gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify - API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify(const gnutls_x509_crt_t * cert_list, unsigned cert_list_length, const gnutls_x509_crt_t * CA_list, unsigned CA_list_length, const gnutls_x509_crl_t * CRL_list, unsigned CRL_list_length, unsigned int flags, unsigned int * verify);


is the certificate list to be verified
holds the number of certificate in cert_list
is the CA list which will be used in verification
holds the number of CA certificate in CA_list
holds a list of CRLs.

Flags that may be used to change the verification algorithm. Use OR of the gnutls_certificate_verify_flags enumerations.
will hold the certificate verification output.


This function will try to verify the given certificate list and return its status. The details of the verification are the same as in gnutls_x509_trust_list_verify_crt2().

You must check the peer's name in order to check if the verified certificate belongs to the actual peer.

The certificate verification output will be put in verify and will be one or more of the gnutls_certificate_status_t enumerated elements bitwise or'd. For a more detailed verification status use gnutls_x509_crt_verify() per list element.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
