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 corre- sponding 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.
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 store in the private key EVP_PKEY structure.
