GTlsDatabase — TLS database type

Object Hierarchy

    GObject
    ╰── GTlsDatabase

Known Derived Interfaces

GTlsDatabase is required by GTlsFileDatabase.

Includes

#include <gio/gio.h>

Description

GTlsDatabase is used to lookup certificates and other information from a certificate or key store. It is an abstract base class which TLS library specific subtypes override.

Most common client applications will not directly interact with GTlsDatabase. It is used internally by GTlsConnection.

Functions

g_tls_database_verify_chain ()

GTlsCertificateFlags
g_tls_database_verify_chain (GTlsDatabase *self,
                             GTlsCertificate *chain,
                             const gchar *purpose,
                             GSocketConnectable *identity,
                             GTlsInteraction *interaction,
                             GTlsDatabaseVerifyFlags flags,
                             GCancellable *cancellable,
                             GError **error);

Verify's a certificate chain after looking up and adding any missing certificates to the chain.

chain is a chain of GTlsCertificate objects each pointing to the next certificate in the chain by its issuer property. The chain may initially consist of one or more certificates. After the verification process is complete, chain may be modified by adding missing certificates, or removing extra certificates. If a certificate anchor was found, then it is added to the chain .

purpose describes the purpose (or usage) for which the certificate is being used. Typically purpose will be set to G_TLS_DATABASE_PURPOSE_AUTHENTICATE_SERVER which means that the certificate is being used to authenticate a server (and we are acting as the client).

The identity is used to check for pinned certificates (trust exceptions) in the database. These will override the normal verification process on a host by host basis.

Currently there are no flags , and G_TLS_DATABASE_VERIFY_NONE should be used.

This function can block, use g_tls_database_verify_chain_async() to perform the verification operation asynchronously.

                                GTlsCertificate *certificate);

Create a handle string for the certificate. The database will only be able to create a handle for certificates that originate from the database. In cases where the database cannot create a handle for a certificate, NULL will be returned.

This handle should be stable across various instances of the application, and between applications. If a certificate is modified in the database, then it is not guaranteed that this handle will continue to point to it.

Parameters

self

certificate

certificate for which to create a handle.

 

Returns

a newly allocated string containing the handle.

                                GError **error);

Lookup a certificate by its handle.

The handle should have been created by calling g_tls_database_create_certificate_handle() on a GTlsDatabase object of the same TLS backend. The handle is designed to remain valid across instantiations of the database.

If the handle is no longer valid, or does not point to a certificate in this database, then NULL will be returned.

This function can block, use g_tls_database_lookup_certificate_for_handle_async() to perform the lookup operation asynchronously.

Parameters

self
