Synopsis
========

A cache-related side channel vulnerability was found in nettle which
might allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information.

Background
==========

Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in
almost any context: In cryptographic toolkits for object-oriented
languages, such as C++, Python, or Pike, in applications like lsh or
GnuPG, or even in kernel space.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/nettle < 3.2-r1 >= 3.2-r1

Description
===========

It was found that nettle's RSA and DSA decryption code was vulnerable
to cache-related side channel attacks.

See the referenced technical paper "Cache Attacks Enable Bulk Key
Recovery on the Cloud" below for details.

Impact
======

An attacker could recover the private key from a co-located
virtual-machine instance.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All nettle users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/nettle-3.2-r1"
