Home CVE Database CVE-2016-2217



It was found that in the OpenSSL address implementation the hard coded 1024 bit DH p parameter was not prime. The effective cryptographic strength of a key exchange using these parameters was weaker than the one one could get by using a prime p, making easier for eavesdropper to recover the shared secret from a key exchange that uses them.
