CVE Name CVE-2022-26499

Description When using STIR/SHAKEN, it’s possible to send
arbitrary requests like GET to interfaces such as
localhost using the Identity header.
Modules Affected res_stir_shaken

Resolution If you are using STIR/SHAKEN in Asterisk, upgrade to one of
the versions listed below to get a new configuration option:
stir_shaken_profile. This can be configured in
stir_shaken.conf and set on a per endpoint basis in
pjsip.conf. This option will take priority over the
stir_shaken option. The stir_shaken_profile will contain the
stir_shaken option (attest, verify, or both), as well as ACL
configuration options to permit and deny specific IP
addresses / hosts. The ACL will be used for the public key
URL we receive in the Identity header, which is used to tell
Asterisk where to download the public certificate. An ACL
from acl.conf can be used, but you can specify your own
permit and deny lines within the profile itself. A
combination of both can also be used.

Note that this patch contains changes that affect the same
area as the patch from AST-2022-001. It is recommended that
you upgrade to a listed version, otherwise you might
encounter merge conflicts.
