X509_GET_VERSION(3)   DragonFly Library Functions Manual   X509_GET_VERSION(3)


X509_get_version, X509_set_version, X509_REQ_get_version, X509_REQ_set_version, X509_CRL_get_version, X509_CRL_set_version - get or set certificate, certificate request, or CRL version


#include <openssl/x509.h> long X509_get_version(const X509 *x); int X509_set_version(X509 *x, long version); long X509_REQ_get_version(const X509_REQ *req); int X509_REQ_set_version(X509_REQ *x, long version); long X509_CRL_get_version(const X509_CRL *crl); int X509_CRL_set_version(X509_CRL *x, long version);


X509_get_version() returns the numerical value of the version field of certificate x. Note: this is defined by standards (X.509 et al.) to be one less than the certificate version. So a version 3 certificate will return 2 and a version 1 certificate will return 0. X509_set_version() sets the numerical value of the version field of certificate x to version. Similarly X509_REQ_get_version(), X509_REQ_set_version(), X509_CRL_get_version(), and X509_CRL_set_version() get and set the version number of certificate requests and CRLs. The version field of certificates, certificate requests, and CRLs has a DEFAULT value of v1(0) meaning the field should be omitted for version 1. This is handled transparently by these functions.


X509_get_version(), X509_REQ_get_version(), and X509_CRL_get_version() return the numerical value of the version field. X509_set_version(), X509_REQ_set_version(), and X509_CRL_set_version() return 1 for success or 0 for failure. In some cases of failure, the reason can be determined with ERR_get_error(3).
