asn1_array2tree ()

                                                         asn1_node *definitions,
                                                         char *errorDescription);

Creates the structures needed to manage the ASN.1 definitions. array is a vector created by asn1_parser2array().

array :

specify the array that contains ASN.1 declarations

definitions :

return the pointer to the structure created by *ARRAY ASN.1 declarations

errorDescription :

return the error description.

Returns :

ASN1_SUCCESS if structure was created correctly, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_EMPTY if *definitions not NULL, ASN1_IDENTIFIER_NOT_FOUND if in the file there is an identifier that is not defined (see errorDescription for more information), ASN1_ARRAY_ERROR if the array pointed by array is wrong.

asn1_bit_der ()

void                asn1_bit_der                        (const unsigned char *str,

Creates a length-value DER encoding for the input data as it would have been for a BIT STRING. The DER encoded data will be copied in der.

Note that the BIT STRING tag is not included in the output.

This function does not return any value because it is expected that der_len will contain enough bytes to store the string plus the DER encoding. The DER encoding size can be obtained using asn1_length_der().

str :

BIT string.

bit_len :

number of meaningful bits in STR.

der :

string returned.

der_len :

number of meaningful bytes of DER (der[0]..der[ans_len-1]).

Check that the version of the library is at minimum the requested one and return the version string; return NULL if the condition is not satisfied. If a NULL is passed to this function, no check is done, but the version string is simply returned.

See ASN1_VERSION for a suitable req_version string.

req_version :

Required version number, or NULL.

Returns :

Version string of run-time library, or NULL if the run-time library does not meet the required version number.

                                                         const char *name,
                                                         void *ivalue,
                                                         int *len,
                                                         unsigned int *etype);

Returns the value of one element inside a structure.

If an element is OPTIONAL and the function "read_value" returns ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND, it means that this element wasn't present in the der encoding that created the structure. The first element of a SEQUENCE_OF or SET_OF is named "?1". The second one "?2" and so on.

INTEGER: VALUE will contain a two's complement form integer.

integer=-1 -> value[0]=0xFF , len=1. integer=1 -> value[0]=0x01 , len=1.

ENUMERATED: As INTEGER (but only with not negative numbers).

BOOLEAN: VALUE will be the null terminated string "TRUE" or "FALSE" and LEN=5 or LEN=6.

OBJECT IDENTIFIER: VALUE will be a null terminated string with each number separated by a dot (i.e. "1.2.3.543.1").

LEN = strlen(VALUE)+1

UTCTime: VALUE will be a null terminated string in one of these formats: "YYMMDDhhmmss+hh'mm'" or "YYMMDDhhmmss-hh'mm'". LEN=strlen(VALUE)+1.

GeneralizedTime: VALUE will be a null terminated string in the same format used to set the value.

OCTET STRING: VALUE will contain the octet string and LEN will be the number of octets.

GeneralString: VALUE will contain the generalstring and LEN will be the number of octets.

BIT STRING: VALUE will contain the bit string organized by bytes and LEN will be the number of bits.

CHOICE: If NAME indicates a choice type, VALUE will specify the alternative selected.

ANY: If NAME indicates an any type, VALUE will indicate the DER encoding of the structure actually used.

root :

pointer to a structure.

name :

the name of the element inside a structure that you want to read.

ivalue :

vector that will contain the element's content, must be a pointer to memory cells already allocated.

len :

number of bytes of *value: value[0]..value[len-1]. Initialy holds the sizeof value.

etype :

The type of the value read (ASN1_ETYPE)

Returns :

ASN1_SUCCESS if value is returned, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND if name is not a valid element, ASN1_VALUE_NOT_FOUND if there isn't any value for the element selected, and ASN1_MEM_ERROR if The value vector isn't big enough to store the result, and in this case len will contain the number of bytes needed.

asn1_strerror ()

const char *        asn1_strerror                       (int error);

Returns a string with a description of an error. This function is similar to strerror. The only difference is that it accepts an error (number) returned by a libtasn1 function.

error :

is an error returned by a libtasn1 function.

