Fedora 11 Update: freeradius-2.1.7-1.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-9665
2009-09-16 20:03:17
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : freeradius
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 2.1.7
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.freeradius.org/
Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
Description :
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable
GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some respects to
Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a variant of the
Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common any more. It now has
many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more configurable.

FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins, and
more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

Update Information:

- enable building of the rlm_wimax module  - pcap wire analysis support is
enabled and available in utils subpackage  - Resolves bug #523053 radtest
manpage in wrong package  - install COPYRIGHT CREDITS INSTALL LICENSE README
into docdir  - resolves bug #507571 freeradius packages do not check for
user/group existence  - update to latest upstream release 2.1.7, from upstream
Changelog:    Feature improvements      * Full support for CoA and Disconnect
packets as per RFC 3576        and RFC 5176.  Both receiving and proxying CoA is
supported.      * Added "src_ipaddr" configuration to "home_server".  See
proxy.conf for details.      * radsniff now accepts -I, to read from a filename
instead of        a device.      * radsniff also prints matching requests and
any responses to those        requests when '-r' is used.      * Added example
of attr_filter for Access-Challenge packets      * Added support for udpfromto
in DHCP code      * radmin can now selectively mark modules alive/dead.
See "set module state".      * Added customizable messages on login
success/fail.        See msg_goodpass && msg_badpass in log{} section of
radiusd.conf      * Document "chase_referrals" and "rebind" in
raddb/modules/ldap      * Preliminary implementation of DHCP relay.      * Made
thread pool section optional.  If it doesn't exist,        the server will run
single-threaded.      * Added sample radrelay.conf for people upgrading from 1.x
* Made proxying more stable by failing over, rather than        rejecting the
first request.  See "response_window" in proxy.conf      * Allow
home_server_pools to exist without realms.      * Add dictionary.iea (closes bug
#7)      * Added support for RFC 5580      * Added experimental sql_freetds
module from Gabriel Blanchard.      * Updated dictionary.foundry      * Added
sample configuration for MySQL cluster in raddb/sql/ndb        See the README
file for explanations.    Bug fixes      * Fixed corner case where proxied
packets could have extra        character in User-Password attribute.  Fix from
Niko Tyni.      * Extended size of "attribute" field in SQL to 64.      * Fixes
to ruby module to be more careful about when it builds.      * Updated Perl
module "configure" script to check for broken        Perl installations.      *
Fix "status_check = none".  It would still send packets        in some cases.
* Set recursive flag on the proxy mutex, which enables safer        cleanup on
some platforms.      * Copy the EAP username verbatim, rather than escaping it.
* Update handling so that robust-proxy-accounting works when        all home
servers are down for extended periods of time.      * Look for DHCP option 53
anywhere in the packet, not just        at the start.      * Fix processing of
proxy fail handler with virtual servers.      * DHCP code now prints out correct
src/dst IP addresses        when sending packets.      * Removed requirement for
DHCP to have clients      * Fixed handling of DHCP packets with message-type
buried in the packet      * Fixed corner case with negation in unlang.      *
Minor fixes to default MySQL & PostgreSQL schemas      * Suppress MSCHAP
complaints in debugging mode.      * Fix SQL module for multiple instance, and
possible crash on HUP      * Fix permissions for radius.log for sites that
change user/group,        but which don't create the file before starting
radiusd.      * Fix double counting of packets when proxying      * Make %%l
work      * Fix pthread keys in rlm_perl      * Log reasons for EAP failure
(closes bug #8)      * Load home servers and pools that aren't referenced from a
realm.      * Handle return codes from virtual attributes in "unlang"
(e.g. LDAP-Group).  This makes "!(expr)" work for them.      * Enable VMPS to
see contents of virtual server again      * Fix WiMAX module to be consistent
with examples.  (closes bug #10)      * Fixed crash with policies dependent on
NAS-Port comparisons      * Allowed vendor IDs to be be higher than 32767.

attr_filter module when packets don't exist      * Allow detail file reader to
be faster when "load_factor = 100"      * Add work-around for build failures
with errors related to        lt__PROGRAM__LTX_preloaded_symbols.  libltdl /
libtool are horrible.      * Made ldap module "rebind" option aware of older,
incompatible        versions of OpenLDAP.      * Check value of Fall-Through in

