gnutls_ocsp_req_add_cert_id — API function


#include <gnutls/ocsp.h>
int gnutls_ocsp_req_add_cert_id( gnutls_ocsp_req_t req,
  gnutls_digest_algorithm_t digest,
  const gnutls_datum_t * issuer_name_hash,
  const gnutls_datum_t * issuer_key_hash,
  const gnutls_datum_t * serial_number);


gnutls_ocsp_req_t req

should contain a gnutls_ocsp_req_t structure

gnutls_digest_algorithm_t digest

hash algorithm, a gnutls_digest_algorithm_t value

const gnutls_datum_t * issuer_name_hash

hash of issuer's DN

const gnutls_datum_t * issuer_key_hash

hash of issuer's public key

const gnutls_datum_t * serial_number

serial number of certificate to check


This function will add another request to the OCSP request for a particular certificate having the issuer name hash of issuer_name_hash and issuer key hash of issuer_key_hash (both hashed using digest ) and serial number serial_number .

The information needed corresponds to the CertID structure:

<informalexample><programlisting> CertID ::= SEQUENCE { hashAlgorithm AlgorithmIdentifier, issuerNameHash OCTET STRING, −− Hash of Issuer's DN issuerKeyHash OCTET STRING, −− Hash of Issuers public key serialNumber CertificateSerialNumber } </programlisting></informalexample>


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