Change Logs

* Mon Sep 06 2021 Michael Vetter <>
- Update to 1.22c:
  * Fix invalid size (#302)
  * Test aborted connections (#285)
* Wed Aug 25 2021 Michael Vetter <>
- Update to 1.22b:
  * do not timeout TCP connections (fix #300)
  * remove obsolete usage string and added lost version option
  * be more defensive when allocating and extending gap
* Wed Aug 18 2021 Michael Vetter <>
- Update to 1.22:
  * sslh-select now supports UDP protocols.
    Probes specified in the `protocols`
    configuration entry are tried on incoming packets,
    TCP or UDP, and forwarded based on the input
    protocol (an incoming TCP connection will be
    forwarded as TCP, and same with UDP).
    This has been tested with DNS as shown in udp.cfg:
    incoming packets that contain my domain name are
    assumed to be a DNS request and forwarded
    accordingly. Note this could cause problems if
    combined with incoming TLS with SNI.  UDP clients
    and servers need to agree on the IPv4/IPv6 they use:
    use the same protocol on all sides! Often, this
    means explicitely using 'ip4-localhost'.
    UDP sender-receiver pairs (connections, so to speak)
    are kept for 60s, which can be changed with
    `udp_timeout` in the configuration.
  * Added probes for UDP protocols QUICK and Teamspeak.
  * Added probes for syslog protocol.
  * sslh-select refactored to change linear searches
  through connections to linear searches through
  * Fixed a libconfig call to support libconfig 1.7.3.
  * Added symbol to support libconfig 1.4.9, still in
  use in CentOS7.
  * Warn about unknown settings in the configuration
  * Added per-protocol `transparent` option. sslh-fork
  drops the capability after creating the server-side
  transparent socket. Transparent now uses CAP_NET_RAW
  instead of CAP_NET_ADMIN.
  * Removed compile-time option to use POSIX regex. Now
  regex must be PCRE2 (Perl-Compatible). This was in
  fact the case since v1.21, as PCRE are used to parse
  the config file.
- Drop sslh-nopcreposix.patch:
  pcre2 is a hard dependency now
* Fri Apr 09 2021 Cristian Rodríguez <>
- remove unused tcpd-devel dependency
* Fri Apr 09 2021 Cristian Rodríguez <>
- sslh-nopcreposix.patch: Using pcreposix is the wrong thing
  to do on any glibc based system, avoid linking it.
* Fri Jul 31 2020 Michael Vetter <>
- Update to 1.21c:
  * Removed support for 'ssl' and fix a related segfault bug.
* Mon Jul 20 2020 Michael Vetter <>
- Update to 1.21b:
  * Moved configuration and command-line management to
    use conf2struct. Changes are:
  - command line option <-F|--config> no longer defaults to
  /etc/sslh.cfg, so you have to specify it explicitly.
  - command line option <-v|--verbose> takes a mandatory
  integer parameter
  * Changed exit code for illegal command line parameter
  from 1 to 6 (for testing purposes)
* Mon Jul 13 2020 Michael Vetter <>
- Update to 1.21:
  * Added TCP_FASTOPEN support for client sockets (if
    tfo_ok is specified in their configuration) and for
    listenint socket, if all client protocols support it.
  * Added 'minlength' option to skip a probe if less
    than that many bytes have been received (mostly for
  * Moved configuration and command-line management to
    use conf2struct. Hopefully this should be transparent
    to users.
  * Update Let's Encrypt entry in example.cfg for tls-alpn-01
    challenges; tls-sni-* challenges are now deprecated.
  * Log to syslog even if in foreground (for people who
    use fail2ban)
  * Use syslog_facility: "none" to disable syslog
Version: 1.20-bp152.1.11

  * add var has_systemd
* Tue Jul 19 2016
- Update to 1.18
  * Added USELIBPCRE to make use of regex engine optional.
  * Added support for RFC4366 SNI and RFC7301 ALPN
    (Travis Burtrum)
  * Changed connection log to include the name of the probe that
  * Changed configuration file format: 'probe' field is
    no longer required, 'name' field can now contain
    'tls' or 'regex', with corresponding options (see
  * Added 'log_level' option to each protocol, which
    allows to turn off generation of log at each
  * Added 'keepalive' option.
