DESCRIPTION

The ASN1_STRING object can represent a variety of ASN.1 built-in types. It can store a type and a value. All the *_new() functions allocate and initialize an empty ASN1_STRING object. The following table shows the type assigned to the new object, and which ASN.1 type it represents. constructor function OpenSSL type ASN.1 type ASN1_STRING_new() V_ASN1_OCTET_STRING ASN1_STRING_type_new() type argument ASN1_OCTET_STRING_new() V_ASN1_OCTET_STRING OCTET STRING ASN1_BIT_STRING_new() V_ASN1_BIT_STRING BIT STRING ASN1_INTEGER_new() V_ASN1_INTEGER INTEGER ASN1_ENUMERATED_new() V_ASN1_ENUMERATED ENUMERATED ASN1_UTF8STRING_new() V_ASN1_UTF8STRING UTF8String ASN1_IA5STRING_new() V_ASN1_IA5STRING IA5String ASN1_UNIVERSALSTRING_new() V_ASN1_UNIVERSALSTRING UniversalString ASN1_BMPSTRING_new() V_ASN1_BMPSTRING BMPString ASN1_GENERALSTRING_new() V_ASN1_GENERALSTRING GeneralString ASN1_T61STRING_new() V_ASN1_T61STRING T61String ASN1_VISIBLESTRING_new() V_ASN1_VISIBLESTRING VisibleString ASN1_PRINTABLESTRING_new() V_ASN1_PRINTABLESTRING PrintableString ASN1_PRINTABLE_new() V_ASN1_UNDEF DIRECTORYSTRING_new() V_ASN1_UNDEF DISPLAYTEXT_new() V_ASN1_UNDEF ASN1_GENERALIZEDTIME_new() V_ASN1_GENERALIZEDTIME GeneralizedTime ASN1_UTCTIME_new() V_ASN1_UTCTIME UTCTime ASN1_TIME_new() V_ASN1_UNDEF TIME All the *_free() functions free a including any data contained in it. If a is a NULL pointer, no action occurs.

RETURN VALUES

All the *_new() functions return the new ASN1_STRING object if successful; otherwise NULL is returned and an error code can be retrieved with ERR_get_error(3).

BUGS

ASN1_OCTET_STRING, ASN1_BIT_STRING, ASN1_INTEGER, ASN1_ENUMERATED, ASN1_UTF8STRING, ASN1_IA5STRING, ASN1_UNIVERSALSTRING, ASN1_BMPSTRING, ASN1_GENERALSTRING, ASN1_T61STRING, ASN1_VISIBLESTRING, ASN1_PRINTABLESTRING, ASN1_GENERALIZEDTIME, ASN1_UTCTIME, and ASN1_TIME are merely typedef aliases of ASN1_STRING and provide no type safety whatsoever.
