X509_NEW(3)			    OpenSSL			   X509_NEW(3)

NAME
       X509_chain_up_ref, X509_new, X509_free, X509_up_ref - X509 certificate
       ASN1 allocation functions

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/x509.h>

	X509 *X509_new(void);
	void X509_free(X509 *a);
	int X509_up_ref(X509 *a);
	STACK_OF(X509) *X509_chain_up_ref(STACK_OF(X509) *x);

DESCRIPTION
       The X509	ASN1 allocation	routines, allocate and free an X509 structure,
       which represents	an X509	certificate.

       X509_new() allocates and	initializes a X509 structure with reference
       count 1.

       X509_free() decrements the reference count of X509 structure a and
       frees it	up if the reference count is zero. If a	is NULL	nothing	is
       done.

       X509_up_ref() increments	the reference count of a.

       X509_chain_up_ref() increases the reference count of all	certificates
       in chain	x and returns a	copy of	the stack.

NOTES
       The function X509_up_ref() if useful if a certificate structure is
       being used by several different operations each of which	will free it
       up after	use: this avoids the need to duplicate the entire certificate
       structure.

       The function X509_chain_up_ref()	doesn't	just up	the reference count of
       each certificate	it also	returns	a copy of the stack, using
       sk_X509_dup(), but it serves a similar purpose: the returned chain
       persists	after the original has been freed.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails,	X509_new() returns NULL	and sets an error code
       that can	be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).  Otherwise it returns a
       pointer to the newly allocated structure.

       X509_up_ref() returns 1 for success and 0 for failure.

       X509_chain_up_ref() returns a copy of the stack or NULL if an error
       occurred.
