gnutls_x509_trust_list_verify_named_crt - API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_trust_list_verify_named_crt(gnutls_x509_trust_list_t list, gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const void * name, size_t name_size, unsigned int flags, unsigned int * voutput, gnutls_verify_output_function func);


gnutls_x509_trust_list_t list
The structure of the list
gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
is the certificate to be verified
const void * name
is the certificate's name
size_t name_size
is the certificate's name size
unsigned int flags
Flags that may be used to change the verification algorithm. Use OR of the gnutls_certificate_verify_flags enumerations.
unsigned int * voutput
will hold the certificate verification output.
gnutls_verify_output_function func
If non-null will be called on each chain element verification with the output.


This function will try to find a certificate that is associated with the provided name --see gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_named_crt(). If a match is found the certificate is considered valid. In addition to that this function will also check CRLs. The voutput parameter will hold an OR'ed sequence of gnutls_certificate_status_t flags.

Additionally a certificate verification profile can be specified from the ones in gnutls_certificate_verification_profiles_t by ORing the result of GNUTLS_PROFILE_TO_VFLAGS() to the verification flags.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
