IJ11618: TRUST ANCHORS FOR IBM CLOUD, PRIVATE KEY OBJECT LEAK IN HSM, IBM APPSCAN VULNERABILITY
Closed as program error.
Error Message: N/A . Stack Trace: N/A .
1. Add Trust anchors for IBM cloud We need to be able to populate keystore with the trust anchors needed to deploy and operate within the IBM Cloud. 2. Private key objects leak in HSM iKeyman sometimes leak private key objects in HSM. The problem is the public key attribute "CKA_VERIFY" (keys used for verifying) is required to be set to TRUE to list both the private key and Trusted cert entry and thus avoid private key leak problem. In iKeyman code, this attribute was set to default value "FALSE". 3. Vulnerability reported by IBM AppScan IBM Appscan reports that BufferedReader.readLine() method is prone to Allocation of Resources Without Limits and Reliance of untrusted input. (i.e. exhaust heap)
1. Add Trust anchors for IBM cloud Following options are introduced to add trust anchors for IBM cloud to the existing keystore -ibmcloudtrust which applies to the -create and -convert operations. -addtrust adds legacy default set of trusted CAs or those required for deployment within IBM Cloud. 2. Private key objects leak in HSM iKeyman code is fixed to set this attribute CKA_VERIFY to TRUE. Also, iKeyman CLI command parameter "-crypto" is modified to enable the user to pick up the token library filename from PKCS11 configuration file specified for the IBMPKCS11Impl security provider in java.security file. For more information, please refer to the latest iKeyman user guide. 3. Vulnerability reported by IBM AppScan Replace BufferedReader.readLine() method with an internal API that imposes limits both on the length of each line and total number of lines read. . This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases: 8 SR5 FP30 (220.127.116.11) 7 R1 SR4 FP40 (18.104.22.168) 7 SR10 FP40 (22.214.171.124) .
