PKCS12_PARSE(3)			    OpenSSL		       PKCS12_PARSE(3)

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
       corresponding 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.

       The parameter pass is interpreted as a string in	the UTF-8 encoding. If
       it is not valid UTF-8, then it is assumed to be ISO8859-1 instead.

       In particular, this means that passwords	in the locale character	set
       (or code	page on	Windows) must potentially be converted to UTF-8	before
       use. This may include passwords from local text files, or input from
       the terminal or command line. Refer to the documentation	of
       UI_OpenSSL(3), for example.

RETURN VALUES
       PKCS12_parse() returns 1	for success and	zero if	an error occurred.

       The error can be	obtained from ERR_get_error(3)

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 stored in	the private key	EVP_PKEY
       structure.
