    Code:

    • Core

      • Added support for building with sanitizers like ASan and UBSan, enabled by WITH_ASAN=1 flags (#548, #556).
      • Fixed a number of possible use-after-free conditions (#546).
      • Themis Core is now compiled with -O2 optimizations enabled by default (#543).
      • Themis Core is now compiled with even more paranoid compiler flags (#578).
      • Fixed various edge-case correctness issues pointed out by sanitizers, clang-tidy, and compiler warnings (#540, #545, #554, #570, #597, #613).
      • Improved memory wiping, making sure that sensitive data doesn't stay in memory longer than absolutely necessary (#584, #585, #586, #612).
      • Soter (low-level security core used by Themis)
      • New function soter_pbkdf2_sha256() can be used to derive encryption keys from passphrases with PBKDF2 algorithm (#574).
      • Key generation
      • New function themis_gen_sym_key() can be used to securely generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#560).
      • Secure Cell
      • New functions:
        • themis_secure_cell_encrypt_seal_with_passphrase()
        • themis_secure_cell_decrypt_seal_with_passphrase()

      provide Seal mode API that is safe to use with passphrases (#577, #582, #640).

      • Secure Session
      • Fixed serialization issue in secure_session_save() and secure_session_load() methods (#658).
      • Breaking changes
      • Secure Cell compatibility with Themis 0.9.6 is now disabled by default (#614).

      Old versions of Themis have been calculating encrypted data length incorrectly, which made Secure Cells encrypted on 64-bit machines impossible to decrypt on 32-bit machines (see #279 for details).

      Themis 0.10 and later versions include a fix for that issue and a compatiblity workaround that allows to decrypt data encrypted by Themis 0.9.6 on 64-bit platforms. This workaround was enabled by default and could be disabled by setting the NO_SCELL_COMPAT varible.

      Since Themis 0.13 the workaround for Themis 0.9.6 compatibility is disabled by default (as it has performance implications). It can be enabled if needed by compling with WITH_SCELL_COMPAT.

      We are planning to remove the workaround completely after Themis 0.9.6 reaches end-of-life in December 2020. Please use this time to migrate existing data if you have been using Themis 0.9.6. To migrate the data, decrypt it and encrypt it back with the latest Themis version.

      • Themis is known to be broken on big-endian architectures (#623, #592).

      Themis has never committed to supporting machines with big-endian architectures. However, it was expected to accidentally work to some degree on such machines, with certain compatibility restrictions on interaction with little-endian machines.

      Recent changes in Themis Core are known to introduce compatibility issues on big-endian architectures. If you believe you are affected by this change, please reach out to us via dev@cossacklabs.com.

    • Android

    See also: Java API updates.

    • Kotlin is now officially supported language on Android (#637).
    • Fixed a crash when decrypting corrupted Secure Cell data (#639).
    • Updated embedded BoringSSL to the latest version (#643).
    • Fixed broken SecureSession#save and SecureSession#restore methods (#658).

    • Breaking changes

      • Android build now uses Gradle 5.6 and requires Java 8 (#633).

      It is no longer possible to build AndroidThemis with Java 7. Please upgrade to Java 8 or later version.

    • Deprecations

      • Unqualified Gradle targets are now deprecated (#633).

      To build Themis for Android, run

        ./gradlew :android:assembleRelease
      

      instead of

        ./gradlew assembleRelease
      

      The unqualified form still works for now, but may break in future releases.

      • C++
    • Secure Cell API updates (#588)

      • ThemisPP now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode:
        #include <themispp/secure_cell.hpp>
      
        auto cell = themispp::secure_cell_seal_with_passphrase("string");
      
        uint8_t[] plaintext = "message";
      
        std::vector<uint8_t> encrypted = cell.encrypt(plaintext);
        std::vector<uint8_t> decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted);
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (themispp::secure_cell_seal and other modes) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by themispp::gen_sym_key() (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • All modes of Secure Cell get a new initialisation API to avoid ambiguity over whether Secure Cell is secured with a passphrase or a master key (since both are effectively byte arrays in C++):
        • themispp::secure_cell_seal_with_key(master_key)
        • themispp::secure_cell_token_protect_with_key(master_key)
        • themispp::secure_cell_context_imprint_with_key(master_key)

      New API has additional benefits:

      • broader range of input types is accepted, including STL-compatible containers such as std::vector, std::array, std::span, C arrays, etc.
      • Token Protect API is much easier to use
      • Secure Cell is now thread-safe
        • Deprecated API

      The following classes are deprecated:

      • themispp::secure_cell_seal_t
      • themispp::secure_cell_token_protect_t
      • themispp::secure_cell_context_imprint_t

      They should be replaced with their _with_key counterparts. In most cases migration should be a trivial renaming but there are caveats with Token Protect mode and iterator usage. Please see #588 for details.

