Issue #10098 has been updated by Yui NARUSE.


Following is a patch but I just found there's OPENSSL_memcmp, which is not timing safe...

Feature #10098: [PATCH] Timing-safe string comparison for OpenSSL::HMAC
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10098#change-58095

* Author: Matt U
* Status: Assigned
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Yukihiro Matsumoto
----------------------------------------
I could be totally wrong, but it seems the standard library doesn't provide a reliable way of comparing hashes in constant-time.

* The docs for `OpenSSL::HMAC` encourage the use of `Digest#to_s` (see: http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.1.0/libdoc/openssl/rdoc/OpenSSL/HMAC.html#method-c-new )
* Ruby's string comparison uses memcmp, which isn't timing safe (see: http://rxr.whitequark.org/mri/source/string.c#2382 )

With this patch I propose to add an additional method, `OpenSSL::HMAC#verify`, which takes a binary string with a digest and compares it against the computed hash.
