Unsafe random bit generation algorithms

December 18, 2013 / Pavankumar

  Security | Adobe ColdFusion 10

ColdFusion Enterprise installation includes FIPS compliant RSA BSAFE JCE Crypto Provider. Default algorithm used by this library for random number generation is ECDRBG (A variant of Dual Elliptic Curve).  RSA has released an advisory regarding same (ESA-2013-068) listing unsafe random bit generation algorithms. 

ColdFusion sets the default random number generator algorithm to FIPS186Random (JVM argument -Dcoldfusion.jsafe.defaultalgo=<algorithm>) which is completely safe to use.  So good news is by default your ColdFusion 10 installation is secure. Note that CrypotJ libraries are not available in Standard installation of ColdFusion. 

ColdFusion 9 family uses BSafe library 3.6 which doesn’t make use of ECDRBG based algorithms. It uses SHA1PRNG as default random number generation algorithm. There is no impact on coldfusion 9. JVM argument -Dcoldfusion.jsafe.defaultalgo is not available in ColdFusion 9 family.

Following table lists unsafe random bit generation algorithms.

Algorithm Identifier Algorithm
ECDRBG Dual EC DRBG (128 Bit)
ECDRBG128 Dual EC DRBG (128 Bit Default)
ECDRBG192 Dual EC DRBG (192 bit)
ECDRBG256 Dual EC DRBG (256 bit)