    • New function themispp::gen_sym_key() can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561, #576).

    • Updated test suite to test C++14 and C++17 (in addition to C++11 and C++03) (#572).

    • Breaking changes

      • get_pub_key_by_id() method of secure_session_callback_interface_t now has to return non-const vector (#540).

      Change your implementation like this:

        -const std::vector<uint8_t> get_pub_key_by_id(const std::vector<uint8_t>& id) override
        +std::vector<uint8_t> get_pub_key_by_id(const std::vector<uint8_t>& id) override
         {
             // ...
         }
      
      • Go
    • New function keys.NewSymmetricKey() can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561).

    • Improved ThemisError introspection: added error constants, numeric error codes (#622).

    • Secure Cell API updates:

      • New API with improved usability and consistent naming (#624).
        func SealWithKey(key *keys.SymmetricKey) (*SecureCellSeal, error)
            func (sc *SecureCellSeal) Encrypt(plaintext, context []byte) ([]byte, error)
            func (sc *SecureCellSeal) Decrypt(encrypted, context []byte) ([]byte, error)
      
        func TokenProtectWithKey(key *keys.SymmetricKey) (*SecureCellTokenProtect, error)
            func (sc *SecureCellTokenProtect) Encrypt(plaintext, context []byte) (encrypted, token []byte, error)
            func (sc *SecureCellTokenProtect) Decrypt(encrypted, token, context []byte) ([]byte, error)
      
        func ContextImprintWithKey(key *keys.SymmetricKey) (*SecureCellContextImprint, error)
            func (sc *SecureCellContextImprint) Encrypt(plaintext, context []byte) ([]byte, error)
            func (sc *SecureCellContextImprint) Decrypt(encrypted, context []byte) ([]byte, error)
      

      This API is less ambiguous and more convenient to use.

      • GoThemis now supports passphrase API in Seal mode (#625).
        scell, err := cell.SealWithPassphrase("secret")
        if err != nil {
                return err
        }
      
        encrypted, err := scell.Encrypt([]byte("message"), nil)
        if err != nil {
                return err
        }
      
        decrypted, err := scell.Decrypt(encrypted, nil)
        if err != nil {
                return err
        }
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (cell.SealWithKey() or cell.New()) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by keys.NewSymmetricKey() (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

    • Deprecated API

      • Run-time mode-setting for Secure Cell is deprecated (#624).

      Please use new constructors cell.SealWithKey() instead of cell.New() and cell.ModeSeal... constants. Encryption is now performed with Encrypt() method instead of Protect(). For decryption use Decrypt() instead of Unprotect().

      Old API is retained for compatibility.

      • 🍎 iOS and macOS
    • New function TSGenerateSymmetricKey() (available in Objective-C and Swift) can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561).

    • Mac Catalyst is explicitly disabled (#598).

    • Improved test coverage of platforms (#599, #607, #610, #642).

    • SwiftThemis is now tested with Swift 5 (#605).

    • iPadOS is now officially supported target for ObjCThemis (#641).

    • Secure Cell API updates:

      • New encryption/decryption API with consistent naming: encrypt and decrypt (#606).
      • Improved Token Protect API (#606):
        • Encryption results use NSData now which bridges with Swift Data directly.
        • Decryption no longer requires an intermediate TSCellTokenEncryptedData object.
      • ObjCThemis now supports passphrase API of in Seal mode (#609).

      In Swift:

        let cell = TSCellSeal(passphrase: "secret")
      
        let encrypted = try cell.encrypt("message".data(using: .utf8)!)
        let decrypted = try cell.decrypt(encrypted)
      

      In Objective-C:

        TSCellSeal *cell = [[TSCellSeal alloc] initWithPassphrase:@"secret"];
      
        NSData *encrypted = [cell encrypt:[@"message" dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
        NSData *decrypted = [cell decrypt:encrypted];
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (TSCellSeal(key: ...) or initWithKey:...) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by TSGenerateSymmetricKey() (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

    • Deprecated API

      • Secure Cell wrapData/unwrapData renamed into encrypt/decrypt (#606).

      As a result, the following methods are deprecated. There are no plans for their removal.

    • Breaking changes

      • ObjCThemis framework built by Carthage is now called objcthemis.framework (#604).

      We have renamed the Carthage framework from themis.framework to objcthemis.framework in order to improve compatibility with CocoaPods and avoid possible import conflicts with Themis Core.

      ⚠️ Please migrate to objcthemis.framework in a timely manner. themis.framework is deprecated since Themis 0.13 and will be removed in the next release due to maintainability issues.

      ℹ️ Installations via CocoaPods are not affected. If you get Themis via CocoaPods then no action is necessary.

