This new release of the eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution includes the following updates:
New in OpenSSL --------------
* Updated included OpenSSL libraries from OpenSSL 1.0.1o to 1.0.1p. See https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20150709.txt for a complete list of changes. The following fixes are relevant for pyOpenSSL applications:
- CVE-2015-1793: An error in the implementation of the alternative certificate chain logic could allow an attacker to use a regular server leaf certificate as CA certificate.
Please see the product changelog for the full set of changes.
pyOpenSSL / OpenSSL Binaries Included -------------------------------------
In addition to providing sources, we make binaries available that include both pyOpenSSL and the necessary OpenSSL libraries for all supported platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and FreeBSD, for x86 and x64.
To simplify installation, we have uploaded a web installer to PyPI which will automatically choose the right binary for your platform, so a simple
pip install egenix-pyopenssl
will get you the package with OpenSSL libraries installed. Please see our installation instructions for details:
We have also added .egg-file distribution versions of our eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X to the available download options. These make setups using e.g. zc.buildout and other egg-file based installers a lot easier.
The download archives and instructions for installing the package can be found at:
Before installing this version of pyOpenSSL, please make sure that you uninstall any previously installed pyOpenSSL version. Otherwise, you could end up not using the included OpenSSL libs.
