SSL_get_verify_result(3)		     OpenSSL			 SSL_get_verify_result(3)

NAME
       SSL_get_verify_result - get result of peer certificate verification

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	long SSL_get_verify_result(const SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_get_verify_result() returns the result of the verification of the X509 certificate
       presented by the peer, if any.

NOTES
       SSL_get_verify_result() can only return one error code while the verification of a
       certificate can fail because of many reasons at the same time. Only the last verification
       error that occurred during the processing is available from SSL_get_verify_result().

       The verification result is part of the established session and is restored when a session
       is reused.

BUGS
       If no peer certificate was presented, the returned result code is X509_V_OK. This is
       because no verification error occurred, it does however not indicate success.
       SSL_get_verify_result() is only useful in connection with SSL_get_peer_certificate(3).

RETURN VALUES
       The following return values can currently occur:

       X509_V_OK
	   The verification succeeded or no peer certificate was presented.

       Any other value
	   Documented in openssl_verify(1).