      Migration instructions (click to reveal)

      After upgrading to Themis 0.13 and running carthage update you will notice that two Themis projects have been built:

        *** Building scheme "OpenSSL (iOS)" in OpenSSL.xcodeproj
        *** Building scheme "ObjCThemis (iOS)" in ObjCThemis.xcodeproj
        *** Building scheme "Themis (iOS)" in Themis.xcodeproj
      

      Your project is currently using β€œThemis”. In order to migrate to β€œObjCThemis” you need to do the following:

      - update `#import` statements in code (for Objective-C only)
      
      - link against `objcthemis.framework` in Xcode project
      - remove link to `themis.framework` in Xcode project
      

      Use the new syntax to import ObjCThemis in Objective-C projects:

        // NEW:
        #import <objcthemis/objcthemis.h>
      
        // old and deprecated:
        #import <themis/themis.h>
      

      The new syntax is now the same as used by CocoaPods.

      If you are using Swift, the import syntax is unchanged:

        import themis
      

      After updating imports you also need to link against the new framework (regardless of the language).

      1. Add `objcthemis.framework` to your project (can be found in `Carthage/Build/iOS` or `Mac`).
      2. For each Xcode target:
    
         1. Open **General** tab, **Frameworks and Libraries** section
         2. Drag `objcthemis.framework` there. Select _Embed & Sign_ if necessary.
         3. Remove `themis.framework` from dependencies.
    
      3. Finally, remove `themis.framework` reference from the project.
    
      Migration is complete, your project should build successfully now.
    
      We are sorry for the inconvenience.
    
      </details>
    
    • Java

      • Introduced IKey interface with accessors to raw key data (#564).
      • New class SymmetricKey can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#565).
      • It is now possible to build desktop Java with Gradle. Run ./gradlew :desktop:tasks to learn more (#633).
      • Kotlin is now officially supported language for JavaThemis (#637).
      • Fixed broken SecureSession#save and SecureSession#restore methods (#658).
      • Java source code is now ASCII-only for improved compatibility (#655).
      • Secure Cell API updates:

      • Improved Token Protect API (#634).

        • Decryption no longer requires an intermediate SecureCellData object.
        • SecureCellData can now be destructured in Kotlin (#638).
        // You can now write like this:
        val (encrypted, authToken) = cellTP.encrypt(message, context)
        
        // Instead of having to spell it out like this:
        val result = cellTP.protect(context, message)
        val encrypted = result.protectedData
        val authToken = result.additionalData
        
      • Secure Cell mode can now be selected by instantiating an appropriate interface:

      | New API | Old API | | ------- | ------- | | SecureCell.SealWithKey(key) | new SecureCell(key, SecureCell.MODE_SEAL) | | SecureCell.SealWithPassphrase(passphrase) | not available | | SecureCell.TokenProtectWithKey(key) | new SecureCell(key, SecureCell.MODE_TOKEN_PROTECT) | | SecureCell.ContextImprintWithKey(key) | new SecureCell(key, SecureCell.MODE_CONTEXT_IMPRINT) |

      • JavaThemis now supports passphrase API of in Seal mode (#635).

      In Kotlin:

        import com.cossacklabs.themis.SecureCell
      
        val cell = SecureCell.SealWithPassphrase("secret")
      
        val message = "message".toByteArray()
      
        val encrypted = cell.encrypt(message)
        val decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted)
      
        assertArrayEquals(decrypted, message)
      

      In Java:

        import com.cossacklabs.themis.SecureCell;
      
        SecureCell.Seal cell = SecureCell.SealWithPassphrase("secret");
      
        byte[] message = "message".getBytes(StandardCharsets.UTF_8);
      
        byte[] encrypted = cell.encrypt(message);
        byte[] decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted);
      
        assertArrayEquals(decrypted, message);
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing symmetric key API (SecureCell.SealWithKey(...) or new SecureCell(...)) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use symmetric key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by SymmetricKey (#565). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • Deprecated API
      • Secure Cell has received API overhaul which deprecates old API (#636).

      The following items are deprecated:

      - Constructors:
        - `new SecureCell(int mode)`
        - `new SecureCell(byte[] key)`
        - `new SecureCell(byte[] key, int mode)`
        - `new SecureCell(String password)` ⚠️ **not recommended, insecure**
        - `new SecureCell(String password, int mode)` ⚠️ **not recommended, insecure**
      - Methods:
        - `protect(byte[] key, byte[] context, byte[] data)`
        - `protect(byte[] constext, byte[] data)`
        - `protect(String password, String context, byte[] data)` ⚠️ **not recommended, insecure**
        - `protect(String context, byte[] data)`
        - `unprotect(byte[] key, byte[] context, SecureCellData protected)`
        - `unprotect(byte[] context, SecureCellData protected)`
        - `unprotect(String password, String context, SecureCellData protected)` ⚠️ **not recommended, insecure**
        - `unprotect(String context, SecureCellData protected)`
      - Constants:
        - `SecureCell.MODE_SEAL`
        - `SecureCell.MODE_TOKEN_PROTECT`
        - `SecureCell.MODE_CONTEXT_IMPRINT`
      

      Some methods are not secure when used with short passphrases, consider using new passphrase API instead. Other methods have easier to use replacements in the new API, consider using them instead.

