NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

 #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);

DESCRIPTION

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.

NOTES

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.

RETURN VALUES

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 and 0 for failure.
