Name        : freeradius
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 2.1.12
Release     : 1.fc14

Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
Description :
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable
GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some respects to
Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a variant of the
Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common any more. It now has
many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more configurable.

FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins, and
more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

  fix scriptlet argument testing, simplify always exiting with zero
* Tue Oct 19 2010 John Dennis <jdennis at redhat.com> - 2.1.10-1
Feature improvements
  * Install the "radcrypt" program.
  * Enable radclient to send requests containing MS-CHAPv1
    Send packets with: MS-CHAP-Password = "password".  It will
    be automatically converted to the correct MS-CHAP attributes.
  * Added "-t" command-line option to radtest.  You can use "-t pap",
   "-t chap", "-t mschap", or "-t eap-md5".  The default is "-t pap"
  * Make the "inner-tunnel" virtual server listen on
    This change and the previous one makes PEAP testing much easier.
  * Added more documentation and examples for the "passwd" module.
  * Added dictionaries for RFC 5607 and RFC 5904.
  * Added note in proxy.conf that we recommend setting
    "require_message_authenticator = yes" for all home servers.
  * Added example of second "files" configuration, with documentation.
    This shows how and where to use two instances of a module.
  * Updated radsniff to have it write pcap files, too.  See '-w'.
  * Print out large WARNING message if we send an Access-Challenge
    for EAP, and receive no follow-up messages from the client.
  * Added Cached-Session-Policy for EAP session resumption.  See
  * Added support for TLS-Cert-* attributes. For details, see
    raddb/sites-available/default, "post-auth" section.
  * Added sample raddb/modules/{opendirectory,dynamic_clients}
  * Updated Cisco and Huawei, HP, Redback, and ERX dictionaries.
  * Added RFCs 5607, 5904, and 5997.
  * For EAP-TLS, client certificates can now be validated using an
    external command.  See eap.conf, "validate" subsection of "tls".
  * Made rlm_pap aware of {nthash} prefix, for compatibility with
    legacy RADIUS systems.
  * Add Module-Failure-Message for mschap module (ntlm_auth)
  * made rlm_sql_sqlite database configurable.  Use "filename"
    in sql{} section.
  * Added %{tolower: ...string ... }, which returns the lowercase
    version of the string.  Also added %{toupper: ... } for uppercase.