      Deprecated API is still supported, there are no plans for its removal.

      • SecureSession methods save and restore are now deprecated (#659).

      An improved API for serialisation might appear in some next version of JavaThemis. For now, please refrain from using SecureSession#save and SecureSession#restore which may be removed in the future.

    • Node.js

      • New class SymmetricKey can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#562).
      • New makefile target make jsthemis can be used to build JsThemis from source (#618).
      • SecureCell now allows null to explicitly specify omitted encryption context (#620).
      • SecureMessage now allows null for omitted keys in sign/verify mode (#620).
      • Fixed a crash when an exception is thrown from SecureSession callback (#620).
      • Node.js v14 is now supported (#654).
      • Passphrase API support in Secure Cell (#621).

      JsThemis now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode:

      const themis = require('jsthemis')
      
      let cell = themis.SecureCellSeal.withPassphrase('secret')
      
      let encrypted = cell.encrypt(Buffer.from('message data'))
      let decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted)
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (available as themis.SecureCellSeal.withKey(...)) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by SymmetricKey (#562). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • Deprecated API
      • Secure Cell construction with new is deprecated (#621).

      Passphrase API makes it ambiguous whether a Secure Cell is initialised with a master key or a passphrase. All Secure Cell classes – SecureCellSeal, SecureCellTokenProtect, SecureCellContextImprint – get a static factory method withKey to reduce the ambiguity. Please use it instead:

        // NEW, write like this:
        let cell = themis.SecureCellSeal.withKey(secret)
      
        // old, avoid this:
        let cell = new themis.SecureCellSeal(secret)
      

      new constructors are not recommended for use but they are still supported and will always work with master keys, as they did before.

    • PHP

      • New function phpthemis_gen_sym_key() can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561).
      • Resolved PHP Composer checksum issues once and for all (#566, #567).
      • PHPThemis now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode (#594, #601).
      $encrypted = phpthemis_scell_seal_encrypt_with_passphrase('passphrase', 'message');
      $decrypted = phpthemis_scell_seal_decrypt_with_passphrase('passphrase', $encrypted);
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (phpthemis_scell_seal_{encrypt,decrypt} and other modes) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by phpthemis_gen_sym_key() (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

    • Python

      • Fixed compatibility issues on 32-bit platforms (#555).
      • New function skeygen.GenerateSymmetricKey() can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561).
      • PyThemis now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode (#596).
      from pythemis.scell import SCellSeal
      
      cell = SCellSeal(passphrase='my passphrase')
      
      encrypted = cell.encrypt(b'message data')
      decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted)
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (SCellSeal(key=...)) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by GenerateSymmetricKey() (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • Python 2 is no longer supported (#648).

      Python 2 had reached EOL on 2020-01-01.

      In fact, we are not making any changes in this release that break compatibility, but we no longer officially support it. This means that we do not run any CI tests for Python 2, and in the future we will develop code compatible only with Python 3+.

    • πŸ’Ž Ruby

      • New function Themis::gen_sym_key() can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561).
      • Secure Cell API updates (#603).
      • RbThemis now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode:
        require 'rbthemis'
      
        cell = Themis::ScellSealPassphrase.new('secret string')
      
        encrypted = cell.encrypt('message data')
        decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted)
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (Themis::Scell...) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by Themis::gen_sym_key (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • Secure Cell mode can now be selected by instantiating an appropriate subclass:

      | New API | Old API | | ------- | ------- | | Themis::ScellSeal.new(key) | Themis::Scell.new(key, Themis::Scell::SEAL_MODE) | | Themis::ScellSealPassphrase.new(passphrase) | not available | | Themis::ScellTokenProtect.new(key) | Themis::Scell.new(key, Themis::Scell::TOKEN_PROTECT_MODE) | | Themis::ScellContextImprint.new(key | Themis::Scell.new(key, Themis::Scell::CONTEXT_IMPRINT_MODE) |

      Themis::Scell class is deprecated and should be replaced with new API.

      • Token Protect mode now accepts encrypted data and token as separate arguments instead of requiring an array:
        decrypted = cell.decrypt([encrypted, token], context) # old
        decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted, token, context)   # new
      

      (Arrays are still accepted for compatibility but this API is deprecated.)

    • Rust

      • New object themis::keys::SymmetricKey can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561, #631).
      • Significantly reduced compilation time by removing bindgen crate from dependencies (#626).
      • Bindgen 0.54.1 or later is now required for RustThemis development (#664).
      • Passphrase API support in Secure Cell (#630).

      RustThemis now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode:

      use themis::secure_cell::SecureCell;
      
      let cell = SecureCell::with_passphase("secret")?.seal();
      
      let encrypted = cell.encrypt(b"message data")?;
      let decrypted = cell.decrypt(&encrypted)?;
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (available as SecureCell::with_key(...)) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by themis::keys::SymmetricKey (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • Miscellaneous minor improvements in code quality (#571, #591).
    • WebAssembly

      • New class SymmetricKey can be used to generate symmetric keys for Secure Cell (#561).
      • Fixed an issue with webpack Terser plugin (#568).
      • Updated Emscripten toolchain to the latest version (#550, #569, #602, #653).
      • Updated embedded BoringSSL and other dependencies to the latest versions (#608, #643).
      • Node.js v14 is now supported (#654).
      • Passphrase API support in Secure Cell (#616).

      WasmThemis now supports passphrase API of Secure Cell in Seal mode:

      const themis = require('wasm-themis')
      
      let cell = themis.SecureCellSeal.withPassphrase('secret')
      
      let encrypted = cell.encrypt(Buffer.from('message data'))
      let decrypted = cell.decrypt(encrypted)
      

      You can safely and securely use short, human-readable passphrases as strings with this new API.

      Existing master key API (available as themis.SecureCellSeal.withKey(...)) should not be used with passphrases or passwords. Use master key API with symmetric encryption keys, such as generated by SymmetricKey (#561). Use passphrase API with human-readable passphrases.

      • Deprecated API
      • Secure Cell construction with new is deprecated (#616).

      Passphrase API makes it ambiguous whether a Secure Cell is initialised with a master key or a passphrase. All Secure Cell classes – SecureCellSeal, SecureCellTokenProtect, SecureCellContextImprint – get a static factory method withKey to reduce the ambiguity. Please use it instead:

        // NEW, write like this:
        let cell = themis.SecureCellSeal.withKey(secret)
      
        // old, avoid this:
        let cell = new themis.SecureCellSeal(secret)
      

      new constructors are not recommended for use but they are still supported and will always work with master keys, as they did before.

  • v0.12.2

    December 19, 2019

    Fixed an issue in WasmThemis which caused an error when packaging with webpack (#568).

  • v0.12.1

    September 26, 2019
  • v0.12.0

    September 25, 2019

    TL;DR:

    • βž• Added WasmThemis to support WebAssembly (works with Electron and Node.js);
    • βž• added experimental support for Windows (using MSYS2 compiler and NSIS installer);
    • βž• added support of Go Modules;
    • βž• added package for ThemisPP;
    • βž• added support for Node.js v12 LTS (in addition to v10 and v8) in jsThemis;
    • βž• added extra safety checks and fixes for tricky bugs.

    πŸ’₯ Breaking changes:

    • 🐧 Linux: when building from sources, the default installation path of Themis Core library has been changed from /usr to /usr/local. If you’re affected, read the instructions on how to make a clean upgrade below.
    • Go: some of GoThemis APIs have been renamed to comply with Go naming convention (old API are marked as deprecated and will be removed in the next release). If you’re using Go – please switch to new functions.
    • πŸ’Ž Ruby: deprecated rubythemis gem has been completely removed in favour of rbthemis.

    Code:

    • Core

      • Soter (low-level security core used by Themis)

      Improved security and code quality, implemented better handling of secrets and memory management. These changes decrease the chance of potential memory leaks.

      • Introduced new internal function: soter_wipe(). It can be used to securely wipe sensitive data from memory after it's no longer needed. All Themis cryptosystems now use this new API (#488).
      • Improved usage and error handling of OpenSSL/BoringSSL PRNGs. Thank you, @veorq for bringing up this issue (#485).
      • Improved memory safety and fixed potential corner-case issues in OpenSSL/BoringSSL usage. Thanks, @outspace for identifying these issues (#501, #524, #525, #535).
      • Key generation
      • Improved key validity checks across all Themis cryptosystems. Now it’s harder to use wrong keys or misuse them (#486).
      • Improved error handling for EC key generator that could produce an invalid public key without returning an error. Thanks, @vixentael for finding this issue (#500).
      • Secure Cell
      • Improved handling of edge cases with large data buffers (#496, #497).
      • Improved performance of Secure Cell's encryption/decryption (#496).
      • Library ABI
      • Themis shared libraries now have a formal ABI version. This ensures that no compatibility issues arise if we ever need to introduce breaking changes in the ABI (#454).
      • Removed private symbols from public export lists. Themis has been accidentally exporting various private utility functions. Private functions not intended for public use are now hidden (#458, #472).
      • Installation & packaging
      • Themis now installs to /usr/local by default when building from source on Linux (#448).

