gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_response — API function


#include <gnutls/ocsp.h>
int gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_response( gnutls_ocsp_resp_t resp,
  gnutls_datum_t * response_type_oid,
  gnutls_datum_t * response);


gnutls_ocsp_resp_t resp

should contain a gnutls_ocsp_resp_t structure

gnutls_datum_t * response_type_oid

newly allocated output buffer with response type OID

gnutls_datum_t * response

newly allocated output buffer with DER encoded response


This function will extract the response type OID in and the response data from an OCSP response. Normally the response_type_oid is always "" which means the response should be decoded as a Basic OCSP Response, but technically other response types could be used.

This function is typically only useful when you want to extract the response type OID of an response for diagnostic purposes. Otherwise gnutls_ocsp_resp_import() will decode the basic OCSP response part and the caller need not worry about that aspect.


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