“openvpn” 2.1~rc7-1ubuntu3.2 source package in Ubuntu


openvpn (2.1~rc7-1ubuntu3.2) hardy-security; urgency=low

  * init.c: Do not attempt to verify the key file with openvpn-vulnkey if it
    is not accessible (any more). This happens when using the 'user', 'group',
    or 'chroot' options in multi-client mode, and the SSL key file thus
    becomes unreadable from the second time on. If the key file is not
    accessible at the very start, this is already handled anyway, so we can
    safely ignore this condition. (LP: #230208)
    Note that this is not an issue when using pre-shared keys
    (do_init_crypto_static(), since multi-client mode only works with TLS.
    However, we also check it here just to be on the safe side.

openvpn: Virtual Private Network daemon

 An application to securely tunnel IP networks over a single UDP or TCP port.
 It can be used to access remote sites, make secure point to point connections,
 enhance WiFi security, etc.
 OpenVPN uses all of the encryption, authentication, and certification features
 of the OpenSSL library (any cipher, key size, or HMAC digest).
 OpenVPN may use static, pre-shared keys or TLS-based dynamic key exchange. It
 also supports VPNs with dynamic endpoints (DHCP or dial-up clients), tunnels
 over NAT or connection-oriented stateful firewalls (like Linux's iptables).
