gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_named_crt — API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_named_crt(gnutls_x509_trust_list_t list, gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const void * name, size_t name_size, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_x509_trust_list_t list
The list
gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
A certificate
const void * name
An identifier for the certificate
size_t name_size
The size of the identifier
unsigned int flags
should be 0.


This function will add the given certificate to the trusted list and associate it with a name. The certificate will not be be used for verification with gnutls_x509_trust_list_verify_crt() but with gnutls_x509_trust_list_verify_named_crt() or gnutls_x509_trust_list_verify_crt2() - the latter only since GnuTLS 3.4.0 and if a hostname is provided.

In principle this function can be used to set individual "server" certificates that are trusted by the user for that specific server but for no other purposes.

The certificate must not be deinitialized during the lifetime of the trusted list.


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