The NSS team has released Network Security Services (NSS) 3.39,
which is a minor release.
Notable bug fixes:
* Bug 1483128 - NSS responded to an SSLv2-compatible ClientHello
with a ServerHello that had an all-zero random (CVE-2018-12384)
* The tstclnt and selfserv utilities added support for configuring
the enabled TLS signature schemes using the -J parameter.
* NSS will use RSA-PSS keys to authenticate in TLS. Support for
these keys is disabled by default but can be enabled using
* certutil added the ability to delete an orphan private key from
an NSS key database.
* Added the nss-policy-check utility, which can be used to check
an NSS policy configuration for problems.
* A PKCS#11 URI can be used as an identifier for a PKCS#11 token.
* The TLS 1.3 implementation uses the final version number from
* Previous versions of NSS accepted an RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 signature
where the DigestInfo structure was missing the NULL parameter.
Starting with version 3.39, NSS requires the encoding to contain
the NULL parameter.

parameter, as support for TLS compression was removed in a
previous NSS version.

* The following CA certificates were Added:
- OU = GlobalSign Root CA - R6
- CN = OISTE WISeKey Global Root GC CA
The following CA certificate was Removed:

The following CA certificates had the Websites trust bit disabled:
