SSL_get_verify_result - get result of peer certificate verification
long SSL_get_verify_result(const SSL *ssl);
SSL_get_verify_result() returns the result of the verification of the
X509 certificate presented by the peer, if any.
SSL_get_verify_result() can only return one error code while the
verification of a certificate can fail because of many reasons at the
same time. Only the last verification error that occurred during the
processing is available from SSL_get_verify_result().
The verification result is part of the established session and is
restored when a session is reused.
If no peer certificate was presented, the returned result code is
X509_V_OK. This is because no verification error occurred, it does
however not indicate success. SSL_get_verify_result() is only useful in
connection with SSL_get_peer_certificate(3).
The following return values can currently occur:
The verification succeeded or no peer certificate was presented.
Any other value
