gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_certs: API function


gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_certs - API function


#include <gnutls/ocsp.h>

int gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_certs(gnutls_ocsp_resp_t resp, gnutls_x509_crt_t ** certs, size_t * ncerts);


gnutls_ocsp_resp_t resp
should contain a gnutls_ocsp_resp_t structure
gnutls_x509_crt_t ** certs
newly allocated array with gnutls_x509_crt_t certificates
size_t * ncerts
output variable with number of allocated certs.


This function will extract the X.509 certificates found in the Basic OCSP Response. The certs output variable will hold a newly allocated zero-terminated array with X.509 certificates.

Every certificate in the array needs to be de-allocated with gnutls_x509_crt_deinit() and the array itself must be freed using gnutls_free().

Both the certs and ncerts variables may be NULL. Then the function will work as normal but will not return the NULL:d information. This can be used to get the number of certificates only, or to just get the certificate array without its size.


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