openssl_x509_checkpurpose

openssl_x509_checkpurpose

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)

openssl_x509_checkpurpose -- Verifies if a certificate can be used for a particular purpose

Description

bool openssl_x509_checkpurpose ( mixed x509cert, int purpose [, array cainfo [, string untrustedfile]] )

Returns TRUE if the certificate can be used for the intended purpose, FALSE if it cannot, or -1 on error.

openssl_x509_checkpurpose() examines the certificate specified by x509cert to see if it can be used for the purpose specified by purpose.

cainfo should be an array of trusted CA files/dirs as described in Certificate Verification. It defaults to an empty array.

untrustedfile, if specified, is the name of a PEM encoded file holding certificates that can be used to help verify the certificate, although no trust in placed in the certificates that come from that file.
