Vulnerability Analysis

ROC – Infineon RSA Vulnerability

This tool is related to ACM CCS 2017 conference paper #124 Return of the Coppersmith’s Attack: Practical Factorization of Widely Used RSA Moduli.

It enables you to test public RSA keys for a presence of the described vulnerability.

Update: The paper of the attack is already online, ACM version.

Currently the tool supports the following key formats:

  • X509 Certificate, DER encoded, one per file, *.der, *.crt
  • X509 Certificate, PEM encoded, more per file, *.pem
  • RSA PEM encoded private key, public key, more per file, *.pem (has to have correct header —–BEGIN RSA…)
  • SSH public key, *.pub, starting with “ssh-rsa”, one per line
  • ASC encoded PGP key, *.pgp, *.asc. More per file, has to have correct header —–BEGIN PGP…
  • APK android application, *.apk
  • one modulus per line text file *.txt, modulus can be a) base64 encoded number, b) hex coded number, c) decimal coded number
  • JSON file with moduli, one record per line, record with modulus has key “mod” (int, base64, hex, dec encoding supported) certificate(s) with key “cert” / array of certificates with key “certs” are supported, base64 encoded DER.
  • LDIFF file – LDAP database dump. Any field ending with “;binary::” is attempted to decode as X509 certificate
  • Java Key Store file (JKS). Tries empty password & some common, specify more with –jks-pass-file
  • PKCS7 signature with user certificate

The detection tool is intentionally one-file implementation for easy integration / manipulation.

Pip install
Install with pip (installs all dependencies)

pip install roca-detect

Local install
Execute in the root folder of the package:

pip install --upgrade --find-links=. .

Dependencies
It may be required to install additional dependencies so pip can install e.g. cryptography package.
CentOS / RHEL:

sudo yum install python-devel python-pip gcc gcc-c++ make automake autoreconf libtool openssl-devel libffi-devel dialog

Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev swig

Usage
To print the basic usage:

# If installed with pip / manually
roca-detect --help

# Without installation (can miss dependencies)
python roca/detect.py

The testing tool accepts multiple file names / directories as the input argument. It returns the report showing how many files has been fingerprinted (and which are those).
Example (no vulnerabilities found):
Running recursively on all my SSH keys and known_hosts:

PGP key
In order to test your PGP key you can export it from your email client or download it from the PGP key server such as https://pgp.mit.edu/
You can also use gpg command line utility to export your public key:

gpg --armor --export [email protected] > mykey.asc

Advanced use case
Detection tool extracts information about the key which can be displayed:

roca-detect.py --dump --flatten --indent  ~/.ssh/

Advanced installation methods

Virtual environment
It is usually recommended to create a new python virtual environment for the project:

virtualenv ~/pyenv
source ~/pyenv/bin/activate
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install --upgrade --find-links=. .

Separate Python 2.7.13
We tested tool with Python 2.7.13 and it works (see Travis for more info). We have reports saying lower versions (<=2.6) do not work properly so we highly recommend using up to date Python 2.7
Use pyenv to install a new Python version locally if you cannot / don’t want to update system Python.
It internally downloads Python sources and installs it to ~/.pyenv.

git clone https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv.git ~/.pyenv
echo 'export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"' >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'eval "$(pyenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc
exec $SHELL
pyenv install 2.7.13
pyenv local 2.7.13

Python 3
Basic testing routine is quite simple and works with Py3 but the rest of the code that processes the different key formats and extracts the modulus for inspection is not yet fully py3 ready.
We are working on Py3 compatible version.

Docker container
Run via Docker container to avoid environment inconsistency. Dockerfile source can be audited at https://hub.docker.com/r/unnawut/roca-detect/.

docker run --rm -v /path/to/your/keys:/keys --network none unnawut/roca-detect

Make sure to use --rm and --network none flags to disable container’s network connection and delete the container after running.
