NAME

CTLOG_STORE_new, CTLOG_STORE_free, CTLOG_STORE_load_default_file, CTLOG_STORE_load_file - Create and populate a Certificate Transparency log list  

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/ct.h>

 CTLOG_STORE *CTLOG_STORE_new(void);
 void CTLOG_STORE_free(CTLOG_STORE *store);

 int CTLOG_STORE_load_default_file(CTLOG_STORE *store);
 int CTLOG_STORE_load_file(CTLOG_STORE *store, const char *file);

 

DESCRIPTION

A CTLOG_STORE is a container for a list of CTLOGs (Certificate Transparency logs). The list can be loaded from one or more files and then searched by LogID (see RFC 6962, Section 3.2, for the definition of a LogID).

CTLOG_STORE_new() creates an empty list of CT logs. This is then populated by CTLOG_STORE_load_default_file() or CTLOG_STORE_load_file(). CTLOG_STORE_load_default_file() loads from the default file, which is named ``ct_log_list.cnf'' in OPENSSLDIR (see the output of version). This can be overridden using an environment variable named ``CTLOG_FILE''. CTLOG_STORE_load_file() loads from a caller-specified file path instead. Both of these functions append any loaded CT logs to the CTLOG_STORE.

The expected format of the file is:

 enabled_logs=foo,bar

 [foo]
 description = Log 1
 key = <base64-encoded DER SubjectPublicKeyInfo here>

 [bar]
 description = Log 2
 key = <base64-encoded DER SubjectPublicKeyInfo here>

Once a CTLOG_STORE is no longer required, it should be passed to CTLOG_STORE_free(). This will delete all of the CTLOGs stored within, along with the CTLOG_STORE itself.  

NOTES

If there are any invalid CT logs in a file, they are skipped and the remaining valid logs will still be added to the CTLOG_STORE. A CT log will be considered invalid if it is missing a ``key'' or ``description'' field.  

RETURN VALUES

Both CTLOG_STORE_load_default_file and CTLOG_STORE_load_file return 1 if all CT logs in the file are successfully parsed and loaded, 0 otherwise.

HISTORY

These functions were added in OpenSSL 1.1.0.
