DESCRIPTION

       These functions are typically called after X509_verify_cert() has indicated an error or in
       a verification callback to determine the nature of an error.

       X509_STORE_CTX_get_error() returns the error code of ctx, see the ERROR CODES section for
       a full description of all error codes.

       X509_STORE_CTX_set_error() sets the error code of ctx to s. For example it might be used
       in a verification callback to set an error based on additional checks.

       X509_STORE_CTX_get_error_depth() returns the depth of the error. This is a non-negative
       integer representing where in the certificate chain the error occurred. If it is zero it
       occurred in the end entity certificate, one if it is the certificate which signed the end
       entity certificate and so on.

       X509_STORE_CTX_set_error_depth() sets the error depth.  This can be used in combination
       with X509_STORE_CTX_set_error() to set the depth at which an error condition was detected.

       X509_STORE_CTX_get_current_cert() returns the certificate in ctx which caused the error or
       NULL if no certificate is relevant.

       X509_STORE_CTX_set_current_cert() sets the certificate x in ctx which caused the error.
       This value is not intended to remain valid for very long, and remains owned by the caller.
       It may be examined by a verification callback invoked to handle each error encountered
       during chain verification and is no longer required after such a callback.  If a callback
       wishes the save the certificate for use after it returns, it needs to increment its
       reference count via X509_up_ref(3).  Once such a saved certificate is no longer needed it
       can be freed with X509_free(3).

       X509_STORE_CTX_get0_cert() retrieves an internal pointer to the certificate being verified
       by the ctx.

       X509_STORE_CTX_get1_chain() returns a complete validate chain if a previous call to
       X509_verify_cert() is successful. If the call to X509_verify_cert() is not successful the
       returned chain may be incomplete or invalid. The returned chain persists after the ctx
       structure is freed, when it is no longer needed it should be free up using:

        sk_X509_pop_free(chain, X509_free);

       X509_verify_cert_error_string() returns a human readable error string for verification
       error n.

RETURN VALUES

       X509_STORE_CTX_get_error() returns X509_V_OK or an error code.

       X509_STORE_CTX_get_error_depth() returns a non-negative error depth.

       X509_STORE_CTX_get_current_cert() returns the certificate which caused the error or NULL
       if no certificate is relevant to the error.

       X509_verify_cert_error_string() returns a human readable error string for verification
       error n.

ERROR CODES

       A list of error codes and messages is shown below.  Some of the error codes are defined
       but currently never returned: these are described as "unused".

       X509_V_OK: ok
           the operation was successful.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_ISSUER_CERT: unable to get issuer certificate
           the issuer certificate could not be found: this occurs if the issuer certificate of an
           untrusted certificate cannot be found.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_CRL: unable to get certificate CRL
           the CRL of a certificate could not be found.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_DECRYPT_CERT_SIGNATURE: unable to decrypt certificate's signature
           the certificate signature could not be decrypted. This means that the actual signature
           value could not be determined rather than it not matching the expected value, this is
           only meaningful for RSA keys.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_DECRYPT_CRL_SIGNATURE: unable to decrypt CRL's signature
           the CRL signature could not be decrypted: this means that the actual signature value
           could not be determined rather than it not matching the expected value.  Unused.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_DECODE_ISSUER_PUBLIC_KEY: unable to decode issuer public key
           the public key in the certificate SubjectPublicKeyInfo could not be read.

       X509_V_ERR_CERT_SIGNATURE_FAILURE: certificate signature failure
           the signature of the certificate is invalid.

       X509_V_ERR_CRL_SIGNATURE_FAILURE: CRL signature failure
           the signature of the certificate is invalid.

       X509_V_ERR_CERT_NOT_YET_VALID: certificate is not yet valid
           the certificate is not yet valid: the notBefore date is after the current time.

       X509_V_ERR_CERT_HAS_EXPIRED: certificate has expired
           the certificate has expired: that is the notAfter date is before the current time.

       X509_V_ERR_CRL_NOT_YET_VALID: CRL is not yet valid
           the CRL is not yet valid.

       X509_V_ERR_CRL_HAS_EXPIRED: CRL has expired
           the CRL has expired.

       X509_V_ERR_ERROR_IN_CERT_NOT_BEFORE_FIELD: format error in certificate's notBefore field
           the certificate notBefore field contains an invalid time.

       X509_V_ERR_ERROR_IN_CERT_NOT_AFTER_FIELD: format error in certificate's notAfter field
           the certificate notAfter field contains an invalid time.

       X509_V_ERR_ERROR_IN_CRL_LAST_UPDATE_FIELD: format error in CRL's lastUpdate field
           the CRL lastUpdate field contains an invalid time.

       X509_V_ERR_ERROR_IN_CRL_NEXT_UPDATE_FIELD: format error in CRL's nextUpdate field
           the CRL nextUpdate field contains an invalid time.

       X509_V_ERR_OUT_OF_MEM: out of memory
           an error occurred trying to allocate memory. This should never happen.

       X509_V_ERR_DEPTH_ZERO_SELF_SIGNED_CERT: self signed certificate
           the passed certificate is self signed and the same certificate cannot be found in the
           list of trusted certificates.

