CVE Name Pending

Description The Asterisk HTTP server currently has a default
configuration which allows the BEAST vulnerability to be
exploited if the TLS functionality is enabled. This can
allow a man-in-the-middle attack to decrypt data passing
through it.

Resolution Additional configuration options have been added to Asterisk
which allow configuration of the HTTP server to not be
susceptible to the BEAST vulnerability. These include
options to confirm the permitted ciphers, to control what
TLS protocols are allowed, and to use server cipher
preference order instead of client preference order. The
default configuration has also been changed for the HTTP
server to use a configuration which is not susceptible to
the BEAST vulnerability.
