I try to porting the openVPN client (2.3.8) to ARMS embedded device. After setting cross compile I was able to run in ARMS, somehow, when I lanuch the openvpn in ARMS, it show error : VERIFY ERROR: depth=0, error=certificate signature, Below are ARMS OpenVPN client Log:

The OpenVPN server(2.3.8) was installed in a Ubuntu 14.04 desktop, all the client /server certifcate was generated with easy-rsa in this desktop.

I have try the same ca.crt and client.crt, client.key, will work fine in another OpenVPN client that installed with Ubuntu Linux Desktop

Somehow, for some reason, it not working in Embedded ARMS.(OpenVPN client)

Here attached the ca.crt and client1.crt dump and I have tried the "openssl verify" in my embedded ARMS but it will fail with below log: ""error 7 at 0 depth lookup:certificate signature failure" Detail log as below:

with the Same file and same Openssl verify command in OpenVPN server(Unbuntu desktop ) and another OpenVPN client(Unbuntu desktop) work fine.

Searching into the internet, it might cause by the default_md settings in easy-rsa settings, So I have try changing default_md to md5, sha1, sha256, I try all but all fails... still gettings the same error.

Can anyone suggest why openssl in my ARMS will fail to verify the certificate, any additional I should check? I already get stuck on this for some hours, I appreciate for your help!!

  • Can you edit your answer and leave out the -noout parameters, so that the PEM encoding of the certificate is included as well? – StackzOfZtuff Sep 28 '15 at 11:18
  • @StackzOfZtuff, I have edited the answer with -noout parameter removed, thanks – James Chien Sep 30 '15 at 0:14
  • Finally I found this was the Openssl library issue in TI am335x-evm platform, I have to rebuild my own openssl lib and then OpenVPN used the new build libssl.so will resolved the problem, I will set this issue as closed if no additional comment. – James Chien Sep 30 '15 at 2:32

Finally, I found this was an TI am335x-evm openssl library issues, currently I have worked around this issues by porting my own openssl library, I have tried both(1.0.1g and 1.0.1p) work well, OpenVPN now work as expect. BTW, I have already open a ticket to TI via

https://e2e.ti.com/support/arm/sitara_arm/f/791/t/455089

And Per TI, this issue should be fixed at latest SDK V01.00.00.03, I just try and confirm latest TI SDK doesn't have the issue, thanks.

Best Regards James
