NAME
SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx - get ex_data index to access SSL structure from X509_STORE_CTX
LIBRARY
libcrypto, -lcrypto
SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/ssl.h> int SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(void);
DESCRIPTION
SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() returns the index number under which the pointer to the SSL object is stored into the X509_STORE_CTX object.
NOTES
Whenever a X509_STORE_CTX object is created for the verification of the peers certificate during a handshake, a pointer to the SSL object is stored into the X509_STORE_CTX object to identify the connection affected. To retrieve this pointer the X509_STORE_CTX_get_ex_data() function can be used with the correct index. This index is globally the same for all X509_STORE_CTX objects and can be retrieved using SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(). The index value is set when SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() is first called either by the application program directly or indirectly during other SSL setup func- tions or during the handshake. The value depends on other index values defined for X509_STORE_CTX objects before the SSL index is created.
RETURN VALUES
>=0 The index value to access the pointer. <0 An error occurred, check the error stack for a detailed error mes- sage.
EXAMPLES
The index returned from SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() allows to access the SSL object for the connection to be accessed during the ver- ify_callback() when checking the peers certificate. Please check the example in SSL_CTX_set_verify(3),
