gnutls_ocsp_resp_verify: API function
NAMEgnutls_ocsp_resp_verify - API function
- gnutls_ocsp_resp_t resp
- should contain a gnutls_ocsp_resp_t structure
- gnutls_x509_trust_list_t trustlist
- trust anchors as a gnutls_x509_trust_list_t structure
- unsigned int * verify
- output variable with verification status, an gnutls_ocsp_cert_status_t
- unsigned int flags
- verification flags, 0 for now.
DESCRIPTIONVerify signature of the Basic OCSP Response against the public key in the certificate of a trusted signer. The trustlist should be populated with trust anchors. The function will extract the signer certificate from the Basic OCSP Response and will verify it against the trustlist . A trusted signer is a certificate that is either in trustlist , or it is signed directly by a certificate in
The output verify variable will hold verification status codes (e.g., GNUTLS_OCSP_VERIFY_SIGNER_NOT_FOUND, GNUTLS_OCSP_VERIFY_INSECURE_ALGORITHM) which are only valid if the function returned GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS.
Note that the function returns GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS even when verification failed. The caller must always inspect the verify variable to find out the verification status.
RETURNSOn success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