- make /etc/raddb/sites-available/* be config(noreplace)
* Mon May 18 2009 John Dennis <jdennis redhat com> - 2.1.6-1
- update to latest upstream release, from upstream Changelog:
    Feature improvements
      * radclient exits with 0 on successful (accept / ack), and 1
        otherwise (no response / reject)
      * Added support for %{sql:UPDATE ..}, and insert/delete
        Patch from Arran Cudbard-Bell
      * Added sample "do not respond" policy.  See raddb/policy.conf
        and raddb/sites-available/do_not_respond
      * Cleanups to Suse spec file from Norbert Wegener
      * New VSAs for Juniper from Bjorn Mork
      * Include more RFC dictionaries in the default install
      * More documentation for the WiMAX module
      * Added "chase_referrals" and "rebind" configuration to rlm_ldap.
        This helps with Active Directory.  See raddb/modules/ldap
      * Don't load pre/post-proxy if proxying is disabled.
      * Added %{md5:...}, which returns MD5 hash in hex.
      * Added configurable "retry_interval" and "poll_interval"
        for "detail" listeners.
      * Added "delete_mppe_keys" configuration option to rlm_wimax.
        Apparently some WiMAX clients misbehave when they see those keys.
      * Added experimental rlm_ruby from
        http://github.com/Antti/freeradius-server/tree/master
      * Add Tunnel attributes to ldap.attrmap
      * Enable virtual servers to be reloaded on HUP.  For now, only
        the "authorize", "authenticate", etc. processing sections are
        reloaded.  Clients and "listen" sections are NOT reloaded.
      * Updated "radwatch" script to be more robust.  See scripts/radwatch
      * Added certificate compatibility notes in raddb/certs/README,
        for compatibility with different operating systems. (i.e. Windows)
      * Permit multiple "-e" in radmin.
      * Add support for originating CoA-Request and Disconnect-Request.
        See raddb/sites-available/originate-coa.
      * Added "lifetime" and "max_queries" to raddb/sql.conf.
        This helps address the problem of hung SQL sockets.
      * Allow packets to be injected via radmin.  See "inject help"
        in radmin.
      * Answer VMPS reconfirmation request.  Patch from Hermann Lauer.
      * Sample logrotate script in scripts/logrotate.freeradius
      * Add configurable poll interval for "detail" listeners
      * New "raddebug" command.  This prints debugging information from
        a running server.  See "man raddebug.
      * Add "require_message_authenticator" configuration to home_server
        configuration.  This makes the server add Message-Authenticator
        to all outgoing Access-Request packets.
      * Added smsotp module, as contributed by Siemens.
      * Enabled the administration socket in the default install.
        See raddb/sites-available/control-socket, and "man radmin"
      * Handle duplicate clients, such as with replicated or
        load-balanced SQL servers and "readclients = yes"

    Bug fixes
      * Minor changes to allow building without VQP.
      * Minor fixes from John Center
      * Fixed raddebug example
      * Don't crash when deleting attributes via unlang
      * Be friendlier to very fast clients
      * Updated the "detail" listener so that it only polls once,
        and not many times in a row, leaking memory each time...
      * Update comparison for Packet-Src-IP-Address (etc.) so that
        the operators other than '==' work.
      * Did autoconf magic to work around weird libtool bug
      * Make rlm_perl keep tags for tagged attributes in more situations
      * Update UID checking for radmin
      * Added "include_length" field for TTLS.  It's needed for RFC
        compliance, but not (apparently) for interoperability.
      * Clean up control sockets when they are closed, so that we don't
        leak memory.
      * Define SUN_LEN for systems that don't have it.
      * Correct some boundary conditions in the conditional checker ("if")
        in "unlang".  Bug noted by Arran Cudbard-Bell.
      * Work around minor building issues in gmake.  This should only
        have affected developers.
      * Change how we manage unprivileged user/group, so that we do not
        create control sockets owned by root.
      * Fixed more minor issues found by Coverity.
      * Allow raddb/certs/bootstrap to run when there is no "make"
        command installed.
      * In radiusd.conf, run_dir depends on the name of the program,
        and isn't hard-coded to "..../radiusd"
      * Check for EOF in more places in the "detail" file reader.
      * Added Freeswitch dictionary.
      * Chop ethernet frames in VMPS, rather than droppping packets.
      * Fix EAP-TLS bug.  Patch from Arnaud Ebalard
      * Don't lose string for regex-compares in the "users" file.
      * Expose more functions in rlm_sql to rlm_sqlippool, which
        helps on systems where RTLD_GLOBAL is off.
      * Fix typos in MySQL schemas for ippools.
      * Remove macro that was causing build issues on some platforms.
      * Fixed issues with dead home servers.  Bug noted by Chris Moules.
      * Fixed "access after free" with some dynamic clients.

- fix packaging bug, some directories missing execute permission
  /etc/raddb/dictionary now readable by all.
