Detailed Description

SSLCertificate objects allow Qore code to work with X.509 certificate data.

The SSLCertificate class supports data serialization; note that the serialized data is a representation of the data that does not require a password, so for source data that requires a password to use, the serialized representation of the private key should be protected carefully (transmitted only in an encrypted stream)

Member Function Documentation

◆ constructor() [1/2]

Qore::SSLCertificate::constructor ( string  pem)

Creates the SSLCertificate object from the PEM-encoded version of the X.509 certificate.

Parameters
pemthe PEM representation of the X.509 certificate
Example:
SSLCertificate cert(pem_cert_string);
Exceptions
SSLCERTIFICATE-CONSTRUCTOR-ERRORinvalid X.509 certificate data
Since
0.8.4: the deprecated functionality where the if the string passed was less than 200 bytes long, it was assumed to be a file name has been removed; the string is assumed to be the PEM-encoded X.509 Certificate itself

◆ constructor() [2/2]

Qore::SSLCertificate::constructor ( binary  der)

Creates the SSLCertificate object from the DER-encoded version of the X.509 certificate.

Parameters
derthe DER-encoded representation of the X.509 certificate
Example:
SSLCertificate cert(der_cert);
Exceptions
SSLCERTIFICATE-CONSTRUCTOR-ERRORinvalid X.509 certificate data
