Fwd: Bug#616482: strongswan-ikev1: virtual ips not released if xauth name does not match id

Dear stable release team,

I have now integrated the cherry-picked upstream patch into my strongswan-sqeeze branch at the alioth git repository (ssh://alioth.debian.org/git/pkg-swan/strongswan.git). As mentioned in the bug report, it applies cleanly and is an isolated fix for a bug in version 4.4.1 that impacts some clients. We will integrate this patched version into our Gibraltar firewall release and will therefore test this package update for regressions within the next few days. I would then prepare an upload to "stable" to make it into squeeze proposed updates. Is this ok for you? If you can't directly look at the strongswan-squeeze git branch, I could send you the most current 4.4.1-7 package diff.

best regards,

Package: strongswan-ikev1
Version: 4.4.1-5.1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch upstream

In Strongswan version 4.4.1 as shipped in stable there is a known
bug which prevents a virtual ip assigned via mode config to be released
if the XAUTH name send from the peer does not match the peers id.

Clients which offer no control over which peer id is send or extract
it from the certificates subject will not be able to aquire a
virtual ip after their first disconnect.

One particular example of this peer behaviour are iphones.
For theses clients the current strongswan-ikev1 package is
not usable with the xauthrsasig method.

Upstream has a patch for this at

The patch applies cleanly to the debian source package
and solves the problem described.
