ntbtls: TLS handshake error
Closed, InvalidPublic


NTBTLS (master and 0.1.2 as well) fails like:

$ ./ntbtls-cli --debug 1 www.gnupg.org
ntbtls-cli: connected to 'www.gnupg.org' port 443
ntbtls-cli: starting handshake
ntbtls: server_hello, chosen version: [3:3]
ntbtls: server_hello, chosen ciphersuite: 49200 (TLS-ECDHE-RSA-WITH-AES-256-GCM-SHA384)
ntbtls: peer certificate: chain length=2
ntbtls: pk_verify returned: success
ntbtls: fetch_input returned: End of file <TLS>
ntbtls: read_record returned: End of file <TLS>
ntbtls-cli: handshake error: End of file <TLS>
ntbtls-cli: handshake failed

I encountered this issue on February in Brussels, but I didn't reproduce in Dusseldorf.
Today, in Japan, I encountered it again.
I'm going to make reproducible minimum test case.

Because it also fails in 0.1.2 (with no GCM support), it seems that it's not GCM thing.

It seems it's a falure of ECDH.
I ran a server by s_server and saw following error:

$ openssl s_server -key key.pem -cert cert.pem -accept 44330 -www

It was a problem of libgcrypt master.
As of today's libgcrypt rC60c179b59e53: sexp: Extend gcry_sexp_extract_param with new format specifiers., it works fine.

I think I fixed a memory leak on error but no other changes for old code except that the array to old the args now takes void* and not gcry_mpi_t - which does not make a difference.
