Enhancements
  • The default version of the OpenSSL library, 1.0.2r, has reached the end of its product life-cycle and has been upgraded to version 1.1.1d. In addition to receiving full update support, version 1.1.1d fixes the following security vulnerabilities:*
    • Padding Oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey (CVE-2019-1563)
    • Windows builds with insecure path defaults (CVE-2019-1552)
    • Fork Protection (CVE-2019-1549)
    • ECDSA remote timing attack (CVE-2019-1547)
    • ChaCha20-Poly1305 with long nonces (CVE-2019-1543)
    • Timing vulnerability in ECDSA signature generation (CVE-2018-0735) 

    Version 1.1.1d also addresses vulnerabilities resolved by earlier versions of the library. For more information on the installed library files, refer to the readme. 

    For more information on the OpenSSL vulnerabilities resolved by this upgrade, refer to the corresponding OpenSSL announcements at https://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities-1.1.1.html.
  • The new AllowedOpenSSLVersions option determines which version of the OpenSSL library file the driver uses for data encryption when multiple versions are installed with the product. For example, when specifying a value of 1.1.1 (AllowedOpenSSLVersions=1.1.1) the driver uses the 1.1.1 version of the library that is installed with the driver.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2r:*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2n.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2k.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2j.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2h.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2g.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2f.
  • Support for Kerberos Authentication.
  • The new CryptoLibName and SSLLibName connection options allow you to 
     designate the OpenSSL libraries used when SSL is enabled.
Changed Behavior
  • The following Windows platforms have reached the end of their product lifecycle and are no longer supported by the driver*:
    • Windows 8.0 (versions 8.1 and higher are still supported)
    • Windows Vista (all versions)
    • Windows XP (all versions)
    • Windows Server 2003 (all versions)

Version 7.1.5

Certifications
  • Certified with Red Hat Enterprise 7.0
  • Certified with CentOS Linux 7.0
  • Certified with Oracle Linux 7.0
Enhancements
  • The OpenSSL library was upgraded to version 1.0.0r, which fixes the
    CVE‐2015‐0204 (FREAK) vulnerability. See "RSA silently downgrades
    to EXPORT_RSA [Client] (CVE‐2015‐0204)" at
    https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20150108.txt for more
    information.
  • The new Crypto Protocol Version connection option allows you to specify
    the cryptographic protocols used when SSL is enabled. This option can be
    used to avoid vulnerabilities associated with SSLv3 and SSLv2, including
    the POODLE vulnerability.
  • The new Unbounded Numeric Precision connection option allows you to
    define the precision for unbounded NUMERIC columns described
    within the column, parameter, result set, or table metadata.
  • The new Unbounded Numeric Scale connection option allows you to
    define the scale for unbounded NUMERIC columns described within
    the column, parameter, result set, or table metadata.

Version 7.1.4

Certifications
  • Certified with Windows 8.1
Enhancements
  • The new KeepAlive connection option allows you to use TCP Keep Alive to maintain idle TCP connections.

Version 7.1.3

Certifications
  • Certified with CentOS Linux 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x
  • Certified with Oracle Linux 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x
Changed Behavior
  • The EncryptionMethod connection option now supports Request SSL
    functionality. When Request SSL is enabled, login requests and data are
    encrypted if the server is configured for SSL. If the server is not
    configured for SSL, an unencrypted connection is established.
