CMS_GET0_TYPE(3)		    OpenSSL		      CMS_GET0_TYPE(3)

NAME
       CMS_get0_type, CMS_set1_eContentType, CMS_get0_eContentType,
       CMS_get0_content	- get and set CMS content types	and content

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/cms.h>

	const ASN1_OBJECT *CMS_get0_type(const CMS_ContentInfo *cms);
	int CMS_set1_eContentType(CMS_ContentInfo *cms,	const ASN1_OBJECT *oid);
	const ASN1_OBJECT *CMS_get0_eContentType(CMS_ContentInfo *cms);
	ASN1_OCTET_STRING **CMS_get0_content(CMS_ContentInfo *cms);

DESCRIPTION
       CMS_get0_type() returns the content type	of a CMS_ContentInfo structure
       as and ASN1_OBJECT pointer. An application can then decide how to
       process the CMS_ContentInfo structure based on this value.

       CMS_set1_eContentType() sets the	embedded content type of a
       CMS_ContentInfo structure. It should be called with CMS functions with
       the CMS_PARTIAL flag and	before the structure is	finalised, otherwise
       the results are undefined.

       ASN1_OBJECT *CMS_get0_eContentType() returns a pointer to the embedded
       content type.

       CMS_get0_content() returns a pointer to the ASN1_OCTET_STRING pointer
       containing the embedded content.

NOTES
       As the 0	implies	CMS_get0_type(), CMS_get0_eContentType() and
       CMS_get0_content() return internal pointers which should	not be freed
       up.  CMS_set1_eContentType() copies the supplied	OID and	it should be
       freed up	after use.

       The ASN1_OBJECT values returned can be converted	to an integer NID
       value using OBJ_obj2nid(). For the currently supported content types
       the following values are	returned:

	NID_pkcs7_data
	NID_pkcs7_signed
	NID_pkcs7_digest
	NID_id_smime_ct_compressedData:
	NID_pkcs7_encrypted
	NID_pkcs7_enveloped

       The return value	of CMS_get0_content() is a pointer to the
       ASN1_OCTET_STRING content pointer. That means that for example:

	ASN1_OCTET_STRING **pconf = CMS_get0_content(cms);

       *pconf could be NULL if there is	no embedded content. Applications can
       access, modify or create	the embedded content in	a CMS_ContentInfo
       structure using this function. Applications usually will	not need to
       modify the embedded content as it is normally set by higher level
       functions.

RETURN VALUES
       CMS_get0_type() and CMS_get0_eContentType() return and ASN1_OBJECT
       structure.

       CMS_set1_eContentType() returns 1 for success or	0 if an	error
       occurred.  The error can	be obtained from ERR_get_error(3).
