NAME
SSL_load_client_CA_file - load certificate names from file
LIBRARY
libcrypto, -lcrypto
SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/ssl.h> STACK_OF(X509_NAME) *SSL_load_client_CA_file(const char *file);
DESCRIPTION
SSL_load_client_CA_file() reads certificates from file and returns a STACK_OF(X509_NAME) with the subject names found.
NOTES
SSL_load_client_CA_file() reads a file of PEM formatted certificates and extracts the X509_NAMES of the certificates found. While the name suggests the specific usage as support function for SSL_CTX_set_client_CA_list(3), it is not limited to CA certificates.
EXAMPLES
Load names of CAs from file and use it as a client CA list: SSL_CTX *ctx; STACK_OF(X509_NAME) *cert_names; ... cert_names = SSL_load_client_CA_file("/path/to/CAfile.pem"); if (cert_names != NULL) SSL_CTX_set_client_CA_list(ctx, cert_names); else error_handling(); ...
RETURN VALUES
The following return values can occur: NULL The operation failed, check out the error stack for the reason. Pointer to STACK_OF(X509_NAME) Pointer to the subject names of the successfully read certificates.
