Changes in This Release

Summary

  • Support for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
    • Central Server, Security Server and Configuration Proxy can be migrated from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to the latest Ubuntu 18.04 LTS version.
    • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will quit receiving maintenance updates in Q2/2019 which is why migration is required.
    • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS support includes installation packages, and instructions for fresh install and migration from Ubuntu 14.
  • Security Server provides built-in support for Finnish data classification system level ST IV.
    • The default security configuration has been updated according to the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority's requirements.
  • Messagelog time-stamping has been improved so that messagelog records are always verifiable regardless of the number of processed messages and Security Server’s load.
  • Security Server's security and maintainability is improved replacing customised and outdated 3rd party components with the latest off-the-shelf versions of the components.
    • In addition, maintainability is improved removing unsupported features and dead code from the codebase.

Issue IDTypeSummary
XRDDEV-8Fix

Replace an outdated custom version of Apache CXF's WSDL validator with the latest factory version. The fix reduces technical debt.

N.B.! The change may affect adding and/or refreshing services (WSDL documents) on Security Server. The new version of the validator might reject some WSDL documents that the previous version accepted.

XRDDEV-10FixReplace outdated Logback logging module by more robust Slf4jRequestLog module. The fix reduces technical debt.
XRDDEV-29Improvement

Update cryptographic strength of key exchange to 128bits on communication between Security Servers, and operational monitoring daemon and client. Introduce whitelist setting to configure accepted cipher suites on Security Server. The change is backwards compatible - when Security Server version >= 6.19.0 communicates with a version <= 6.18.0, the old cryptographic strength of key exchange (< 128 bits) is used.

After the improvement Security Server meets Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority's (FICORA) technical requirements for transferring ST IV classified information (on Finnish data classification system).

N.B.! Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL7) supports the new configuration starting from RHEL 7.3 - support for the new configuration requires RHEL 7.3 or newer.

XRDDEV-60Improvement

Add a script and related documentation for re-configuring the IP addresses of Central Server nodes in a high-availability (HA) cluster.

XRDDEV-62ImprovementLog a warning in Security Server's proxy.log when the amount of timestamped records reaches 70% of timestamp-records-limit. The warning indicates to Security Server administrator that the value of timestamp-records-limit should be increased.
XRDDEV-86FixStore X-Road version information in a platform independent way. Version information is available for X-Road components even if installation packages have not been installed, e.g. running Security Server in a Docker container.
XRDDEV-94NewCreate Security Server installation packages for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
XRDDEV-95NewCreate Central Server installation packages for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
XRDDEV-96NewCreate Configuration Proxy installation packages for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
XRDDEV-97NewCreate Ubuntu 18.04 LTS upgrade instructions for Security Server.
XRDDEV-98NewCreate Ubuntu 18.04 LTS upgrade instructions for Central Server.
XRDDEV-99NewCreate Ubuntu 18.04 LTS upgrade instructions for Configuration Proxy.
XRDDEV-101NewCreate Ubuntu 18.04 LTS installation instructions for Central Server, Configuration Proxy and Security Server.
XRDDEV-105FixFix error causing global configuration returning outdated data on a federation setup. The error is rare and can occur in a situation where two federated instances are started up after they have been both shut down long enough for global configuration to expire.
XRDDEV-106FixImprove Security Server performance by making authentication key handling more efficient.
XRDDEV-108FixFix error in operational monitoring regarding measuring the processing time of requests - time that is consumed between sending out a request and receiving a response. The previous logic might have caused operational monitoring to return incorrect and even negative values.
XRDDEV-117ImprovementImprove Security Server's XML parser's external entity processing to make XML parsing secure by default.
XRDDEV-138FixFix wrong namespace in X-Road Service Metadata Protocol (PR-META) document.
XRDDEV-141FixFix an error causing a query to fail when a service is available on two or more Security Servers, and the host name resolution of one of the Security Servers fails.
XRDDEV-143ImprovementMake Signer component's module manager update interval configurable. Security Server administrator can override the default value using a configuration file.
XRDDEV-144FixMake timeout value used in batch signatures configurable. Security Server administrator can override the default value using a configuration file.
XRDDEV-145Improvement

Improve messagelog time-stamping so that messagelog records are always verifiable regardless of the number of processed messages and Security Server’s load. When the number of messages to time-stamp reaches the maximum value, batch time-stamping cycle is repeated until the number of time-stamped records is lower than timestamp-records-limit.

XRDDEV-146Fix

Drop support for global configuration v1. Officially supported X-Road versions all use global configuration v2.

N.B.! Security Server versions <=6.7.13 are no longer supported by Central Server versions >= 6.20.0.

XRDDEV-162FixUpdate NIIS package repository (https://artifactory.niis.org) to official documentation.
XRDDEV-165FixMake client-side Security Server to enforce whitelisted cipher suites in the connections between Security Servers.
XRDDEV-168FixRemove unused code from the code base.
XRDDEV-169ImprovementAdd installation instructions for Security Server on RHEL7.
XRDDEV-170ImprovementAdd support for setting up a Security Server cluster running on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS using Ansible setup scripts.
XRDDEV-177Fix

Update X-Road software version number format that is shown in the Version tab of the Security Server UI.

Release version number format is x.y.z and snapshot version number format is x.y.z-SNAPSHOT-commitDate-commitHash.

XRDDEV-178NewAdd support for Central Server clustering on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
XRDDEV-184ImprovementConvert ASiC verifier's documentation (UG-SIGDOC) from Word to Markdown.
XRDDEV-191FixAdd environmental monitoring daemon and environmental monitoring query to X-Road's architecture documentation (ARC-G).
XRDDEV-192ImprovementAdd support for extracting a message from ASiC container when verification of the container fails. The improvement enables extraction of messages from ASiC containers when SOAP payload is not logged in messagelog database.
XRDDEV-220FixFix an intermittent failure in connection creation between Security Servers.
XRDDEV-222NewCreate Ubuntu 18.04 LTS upgrade instructions for Security Server cluster.
XRDDEV-229ImprovementFinnish national settings: Update default authentication and signing key length to 3072 bits (earlier 2048 bits).
XRDDEV-231ImprovementAdd X-Road brand colors and and X-Road logo in Central Server and Security Server UIs.
XRDDEV-232ImprovementAdd a Feedback page including links to X-Road Service Desk and X-Road Backlog in Central Server and Security Server UIs.
XRDDEV-248FixSet a timeout value for the SSL handshake when establishing a connection between Security Servers. Previously, the Security Server could wait forever for the SSL handshake to complete after the TCP connection was set up.
XRDDEV-256Improvement

Asicverifier's version number follows the Security Server's version number. Until now asicverifier's version number has been 1.0 and it has not changed even if the component has been updated. Starting from v6.20.0 asicverifier officially supports the matching Security Server version number. In addition, the version number is dropped from the jar filename, and a new command line option (--version) is introduced.

$ java -jar asicverifier.jar --version
AsicVerifier (X-Road) 6.20.0
XRDDEV-257ImprovementRemove NTP dependency from X-Road packaging. NTP is no longer automatically installed together with Central Server, Security Server and Configuration Proxy packages. Administrators are free to choose the time syncing mechanism they want to use.

Issue types: fix (bug fix or technical debt), improvement (improvement to an existing feature), new (a new feature).
