===============================================================================
DETAILED INFORMATION

I. DESCRIPTION

1. CVE-2014-3570
	OpenSSL does not properly calculate the square of a BIGNUM value, which might 
    make it easier for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms 
    via unspecified vectors

2. CVE-2014-3571
    OpenSSL  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted DTLS 
    message that is processed with a different read operation for the handshake 
    header than for the handshake body

3. CVE-2014-3572
    OpenSSL allows remote SSL servers to conduct ECDHE-to-ECDH downgrade attacks 
    and trigger loss of forward secrecy by omitting the ServerKeyExchange message.

4. CVE-2014-8275
    OpenSSL does not enforce certain constraints on certificate data, which allows 
    remote attackers to defeat a fingerprint-based certificate-blacklist protection 
    mechanism by including crafted data within a certificate's unsigned portion

5. CVE-2015-0204
    OpenSSL allows remote SSL servers to conduct RSA-to-EXPORT_RSA downgrade attacks 
    and facilitate brute-force decryption by offering a weak ephemeral RSA key 
    in a noncompliant role.

6. CVE-2015-0205
    OpenSSL accepts client authentication with a Diffie-Hellman (DH) certificate 
    without requiring a CertificateVerify message, which allows remote attackers 
    to obtain access without knowledge of a private key via crafted TLS Handshake 
    Protocol traffic to a server that recognizes a Certification Authority 
    with DH support.

7. CVE-2015-0206
    OpenSSL could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory 
    consumption) by sending many duplicate records for the next epoch, leading 
    to failure of replay detection.

III. PLATFORM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

    To determine if your system is vulnerable, execute the following
    command:

    lslpp -L openssl.base

    The following fileset levels are vulnerable:

A. CVE-2014-3572, CVE-2015-0205, CVE-2015-0206

    AIX Fileset      Lower Level  Upper Level  
    ------------------------------------------
    openssl.base     1.0.1.500    1.0.1.513

Note, 0.9.8.401 and 12.9.8.1100 are the Lowest OpenSSL version
available in aix web download site. Even OpenSSL versions below 
this are impacted

IV. SOLUTIONS

A. FIXES

    Fix is available.  The fix can be downloaded via ftp
    from:

    ftp://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix12.tar

    The link above is to a tar file containing this signed
    advisory, fix packages, and OpenSSL signatures for each package.
    The fixes below include prerequisite checking. This will
    enforce the correct mapping between the fixes and AIX
    releases.

Note that the tar file contains Interim fixes that are based on OpenSSL version.

    AIX Level      Interim Fix (*.Z)            Fileset Name(prereq for installation)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5.3, 6.1, 7.1   IV69033s9a.150129.epkg.Z    openssl.base(1.0.1.513 version)
    5.3, 6.1, 7.1   IV69033s9b.150129.epkg.Z    openssl.base(0.9.8.2504 version)
    5.3, 6.1, 7.1   IV69033s9c.150129.epkg.Z    openssl.base(12.9.8.2504 version)

    VIOS Level     Interim Fix (*.Z)	        Fileset Name(prereq for installation)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.2.*          IV69033s9a.150129.epkg.Z     openssl.base(1.0.1.513 version)
    2.2.*          IV69033s9b.150129.epkg.Z     openssl.base(0.9.8.2504 version)
    2.2.*          IV69033s9c.150129.epkg.Z     openssl.base(12.9.8.2504 version)


    To extract the fix from the tar file:

    tar xvf openssl_fix12.tar
    cd openssl_fix12

    Verify you have retrieved the fix intact:

    The checksums below were generated using the
    "openssl dgst -sha256 file" command is the followng:

    openssl dgst -sha256         						                filename	 
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
	ba67b128e22ca028756100a473137b64cd8758c8182e4cda8bc3293b69cb53ba        IV69033s9a.150129.epkg.Z
    1c244927ae807d9c55dee91366ac88488a1312103a19f3017758989f91759f48        IV69033s9b.150129.epkg.Z
    361e751b0ce323b57b8865fca66e90f0dc541857a04b4c67f55874b01e98fffb        IV69033s9c.150129.epkg.Z

    These sums should match exactly. The OpenSSL signatures in the tar
    file and on this advisory can also be used to verify the
    integrity of the fixes.  If the sums or signatures cannot be
    confirmed, contact IBM AIX Security at
    [email protected] and describe the discrepancy.

B. FIX AND INTERIM FIX INSTALLATION

    IMPORTANT: If possible, it is recommended that a mksysb backup
    of the system be created.  Verify it is both bootable and
    readable before proceeding.

    To preview a fix installation:

    installp -a -d fix_name -p all  # where fix_name is the name of the
                                    # fix package being previewed.
    To install a fix package:

    installp -a -d fix_name -X all  # where fix_name is the name of the
                                    # fix package being installed.

    Interim fixes have had limited functional and regression
    testing but not the full regression testing that takes place
    for Service Packs; however, IBM does fully support them.

    Interim fix management documentation can be found at:

    http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/aix.efixmgmt/home.html

    To preview an interim fix installation:

    emgr -e ipkg_name -p         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                 # interim fix package being previewed.

    To install an interim fix package:

    emgr -e ipkg_name -X         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                 # interim fix package being installed.
