NE_SSL_CERT_READ(3)			neon API reference		      NE_SSL_CERT_READ(3)

NAME
       ne_ssl_cert_read, ne_ssl_cert_write, ne_ssl_cert_import, ne_ssl_cert_export - functions to
       read or write certificates to and from files or strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ne_ssl.h>

       ne_ssl_certificate *ne_ssl_cert_read(const char *filename);

       int ne_ssl_cert_write(const ne_ssl_certificate *cert, const char *filename);

       ne_ssl_certificate *ne_ssl_cert_import(const char *data);

       char *ne_ssl_cert_export(const ne_ssl_certificate *cert);

DESCRIPTION
       The ne_ssl_cert_write function writes a certificate to a file using the PEM encoding. The
       ne_ssl_cert_export function returns a base64-encoded NUL-terminated string representing
       the certificate. This string is malloc-allocated and should be destroyed using free by the
       caller.

       The ne_ssl_cert_read function reads a certificate from a PEM-encoded file, and returns a
       certificate object. The ne_ssl_cert_import function returns a certificate object from a
       base64-encoded string, data, as returned by ne_ssl_cert_export. The certificate object
       returned by these functions should be destroyed using ne_ssl_cert_free after use.

RETURN VALUE
       ne_ssl_cert_read returns NULL if a certificate could not be read from the file.
       ne_ssl_cert_write returns non-zero if the certificate could not be written to the file.
       ne_ssl_cert_export always returns a NUL-terminated string, and never NULL.
       ne_ssl_cert_import returns NULL if the string was not a valid base64-encoded certificate.

ENCODING FORMATS
       The string produced by ne_ssl_cert_export is the base64 encoding of the DER representation
       of the certificate. The file written by ne_ssl_cert_write uses the PEM format: this is the
       base64 encoding of the DER representation with newlines every 64 characters, and start and
       end marker lines.
