asn1_expand_octet_string (3)

Name

asn1_expand_octet_string - API function

Synopsis

#include <libtasn1.h>

int  asn1_expand_octet_string(asn1_node  definitions,  asn1_node * ele-
ment, const char * octetName, const char * objectName);

Description

libtasn1                                           asn1_expand_octet_string(3)



NAME
       asn1_expand_octet_string - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libtasn1.h>

       int  asn1_expand_octet_string(asn1_node  definitions,  asn1_node * ele-
       ment, const char * octetName, const char * objectName);

ARGUMENTS
       asn1_node definitions
                   ASN1 definitions

       asn1_node * element
                   pointer to an ASN1 structure

       const char * octetName
                   name of the OCTECT STRING field to expand.

       const char * objectName
                   name of the OBJECT IDENTIFIER field to use  to  define  the
                   type for expansion.

DESCRIPTION
       Expands  an  "OCTET  STRING"  element of a structure created from a DER
       decoding process (the asn1_der_decoding() function).  The type used for
       expansion is the first one following the definition of the actual value
       of the OBJECT IDENTIFIER indicated by OBJECTNAME.

RETURNS
       ASN1_SUCCESS if substitution OK, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND if   objectName
       or  octetName are not correct, ASN1_VALUE_NOT_VALID if it wasn't possi-
       ble to find the type to use for expansion, or other errors depending on
       DER decoding.
