Description
===========

A Lucky 13 timing side channel in mbedtls_ssl_decrypt_buf in
library/ssl_msg.c in Trusted Firmware Mbed TLS through 2.23.0 allows an
attacker to recover secret key information. This affects CBC mode
because of a computed time difference based on a padding length. The
issue is fixed in Mbed TLS 2.24.0, 2.16.8 and 2.7.17.

Impact
======

An attacker might be able to recover secret key information via a side-
channel.
