          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Low
         Component: Dissection engine (libwireshark)
  Target Milestone: ---

The Cloudflare recursive DNS service (aka supports DNS-over-HTTP
(DoH), as well as IPv6 endpoints. Since DoH runs over HTTPS, it has a TLS
certificate not only for the IPv4 address literals and, but
also for the IPv6 address literals 2606:4700:4700::1111 and
2606:4700:4700::1001. These exist as subjectAlternateName fields.

According to RFC5280, page 36, both types encode into an iPAddress field like

>                                                                 For IP
>   version 4, as specified in [RFC791], the octet string MUST contain
>   exactly four octets.  For IP version 6, as specified in
>   [RFC2460], the octet string MUST contain exactly sixteen octets.

(Imagine you have all of ASN.1 at your disposal, and then you require two
different types of data of fixed (but different) length to be encoded into the
same variable length field. Yeah.)

Unfortunately, wireshark always decodes this field as IPv4 address. (Offending
code probably in epan/dissectors/asn1/x509ce/packet-x509ce-template.c:103.)

The IPv6 address literal 2606:4700:4700::1111 encodes as TLV bytes (in hex) 87
10 26 06 47 00 47 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 11 11, the second nibble of the
first byte indicating type iPAddress 07d, and the second byte 10h indicating a
length of 16d. Wireshark decodes this to the IPv4 address, which
corresponds to the first four bytes of the IPv6 address.

To reproduce, capture your HTTP client requesting <> and
inspect the server certificate in Wireshark.
