[PATCH 3.16 015/328] crypto: vmac - require a block cipher with 128-bit block size
From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Sun Dec 09 2018 - 17:28:03 EST
3.16.62-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@xxxxxxxxxx>
commit 73bf20ef3df262026c3470241ae4ac8196943ffa upstream.
The VMAC template assumes the block cipher has a 128-bit block size, but
it failed to check for that. Thus it was possible to instantiate it
using a 64-bit block size cipher, e.g. "vmac(cast5)", causing
uninitialized memory to be used.
Add the needed check when instantiating the template.