  Bug fixes
  * Fix endless loop when there are multiple sub-options for
    DHCP option 82.
  * More debug output when sending / receiving DHCP packets.
  * EAP-MSCHAPv2 should return the MPPE keys when used outside
    of a TLS tunnel.  This is needed for IKE.
  * Added SSL "no ticket" option to prevent SSL from creating sessions
    without IDs.  We need the IDs, so this option should be set.
  * Fix proxying of packets from inside a TTLS/PEAP tunnel.
    Closes bug #25.
  * Allow IPv6 address attributes to be created from domain names
    Closes bug #82.
  * Set the string length to the correct value when parsing double
    quotes.  Closes bug #88.
  * No longer look users up in /etc/passwd in the default configuration.
    This can be reverted by enabling "unix" in the "authorize" section.
  * More #ifdef's to enable building on systems without certain
  * Fixed SQL-Group comparison to register only if the group
    query is defined.
  * Fixed SQL-Group comparison to register <instance>-SQL-Group,
    just like rlm_ldap.  This lets you have multiple SQL group checks.
  * Fix scanning of octal numbers in "unlang".  Closes bug #89.
  * Be less aggressive about freeing "stuck" requests.  Closes bug #35.
  * Fix example in "originate-coa" to refer to the correct packet.
  * Change default timeout for dynamic clients to 1 hour, not 1 day.
  * Allow passwd module to map IP addresses, too.
  * Allow passwd module to be used for CoA packets
  * Put boot filename into DHCP header when DHCP-Boot-Filename
    is specified.
  * raddb/certs/Makefile no longer has certs depend on index.txt and
     serial.  Closes bug #64.
  * Ignore NULL errorcode in PostgreSQL client.  Closes bug #39
  * Made Exec-Program and Exec-Program-Wait work in accounting
    section again.  See sites-available/default.
  * Fix long-standing memory leak in esoteric conditions.  Found
    by Jerry Nichols.
  * Added "Password-With-Header == userPassword" to raddb/ldap.attrmap
    This will automatically convert more passwords.
  * Updated rlm_pap to decode Password-With-Header, if it was base64
    encoded, and to treat the contents as potentially binary data.
  * Fix Novell eDir code to use the right function parameters.
    Closes bug #86.
  * Allow spaces to be escaped when executing external programs.
    Closes bug #93.
  * Be less restrictive about checking permissions on control socket.
    If we're root, allow connecting to a non-root socket.
  * Remove control socket on normal server exit.  If the server isn't
    running, the control socket should not exist.
  * Use MS-CHAP-User-Name as Name field from EAP-MSCHAPv2 for MS-CHAP
    calculations.  It *MAY* be different (upper / lower case) from
    the User-Name attribute.  Closes bug #17.
  * If the EAP-TLS methods have problems, more SSL errors are now
    available in the Module-Failure-Message attribute.
  * Update Oracle configure scripts.  Closes bug #57.
  * Added text to DESC fields of doc/examples/openldap.schema
  * Updated more documentation to use "Restructured Text" format.
    Thanks to James Lockie.
  * Fixed typos in raddb/sql/mssql/dialup.conf.  Closes bug #11.
  * Return error for potential proxy loops when using "-XC"
  * Produce better error messages when slow databases block
    the server.
  * Added notes on DHCP broadcast packets for FreeBSD.
  * Fixed crash when parsing some date strings.  Closes bug #98
  * Improperly formatted Attributes are now printed as "Attr-##".
    If they are not correct, they should not use the dictionary name.
  * Fix rlm_digest to be check the format of the Digest attributes,
    and return "noop" rather than "fail" if they're not right.
  * Enable "digest" in raddb/sites-available/default.  This change
    enables digest authentication to work "out of the box".
  * Be less aggressive about marking home servers as zombie.
    If they are responding to some packets, they are still alive.
  * Added Packet-Transmit-Counter, to track detail file retransmits.
    Closes bug #13.
  * Added configure check for lt_dladvise_init().  If it exists, then
    using it solves some issues related to libraries loading libraries.
  * Added indexes to the MySQL IP Pool schema.
  * Print WARNING message if too many attributes are put into a packet.
  * Include dhcp test client (not built by default)
  * Added checks for LDAP constraint violation.  Closes bug #18.
  * Change default raddebug timeout to 60 seconds.
  * Made error / warning messages more consistent.
  * Correct back-slash handling in variable expansion.  Closes bug #46.
    You SHOULD check your configuration for backslash expansion!
  * Fix typo in "configure" script (--enable-libltdl-install)
  * Use local libltdl in more situations.  This helps to avoid
    compile issues complaining about lt__PROGRAM__LTX_preloaded_symbols.
  * Fix hang on startup when multiple home servers were defined
    with "src_ipaddr" field.
  * Fix 32/64 bit issue in rlm_ldap.  Closes bug #105.
  * If the first "listen" section defines, don't use that
    as a source IP for proxying.  It won't work.
  * When Proxy-To-Realm is set to a non-existent realm, the EAP module
    should handle the request, rather than expecting it to be proxied.
  * Fix IPv4 issues with udpfromto.  Closes bug #110.
  * Clean up child processes of raddebug.  Closes bugs #108 and #109
  * retry OTP if the OTP daemon fails.  Closes bug #58.
  * Multiple calls to ber_printf seem to work better.  Closes #106.
  * Fix "unlang" so that "attribute not found" is treated as a "false"
    comparison, rather than a syntax error in the configuration.
  * Fix issue with "Group" attribute.
