Bouncy Castle Crypto Provider Package version 1.67 now available
Release 1.67 is now out.
This release addresses security, performance, and bugs. Issues
concerning OpenBSDBcrypt, nested BER data, and the BCJSSE have been
addressed. The Java 11/Java 15 XECKey and EdECKey support has been
expanded to the BC KeyAgreement and Signature classes converting keys
automatically where the Oracle interfaces are fully implemented. Initial
(expiremental) support has been added for composite keys and signatures
based on the draft RFC, and performance of Argon2, Noekeon, GCM, custom
binary curves and Edwards Curves has been improved as well. Further work
has also been done on limiting potential side channels in modular
inversion operations used in various algorithms.
