X509V3_SET_CTX(3)		    OpenSSL		     X509V3_SET_CTX(3)

NAME
       X509V3_set_ctx, X509V3_set_issuer_pkey -	X.509 v3 extension generation
       utilities

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/x509v3.h>

	void X509V3_set_ctx(X509V3_CTX *ctx, X509 *issuer, X509	*subject,
			    X509_REQ *req, X509_CRL *crl, int flags);
	int X509V3_set_issuer_pkey(X509V3_CTX *ctx, EVP_PKEY *pkey);

DESCRIPTION
       X509V3_set_ctx()	fills in the basic fields of ctx of type X509V3_CTX,
       providing details potentially needed by functions producing X509	v3
       extensions, e.g., to look up values for filling in authority key
       identifiers.  Any of subj, req, or crl may be provided, pointing	to a
       certificate, certification request, or certificate revocation list,
       respectively.  If subj or crl is	provided, issuer should	point to its
       issuer, for instance to help generating an authority key	identifier
       extension.  Note	that if	subj is	provided, issuer may be	the same as
       subj, which means that subj is self-issued (or even self-signed).
       flags may be 0 or contain X509V3_CTX_TEST, which	means that just	the
       syntax of extension definitions is to be	checked	without	actually
       producing an extension, or X509V3_CTX_REPLACE, which means that each
       X.509v3 extension added as defined in some configuration	section	shall
       replace any already existing extension with the same OID.

       X509V3_set_issuer_pkey()	explicitly sets	the issuer private key of the
       certificate that	has been provided in ctx.  This	should be done for
       self-issued certificates	(which may be self-signed or not) to provide
       fallback	data for the authority key identifier extension.

RETURN VALUES
       X509V3_set_ctx()	and X509V3_set_issuer_pkey() return 1 on success and 0
       on error.

HISTORY
       X509V3_set_issuer_pkey()	was added in OpenSSL 3.0.

       CTX_TEST	was deprecated in OpenSSL 3.0; use X509V3_CTX_TEST instead.