Returns :

Pointer to static zero-terminated string describing error code.

asn1_write_value ()

int                 asn1_write_value                    (asn1_node node_root,
                                                         const char *name,
                                                         const void *ivalue,
                                                         int len);

Set the value of one element inside a structure.

If an element is OPTIONAL and you want to delete it, you must use the value=NULL and len=0. Using "pkix.asn":

result=asn1_write_value(cert, "tbsCertificate.issuerUniqueID", NULL, 0);

Description for each type:

INTEGER: VALUE must contain a two's complement form integer.

value[0]=0xFF , len=1 -> integer=-1. value[0]=0xFF value[1]=0xFF , len=2 -> integer=-1. value[0]=0x01 , len=1 -> integer= 1. value[0]=0x00 value[1]=0x01 , len=2 -> integer= 1. value="123" , len=0 -> integer= 123.

ENUMERATED: As INTEGER (but only with not negative numbers).

BOOLEAN: VALUE must be the null terminated string "TRUE" or "FALSE" and LEN != 0.

value="TRUE" , len=1 -> boolean=TRUE. value="FALSE" , len=1 -> boolean=FALSE.

OBJECT IDENTIFIER: VALUE must be a null terminated string with each number separated by a dot (e.g. "1.2.3.543.1"). LEN != 0.

value="1 2 840 10040 4 3" , len=1 -> OID=dsa-with-sha.

UTCTime: VALUE must be a null terminated string in one of these formats: "YYMMDDhhmmssZ", "YYMMDDhhmmssZ", "YYMMDDhhmmss+hh'mm'", "YYMMDDhhmmss-hh'mm'", "YYMMDDhhmm+hh'mm'", or "YYMMDDhhmm-hh'mm'". LEN != 0.

value="9801011200Z" , len=1 -> time=Jannuary 1st, 1998 at 12h 00m Greenwich Mean Time

GeneralizedTime: VALUE must be in one of this format: "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.sZ", "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.sZ", "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.s+hh'mm'", "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.s-hh'mm'", "YYYYMMDDhhmm+hh'mm'", or "YYYYMMDDhhmm-hh'mm'" where ss.s indicates the seconds with any precision like "10.1" or "01.02". LEN != 0

value="2001010112001.12-0700" , len=1 -> time=Jannuary 1st, 2001 at 12h 00m 01.12s Pacific Daylight Time

OCTET STRING: VALUE contains the octet string and LEN is the number of octets.

value="$\backslash$x01$\backslash$x02$\backslash$x03" , len=3 -> three bytes octet string

GeneralString: VALUE contains the generalstring and LEN is the number of octets.

value="$\backslash$x01$\backslash$x02$\backslash$x03" , len=3 -> three bytes generalstring

BIT STRING: VALUE contains the bit string organized by bytes and LEN is the number of bits.

value="$\backslash$xCF" , len=6 -> bit string="110011" (six bits)

CHOICE: if NAME indicates a choice type, VALUE must specify one of the alternatives with a null terminated string. LEN != 0. Using "pkix.asn"\:

result=asn1_write_value(cert, "certificate1.tbsCertificate.subject", "rdnSequence", 1);

ANY: VALUE indicates the der encoding of a structure. LEN != 0.

SEQUENCE OF: VALUE must be the null terminated string "NEW" and LEN != 0. With this instruction another element is appended in the sequence. The name of this element will be "?1" if it's the first one, "?2" for the second and so on.

Using "pkix.asn"\:

result=asn1_write_value(cert, "certificate1.tbsCertificate.subject.rdnSequence", "NEW", 1);

SET OF: the same as SEQUENCE OF. Using "pkix.asn":

result=asn1_write_value(cert, "tbsCertificate.subject.rdnSequence.?LAST", "NEW", 1);

node_root :

pointer to a structure

name :

the name of the element inside the structure that you want to set.

ivalue :

vector used to specify the value to set. If len is >0, VALUE must be a two's complement form integer. if len=0 *VALUE must be a null terminated string with an integer value.

len :

number of bytes of *value to use to set the value: value[0]..value[len-1] or 0 if value is a null terminated string

Returns :

ASN1_SUCCESS if the value was set, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND if name is not a valid element, and ASN1_VALUE_NOT_VALID if ivalue has a wrong format.
