The X509_STORE structure is intended to be a consolidated mechanism for
holding information about X.509 certificates and CRLs, and constructing
and validating chains of certificates terminating in trusted roots. It
admits multiple lookup mechanisms and efficient scaling performance
with large numbers of certificates, and a great deal of flexibility in
how validation and policy checks are performed.
X509_STORE_new(3) creates an empty X509_STORE structure, which contains
no information about trusted certificates or where such certificates
are located on disk, and is generally not usable. Normally, trusted
certificates will be added to the X509_STORE to prepare it for use, via
mechanisms such as X509_STORE_add_lookup() and X509_LOOKUP_file(), or
PEM_read_bio_X509_AUX() and X509_STORE_add_cert(). CRLs can also be
added, and many behaviors configured as desired.
Once the X509_STORE is suitably configured, X509_STORE_CTX_new() is
used to instantiate a single-use X509_STORE_CTX for each chain-building
and verification operation. That process includes providing the end-
entity certificate to be verified and an additional set of untrusted
certificates that may be used in chain-building. As such, it is
expected that the certificates included in the X509_STORE are
certificates that represent trusted entities such as root certificate
authorities (CAs). OpenSSL represents these trusted certificates
internally as X509 objects with an associated X509_CERT_AUX, as are
produced by PEM_read_bio_X509_AUX() and similar routines that refer to
X509_AUX. The public interfaces that operate on such trusted
certificates still operate on pointers to X509 objects, though.
X509_STORE_add_cert() and X509_STORE_add_crl() add the respective
object to the X509_STORE's local storage. Untrusted objects should not
be added in this way. The added object's reference count is
incremented by one, hence the caller retains ownership of the object
and needs to free it when it is no longer needed.
X509_STORE_set_purpose(), X509_STORE_set_trust(), and
X509_STORE_set1_param() set the default values for the corresponding
values used in certificate chain validation. Their behavior is
documented in the corresponding X509_VERIFY_PARAM manual pages, e.g.,
X509_STORE_add_lookup() finds or creates a X509_LOOKUP(3) with the
X509_LOOKUP_METHOD(3) meth and adds it to the X509_STORE store. This
also associates the X509_STORE with the lookup, so X509_LOOKUP
functions can look up objects in that store.
X509_STORE_load_locations() loads trusted certificate(s) into an
X509_STORE from a given file and/or directory path. It is permitted to
specify just a file, just a directory, or both paths. The certificates
in the directory must be in hashed form, as documented in
X509_STORE_set_default_paths() is somewhat misnamed, in that it does
not set what default paths should be used for loading certificates.
Instead, it loads certificates into the X509_STORE from the hardcoded
X509_STORE_add_cert(), X509_STORE_add_crl(), X509_STORE_set_depth(),
X509_STORE_set_trust(), X509_STORE_load_locations(), and
X509_STORE_set_default_paths() return 1 on success or 0 on failure.
X509_STORE_add_lookup() returns the found or created X509_LOOKUP(3), or
NULL on error.
