() allocates and initializes an empty X509_VERIFY_PARAM object.

() copies some data from the source object to the destination object.

The verification flags set with X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set_flags(3) in the source object are always OR'ed into the verification flags of the destination object.

Fields having their default value in the source object are not copied.

By default, fields in the destination object already having a non-default value are not overwritten. However, if at least one of the source or destination objects was created during a call to X509_STORE_CTX_init(3) that did not have a store argument, and if that object was not previously used as the destination in an earlier call to (), this restriction is waived and even non-default fields in the destination object get overwritten. If fields overwritten in this way contain pointers to allocated memory, that memory is freed.

As far as permitted by the above rules, the following fields are copied:

Some data that may be contained in the source object is never copied, for example the subject name of the peer certificate that can be retrieved with X509_VERIFY_PARAM_get0_peername(3).

If source is a NULL pointer, the function has no effect but returns successfully.

() is identical to X509_VERIFY_PARAM_inherit() except that fields in the destination object are overwritten even if they do not match their default values. Still, fields having their default value in the source object are not copied.

If () or X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set1() fail, partial copying may have occurred, so all data in the destination object should be regarded as invalid.

() is used internally by X509_STORE_CTX_init(3) and by X509_STORE_CTX_set_default(3), and X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set1() is used internally by X509_STORE_set1_param(3).

() clears all data contained in param and releases all memory used by it. If param is a NULL pointer, no action occurs.

() adds param to a static list of X509_VERIFY_PARAM objects maintained by the library. This function is extremely dangerous because contrary to the name of the function, if the list already contains an object that happens to have the same name, that old object is not only silently removed from the list, but also silently freed, which may silently invalidate various pointers existing elsewhere in the program.

() searches this list for an object of the given name. If no match is found, the predefined objects built-in to the library are also inspected.

() returns the sum of the number of objects on this list and the number of predefined objects built-in to the library. Note that this is not necessarily the total number of X509_VERIFY_PARAM objects existing in the program because there may be additional such objects that were never added to the list.

() accesses predefined and user-defined objects using id as an index, useful for looping over objects without knowing their names. An argument less than the number of predefined objects selects one of the predefined objects; a higher argument selects an object from the list.

() deletes all objects from this list. It is extremely dangerous because it also invalidates all data that was contained in all objects that were on the list and because it frees all these objects, which may invalidate various pointers existing elsewhere in the program.

X509_VERIFY_PARAM_new() returns a pointer to the new object, or NULL on allocation failure.

X509_VERIFY_PARAM_inherit(), X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set1(), and X509_VERIFY_PARAM_add0_table() return 1 for success or 0 for failure.

X509_VERIFY_PARAM_lookup() and X509_VERIFY_PARAM_get0() return a pointer to an existing built-in or user-defined object, or NULL if no object with the given name is found, or if id is at least X509_VERIFY_PARAM_get_count().

X509_VERIFY_PARAM_get_count() returns a number of objects.
