FreeBSD : FreeRADIUS -- TLS resumption authentication bypass (673dce46-46d0-11e7-a539-0050569f7e80)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Stefan Winter reports :

The TLS session cache in FreeRADIUS before 3.0.14 fails to reliably
prevent resumption of an unauthenticated session, which allows remote
attackers (such as malicious 802.1X supplicants) to bypass
authentication via PEAP or TTLS.
