NE_SSL_CERT_READ(3)	      neon API reference	   NE_SSL_CERT_READ(3)

NAME
       ne_ssl_cert_read, ne_ssl_cert_write, ne_ssl_cert_import,
       ne_ssl_cert_export - functions to read or write certificates to and
       from files or strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<ne_ssl.h>

       ne_ssl_certificate *ne_ssl_cert_read(const char *filename);

       int ne_ssl_cert_write(const ne_ssl_certificate *cert,
			     const char	*filename);

       ne_ssl_certificate *ne_ssl_cert_import(const char *data);

       char *ne_ssl_cert_export(const ne_ssl_certificate *cert);

DESCRIPTION
       The ne_ssl_cert_write function writes a certificate to a	file using the
       PEM encoding. The ne_ssl_cert_export function returns a base64-encoded
       NUL-terminated string representing the certificate. This	string is
       malloc-allocated	and should be destroyed	using free by the caller.

       The ne_ssl_cert_read function reads a certificate from a	PEM-encoded
       file, and returns a certificate object. The ne_ssl_cert_import function
       returns a certificate object from a base64-encoded string, data,	as
       returned	by ne_ssl_cert_export. The certificate object returned by
       these functions should be destroyed using ne_ssl_cert_free after	use.

RETURN VALUE
       ne_ssl_cert_read	returns	NULL if	a certificate could not	be read	from
       the file.  ne_ssl_cert_write returns non-zero if	the certificate	could
       not be written to the file.  ne_ssl_cert_export always returns a
       NUL-terminated string, and never	NULL.  ne_ssl_cert_import returns NULL
       if the string was not a valid base64-encoded certificate.

ENCODING FORMATS
       The string produced by ne_ssl_cert_export is the	base64 encoding	of the
       DER representation of the certificate. The file written by
       ne_ssl_cert_write uses the PEM format: this is the base64 encoding of
       the DER representation with newlines every 64 characters, and start and
       end marker lines.
