Subject: Broken SIGNATURE File for SHA-256
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 2.6k
According to the Module::Signature docs, it should be possible to use digest algorithms other than SHA-1 by setting the $Cipher variable. However, attempting to use SHA-256 by setting $Cipher to 'SHA256' (or 'SHA-256') results in a broken SIGNATURE file with a header and trailer, but no entries. I've marked this bug as IMPORTANT since many in the crypto community no longer consider SHA-1 to be safe, and are recommending SHA-256 as a natural replacement. $ perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 8 subversion 6) configuration: Platform: osname=darwin, osvers=7.7.0, archname=darwin-64int-2level uname='darwin mac.home 7.7.0 darwin kernel version 7.7.0: sun nov 7 16:06:51 pst 2004; root:xnuxnu-517.9.5.obj~1release_ppc power macintosh powerpc ' config_args='-de -Duse64bitint' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=define usethreads=undef use5005threads=undef useithreads=undef usemultiplicity=undef useperlio=define d_sfio=undef uselargefiles=define usesocks=undef use64bitint=define use64bitall=undef uselongdouble=undef usemymalloc=n, bincompat5005=undef Compiler: cc='cc', ccflags ='-fno-common -DPERL_DARWIN -no-cpp-precomp -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include', optimize='-Os', cppflags='-no-cpp-precomp -fno-common -DPERL_DARWIN -no-cpp-precomp -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include' ccversion='', gccversion='3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1495)', gccosandvers='' intsize=4, longsize=4, ptrsize=4, doublesize=8, byteorder=87654321 d_longlong=define, longlongsize=8, d_longdbl=define, longdblsize=8 ivtype='long long', ivsize=8, nvtype='double', nvsize=8, Off_t='off_t', lseeksize=8 alignbytes=8, prototype=define Linker and Libraries: ld='env MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 cc', ldflags =' -L/usr/local/lib' libpth=/usr/local/lib /usr/lib libs=-ldbm -ldl -lm -lc perllibs=-ldl -lm -lc libc=/usr/lib/libc.dylib, so=dylib, useshrplib=false, libperl=libperl.a gnulibc_version='' Dynamic Linking: dlsrc=dl_dyld.xs, dlext=bundle, d_dlsymun=undef, ccdlflags=' ' cccdlflags=' ', lddlflags=' -bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup -L/usr/local/lib' Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): Compile-time options: USE_64_BIT_INT USE_LARGE_FILES Built under darwin Compiled at Jan 30 2005 04:23:36 @INC: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.6/darwin-64int-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.6 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/darwin-64int-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/darwin-64int-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .
