Function: void gnutls_certificate_get_trust_list (gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res, gnutls_x509_trust_list_t * tlist)

res: is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type.

tlist: Location where to store the trust list.

Obtains the list of trusted certificates stored in res and writes a pointer to it to the location tlist . The pointer will point to memory internal to res , and must not be deinitialized. It will be automatically deallocated when the res structure is deinitialized.

Since: 3.4.0

IPv4 addresses are accepted by this function in the dotted-decimal format (e.g, ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd), and IPv6 addresses in the hexadecimal x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x format. For them the IPAddress subject alternative name extension is consulted. Previous versions to 3.6.0 of GnuTLS in case of a non-match would consult (in a non-standard extension) the DNSname and CN fields. This is no longer the case.

When the flag GNUTLS_VERIFY_DO_NOT_ALLOW_WILDCARDS is specified no wildcards are considered. Otherwise they are only considered if the domain name consists of three components or more, and the wildcard starts at the leftmost position.

The function gnutls_x509_crt_check_ip() is available for matching IP addresses.

Returns: non-zero for a successful match, and zero on failure.

Since: 3.3.0

data: output data to be freed with gnutls_free() .

critical: pointer to output integer that is set to non-zero if the extension is marked as critical (may be NULL )

Note that a simpler API to access the authority info data is provided by gnutls_x509_aia_get() and gnutls_x509_ext_import_aia() .

This function extracts the Authority Information Access (AIA) extension, see RFC 5280 section 4.2.2.1 for more information. The AIA extension holds a sequence of AccessDescription (AD) data.

The seq input parameter is used to indicate which member of the sequence the caller is interested in. The first member is 0, the second member 1 and so on. When the seq value is out of bounds, GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.

The type of data returned in data is specified via what which should be gnutls_info_access_what_t values.

If what is GNUTLS_IA_ACCESSMETHOD_OID then data will hold the accessMethod OID (e.g., "1.3.6.1.5.5.7.48.1").

If what is GNUTLS_IA_ACCESSLOCATION_GENERALNAME_TYPE , data will hold the accessLocation GeneralName type (e.g., "uniformResourceIdentifier").

If what is GNUTLS_IA_URI , data will hold the accessLocation URI data. Requesting this what value leads to an error if the accessLocation is not of the "uniformResourceIdentifier" type.

If what is GNUTLS_IA_OCSP_URI , data will hold the OCSP URI. Requesting this what value leads to an error if the accessMethod is not 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.48.1 aka OCSP, or if accessLocation is not of the "uniformResourceIdentifier" type. In that case GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_ALGORITHM will be returned, and seq should be increased and this function called again.

If what is GNUTLS_IA_CAISSUERS_URI , data will hold the caIssuers URI. Requesting this what value leads to an error if the accessMethod is not 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.48.2 aka caIssuers, or if accessLocation is not of the "uniformResourceIdentifier" type. In that case handle as in GNUTLS_IA_OCSP_URI .

More what values may be allocated in the future as needed.

If data is NULL, the function does the same without storing the output data, that is, it will set critical and do error checking as usual.

The value of the critical flag is returned in * critical . Supply a NULL critical if you want the function to make sure the extension is non-critical, as required by RFC 5280.

Returns: GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, GNUTLS_E_INVALID_REQUEST on invalid crt , GNUTLS_E_CONSTRAINT_ERROR if the extension is incorrectly marked as critical (use a non-NULL critical to override), GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_ALGORITHM if the requested OID does not match (e.g., when using GNUTLS_IA_OCSP_URI ), otherwise a negative error code.

This function retrieves the Alternative Name (2.5.29.17), contained in the given certificate in the X509v3 Certificate Extensions.

When the SAN type is otherName, it will extract the data in the otherName’s value field, and GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME is returned. You may use gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_othername_oid() to get the corresponding OID and the "virtual" SAN types (e.g., GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME_XMPP ).

If an otherName OID is known, the data will be decoded. Otherwise the returned data will be DER encoded, and you will have to decode it yourself. Currently, only the RFC 3920 id-on-xmppAddr SAN is recognized.

Returns: the alternative subject name type on success, one of the enumerated gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t . It will return GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if san_size is not large enough to hold the value. In that case san_size will be updated with the required size.

It is the same as gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_name() except for the fact that it will return the type of the alternative name in san_type even if the function fails for some reason (i.e. the buffer provided is not enough).

Returns: the alternative subject name type on success, one of the enumerated gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t . It will return GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if san_size is not large enough to hold the value. In that case san_size will be updated with the required size. If the certificate does not have an Alternative name with the specified sequence number then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.

gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_othername_oid

If oid is null then only the size will be filled. The oid returned will be null terminated, although oid_size will not account for the trailing null.

Returns: the alternative subject name type on success, one of the enumerated gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t. For supported OIDs, it will return one of the virtual (GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME_*) types, e.g. GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME_XMPP , and GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME for unknown OIDs. It will return GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if ian_size is not large enough to hold the value. In that case ian_size will be updated with the required size. If the certificate does not have an Alternative name with the specified sequence number and with the otherName type then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.

buf_size: size of user allocated memory buffer (on input), will hold actual size of the unique ID on return.

This function will extract the subjectUniqueID value (if present) for the given certificate.

If the user allocated memory buffer is not large enough to hold the full subjectUniqueID, then a GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER error will be returned, and buf_size will be set to the actual length.

This function had a bug prior to 3.4.8 that prevented the setting of NULL buf to discover the buf_size . To use this function safely with the older versions the buf must be a valid buffer that can hold at least a single byte if buf_size is zero.

Returns: GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code.

The X.509 distinguished name is a sequence of sequences of strings and this is what the irdn and iava indexes model.

Note that ava will contain pointers into the dn structure which in turns points to the original certificate. Thus you should not modify any data or deallocate any of those.

This is a low-level function that requires the caller to do the value conversions when necessary (e.g. from UCS-2).

Returns: Returns 0 on success, or an error code.

If GNUTLS_TL_VERIFY_CRL is given the CRLs will be verified before being added.

Returns: The number of added elements is returned.

Since: 3.0

gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_named_crt

flags: Flags that may be used to change the verification algorithm. Use OR of the gnutls_certificate_verify_flags enumerations.

voutput: will hold the certificate verification output.

func: If non-null will be called on each chain element verification with the output.

This function will attempt to verify the given certificate chain and return its status. The voutput parameter will hold an OR’ed sequence of gnutls_certificate_status_t flags.

When a certificate chain of cert_list_size with more than one certificates is provided, the verification status will apply to the first certificate in the chain that failed verification. The verification process starts from the end of the chain (from CA to end certificate). The first certificate in the chain must be the end-certificate while the rest of the members may be sorted or not.

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.

Additional verification parameters are possible via the data types; the acceptable types are GNUTLS_DT_DNS_HOSTNAME and GNUTLS_DT_KEY_PURPOSE_OID . The former accepts as data a null-terminated hostname, and the latter a null-terminated object identifier (e.g., GNUTLS_KP_TLS_WWW_SERVER ). If a DNS hostname is provided then this function will compare the hostname in the end certificate against the given. If names do not match the GNUTLS_CERT_UNEXPECTED_OWNER status flag will be set. In addition it will consider certificates provided with gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_named_crt() .

If a key purpose OID is provided and the end-certificate contains the extended key usage PKIX extension, it will be required to match the provided OID or be marked for any purpose, otherwise verification will fail with GNUTLS_CERT_PURPOSE_MISMATCH status.

Returns: On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value. Note that verification failure will not result to an error code, only voutput will be updated.
