Secure Elements Class 5 AVR uses the same encryption key and initialization vector for every message session

Status

Affected

Vendor Statement

Remediation in C5 EVM version 2.8.1 and above

No change in the 2.8.n release. While it is preferable that the initialization vector be randomly selected for each encrypted session, the selection of a new encryption key to obscure data patterns in successive sessions is a minimal risk. This risk is not applicable in future 3.n.n releases.
