asn1_encode_simple_der (3)

Name

asn1_encode_simple_der - API function

Synopsis

#include <libtasn1.h>

int  asn1_encode_simple_der(unsigned  int  etype, const unsigned char *
str, unsigned int str_len, unsigned char * tl, unsigned int * tl_len);

Description

asn1_encode_simple_der(3)          libtasn1          asn1_encode_simple_der(3)



NAME
       asn1_encode_simple_der - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libtasn1.h>

       int  asn1_encode_simple_der(unsigned  int  etype, const unsigned char *
       str, unsigned int str_len, unsigned char * tl, unsigned int * tl_len);

ARGUMENTS
       unsigned int etype
                   The type of the string to be encoded (ASN1_ETYPE_)

       const unsigned char * str
                   the string data.

       unsigned int str_len
                   the string length

       unsigned char * tl
                   the encoded tag and length

       unsigned int * tl_len
                   the bytes of the  tl field

DESCRIPTION
       Creates the DER encoding for various simple ASN.1  types  like  strings
       etc.  It stores the tag and length in  tl , which should have space for
       at least ASN1_MAX_TL_SIZE bytes. Initially  tl_len should  contain  the
       size of  tl .

       The  complete  DER encoding should consist of the value in  tl appended
       with the provided  str .

RETURNS
       ASN1_SUCCESS if successful or an error value.
