libgcrypt20 (1.6.4-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move Vcs-* from git/http to https.
* Add 30_support_source_date_epoch.diff: Support setting BUILD_TIMESTAMP
using SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH through the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment
variable. (Thanks, Jérémy Bobbio!). Use/b-d on dh-autoreconf instead of
autotools-dev. Closes: #812428

libgcrypt20 (1.6.4-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Delete build-aux/texinfo.tex and let texinfo use the system copy instead
to prevent breakage in pdf generation in UTF-8 locale. Closes: #803081
* Migrate from libgcrypt20-dbg to ddebs. dh_strip's --ddeb-migration
option was added to debhelper/unstable with version 9.20150628, bump
build-dependency accordingly.

libgcrypt20 (1.6.3-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* Use ascii-armored debian/upstream/signing-key.asc instead of
debian/upstream-signing-key.pgp for uscan's verification. This alllows us
to drop debian/source/include-binaries. Add 2071B08A33BD3F06 as accepted
* New upstream release.
+ Use ciphertext blinding for Elgamal decryption [CVE-2014-3591].
See for details.
+ Fixed data-dependent timing variations in modular exponentiation
[related to CVE-2015-0837, Last-Level Cache Side-Channel Attacks
are Practical].
2014-09-27 - Andreas Metzler <>
libgcrypt20 (1.6.2-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add libgcrypt11-dev transitional package. It Breaks libgnutls-dev
(<< 2.12.23-18), because addition of a dummy package does not magically
fix GnuTLS 2.x incompatibilities with libgcrypt20.
