The releases of Tectia Client, Server, ConnectSecure and MFT Events 6.3.4 focus on fixing bugs, but in addition ssh-keygen-g3 tool has been updated (see more details below under New Features).

New Features

This concerns Tectia Client, Server and ConnectSecure.

  • All platforms: ssh-keygen-g3 is now able to export private keys in OpenSSH format.

Bug Fixes

Tectia Client

  • All Platforms: Files no longer fail to be transferred to local destinations by using UNC paths.

  • All Platforms: SSH Tectia Broker no longer crashes when connection to the socks listener gets disconnected right after establishing the connection.

  • All Platforms: SSH Tectia Broker is now able to read the newly OpenSSH keys using the new AES encryption format.

  • Documentation: The company name changed from Tectia Corporation to SSH Communications Security Corporation. This has been updated to the documentation.

  • Documentation: Specified that ssh-keygen-g3, when generating keys in FIPS mode, the RSA key length should be between 1024 and 16384 bits.

  • All platforms: Sftpg3 no longer stops executing if reading ssh_sftp_batch_file fails in some situations.

  • All platforms: Rewrote the way the real path is found for a given relative path. Previously, if the user did not have permissions to access the current directory it was not possible to start the Tectia applications.

  • All Platforms: Tectia server no longer busyloops when trying to access a certificate via pkcs#11 version 2.30 interface.

  • All platforms: Fixed the -i option from ssh-keygen-g3. Now, when the key specified by the -i option does not exist, the command reports the error properly.

Tectia Server

  • AIX: Reloading the configuration in SSH Tectia Server will no longer hang.

  • Windows: Rewrote the code in the "Old-style" password authentication plugin when handling local accounts without password. SSH Tectia Server denies the login of those users, but if the account is forced to change password, SSH Tectia Server will allow to change the password.

  • Solaris 11: Disabled BSM Audits in Solaris 11, because the auditing API has changed in Solaris 11. BSM Audits in Solaris 11 will be enabled in a newer maintenance release.

  • All Platforms: Server authentication no longer fails when a client is configured to use certificates and a plain host key of the same server is already stored in the repository.

  • Windows: The Windows SSH Tectia Server process "ssh-shell.exe", which is used in ssh terminal access, will no longer crash when the SSH Tectia Server terminal mode is Stream and that specific terminal connection is heavily stressed generating lots of output.

  • Windows: When the state of the "Enable password cache" checkbox is changed in the first authentication element of the Tectia Server Configuration GUI, the other checkboxes of the possible other profiles are no longer changed.

  • Documentation: Tectia Client/Server Product Description has corrections in sections Tectia Solution Components, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), and in chapter Authentication.

  • Documentation: The company name changed from Tectia Corporation to SSH Communications Security Corporation. This has been updated to the documentation.

  • Documentation: Corrected a release notes entry from Tectia Server 6.3.1, which was stating that the permissions required for the following files: .i18n_icu.dll .icudt40.dll .icuuc40.dll were "read and write". The correct permissions are "read and execute".

  • Documentation: Specified that ssh-keygen-g3, when generating keys in FIPS mode, the RSA key length should be between 1024 and 16384 bits.

  • Documentation: Tectia Client/Server Product Description has corrections in sections Tectia Solution Components, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), and in chapter Authentication.

  • All platforms: Rewrote the way the real path is found for a given relative path. Previously, if the user did not have permissions to access the current directory it was not possible to start the Tectia applications.

  • Windows: Added IPv6 support for RADIUS authentication.

  • All Platforms: Tectia server no longer busyloops when trying to access a certificate via pkcs#11 version 2.30 interface.

  • Windows: Password cache is again configurable via GUI on screens with vertical resolution of 768 pixels.

  • All platforms: Fixed the -i option from ssh-keygen-g3. Now, when the key specified by the -i option does not exist, the command reports the error properly.

Tectia ConnectSecure

  • All Platforms: Files no longer fail to be transferred to local destinations by using UNC paths.

  • All Platforms: SSH Tectia Broker no longer crashes when connection to the socks listener gets disconnected right after establishing the connection.

  • All Platforms: SSH Tectia Broker is now able to read the newly OpenSSH keys using the new AES encryption format.

  • Documentation: Tectia Client/Server Product Description has corrections in sections Tectia Solution Components, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), and in chapter Authentication.

  • Documentation: The company name changed from Tectia Corporation to SSH Communications Security Corporation. This has been updated to the documentation.

  • Documentation: Specified that ssh-keygen-g3, when generating keys in FIPS mode, the RSA key length should be between 1024 and 16384 bits.

  • Documentation: Added the requirement that for being able to compile and use SFT Java API on the supported 64-bit operating systems, the Java installation should be 32-bit.

  • All platforms: Sftpg3 no longer stops executing if reading ssh_sftp_batch_file fails in some situations.

  • All platforms: Rewrote the way the real path is found for a given relative path. Previously, if the user did not have permissions to access the current directory it was not possible to start the Tectia applications.

  • All Platforms: Tectia server no longer busyloops when trying to access a certificate via pkcs#11 version 2.30 interface.
