gnutls_x509_crt_list_import2 — API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_list_import2(gnutls_x509_crt_t ** certs, unsigned int * size, const gnutls_datum_t * data, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_x509_crt_t ** certs

Will hold the parsed certificate list.

unsigned int * size

It will contain the size of the list.

const gnutls_datum_t * data

The PEM encoded certificate.

gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format

One of DER or PEM.

unsigned int flags

must be (0) or an OR'd sequence of gnutls_certificate_import_flags.


This function will convert the given PEM encoded certificate list to the native gnutls_x509_crt_t format. The output will be stored in  certs which will be allocated and initialized.

If the Certificate is PEM encoded it should have a header of "X509 CERTIFICATE", or "CERTIFICATE".

To deinitialize  certs , you need to deinitialize each crt structure independently, and use gnutls_free() at  certs .


GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code.
