we got a problem with OCSP stapling.
During the handshake some browsers send TLS extension “certificate
with more than 5 bytes in it.
In Nginx error_log it looks like:
[crit] 8721#0: *35 SSL_do_handshake() failed (SSL: error:0D0680A8:asn1
encoding routines:ASN1_CHECK_TLEN:wrong tag error:0D08303A:asn1 enco
ding routines:ASN1_TEMPLATE_NOEXP_D2I:nested asn1 error
routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:parse tlsext) while SSL handshaking,
If we disable OCSP stapling - everything works fine. Looks like the
is on the browser side and in OpenSSL tls ext parsing function. But can
make it just ignore the incorrect (?) tls extension than dropping SSL
Here is a list of user-agents which we were able to get on the same IPs
after disabling OCSP stapling.
