Mitaka Series Release Notes

Mitaka Series Release Notes

2.0.0

This release includes a new command line utility ‘barbican-manage’ that consolidates and supersedes the separate HSM and database management scripts.

The Mitaka release includes a new API to add arbitrary user-defined metadata to Secrets.

This release includes significant improvements to the performance of the PKCS#11 Cryptographic Plugin driver. These changes will require a data migration of any existing data stored by previous versions of the PKCS#11 backend.

New Features

  • The ‘barbican-manage’ tool can be used to manage database schema changes as well as provision and rotate keys in the HSM backend.

Known Issues

  • The service will encounter errors if you attempt to run this new release using data stored by a previous version of the PKCS#11 Cryptographic Plugin that has not yet been migrated for this release. The logged errors will look like

    'P11CryptoPluginException: HSM returned response code: 0xc0L CKR_SIGNATURE_INVALID'

Upgrade Notes

  • The Metadata API requires an update to the Database Schema. Existing deployments that are being upgraded to Mitaka should use the ‘barbican-manage’ utility to update the schema.
  • If you are upgrading from previous version of barbican that uses the PKCS#11 Cryptographic Plugin driver, you will need to run the migration script

    python barbican/cmd/pkcs11_migrate_kek_signatures.py

Deprecation Notes

  • The ‘barbican-db-manage’ script is deprecated. Use the new ‘barbican-manage’ utility instead.
  • The ‘pkcs11-kek-rewrap’ script is deprecated. Use the new ‘barbican-manage’ utility instead.
  • The ‘pkcs11-key-generation’ script is deprecated. Use the new ‘barbican-manage’ utility instead.

Critical Issues

  • If you are upgrading from previous version of barbican that uses the PKCS#11 Cryptographic Plugin driver, you will need to run the migration script

    python barbican/cmd/pkcs11_migrate_kek_signatures.py
