NAME

X509_get_pubkey, X509_get0_pubkey, X509_set_pubkey, X509_get_X509_PUBKEY, X509_REQ_get_pubkey, X509_REQ_get0_pubkey, X509_REQ_set_pubkey, X509_REQ_get_X509_PUBKEY - get or set certificate or certificate request public key

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/x509.h>

 EVP_PKEY *X509_get_pubkey(X509 *x);
 EVP_PKEY *X509_get0_pubkey(const X509 *x);
 int X509_set_pubkey(X509 *x, EVP_PKEY *pkey);
 X509_PUBKEY *X509_get_X509_PUBKEY(X509 *x);

 EVP_PKEY *X509_REQ_get_pubkey(X509_REQ *req);
 EVP_PKEY *X509_REQ_get0_pubkey(X509_REQ *req);
 int X509_REQ_set_pubkey(X509_REQ *x, EVP_PKEY *pkey);
 X509_PUBKEY *X509_REQ_get_X509_PUBKEY(X509_REQ *x);

DESCRIPTION

X509_get_pubkey() attempts to decode the public key for certificate x. If successful it returns the public key as an EVP_PKEY pointer with its reference count incremented: this means the returned key must be freed up after use. X509_get0_pubkey() is similar except it does not increment the reference count of the returned EVP_PKEY so it must not be freed up after use.

X509_get_X509_PUBKEY() returns an internal pointer to the X509_PUBKEY structure which encodes the certificate of x. The returned value must not be freed up after use.

X509_set_pubkey() attempts to set the public key for certificate x to pkey. The key pkey should be freed up after use.

X509_REQ_get_pubkey(), X509_REQ_get0_pubkey(), X509_REQ_set_pubkey() and X509_REQ_get_X509_PUBKEY() are similar but operate on certificate request req.

NOTES

The first time a public key is decoded the EVP_PKEY structure is cached in the certificate or certificate request itself. Subsequent calls return the cached structure with its reference count incremented to improve performance.

RETURN VALUES

X509_get_pubkey(), X509_get0_pubkey(), X509_get_X509_PUBKEY(), X509_REQ_get_pubkey() and X509_REQ_get_X509_PUBKEY() return a public key or NULL if an error occurred.

X509_set_pubkey() and X509_REQ_set_pubkey() return 1 for success and 0 for failure.
