PKCS#7: Check content type and versions

This change “PKCS#7: Check content type and versions” (commit 2c7fd36) in Linux kernel is authored by David Howells <dhowells [at] redhat.com> on Mon Jul 20 21:16:31 2015 +0100.

Description of "PKCS#7: Check content type and versions"

The change “PKCS#7: Check content type and versions” introduces changes as follows.

PKCS#7: Check content type and versions

We only support PKCS#7 signed-data [RFC2315 sec 9] content at the top level,
so reject anything else.  Further, check that the version numbers in
SignedData and SignerInfo are 1 in both cases.

Note that we don't restrict the inner content type.  In the PKCS#7 code we
don't parse the data attached there, but merely verify the signature over
it.
