    NSS 3.12 Release Notes

    17 June 2008

    Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.tech.crypto

    Contents


    Introduction

    Network Security Services (NSS) 3.12 is a minor release with the following new features:
    • SQLite-Based Shareable Certificate and Key Databases
    • libpkix: an RFC 3280 Compliant Certificate Path Validation Library
    • Camellia cipher support
    • TLS session ticket extension (RFC 5077)
    NSS 3.12 is tri-licensed under the MPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1.

    Note: Firefox 3 uses NSS 3.12, but not the new SQLite-based shareable certificate and key databases. We missed the deadline to enable that feature in Firefox 3.


    Distribution Information

    The CVS tag for the NSS 3.12 release is NSS_3_12_RTM.  NSS 3.12 requires NSPR 4.7.1.

    See the Documentation section for the build instructions.

    NSS 3.12 source and binary distributions are also available on ftp.mozilla.org for secure HTTPS download:

    You also need to download the NSPR 4.7.1 binary distributions to get the NSPR 4.7.1 header files and shared libraries, which NSS 3.12 requires. NSPR 4.7.1 binary distributions are in https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/nspr/releases/v4.7.1/.

    Documentation

    For a list of the primary NSS documentation pages on mozilla.org, see NSS Documentation. New and revised documents available since the release of NSS 3.11 include the following:

    Compatibility

    NSS 3.12 shared libraries are backward compatible with all older NSS 3.x shared libraries. A program linked with older NSS 3.x shared libraries will work with NSS 3.12 shared libraries without recompiling or relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of NSS APIs to the functions listed in NSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future versions of the NSS shared libraries.

    Feedback

    Bugs discovered should be reported by filing a bug report with mozilla.org Bugzilla(product NSS).