      This may be a breaking change if your system has non-standard precedence rules. If you install Themis from source code directly, please do a clean upgrade the following way:

        make uninstall PREFIX=/usr
        make install   PREFIX=/usr/local
      

      Please consider using binary repositories to install Themis. If your system or package manager is not supported yet, please let us know via dev@cossacklabs.com.

      • Themis packages now support multiarch installations (#512).

      Multiarch enables parallel installation of 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the library. This is particularly important on CentOS where some tools like pkg-config would fail to locate Themis due to non-standard installation path.

      • Updated Makefile to support a number of standard GNU variables like libdir (#453, #455).
      • Improved accuracy of package dependencies to make sure you don't have to install anything manually after installing Themis from package repositories (#446).
      • NSIS installer is now available for Windows. To build NSIS installer, use make nsis_installer command in MSYS2 environment. You can read more about MSYS2 target here (#474).
      • Dependency updates
      • Embedded BoringSSL submodule has been updated to the latest upstream version (#528).
      • Only the necessary parts of embedded BoringSSL are now built, leading to 2x build speedup (#447).
      • Other changes
      • Miscellaneous improvements and cleanups in the Makefile (#450, #451, #452, #459, #523, #527).
      • Core libraries are now linked dynamically to test binaries (#460).
    • Android

      • Embedded BoringSSL submodule has been updated to the latest upstream version (#528).
      • Only the necessary parts of embedded BoringSSL are now built, leading to 2x build speedup (#447).
    • C++

      Use

      • libthemispp-dev for Debian and Ubuntu,
      • libthemispp-devel for CentOS.
    • Go

      • Breaking changes
      • Some APIs have been renamed to conform with the Go naming conventions (#424).

      The old names are now deprecated and scheduled for removal in the next release. Please migrate to using the new names when you upgrade.

      | Old API | New API | | -------------------------------------- | -------------------------- | | cell.CELL_MODE_SEAL | cell.ModeSeal | | compare.COMPARE_MATCH | compare.Match | | keys.KEYTYPE_EC | keys.TypeEC | | session.STATE_ESTABLISHED | session.StateEstablished | | (*session.SecureSession) GetRemoteId | GetRemoteID |

      • GoThemis is now compatible with Go 1.11 modules starting with this release. For example, you are now able to pin a specific version of GoThemis in your projects (#505).
    • 🍎 iOS, macOS

      • Example code and projects for Objective-C and Swift are now up-to-date, cleaned up, and modernised (#463, #467)

    • Java

      • JNI wrapper for desktop Java does not require a separate installation of Themis Core from now on (#450).
    • Node.js

      • JsThemis now supports latest Node.js v12 LTS (in addition to v10 and v8) (#499, #502).
      • JsThemis can now be used on Windows provided that Themis Core is installed to C:\Program Files\Themis (#475).
      • Improved error reporting when keys are misused with Secure Message objects (#465).
    • PHP

      • Updated PHP installer to use the latest Composer version (#519).
    • πŸ’Ž Ruby

      • Breaking changes
      • rubythemis gem has been completely removed after being deprecated in Themis 0.11. Please use require 'rbthemis' in your projects (#508).
    • Rust

      • Minor internal code style modernizations (#466).
    • WebAssembly

      WasmThemis supports the full functionality of other Themis wrappers: Secure Cell, Secure Message, Secure Session, and Secure Comparator. WasmThemis package is available via npm as wasm-themis, sample code can be found in docs/examples/js, and the How-To guide is available on the documentation server (#457, #461, #462, #473, #482, #489, #490, #491, #492,#494, #495, #498, #507, #513).

      • WasmThemis is tested with current Node.js LTS versions, popular Web browsers, and Electron framework. It is also tested for compatibility with other Themis wrappers (#509, #510, #511).
    • 🏁 Windows

      • It is now possible to compile Themis Core for Windows using MSYS2 environment. See the instructions here (#469).
      • NSIS installer is now provided for the distribution of Themis on Windows. It's compatible with the new MSYS2 builds (#474).
      • It is now possible to compile JsThemis on Windows, given that Themis Core is installed (#475).
      • Miscellaneous compatibility fixes should make it possible to compile Themis Core with Microsoft Visual Studio. This platform does not have full official support yet, though (#470, #471).

    πŸ“„ Docs:

    • πŸ—„ Themis GitHub Wiki is being deprecated. Please find the latest documentation for Themis on Cossack Labs Documentation Server. If you're used to using the Themis Wiki or have bookmarked a few pages for further use, don't worry - its pages and table of contents stay where they were, but each will now link to its corresponding Cossack Labs Documentation Server counterpart.

    • Code of Conduct has been introduced to make sure that Themis project has a welcoming environment (#518).

