Detailed Description

Create/Destroy/Modify a GSI Credential Handle.

Within the Globus GSI Credential Library, all credential operations require a handle parameter. Currenlty only one operation may be in progress at once per credential handle.

This section defines operations to create, modify and destroy GSI Credential handles.  

Typedef Documentation

 

typedef struct globus_l_gsi_cred_handle_s* globus_gsi_cred_handle_t

GSI Credential Handle. A GSI Credential handle keeps track of state relating to a credential. Handles can have immutable attributes associated with them. All credential operations take a credential handle pointer as a parameter.

See also:

globus_gsi_cred_handle_init(), globus_gsi_cred_handle_destroy(), globus_gsi_cred_handle_attrs_t

 

Function Documentation

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_handle_init (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t * handle, globus_gsi_cred_handle_attrs_t handle_attrs)

Initializes a credential handle to be used credential handling functions. Takes a set of handle attributes that are immutable to the handle. The handle attributes are only pointed to by the handle, so the lifetime of the attributes needs to be as long as that of the handle.

Parameters:

handle The handle to be initialized
handle_attrs The immutable attributes of the handle

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error captured in a globus_result_t

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_handle_destroy (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle)

Destroys the credential handle. Parameters:

handle The credential handle to be destroyed

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_handle_copy (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t source, globus_gsi_cred_handle_t * dest)

Copies a credential handle. Parameters:

source The handle to be copied
dest The destination of the copy

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_get_handle_attrs (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle, globus_gsi_cred_handle_attrs_t * attrs)

This function retreives a copy of the credential handle attributes. Parameters:

handle The credential handle to retrieve the attributes from

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error captured in a globus_result_t

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_get_goodtill (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t cred_handle, time_t * goodtill)

This function retreives the expiration time of the credential contained in the handle. Parameters:

goodtill Contains the expiration time on return

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error captured in a globus_result_t

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_get_lifetime (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t cred_handle, time_t * lifetime)

This function retreives the lifetime of the credential contained in a handle. Parameters:

cred_handle The credential handle to retrieve the lifetime from
lifetime Contains the lifetime on return

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error captured in a globus_result_t

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_get_key_bits (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t cred_handle, int * key_bits)

This function retreives the key strength of the credential contained in a handle. Parameters:

key_bits Contains the number of bits in the key on return

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error captured in a globus_result_t

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_set_cert (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle, X509 * cert)

Set the Credential's Certificate. The X509 cert that is passed in should be a valid X509 certificate object

Parameters:

handle The credential handle to set the certificate on
cert The X509 cert to set in the cred handle. The cert passed in can be NULL which will set the cert in the handle to NULL, freeing the current cert in the handle.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error object id if an error

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_get_cert (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle, X509 ** cert)

Get the certificate of a credential. Parameters:

handle The credential handle to get the certificate from
cert The resulting X509 certificate, a duplicate of the certificate in the credential handle. This variable should be freed when the user is finished with it using the function X509_free.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if no error, otherwise an error object id is returned

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_set_key (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle, EVP_PKEY * key)

Set the private key of the credential handle. Parameters:

handle The handle on which to set the key.
key The private key to set the handle's key to. This value can be NULL, in which case the current handle's key is freed.

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_get_key (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle, EVP_PKEY ** key)

Get the credential handle's private key. Parameters:

handle The credential handle containing the private key to get
key The private key which after this function returns is set to a duplicate of the private key of the credential handle. This variable needs to be freed by the user when it is no longer used via the function EVP_PKEY_free.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS or an error object identifier

 

globus_result_t globus_gsi_cred_set_cert_chain (globus_gsi_cred_handle_t handle, STACK_OF(X509)* cert_chain)

cert_chain The certificate chain to set as a duplicate of the cert chain in the credential handle. This variable (or the variable it points to) needs to be freed when the user is finished with it using sk_X509_free.

Returns:

GLOBUS_SUCCESS if no error, otherwise an error object id is returned
