• possible CRYPT bug with n

    From mark lewis@VERT to all on Friday, June 14, 2019 04:44:00
    i think we've stumbled upon a bug when interacting with binkd and no session level password...

    i have a connection with a node that sends this when my binkd connects out to them...

    OPT CRAM-MD5-411eaac235d14fa531bd059150ddac9e CRYPT
    [...]
    VER BinkIT/2.17,JSBinkP/1.114,sbbs3.17c/Linux binkp/1.1

    my binkd reports this...

    rerror: Password mismatch


    when they connect inbound, they are sending this...

    OPT CRYPT
    [...]
    VER BinkIT/2.17,JSBinkP/1.114,sbbs3.17c/Linux binkp/1.1

    my binkd reports this...

    unexpected password digest from the remote


    there is only a tic password set in echocfg... no other passwords are set between the two systems...

    i tried setting -nomd on their node line but since they are requesting CRYPT, we cannot talk... binkd does not have, that i can find, an option to turn off CRYPT per node... i'm aware that binkit.js is v2.25 and binkp.js v1.118 and there has been some recent work done in this area of the code...

    with the above versions, i'm thinking that we're missing something since we seem to be setting CRYPT even when there is no session level password defined... i don't know if having that node update to the latest binkp.js and/or binkit.js will fix this particular problem with requesting CRYPT when there is no session level password set, though...

    session
    level password...

    i have a connection with a node that sends this when my binkd connects

    out
    to them...

    OPT CRAM-MD5-411eaac235d14fa531bd059150ddac9e CRYPT

    VER BinkIT/2.17,JSBinkP/1.114,sbbs3.17c/Linux binkp/1.1

    my binkd reports this...

    OPT CRYPT
    [...]
    VER BinkIT/2.17,JSBinkP/1.114,sbbs3.17c/Linux binkp/1.1

    That means the remote BinkIT system has a session password configured for your node. From binkp.js 1.114 ('-' is the same as a blank/no password):

    if (password !== '-')
    this.sendCmd(this.command.M_NUL, "OPT CRYPT");

    my binkd reports this...

    unexpected password digest from the remote


    there is only a tic password set in echocfg... no other passwords are


    set
    between the two systems...

    How do you know? according to the information you provided, it certainly seems the remote system has a session password configured.

    i tried setting -nomd on their node line but since they are requesting CRYPT, we cannot talk... binkd does not have, that i can find, an option to turn off CRYPT per node...

    Setting a blank password in BinkIT will stop the CRYPT option for outbound connections. The only way to disable it for inbound connections is the new global plain-text-only option.

    i'm aware that binkit.js is v2.25 and binkp.js
    v1.118 and there has been some recent work done in this area of the code...
    All about disabling CRAM-MD5 and encryption because my uplink was having issues that couldn't be easily debugged when those features were used.

    with the above versions, i'm thinking that we're missing something since we seem to be setting CRYPT even when there is no session level password defined...

    I don't think so.

    i don't know if having that node update to the latest binkp.js
    and/or binkit.js will fix this particular problem with requesting CRYPT when there is no session level password set, though...

    Shouldn't make any difference in that regard (for outbound connections from BinkIT).

    binkd requires the '-' if you have other fields following the password.

    Yes, I think that's exactly what's happening:
    this.node[sec].pass = f.iniGetValue(section, 'SessionPwd', '');

    This line (from fidocfg.js) would set the password to a blank string by default (not undefined).

    password = '-';

    No, I think that part is right. Just because you don't *require* CRAM-MD5 doesn't mean you won't allow it (and to allow it, you must send the OPT CRYPT msg).

    The blank vs. undefined password thing does seem like a problem though.

    right... i do not have any additional fields after the password field in my conf file... i put the '-' in anyway, just in case but it made no difference...
    i'm now waiting on the remote to put an actual session level password in their echocfg so we can see if that fixes the problem...

    Perhaps they made a copy/past error.

    it is possible ;)

    ummm, what? to allow CRAM-MD5 you must also send CRYPT? i don't see that... to have/allow CRYPT, you have to do CRAM-MD5, yes... maybe i'm reading that wrongly?

    The blank vs. undefined password thing does seem like a problem
    though.

    it is something to play with... [time passes] hehehe, i see you've already prodded cvs with some updates... we'll see what we can do about checking them out... i'll have to see if i can get the operator of that other system to update his .js files...

    Re: possible CRYPT bug with no session password

    of course that was wrong but if one was put in there, it should work the
    same... i've glanced over the code and i note that if the password is
    undefined, it is set to '-'... is it possible that maybe the password is
    not just undefined but it is blank?

    Yes, I think that's exactly what's happening:
    this.node[sec].pass = f.iniGetValue(section, 'SessionPwd', '');

    This line (from fidocfg.js) would set the password to a blank string by default (not undefined).

    ahhhhhhhh...

    be set up there where "this.require_md5 = false" is set instead of being
    set further down? then checking additional values would prevent "OPT
    CRYPT" from being sent as well??

    No, I think that part is right. Just because you don't *require* CRAM-MD5 doesn't mean you won't allow it (and to allow it, you must send the OPT CRYPT msg).

    ummm, what? to allow CRAM-MD5 you must also send CRYPT? i don't see that... to have/allow CRYPT, you have to do CRAM-MD5, yes... maybe i'm reading that wrongly?

    There's no configuration setting in echofg/sbbsecho.ini which enables support for CRAM-MD5 authentication (outbound) and disables support for encryption. A setting could be added but, since you can already disable both encryption and CRAM-MD5 (together), I'm not sure there's a need.

    i'm not sure, either... i like the idea of using CRAM-MD5 for the authentication exchange...

    CRYPTing the entire conversation is not really necessary but some like that, too... i guess they're transiting CC numbers, state secrets or similar...

    while they are coupled together in that CRYPT needs CRAM-MD5 to have a secure transaction, one should not have to run CRYPT if they don't want to...

    Thanks. Get the latest exec/binkit.js and load/binkp.js from CVS and see if tha
    fixes you up.

    OK, I did a wget/rename on both of those. We will see what happens.
    Thanks!!!
