Description Guillaume Desmottes 2014-06-02 12:51:32 UTC
Wocky master.

Loads of tests are failing with:

wocky-connector-test:ERROR:wocky-connector-test.c:3562:run_test: assertion failed (error == NULL): SSL Certificate Verification Error for weasel-juice.org (wocky-tls-cert-error, 12)
Comment 1 Simon McVittie 2014-06-03 11:06:46 UTC
That's WOCKY_TLS_CERT_UNKNOWN_ERROR. A debug log with WOCKY_DEBUG=all WOCKY_TLS_DEBUG_LEVEL=1 might be informative? (Or increase the debug level if needed, it goes up to 9.)

Doesn't seem to contain much useful info.
Comment 3 Simon McVittie 2014-06-03 14:41:46 UTC
Is this with GNUTLS or OpenSSL? GNUTLS is the recommended code path, but iirc "BIO" is OpenSSL jargon?
Comment 4 Guillaume Desmottes 2014-06-03 14:58:56 UTC
Indeed that's with openssl. With gnutls the test crashes: bug #79594
Comment 5 diane 2015-12-24 07:02:30 UTC
I traced this error with gdb. 

12 is coming from the openssl call SSL_get_verify_result, the openssl verify docs say that is:

 12 X509_V_ERR_CRL_HAS_EXPIRED: CRL has expired

openssl crl -in tests/certs/ca-0-crl.pem -text

shows this:

I'm trying to figure out how to adjust the openssl config files in tests/certs to work with the current openssl, as its pretty clear the fix is to generate an updated CRL.

I figured out how to update the CRL. Attached patch includes a CRL updated for 5 years and reminder to how to update it in the future. Perhaps the perfect patch would either include a test for the CRL being expired in the future or a build target to update the CRL.

Update CRL including keeping the revoked certificate.

In my first attempt to fix this I didn't realize that the CRL included a revoked certificate, so after my update a different set of tests would fail.

In my second attempt I updated the CRL, improved the documentation about how to upate the CRL, and replaced  the second copy of the CRL in the tests/certs/crl/ directory with a symlink -- because its easier to remember to update one copy than two.

Final version of fix

I squished all my changes into a single commit, and made git a bit happier by adding a newline to the end of tests/certs/ca-0-crl.cfg

Looks good to me.

The commit message seems to repeat some information, though:
"Additionally update the example crl update command line." -> this is already mentioned above, isn't it? "...how to update the CRL when it expires"
Comment 12 diane 2016-06-12 18:28:12 UTC
Fix committed as d5e28416fd95b57207f334217f9523c401f6013a
Comment 13 George Kiagiadakis 2016-07-09 07:48:49 UTC
Btw, this never happened with gnutls. This reveals the interesting fact that gnutls does not check the CRL expiry date...

Also, it looks like you committed a CRL which is only for 1 year. Maybe you updated the template afterwards?

I have regenerated it now to last until 2021.