       X509_V_ERR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT_IN_CHAIN: self signed certificate in certificate chain
           the certificate chain could be built up using the untrusted certificates but the root
           could not be found locally.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_ISSUER_CERT_LOCALLY: unable to get local issuer certificate
           the issuer certificate of a locally looked up certificate could not be found.  This
           normally means the list of trusted certificates is not complete.

       X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_VERIFY_LEAF_SIGNATURE: unable to verify the first certificate
           no signatures could be verified because the chain contains only one certificate and it
           is not self signed.

       X509_V_ERR_CERT_CHAIN_TOO_LONG: certificate chain too long
           the certificate chain length is greater than the supplied maximum depth. Unused.

           the certificate has been revoked.

       X509_V_ERR_INVALID_CA: invalid CA certificate
           a CA certificate is invalid. Either it is not a CA or its extensions are not
           consistent with the supplied purpose.

       X509_V_ERR_PATH_LENGTH_EXCEEDED: path length constraint exceeded
           the basicConstraints path-length parameter has been exceeded.

       X509_V_ERR_INVALID_PURPOSE: unsupported certificate purpose
           the supplied certificate cannot be used for the specified purpose.

       X509_V_ERR_CERT_UNTRUSTED: certificate not trusted
           the root CA is not marked as trusted for the specified purpose.

       X509_V_ERR_CERT_REJECTED: certificate rejected
           the root CA is marked to reject the specified purpose.

       X509_V_ERR_SUBJECT_ISSUER_MISMATCH: subject issuer mismatch
           the current candidate issuer certificate was rejected because its subject name did not
           match the issuer name of the current certificate. This is only set if issuer check
           debugging is enabled it is used for status notification and is not in itself an error.

       X509_V_ERR_AKID_SKID_MISMATCH: authority and subject key identifier mismatch
           the current candidate issuer certificate was rejected because its subject key
           identifier was present and did not match the authority key identifier current
           certificate. This is only set if issuer check debugging is enabled it is used for
           status notification and is not in itself an error.

       X509_V_ERR_AKID_ISSUER_SERIAL_MISMATCH: authority and issuer serial number mismatch
           the current candidate issuer certificate was rejected because its issuer name and
           serial number was present and did not match the authority key identifier of the
           current certificate. This is only set if issuer check debugging is enabled it is used
           for status notification and is not in itself an error.

       X509_V_ERR_KEYUSAGE_NO_CERTSIGN:key usage does not include certificate signing
           the current candidate issuer certificate was rejected because its keyUsage extension
           does not permit certificate signing. This is only set if issuer check debugging is
           enabled it is used for status notification and is not in itself an error.

       X509_V_ERR_INVALID_EXTENSION: invalid or inconsistent certificate extension
           A certificate extension had an invalid value (for example an incorrect encoding) or
           some value inconsistent with other extensions.

       X509_V_ERR_INVALID_POLICY_EXTENSION: invalid or inconsistent certificate policy extension
           A certificate policies extension had an invalid value (for example an incorrect
           encoding) or some value inconsistent with other extensions. This error only occurs if
           policy processing is enabled.

       X509_V_ERR_NO_EXPLICIT_POLICY: no explicit policy
           The verification flags were set to require and explicit policy but none was present.

       X509_V_ERR_DIFFERENT_CRL_SCOPE: Different CRL scope
           The only CRLs that could be found did not match the scope of the certificate.

       X509_V_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_EXTENSION_FEATURE: Unsupported extension feature
           Some feature of a certificate extension is not supported. Unused.

       X509_V_ERR_PERMITTED_VIOLATION: permitted subtree violation
           A name constraint violation occurred in the permitted subtrees.

       X509_V_ERR_EXCLUDED_VIOLATION: excluded subtree violation
           A name constraint violation occurred in the excluded subtrees.

       X509_V_ERR_SUBTREE_MINMAX: name constraints minimum and maximum not supported
           A certificate name constraints extension included a minimum or maximum field: this is
           not supported.

       X509_V_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_CONSTRAINT_TYPE: unsupported name constraint type
           An unsupported name constraint type was encountered. OpenSSL currently only supports
           directory name, DNS name, email and URI types.

       X509_V_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_CONSTRAINT_SYNTAX: unsupported or invalid name constraint syntax
           The format of the name constraint is not recognised: for example an email address
           format of a form not mentioned in RFC3280. This could be caused by a garbage extension
           or some new feature not currently supported.

       X509_V_ERR_CRL_PATH_VALIDATION_ERROR: CRL path validation error
           An error occurred when attempting to verify the CRL path. This error can only happen
           if extended CRL checking is enabled.

       X509_V_ERR_APPLICATION_VERIFICATION: application verification failure
           an application specific error. This will never be returned unless explicitly set by an
           application.

NOTES

       The above functions should be used instead of directly referencing the fields in the
       X509_VERIFY_CTX structure.

       In versions of OpenSSL before 1.0 the current certificate returned by
       X509_STORE_CTX_get_current_cert() was never NULL. Applications should check the return
       value before printing out any debugging information relating to the current certificate.

       If an unrecognised error code is passed to X509_verify_cert_error_string() the numerical
       value of the unknown code is returned in a static buffer. This is not thread safe but will
       never happen unless an invalid code is passed.
