Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] [PATCH] packet-ssl.c: Modify use of col_clear
From: Martin Warnes <[email protected]>

Hi,

This patch modifies the way the COL_INFO field is updated and when
col_info is used to clear the contents, see below for a more detailed
explanation.

The SSL dissector (packet-ssl) is capable of handling multiple handshake
message, if this occurs then the handshake protocol for each message is
appended to the column information field:

+ Transmission Control Protocol
+ Secure Socket Layer
    - TLSv1 Record Layer
       + Handshake Protocol: Server Hello
       + Handshake Protocol: Certificate
       + Handshake Protocol: Certificate Request
       + Handshake Protocol: Server Hello Done

The above results in an Info field of: "Server
Hello,Certificate,Certificate Request,Server Hello Done"

When the SSL payload is being carried within another protocol the Info
field is still maintained.

+ Transmission Control Protocol
+ MyProtocol Layer
    + Secure Socket Layer
        - TLSv1 Record Layer
            + Handshake Protocol: Server Hello
           + Handshake Protocol: Certificate
           + Handshake Protocol: Certificate Request
           + Handshake Protocol: Server Hello Done

Still results in an Info field of: "Server Hello,Certificate,Certificate
Request,Server Hello Done"

However I have run into case where there can be multiple higher level
protocol records within a single packet each carrying a SSL record

+ Transmission Control Protocol
+ MyProtocol Layer
    + Secure Socket Layer
        - TLSv1 Record Layer
            + Handshake Protocol: Server Hello
+ MyProtocol Layer
    + Secure Socket Layer
        - TLSv1 Record Layer
           + Handshake Protocol: Certificate
+ MyProtocol Layer
    + Secure Socket Layer
        - TLSv1 Record Layer
           + Handshake Protocol: Certificate Request
+ MyProtocol Layer
    + Secure Socket Layer
        - TLSv1 Record Layer
           + Handshake Protocol: Server Hello Done


This results in the Info column just displaying "Server Hello Done"
because each time the SSL dissector is called it it issues a "col_clear"
against COL_INFO.

My attached solution only issues the col_clear() for the first SSL
record in a packet  by maintaining a "last packet seen" reference in the
conversation. Previously the SSL dissector passed the ssl_session as the
conversation data, in order to accomodate my changes I added a
conversation structure to handle the ssl_session and the last packet
seen reference.

I've tested on a number os standard SSL captures and captures where SSL
is being carried as a sub payload and not seen any problems.

Thank you for considering this.

Regards .. Martin
