SSL_GET_EX_DATA_X509_STORE_CTX_IDX(3) Library Functions Manual SSL_GET_EX_DATA_X509_STORE_CTX_IDX(3)

NAME

SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idxget ex_data index to access SSL structure from X509_STORE_CTX

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 peer's 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(3) 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 functions 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 message.

EXAMPLES

The index returned from SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() provides access to SSL object for the connection during the verify_callback() when checking the peer's certificate. Please check the example in SSL_CTX_set_verify(3).
