NAME

       PKCS12_parse - parse a PKCS#12 structure

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/pkcs12.h>

        int PKCS12_parse(PKCS12 *p12, const char *pass, EVP_PKEY **pkey, X509 **cert,
                         STACK_OF(X509) **ca);

DESCRIPTION

       PKCS12_parse() parses a PKCS12 structure.

       p12 is the PKCS12 structure to parse. pass is the passphrase to use.  If successful the
       private key will be written to *pkey, the corresponding certificate to *cert and any
       additional certificates to *ca.

NOTES

       The parameters pkey and cert cannot be NULL. ca can be <NULL> in which case additional
       certificates will be discarded. *ca can also be a valid STACK in which case additional
       certificates are appended to *ca. If *ca is NULL a new STACK will be allocated.

       The friendlyName and localKeyID attributes (if present) on each certificate will be stored
       in the alias and keyid attributes of the X509 structure.

       The parameter pass is interpreted as a string in the UTF-8 encoding. If it is not valid
       UTF-8, then it is assumed to be ISO8859-1 instead.

       In particular, this means that passwords in the locale character set (or code page on
       Windows) must potentially be converted to UTF-8 before use. This may include passwords
       from local text files, or input from the terminal or command line. Refer to the
       documentation of UI_OpenSSL(3), for example.

RETURN VALUES

       PKCS12_parse() returns 1 for success and zero if an error occurred.

       The error can be obtained from ERR_get_error(3)

BUGS

       Only a single private key and corresponding certificate is returned by this function. More
       complex PKCS#12 files with multiple private keys will only return the first match.

       Only friendlyName and localKeyID attributes are currently stored in certificates. Other
       attributes are discarded.

       Attributes currently cannot be stored in the private key EVP_PKEY structure.
