I wish you a happy and prosperous new year 2017. Thanks for visiting my blog in 2016 and thanks for your feedback in various forms like comments and discussions. In 2016 I published several articles on this blog and I plan to continue writing about my activities in the area of protocols and testing also in 2017. Before I start with new blog posts in the next weeks, I give a short summary of 2016.

Bouncy Castle Java API Release 1.55 now available

This release sees further work on the post-quantum provider with the addition of the NewHope (March 2016 version) key exchange algorithm and the SPHINCS signature algorithm. The McEliece implementation has also been revised and now has KeyFactory implementation for it as well. The DANE API has been updated to reflect the latest standard changes. SHA-3 support has been added for HMAC as well as for the DSA, ECDSA, DDSA, and ECDDSA signature algorithms. SHA-3 support has also been added for RSA signatures and OAEP encryption. Support has been added for the GOST R34.11-2012 message digest as well. The TSP API now supports millisecond resolution in time-stamps and TLS supports RFC 7685 and ECDH_anon key exchange. The CMS password recipient generator now supports PRFs other than SHA-1 as well. In terms of bug fixes: issues with cloning of BLAKE digests, an occasional error in the Poly1305 calculator, UserNotice issues with empty sequences, and validation issues with time-stamp requests containing extensions have all been fixed. CRMF now recognises when non-default OAEP parameters are used and issues around the encoding of parameters for ECIES/IES have also been addressed.
Further details on other additions and bug fixes can be found in the release notes file accompanying the release or at https://www.bouncycastle.org/releasenotes.html

As always we are grateful to the people and organisations who have contributed/donated to the project and you can find the updated list at https://www.bouncycastle.org/contributors.html We would also like to thank holders of Crypto Workshop support contracts once again we were able to contribute additional time back to this release through left over consulting time provided as part of the support agreements.
