DESCRIPTION

       The X509_STORE structure is intended to be a consolidated mechanism for holding
       information about X.509 certificates and CRLs, and constructing and validating chains of
       certificates terminating in trusted roots.  It admits multiple lookup mechanisms and
       efficient scaling performance with large numbers of certificates, and a great deal of
       flexibility in how validation and policy checks are performed.

       X509_STORE_new(3) creates an empty X509_STORE structure, which contains no information
       about trusted certificates or where such certificates are located on disk, and is
       generally not usable.  Normally, trusted certificates will be added to the X509_STORE to
       prepare it for use, via mechanisms such as X509_STORE_add_lookup() and X509_LOOKUP_file(),
       or PEM_read_bio_X509_AUX() and X509_STORE_add_cert().  CRLs can also be added, and many
       behaviors configured as desired.

       Once the X509_STORE is suitably configured, X509_STORE_CTX_new() is used to instantiate a
       single-use X509_STORE_CTX for each chain-building and verification operation.  That
       process includes providing the end-entity certificate to be verified and an additional set
       of untrusted certificates that may be used in chain-building.  As such, it is expected
       that the certificates included in the X509_STORE are certificates that represent trusted
       entities such as root certificate authorities (CAs).  OpenSSL represents these trusted
       certificates internally as X509 objects with an associated X509_CERT_AUX, as are produced
       by PEM_read_bio_X509_AUX() and similar routines that refer to X509_AUX.  The public
       interfaces that operate on such trusted certificates still operate on pointers to X509
       objects, though.

       X509_STORE_add_cert() and X509_STORE_add_crl() add the respective object to the
       X509_STORE's local storage.  Untrusted objects should not be added in this way.

       X509_STORE_set_depth(), X509_STORE_set_flags(), X509_STORE_set_purpose(),
       X509_STORE_set_trust(), and X509_STORE_set1_param() set the default values for the
       corresponding values used in certificate chain validation.  Their behavior is documented
       in the corresponding X509_VERIFY_PARAM manual pages, e.g., X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set_depth(3).

       X509_STORE_load_locations() loads trusted certificate(s) into an X509_STORE from a given
       file and/or directory path.  It is permitted to specify just a file, just a directory, or
       both paths.  The certificates in the directory must be in hashed form, as documented in
       X509_LOOKUP_hash_dir(3).

       X509_STORE_set_default_paths() is somewhat misnamed, in that it does not set what default
       paths should be used for loading certificates.  Instead, it loads certificates into the
       X509_STORE from the hardcoded default paths.

RETURN VALUES

       X509_STORE_add_cert(), X509_STORE_add_crl(), X509_STORE_set_depth(),
       X509_STORE_set_flags(), X509_STORE_set_purpose(), X509_STORE_set_trust(),
       X509_STORE_load_locations(), and X509_STORE_set_default_paths() return 1 on success or 0
       on failure.
