issue with X509_get_issuer_name returning different values under OpenSSL 3

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all, I am starting to port some code to OpenSSL 3 (it's my first taste of it), and I'm stuck with a problem. I'm working under Ubuntu 22.

I saw that the function X509_issuer_and_serial_hash doesn't return the same value it did before (though not for an obvious reason), and since that value is used by my software to identify some certificates against a DB, I need to replicate the old behaviour.

To do so, I'm first trying to change the old function (from OpenSSL 1.1) so that it compiles under OpenSSL 3.

Here, a is of type X509, I always accessed most data from pointers. Now that they are gone, how do I read the following information to obtain exactly the same data?

- a->cert_info.issuer it X509_get_issuer_name(a) exactly the same?

- a-> ?

- a->cert_info.serialNumber.length ?

For completeness, my first, very raw code follows, where you can see how I'd use the values.

Thank you very much - Ubi
