DESCRIPTION

These functions convert OpenSSL objects to and from their ASN.1/string representation. This function is used for X509v3 extensions.

NOTES

The letters i and s in i2s and s2i stand for "internal" (that is, an internal C structure) and string respectively. So i2s_ASN1_IA5STRING() converts from internal to string.

It is the caller's responsibility to free the returned string. In the i2s_ASN1_IA5STRING() function the string is copied and the ownership of the original string remains with the caller.

RETURN VALUES

i2s_ASN1_IA5STRING() returns the pointer to a IA5 string or NULL if an error occurs.

s2i_ASN1_IA5STRING() return a valid ASN1_IA5STRING structure or NULL if an error occurs.

i2s_ASN1_INTEGER() return a valid string or NULL if an error occurs.

s2i_ASN1_INTEGER() returns the pointer to a ASN1_INTEGER structure or NULL if an error occurs.

i2s_ASN1_OCTET_STRING() returns the pointer to a OCTET_STRING string or NULL if an error occurs.

s2i_ASN1_OCTET_STRING() return a valid ASN1_OCTET_STRING structure or NULL if an error occurs.

i2s_ASN1_ENUMERATED() return a valid string or NULL if an error occurs.

s2i_ASN1_ENUMERATED() returns the pointer to a ASN1_ENUMERATED structure or NULL if an error occurs.

s2i_ASN1_UTF8STRING() return a valid ASN1_UTF8STRING structure or NULL if an error occurs.

i2s_ASN1_UTF8STRING() returns the pointer to a UTF-8 string or NULL if an error occurs.

HISTORY

i2s_ASN1_UTF8STRING() and s2i_ASN1_UTF8STRING() were made public in OpenSSL 3.0.
