NAME
       X509_check_ca - check if	given certificate is CA	certificate

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/x509v3.h>

	int X509_check_ca(X509 *cert);

DESCRIPTION
       This function checks if given certificate is CA certificate (can	be
       used to sign other certificates).

RETURN VALUES
       Function	return 0, if it	is not CA certificate, 1 if it is proper
       X509v3 CA certificate with basicConstraints extension CA:TRUE, 3, if it
       is self-signed X509 v1 certificate, 4, if it is certificate with
       keyUsage	extension with bit keyCertSign set, but	without
       basicConstraints, and 5 if it has outdated Netscape Certificate Type
       extension telling that it is CA certificate.

       Actually, any non-zero value means that this certificate	could have
       been used to sign other certificates.
