cryptlib Information for VU#997481

Cryptographic libraries and applications do not adequately defend against timing attacks



Vendor Statement

cryptlib is typically used in situations such as severely resource-constrained environments where this type of attack isn't really feasible, which has lead to (to date) zero requests from users for blinding support. Although there is blinding code present, it currently requires a manual code change for users to access. Future releases will make the blinding functionality a standard configuration option.
