This is also a mozilla-nss update to version 3.16 :

- required for Firefox 29

- bmo#903885 - (CVE-2014-1492) In a wildcard certificate, the wildcard character should not be embedded within the U-label of an internationalized domain name. See the last bullet point in RFC 6125, Section 7.2.

- Supports the Linux x32 ABI. To build for the Linux x32 target, set the environment variable USE_X32=1 when building NSS. New Functions :

- NSS_CMSSignerInfo_Verify New Macros

- TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA, etc., cipher suites that were first defined in SSL 3.0 can now be referred to with their official IANA names in TLS, with the TLS_ prefix. Previously, they had to be referred to with their names in SSL 3.0, with the SSL_ prefix. Notable Changes :

- ECC is enabled by default. It is no longer necessary to set the environment variable NSS_ENABLE_ECC=1 when building NSS. To disable ECC, set the environment variable NSS_DISABLE_ECC=1 when building NSS.

- libpkix should not include the common name of CA as DNS names when evaluating name constraints.

- AESKeyWrap_Decrypt should not return SECSuccess for invalid keys.

- Fix a memory corruption in sec_pkcs12_new_asafe.

- If the NSS_SDB_USE_CACHE environment variable is set, skip the runtime test sdb_measureAccess.

- The built-in roots module has been updated to version 1.97, which adds, removes, and distrusts several certificates.

- The atob utility has been improved to automatically ignore lines of text that aren't in base64 format.

- The certutil utility has been improved to support creation of version 1 and version 2 certificates, in addition to the existing version 3 support.