    • πŸ‘Œ Improved and updated installation guides for numerous languages and platforms.

    Infrastructure:

  • v0.11.2

    June 25, 2019

    πŸš‘ This is not a real release, but a hotfix.

    🍎 This tag is created for Themis Carthage only. The only changes are inside Cartfile and affect Themis Carthage users (iOS/macOS).

  • v0.11.1

    April 01, 2019

    πŸš€ 0.11.1, April 1st 2019

    TL;DR: Rust-Themis can now be installed entirely from packages (repositories and crates.io), without building anything from source.

    Code:

    Rust

    πŸ‘Œ Improvements in lookup of core Themis library (#444)

    Minor changes in dependencies (#443)

    Infrastructure:

    • πŸ›  Minor fixes in packaging process (#442)
  • v0.11.0

    March 28, 2019

    πŸš€ 0.11.0, March 28th 2019

    TL;DR: Added Rust Themis, added Carthage distribution for iOS and Maven distribution for Android. Improved Secure Message API and propagated it to all our language wrappers.

    βœ… We found that Themis is now recommended by OWASP as data encryption library for mobile platforms.

    πŸ’₯ Breaking changes: We renamed rubythemis to rbthemis as a beginning of a tradition of gentle deprecations, with timely warning of all the users that can potentially be affected. We removed themis_version() function that allowed checking Themis' version at run-time (with no replacement function).

    Code:

    Core

    πŸ›  Fixes in Soter (low-level security core used by Themis):

    - 
    

    πŸ›  Fixed possible null pointer deference caused by the misusage of short-circuit evaluation. Huge thanks to @movie-travel-code for pointing out (#315, #314).

    - 
    

    πŸ›  Fixed crash in Secure Message when RSA keys are used incorrectly (swapped or empty) – a shoutout for @ilammy and @secumod for fixing this (#334).

    - 
    

    πŸ›  Fixed issue with RSA key generator silently truncating private keys – our gratitude going out to @ilammy and @secumod again (#335).

    - 
    

    πŸ›  Fixed crash that occured on re-using Secure Comparator with BoringSSL – thanks to @ilammy and @secumod for this fix (#347).

    - 
    

    πŸ›  Fixed overflow during Secure Cell decryption in Seal mode - thanks to @ilammy and his skills in fuzz testing (#367).

    - 
    

    πŸ‘Œ Improved the test suite to catch more corner cases, including with OpenSSL-specific issues (#323, #319).

    Secure Session

    - 
    

    βž• Added additional safety tests for Secure Session: return error if clientID is empty (thanks @deszip for asking tough questions and mis-using clientID) (#386).

    - 
    

    Described thread safety code practices when using Secure Session.

    Secure Message

    - 
    

    ⚑️ Updated Secure Message API: divided the wrap function into encrypt and sign, and the unwrap function into decrypt and verify. The new API has more intuitive naming and should be harder to misuse, with encrypt/decrypt and sign/verify API clearly named and separated.

    A common mistake with the old API was that users could accidentally use sign/verify API instead of encryption because they didn't provide a private key. The new API features more strict checks and prevents this kind of mistake.

    This change doesn't affect the language wrappers you are using, so no code changes are required from you.

    πŸ“š Documentation for the new API calls is available in the Wiki documentation and for each language separately (in their Howtos).

    (#389).

    - 
    

    πŸ›  Fixed a potential memory leak in Secure Message encryption and decryption (#398).

    Code quality

    - 
    

    Cleaned up circular dependencies in header files. This change has made the code cleaner and the compilation time faster (#392).

    - 
    

    πŸ‘Œ Improved code quality by fixing warnings from various compiler flags (-Wall -Wextra -Wformat-security -Wnull-dereference -Wshift-overflow and so on) (#377).

    - 
    

    βœ… Formatted the code using clang-format and clang-tidy, added automated formatting for core and tests (#418, #399, #397, #396, #395).

    Other changes

    - 
    

    πŸ‘Œ Improved and refactored our Great Makefile to be more stable, more user-friendly, and to support OS-specific issues (#417, #413, #348, #346, #345, #343, #321).

    - 
    

    βœ‚ Removed themis_version() function and all related API for querying Themis and Soter versions at run-time. There is no replacement for it and this is obviously a breaking change (#388).

    Rust

    Introduced Rust Themis wrapper, all work done by brilliant @ilammy!

    πŸ“¦ Rust Themis supports the same functionality as other Themis wrappers: Secure Cell, Secure Message, Secure Session, and Secure Comparator. Rust Themis package is available through crates.io, examples are stored in docs/examples/rust, the HowTo guide is available in Wiki.

    (#419, #405, #403, #390, #383, #382, #381, #380, #376, #375, #374, #373, #372, #365, #363, #362, #358, #357, #356, #353, #349, #340).

