gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file(gnutls_certificate_credentials_t sc, const char * response_file, unsigned idx);


gnutls_certificate_credentials_t sc

is a credentials structure.

const char * response_file

a filename of the OCSP response

unsigned idx

is a certificate index as returned by gnutls_certificate_set_key() and friends


This function sets the filename of an OCSP response, that will be sent to the client if requests an OCSP certificate status for the certificate chain specified by  idx .

This is a convenience function which may be inefficient on busy servers since the file is opened on every access. Use  gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_function2() to fine-tune file accesses.


the ability to set multiple OCSP responses per credential structure via the index  idx was added in version 3.5.6. To keep backwards compatibility, it requires using gnutls_certificate_set_flags() with the GNUTLS_CERTIFICATE_API_V2 flag to make the set certificate functions return an index usable by this function.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error code is returned.
