libksba Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. libksba-1.5.0.tar.bz2 contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

                            KSBA Overview

KSBA (pronounced Kasbah) is a library to make X.509 certificates as
well as the CMS easily accessible by other applications.  Both
specifications are building blocks of S/MIME and TLS.

KSBA is made available as a standard shared library and reserves
identifiers starting with "ksba" and "_ksba" (also uppercase and mixed
case).  It does not rely on another cryptographic library.


A standard info format reference manual is included.  However the OCSP
feature has not yet been documented.  See the comments in src/ocsp.c
and the example tests/t-ocsp.c.  The GnuPG's dirmngr module makes
extensive use of the OCSP feature and may be used as another example.
