Subject: CVE Request: lighttpd using vulnerable cipher suites with SNI


I'd like to request a CVE id for the following bug:

Nathan Bishop <> reported
( that lighttpd uses vulnerable
cipher suites when SNI is used:

    $HTTP["Host"] == "" {
        ssl.pemfile = "/etc/ssl/certs/"
    $SERVER["socket"] == ":443" {
        ssl.engine = "enable"
        ssl.pemfile = "/etc/ssl/certs/default.pem"
        ssl.cipher-list = "HIGH"

This config uses the "DEFAULT" cipher list for "", which
includes export ciphers.

More details are available at:

Please note that the patch is not final yet, and can't be found in SVN.

We're still discussing:
* whether other options should work in SNI context (we could
  add all to all SSL_CTX instances)
* whether to set a default ssl.cipher-list, and which string to pick
