https://github.com/openssl/openssl/commits/ and pick the appropriate
release branch.
+ Changes between 1.1.1b and 1.1.1c [28 May 2019]
+
+ *) Add build tests for C++. These are generated files that only do one
+ thing, to include one public OpenSSL head file each. This tests that
+ the public header files can be usefully included in a C++ application.
+
+ This test isn't enabled by default. It can be enabled with the option
+ 'enable-buildtest-c++'.
+ [Richard Levitte]
+
+ *) Enable SHA3 pre-hashing for ECDSA and DSA.
+ [Patrick Steuer]
+
+ *) Change the default RSA, DSA and DH size to 2048 bit instead of 1024.
+ This changes the size when using the genpkey app when no size is given. It
+ fixes an omission in earlier changes that changed all RSA, DSA and DH
+ generation apps to use 2048 bits by default.
+ [Kurt Roeckx]
+
+ *) Reorganize the manual pages to consistently have RETURN VALUES,
+ EXAMPLES, SEE ALSO and HISTORY come in that order, and adjust
+ util/fix-doc-nits accordingly.
+ [Paul Yang, Joshua Lock]
+
+ *) Add the missing accessor EVP_PKEY_get0_engine()
+ [Matt Caswell]
+
+ *) Have apps like 's_client' and 's_server' output the signature scheme
+ along with other cipher suite parameters when debugging.
+ [Lorinczy Zsigmond]
+
+ *) Make OPENSSL_config() error agnostic again.
+ [Richard Levitte]
+
+ *) Do the error handling in RSA decryption constant time.
+ [Bernd Edlinger]
+
+ *) Prevent over long nonces in ChaCha20-Poly1305.
+
+ ChaCha20-Poly1305 is an AEAD cipher, and requires a unique nonce input
+ for every encryption operation. RFC 7539 specifies that the nonce value
+ (IV) should be 96 bits (12 bytes). OpenSSL allows a variable nonce length
+ and front pads the nonce with 0 bytes if it is less than 12
+ bytes. However it also incorrectly allows a nonce to be set of up to 16
+ bytes. In this case only the last 12 bytes are significant and any
+ additional leading bytes are ignored.
+
+ It is a requirement of using this cipher that nonce values are
+ unique. Messages encrypted using a reused nonce value are susceptible to
+ serious confidentiality and integrity attacks. If an application changes
+ the default nonce length to be longer than 12 bytes and then makes a
+ change to the leading bytes of the nonce expecting the new value to be a
+ new unique nonce then such an application could inadvertently encrypt
+ messages with a reused nonce.
+
+ Additionally the ignored bytes in a long nonce are not covered by the
+ integrity guarantee of this cipher. Any application that relies on the
+ integrity of these ignored leading bytes of a long nonce may be further
+ affected. Any OpenSSL internal use of this cipher, including in SSL/TLS,
+ is safe because no such use sets such a long nonce value. However user
+ applications that use this cipher directly and set a non-default nonce
+ length to be longer than 12 bytes may be vulnerable.
+
+ This issue was reported to OpenSSL on 16th of March 2019 by Joran Dirk
+ Greef of Ronomon.
+ (CVE-2019-1543)
+ [Matt Caswell]
+
+ *) Ensure that SM2 only uses SM3 as digest algorithm

Changes between 1.1.1a and 1.1.1b [26 Feb 2019]
*) Added SCA hardening for modular field inversion in EC_GROUP through
