gnutls_x509_crl_iter_crt_serial — API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crl_iter_crt_serial(gnutls_x509_crl_t crl, gnutls_x509_crl_iter_t * iter, unsigned char * serial, size_t * serial_size, time_t * t);


gnutls_x509_crl_t crl

should contain a gnutls_x509_crl_t type

gnutls_x509_crl_iter_t * iter

A pointer to an iterator (initially the iterator should be NULL)

unsigned char * serial

where the serial number will be copied

size_t * serial_size

initially holds the size of serial

time_t * t

if non null, will hold the time this certificate was revoked


This function performs the same as gnutls_x509_crl_get_crt_serial(), but reads sequentially and keeps state in the iterator  between calls. That allows it to provide better performance in sequences  with many elements (50000+).

When past the last element is accessed GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned and the iterator is reset.

After use, the iterator must be deinitialized using gnutls_x509_crl_iter_deinit().


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