  Version 1.17
  * Support RFC5952-style IPv6 addresses, e.g. [::]:443.
  * Transparant proxy support for FreeBSD  (Ruben van Staveren)
  * Using -F with no argument will try
    /etc/sslh/sslh.cfg and then /etc/sslh.cfg as configuration files.
    (argument to -F can no longer be separated from the option by a space,
    e.g. must be -Ffoo.cfg)
  * Call setgroups() before setgid() (fixes potential
    privilege escalation) (Lars Vogdt)
  * Use portable way of getting modified time for OSX support (Aaron
  * Example configuration for fail2ban (Every Mouw)
- Dropped missing-call-to-setgroups-before-setuid.patch, included
* Thu Dec 18 2014
- Added filepath-in-systemd-service.patch to point to correct
  patch in systemd service file
* Tue Mar 25 2014
- update to 1.16:
  + Probes made more resilient, to incoming data
    containing NULLs. Also made them behave properly
    when receiving too short packets to probe on the
    first incoming packet.
    (Ondrej Kuzník)
  + Libcap support: Keep only CAP_NET_ADMIN if started
    as root with transparent proxying and dropping
    priviledges (enable USELIBCAP in Makefile). This
    avoids having to mess with filesystem capabilities.
    (Sebastian Schmidt/yath)
  + Fixed bugs related to getpeername that would cause
    sslh to quit erroneously (getpeername can return
    actual errors if connections are dropped before
    getting to getpeername).
  + Set IP_FREEDBIND if available to bind to addresses
    that don't yet exist.
- compile with libcap support
- added missing-call-to-setgroups-before-setuid.patch
- removed patches fixed upstream:
  + sslh-asprintf.patch
  + sslh-chroot.patch
* Sun Dec 22 2013
- added /etc/conf.d/sslh
  now the service actually starts when using systemd
* Wed Dec 11 2013
- update to 1.15:
  + Added --transparent option for transparent proxying. See README for iptables magic and capability management.
  + Fixed bug in sslh-select: if number of opened file descriptor became bigger than FD_SETSIZE, bad things would happen.
  + Fixed bug in sslh-select: if socket dropped while defered_data was present, sslh-select would crash.
  + Increased FD_SETSIZE for Cygwin, as the default 64 is too low for even moderate load.
    Thanks to Arnaud Gendre and Michael K. Avanessian for helping with investigation of the last three points.
* Sun Jan 06 2013
- update to 1.14:
  + Corrected OpenVPN probe to support pre-shared secret
    mode (OpenVPN port-sharing code is... wrong). Thanks
    to Kai Ellinger for help in investigating and
  + Added an actual TLS/SSL probe.
  + Added configurable --on-timeout protocol
  + Added a --anyprot protocol probe (equivalent to what
  - -ssl was).
  + Makefile respects the user's compiler and CFLAG
    choices (falling back to the current values if
    undefined), as well as LDFLAGS.
    (Michael Palimaka)
  + Added "After" and "KillMode" to systemd.sslh.service
    (Thomas Weißschuh).
- use upstream sslh.systemd.service instead of own one
* Thu Aug 23 2012
- update to 1.13b:
  + WARNING: Options changed, you'll need to update your start-up
    scripts! Log format changed, you'll need to update log
    processing scripts
  + Added support for configuration file.
  + New protocol probes can be defined using regular expressions that
    match the first packet sent by the client.
  + Added HTTP probe.
  + Now supports IPv6 throughout (both on listening and forwarding)
  + Logs now contain IPv6 addresses, local forwarding address, and
    resolved names (unless --numeric is specified).
  + Introduced long options.
  + Bind to multiple addresses with multiple -p options.
  + Added -o "OpenVPN" and OpenVPN probing and support.
  + Added -f "foreground" option.
- adapted init script to new options
- added option for openVPN target address in sysconfig file
  For openSUSE > 12.1:
- added config file /etc/default/sslh - but this needs to be enabled/
  added in SSLH_OPTS="" in /etc/sysconfig/sslh for now as the
  sysconfig file already contains all variables
- added systemd file
