X509_GET_SERIALNUMBER(3)                    DragonFly Library Functions Manual

NAME

X509_get_serialNumber, X509_set_serialNumber - get or set certificate serial number

SYNOPSIS

#include <openssl/x509.h> ASN1_INTEGER * X509_get_serialNumber(X509 *x); int X509_set_serialNumber(X509 *x, ASN1_INTEGER *serial);

DESCRIPTION

X509_get_serialNumber() returns the serial number of certificate x as an ASN1_INTEGER structure which can be examined or initialised. The value returned is an internal pointer which must not be freed up after the call. X509_set_serialNumber() sets the serial number of certificate x to serial. A copy of the serial number is used internally so serial should be freed up after use.

RETURN VALUES

X509_get_serialNumber() returns an ASN1_INTEGER structure. X509_set_serialNumber() returns 1 for success or 0 for failure. In some cases of failure, the reason can be determined with ERR_get_error(3).