    🍎 iOS and macOS

    βž• Added Carthage support. Now users can add Themis to their Cartfile using github "cossacklabs/themis".

    πŸ“„ More details available in Objective-C Howto and Swift Howto on wiki. Example projects available in docs/examples/objc and docs/examples/swift/ folders.

    (#432, #430, #428, #427).

    βž• Added BoringSSL support, now users can select which crypto-engine they want to include. This change affects only Themis CocoaPod: users can add Themis based on BoringSSL to their Podfile using pod 'themis/themis-boringssl' (#351, #331, #330, #329).

    βž• Added bitcode support. This affects only Themis CocoaPod that uses OpenSSL – thanks @deszip and @popaaaandrei (#407, #355, #354).

    βž• Added compatibility for Swift frameworks. Now Themis can be used directly from Swift without Bridging header file, kudos to @popaaaandrei for pointing on this out (#416, #415).

    ⚑️ Updated code to use the latest Secure Message API (see description of core changes above). This change doesn't affect user-facing code so no code changes are required from users (#393).

    ⚑️ Updated error codes and error messages for all crypto systems, now errors and logs are more user-friendly and understandable (#394, #393).

    πŸ‘Œ Improved code quality here and there (#317).

    Dropped feature flag SECURE_COMPARATOR_ENABLED because it's redundant: Secure Comparator is enabled by default (#429).

    🍎 macOS specific

    • Added Homebrew support for Themis Core. Now users can install Themis Core library using brew tap cossacklabs/tap && brew update && brew install libthemis. This is useful when you're developing on macOS.

    🍎 More details can be found in the Installation guide.

    C++

    πŸ‘Œ Improved Secure Session memory behavior (now users can move and copy Secure Session objects and callbacks) (#370, #369).

    πŸ‘ Allowed to link ThemisPP as header-only library by adding "inline" functions – thanks @deszip for pushing us. Check for detailed instructions in C++ wiki (#371).

    Added support of smart pointer constructors for Secure Session, now users should use std::shared_ptr<secure_session_callback_interface_t> constructor (#378).

    βž• Added functions for key validation: now you can check if keypairs are valid before using it for encryption/decryption (#389).

    ⚑️ Updated test suite to test C++03 and C++11 (#379).

    ⚑️ Updated error codes and error messages for all crypto systems, now errors and logs are more user-friendly and understandable (#385).

    Formatted code using clang-format rules and implemented some clang-tidy recommendations (#410, #404).

    Java

    ⚑️ Updated Secure Message API: separated function wrap into encrypt and sign, and function unwrap into decrypt and verify. Old functions are still available, but will be deprecated eventually (#389).

    Significantly improved Themis usage examples for Desktop Java - thanks to @Dimdron #3.

    Formatted JNI code using clang-format rules and implemented some clang-tidy recommendations (#420).

    πŸ“„ Docs:

    Described the new Secure Message API: how we divided the wrap function into encrypt and sign, and the unwrap function β€” into decrypt and verify to make it more obvious for the users.

    Described thread safety code practices when using Secure Session.

    πŸ‘Œ Improved installation guides for numerous languages.

    Infrastructure:

    βž• Added Homebrew support for Themis Core. Now users can install Themis Core libraby using brew tap cossacklabs/tap && brew update && brew install libthemis. This is useful when you're developing on macOS. More details can be found in the Installation guide.

    βž• Added installation guide on using Docker container as a building environment for Themis: if you can't download Themis Core from packages, feel free to use Docker container for this.

  • v0.10.5

    March 21, 2019
  • v0.10.0

    February 06, 2018

    TL;DR: Multi-platform, multi-language compatibility improved.

    ⚠️ Incompatibility issues:

    ⬆️ If you are using Themis on x64 systems, consider upgrading every Themis library/wrapper you were using to 0.10.0. Incompatibility issues may arise between previous Themis versions and 0.10.0 on x64 machines (#279).

    πŸ’Ž Rubythemis has breaking changes for Secure Cell Token Protect mode (#281). We added checks for other language wrappers to make sure this won't happen again (#282, #283).

    Check the Migration Guide for more details.

    πŸ“„ Docs:

    Infrastructure:

    • Added support of Ubuntu 17.10.
    • Removed support of Ubuntu 16.10 and Ubuntu 17.04 (no more compiled binaries for these OSs now).
    • βž• Added CLI utils for easy testing of Secure Cell, Secure Message, and Key generation on local machine. Available for Python, Ruby, Go, NodeJS, and PHP. Check the Console Utils guide for more details and usage description/guide.
    • βž• Added Integration test suit for the majority of the available language wrappers, which was the catalyst for many fixes in this release.
    • βž• Added support of CircleCI 2.0 with multiple workflows. This allows testing each language wrapper and integrations between them easily and quickly (#295, #299).
