[PATCH] crypto: fix handling of ccm vectors with null assoc data

From: Jarod Wilson
Date: Wed Jan 21 2009 - 16:36:40 EST

Its a valid use case to have null associated data in a ccm vector, but
this case isn't being handled properly right now.

The following ccm decryption/verification test vector, using the
rfc4309 implementation regularly triggers a panic, as will any
other vector with null assoc data:

* key: ab2f8a74b71cd2b1ff802e487d82f8b9
* iv: c6fb7d800d13abd8a6b2d8
* Associated Data: [NULL]
* Tag Length: 8
* input: d5e8939fc7892e2b

The resulting panic looks like so:

The above is from a RHEL5-based kernel, but upstream is susceptible too.

The fix is trivial: in crypto/ccm.c:crypto_ccm_auth(), pctx->ilen contains
whatever was in memory when pctx was allocated if assoclen is 0. The tested
fix is to simply add an else clause setting pctx->ilen to 0 for the
assoclen == 0 case, so that get_data_to_compute() doesn't try doing
things its not supposed to.
