SSL_CTX_set_cert_store(3)		     OpenSSL			SSL_CTX_set_cert_store(3)

NAME
       SSL_CTX_set_cert_store, SSL_CTX_get_cert_store - manipulate X509 certificate verification
       storage

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	void SSL_CTX_set_cert_store(SSL_CTX *ctx, X509_STORE *store);
	X509_STORE *SSL_CTX_get_cert_store(SSL_CTX *ctx);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_CTX_set_cert_store() sets/replaces the certificate verification storage of ctx to/with
       store. If another X509_STORE object is currently set in ctx, it will be
       X509_STORE_free()ed.

       SSL_CTX_get_cert_store() returns a pointer to the current certificate verification stor-
       age.

NOTES
       In order to verify the certificates presented by the peer, trusted CA certificates must be
       accessed. These CA certificates are made available via lookup methods, handled inside the
       X509_STORE. From the X509_STORE the X509_STORE_CTX used when verifying certificates is
       created.

       Typically the trusted certificate store is handled indirectly via using SSL_CTX_load_ver-
       ify_locations(3).  Using the SSL_CTX_set_cert_store() and SSL_CTX_get_cert_store() func-
       tions it is possible to manipulate the X509_STORE object beyond the SSL_CTX_load_ver-
       ify_locations(3) call.

       Currently no detailed documentation on how to use the X509_STORE object is available. Not
       all members of the X509_STORE are used when the verification takes place. So will e.g. the
       verify_callback() be overridden with the verify_callback() set via the SSL_CTX_set_ver-
       ify(3) family of functions.  This document must therefore be updated when documentation
       about the X509_STORE object and its handling becomes available.

RETURN VALUES
       SSL_CTX_set_cert_store() does not return diagnostic output.

       SSL_CTX_get_cert_store() returns the current setting.
