asn1_der_coding (3)

Name

asn1_der_coding - API function

Synopsis

#include <libtasn1.h>

int  asn1_der_coding(asn1_node element, const char * name, void * ider,
int * len, char * ErrorDescription);

Description

asn1_der_coding(3)                 libtasn1                 asn1_der_coding(3)



NAME
       asn1_der_coding - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libtasn1.h>

       int  asn1_der_coding(asn1_node element, const char * name, void * ider,
       int * len, char * ErrorDescription);

ARGUMENTS
       asn1_node element
                   pointer to an ASN1 element

       const char * name
                   the name of the structure you want to encode  (it  must  be
                   inside *POINTER).

       void * ider vector  that  will  contain the DER encoding. DER must be a
                   pointer to memory cells already allocated.

       int * len   number of bytes of * ider :  ider [0].. ider [len-1],  Ini-
                   tialy holds the sizeof of der vector.

       char * ErrorDescription
                   return the error description or an empty string if success.

DESCRIPTION
       Creates the DER encoding for the NAME structure (inside *POINTER struc-
       ture).

RETURNS
       ASN1_SUCCESS if DER encoding OK, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND if  name is not
       a  valid element, ASN1_VALUE_NOT_FOUND if there is an element without a
       value, ASN1_MEM_ERROR if the  ider vector isn't big enough and in  this
       case  len will contain the length needed.
