Version 1.10.8, 2014-04-10ΒΆ

  • Fix a bug in primality testing introduced in 1.8.3 which caused only a single random base, rather than a sequence of random bases, to be used in the Miller-Rabin test. This increased the probability that a non-prime would be accepted, for instance a 1024 bit number would be incorrectly classed as prime with probability around 2^-40. Reported by Jeff Marrison.
  • The key length limit on HMAC has been raised to 512 bytes, allowing the use of very long passphrases with PBKDF2.
