 I have just released libtasn1 3.6. This release fixes possible
invalid memory accesses by the DER decoder found using the Codenomicon
TLS test suite. The changes since the last release follow.

* Noteworthy changes in release 3.6 (released 2014-05-25) [stable]
- Corrected an off-by-one error in ASN.1 DER tag decoding.
- Several improvements and new safety checks on DER decoding;
  issues found using Codenomicon TLS test suite.
- Marked asn1_der_decoding_element() as deprecated. Use
  asn1_der_decoding() instead.

GNU Libtasn1 is a standalone library written in C for manipulating ASN.1
objects including DER/BER encoding/decoding.  GNU Libtasn1 is used by
GnuTLS to handle X.509 structures and by GNU Shishi to handle Kerberos
V5 structures.
