MirOS Manual: SSL_CTX_get_cert_store(3), SSL_CTX_set_cert_store(3)



     SSL_CTX_set_cert_store, SSL_CTX_get_cert_store - manipulate
     X509 certificate verification storage


      #include <openssl/ssl.h>

      void SSL_CTX_set_cert_store(SSL_CTX *ctx, X509_STORE *store);
      X509_STORE *SSL_CTX_get_cert_store(const SSL_CTX *ctx);


     SSL_CTX_set_cert_store() sets/replaces the certificate
     verification storage of ctx to/with store. If another
     X509_STORE object is currently set in ctx, it will be

     SSL_CTX_get_cert_store() returns a pointer to the current
     certificate verification storage.


     In order to verify the certificates presented by the peer,
     trusted CA certificates must be accessed. These CA certifi-
     cates are made available via lookup methods, handled inside
     the X509_STORE. From the X509_STORE the X509_STORE_CTX used
     when verifying certificates is created.

     Typically the trusted certificate store is handled
     indirectly via using SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3). Using
     the SSL_CTX_set_cert_store() and SSL_CTX_get_cert_store()
     functions it is possible to manipulate the X509_STORE object
     beyond the SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) call.

     Currently no detailed documentation on how to use the
     X509_STORE object is available. Not all members of the
     X509_STORE are used when the verification takes place. So
     will e.g. the verify_callback() be overridden with the
     verify_callback() set via the SSL_CTX_set_verify(3) family
     of functions. This document must therefore be updated when
     documentation about the X509_STORE object and its handling
     becomes available.


     SSL_CTX_set_cert_store() does not return diagnostic output.

     SSL_CTX_get_cert_store() returns the current setting.
