mozilla-nss was updated to NSS 3.25. New functionality :

- Implemented DHE key agreement for TLS 1.3

- Added support for ChaCha with TLS 1.3

- Added support for TLS 1.2 ciphersuites that use SHA384 as the PRF

- In previous versions, when using client authentication with TLS 1.2, NSS only supported certificate_verify messages that used the same signature hash algorithm as used by the PRF. This limitation has been removed.

- Several functions have been added to the public API of the NSS Cryptoki Framework. New functions :


- NSSCKFWSession_GetFWSlot

- NSSCKFWInstance_DestroySessionHandle

- NSSCKFWInstance_FindSessionHandle Notable changes :

- An SSL socket can no longer be configured to allow both TLS 1.3 and SSLv3

- Regression fix: NSS no longer reports a failure if an application attempts to disable the SSLv2 protocol.
