Description

OCSP_resp_find_status() searches bs for an OCSP response for id. If it is successful the fields of the response are returned in *status, *reason, *revtime, *thisupd and *nextupd. The *status value will be one of V_OCSP_CERTSTATUS_GOOD, V_OCSP_CERTSTATUS_REVOKED or V_OCSP_CERTSTATUS_UNKNOWN. The *reason and *revtime fields are only set if the status is V_OCSP_CERTSTATUS_REVOKED. If set the *reason field will be set to the revocation reason which will be one of OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_NOSTATUS, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_UNSPECIFIED, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_KEYCOMPROMISE, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_CACOMPROMISE, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_AFFILIATIONCHANGED, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_SUPERSEDED, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_CESSATIONOFOPERATION, OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_CERTIFICATEHOLD or OCSP_REVOKED_STATUS_REMOVEFROMCRL.

OCSP_resp_count() returns the number of OCSP_SINGLERESP structures in bs.

OCSP_resp_get0() returns the OCSP_SINGLERESP structure in bs corresponding to index idx. Where idx runs from 0 to OCSP_resp_count(bs) - 1.

OCSP_resp_find() searches bs for id and returns the index of the first matching entry after last or starting from the beginning if last is -1.

OCSP_single_get0_status() extracts the fields of single in *reason, *revtime, *thisupd and *nextupd.

OCSP_resp_get0_produced_at() extracts the producedAt field from the single response bs.

OCSP_resp_get0_certs() returns any certificates included in bs.

OCSP_resp_get0_id() gets the responder id of <bs>. If the responder ID is a name then <*pname> is set to the name and *pid is set to NULL. If the responder ID is by key ID then *pid is set to the key ID and *pname is set to NULL.

OCSP_check_validity() checks the validity of thisupd and nextupd values which will be typically obtained from OCSP_resp_find_status() or OCSP_single_get0_status(). If sec is non-zero it indicates how many seconds leeway should be allowed in the check. If maxsec is positive it indicates the maximum age of thisupd in seconds.

Return Values

OCSP_resp_find_status() returns 1 if id is found in bs and 0 otherwise.

OCSP_resp_count() returns the total number of OCSP_SINGLERESP fields in bs.

OCSP_resp_get0() returns a pointer to an OCSP_SINGLERESP structure or NULL if idx is out of range.

OCSP_resp_find() returns the index of id in bs (which may be 0) or -1 if id was not found.

OCSP_single_get0_status() returns the status of single or -1 if an error occurred.

Notes

Applications will typically call OCSP_resp_find_status() using the certificate ID of interest and then check its validity using OCSP_check_validity(). They can then take appropriate action based on the status of the certificate.

An OCSP response for a certificate contains thisUpdate and nextUpdate fields. Normally the current time should be between these two values. To account for clock skew the maxsec field can be set to non-zero in OCSP_check_validity(). Some responders do not set the nextUpdate field, this would otherwise mean an ancient response would be considered valid: the maxsec parameter to OCSP_check_validity() can be used to limit the permitted age of responses.

The values written to *revtime, *thisupd and *nextupd by OCSP_resp_find_status() and OCSP_single_get0_status() are internal pointers which MUST NOT be freed up by the calling application. Any or all of these parameters can be set to NULL if their value is not required.
