes as well.
* The aes128ctr primitive was removed. It was slow, non-standard, not authenticated, and didn\'t seem to be used by any opensource project.
* Argon2id required at least 3 passes like Argon2i, despite a minimum of 1 as defined by the OPSLIMIT_MIN constant. This has been fixed.
* The secretstream construction was slightly changed to be consistent with forthcoming variants.
* Note that due to these incompatible changes, the library version major was bumped up.
* Thu Sep 28 2017 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Update to version 1.0.14
* Internal consistency checks failing and primitives used with dangerous/out-of-bounds/invalid parameters used to call abort(3). Now, a custom handler that doesn\'t return can be set with the set_sodium_misuse() function. It still aborts by default or if the handler ever returns. This is not a replacement for non-fatal, expected runtime errors. This handler will be only called in unexpected situations due to potential bugs in the library or in language bindings.
*_MESSAGEBYTES_MAX macros (and the corresponding _messagebytes_max() symbols) have been added to represent the maximum message size that can be safely handled by a primitive. Language bindings are encouraged to check user inputs against these maximum lengths.
* The test suite has been extended to cover more edge cases.
* crypto_sign_ed25519_pk_to_curve25519() now rejects points that are not on the curve, or not in the main subgroup.
* Further changes have been made to ensure that smart compilers will not optimize out code that we don\'t want to be optimized.
* The sodium_runtime_has_
* symbols for CPU features detection are now defined as weak symbols, i.e. they can be replaced with an application-defined implementation. This can be useful to disable AVX
* when temperature/power consumption is a concern.
*() now aborts if called with no non-NULL pointers to store keys to.
* SSE2 implementations of crypto_verify_
*() have been added.
* Passwords can be hashed using a specific algorithm with the new crypto_pwhash_str_alg() function.
* Due to popular demand, base64 encoding (sodium_bin2base64()) and decoding (sodium_base642bin()) have been implemented.
* A new crypto_secretstream_
*() API was added to safely encrypt files and multi-part messages.
* The sodium_pad() and sodium_unpad() helper functions have been added in order to add & remove padding.
* An AVX512 optimized implementation of Argon2 has been added.
* The crypto_pwhash_str_needs_rehash() function was added to check if a password hash string matches the given parameters, or if it needs an update. Updates from 1.0.13
* An AVX2 optimized implementation of the Argon2 round function was added.
* The Argon2id variant of Argon2 has been implemented. The high-level crypto_pwhash_str_verify() function automatically detects the algorithm and can verify both Argon2i and Argon2id hashed passwords. The default algorithm for newly hashed passwords remains Argon2i in this version to avoid breaking compatibility with verifiers running libsodium <= 1.0.12.
* A crypto_box_curve25519xchacha20poly1305_seal
*() function set was implemented.
* Mon Mar 13 2017 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Update to version 1.0.12
* Ed25519ph was implemented, adding a multi-part signature API (crypto_sign_init(), crypto_sign_update(), crypto_sign_final_
* New constants and related accessors have been added for Scrypt and Argon2.
* XChaCha20 has been implemented. Like XSalsa20, this construction extends the ChaCha20 cipher to accept a 192-bit nonce. This makes it safe to use ChaCha20 with random nonces.
* crypto_secretbox, crypto_box and crypto_aead now offer variants leveraging XChaCha20.
* SHA-2 is about 20% faster, which also gives a speed boost to signature and signature verification.
* AVX2 implementations of Salsa20 and ChaCha20 have been added. They are twice as fast as the SSE2 implementations. The speed gain is even more significant on Windows, that previously didn\'t use vectorized implementations.
* New high-level API: crypto_kdf, to easily derive one or more subkeys from a master key.
* Siphash with a 128-bit output has been implemented, and is available as crypto_shorthash_siphashx_
*_keygen() helpers functions have been added to create secret keys for all constructions. This improves code clarity and can prevent keys from being partially initialized.
* A new randombytes_buf_deterministic() function was added to deterministically fill a memory region with pseudorandom data. This function can especially be useful to write reproducible tests.
* A preliminary crypto_kx_
*() API was added to compute shared session keys.
* AVX2 detection is more reliable.
* Sat Aug 06 2016 iAATTmarguerite.su- update version 1.0.11
* sodium_init() is now thread-safe, and can be safely called multiple times.
* Better support for old gcc versions.
* AVX2 detection was fixed, resulting in faster BLAKE2b hashing on platforms where it was not properly detected.
* The Sandy2x Curve25519 implementation was not as fast as expected on some platforms. This has been fixed.
* The NativeClient target was improved. Most notably, it now supports optimized implementations, and uses pepper_49 by default.
* The library can be compiled with recent Emscripten versions. Changes have been made to produce smaller code, and the default heap size was reduced in the standard version.
* Decryption functions can now accept a NULL pointer for the output. This checks the MAC without writing the decrypted message.
* crypto_generichash_final() now returns -1 if called twice.
* Tue Apr 05 2016 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Update to version 1.0.10

* Mon Nov 02 2015 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Update to 1.0.6
* Optimized implementations of Blake2 have been added for modern Intel platforms. crypto_generichash() is now faster than MD5 and SHA1 implementations while being far more secure.
* The crypto_sign_edwards25519sha512batch_
*() functions have been tagged as deprecated.
* sodium_compare() now works as documented, and compares numbers in little-endian format instead of behaving like memcmp().
* sodium_runtime_has_ssse3() and sodium_runtime_has_sse41() have been added.
* Wed Oct 21 2015 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Now that gcc 5.2 is available on TW, remove the ARMv7 workaround.
* Sun Oct 18 2015 idonmezAATTsuse.com- Update to 1.0.4
* Support for AES256-GCM has been added. This requires a CPU with the aesni and pclmul extensions, and is accessible via the crypto_aead_aes256gcm_
* ChaCha20 with an extended (96 bit) nonce and a 32-bit counter has been implemented as crypto_stream_chacha20_ietf(), crypto_stream_chacha20_ietf_xor() and crypto_stream_chacha20_ietf_xor_ic(). An IETF-compatible version of ChaCha20Poly1305 is available as crypto_aead_chacha20poly1305_ietf_npubbytes(), crypto_aead_chacha20poly1305_ietf_encrypt() and crypto_aead_chacha20poly1305_ietf_decrypt().
