Released
August172021

R5.5 #

(build 7900 from 2021-08-17)

New binaries for .NET Core 3.1

We added a new set of binaries targeting .NET Core 3.1. We have already been supporting that platform since 2019 via .NET Standard 2.1. However, the new set of binaries utilizes .NET Core's hardware intrinsics API and features our fast ChaCha20/Poly1305 implementation that has been previously only available on .NET 5.0.

For an overview of available binaries and supported platforms, check out Rebex Support Lifecycle KB article.

Detailed list of changes:

  • All: Added 'netcoreapp3.1' binaries.
  • Syslog: Added SyslogMessageReceivedEventArgs.Timestamp property (available for messages received by a server).

R5.3 #

(build 7840 from 2021-06-18)

Maintenance release

This is a maintenance release with enhancements in the shared functionality.

Detailed list of changes:

  • SSH: Fixed race condition in OpenSSH-style compression startup code (occasionally caused connection failures during authentication with SSH compression was enabled).
  • TLS Core: Added SslSettings.SetPreferredSuites/GetPreferredSuites methods to make it possible to specify client-side TLS cipher preference.
  • TLS Core: Improved logging when remote party does not support TLS 1.3.
  • TLS Core: Optimized TlsSocket.Negotiate method when TLS 1.3 is enabled but not supported by the remote side.
  • TLS Core: Prevented 'unobserved' exceptions in task-based TLS 1.2 core.
  • Cryptography: Added support for private keys using PBKDF2 with HMAC/SHA-2 (RFC 8018 / PKCS #5 v2.1).
  • Cryptography: Fixed detection of FIPS-only systems on .NET Framework 4.8.
  • Cryptography: Optimized creation of algorithm objects in CNG layer.

New component: Rebex Syslog

Rebex Syslog is syslog client and server library for .NET. It supports UDP, TCP and TLS, and is compatible with third-party syslog clients and servers. It supports TLS 1.3, TLS 1.2 and earlier versions on all mainstream platforms including .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 7. SHA-2, SNI, AES/GCM, ChaCha20/Poly1305 and other modern TLS features are supported as well.

The new library is available as a standalone package or as a part of Rebex Total Pack.

Detailed list of changes:

  • Syslog: Initial release of Rebex Syslog component.
  • Networking: Added support for SOCKS5 servers that respond with domain name.
  • SSH: Optimized usage of ChaCha20/Poly1305 in SSH.
  • Cryptography: Added ChaCha20Poly1305 class that implements ChaCha20/Poly1305 with an API that resembles .NET's AesGcm class.
  • Cryptography: Added support for loading of ECDSA certificates from PFX/P12 files in .NET 5.0 and .NET Standard 2.1 on Linux and macOS.
  • Cryptography: Added support for saving to PFX/P12 files for certificates with temporarily associated private keys in .NET 5.0 and .NET Standard 2.1 on Linux and macOS.
  • Cryptography: AVX2 implementation of ChaCha20 releases old pre-generated keystream immediately after reinitialization.
  • Cryptography: Clearing output data in AesGcm class when authentication tag is invalid.
  • Cryptography: Fixed parsing of Cryptographic Message Syntax envelopes with unsupported OIDs.
  • Cryptography: Improved ChaCha20/Poly1305 performance on .NET 3.5-4.6 and .NET Standard 2.x.
  • Cryptography: Improved performance of AES/CTR ciphers (used in SSH).
  • Common: Improved error handling when raising events via synchronization context.
