DTLS is not sending alert in case of BAD CCS

Raja ashok

Hi All,


Looks like there is a typo mistake in dtls1_read_bytes, because of this alert is not send for bad CCS.


In dtls1_read_bytes, incase of bad change cipher spec we are setting alert code (SSL_AD_ILLEGAL_PARAMETER) to variable “i” and doing “goto err”. I feel we are trying to send alert in this case, so we need to set the alert in “al” and do “goto f_err”.


In case of TLS we are sending alert.


Note : I am referring 1.0.2.k version of OpenSSL
