EVP_PKEY_ASN1_GET_COUNT(3)                  DragonFly Library Functions Manual


EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count, EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0, EVP_PKEY_get0_asn1, EVP_PKEY_asn1_find, EVP_PKEY_asn1_find_str, EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0_info - enumerate public key ASN.1 methods


#include <openssl/evp.h> int EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count(void); const EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD * EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0(int idx); const EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD * EVP_PKEY_get0_asn1(const EVP_PKEY *pkey); const EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD * EVP_PKEY_asn1_find(ENGINE **pe, int type); const EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD * EVP_PKEY_asn1_find_str(ENGINE **pe, const char *str, int len); int EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0_info(int *ppkey_id, int *pkey_base_id, int *ppkey_flags, const char **pinfo, const char **ppem_str, const EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD *ameth);


EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count() returns the number of public key ASN.1 methods available. It includes standard methods and any methods added by the application. EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0() returns the public key ASN.1 method idx. The value of idx must be in the range from zero to EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count() - 1. EVP_PKEY_asn1_find() looks up the method with NID type, which can be any of the values that EVP_PKEY_base_id(3) and EVP_PKEY_id(3) may return. If pe is not NULL, it first looks for an engine implementing a method for the NID type. If one is found, *pe is set to that engine and the method from that engine is returned instead. EVP_PKEY_asn1_find_str() looks up the method with PEM type string str. The PEM type strings supported by default are listed in the EVP_PKEY_base_id(3) manual page. Just like EVP_PKEY_asn1_find(), if pe is not NULL, methods from engines are preferred. EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0_info() retrieves the public key ID as returned by EVP_PKEY_id(3), the base public key ID as returned by EVP_PKEY_base_id(3) (both NIDs), any flags, the method description, and the PEM type string associated with ameth. EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count(), EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0(), EVP_PKEY_asn1_find() and EVP_PKEY_asn1_find_str() are not thread safe, but as long as all EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD objects are added before the application gets threaded, using them is safe. See EVP_PKEY_asn1_add0(3).


EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count() returns the number of available public key methods. EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0() returns a public key method or NULL if idx is out of range. EVP_PKEY_get0_asn1() returns the public key method used by pkey. EVP_PKEY_asn1_get0_info() returns 1 on success or 0 on failure.
