NAME

CSSM_TP_CertCreateTemplate — Allocate and initialize template memory (CDSA)

SYNOPSIS

# include <cssm.h>
API:
CSSM_RETURN CSSMAPI CSSM_TP_CertCreateTemplate
(CSSM_TP_HANDLE TPHandle,
CSSM_CL_HANDLE CLHandle,
uint32 NumberOfFields,
const CSSM_FIELD *CertFields,
CSSM_DATA_PTR CertTemplate)
SPI:
CSSM_RETURN CSSMTPI TP_CertCreateTemplate
(CSSM_TP_HANDLE TPHandle,
CSSM_CL_HANDLE CLHandle,
uint32 NumberOfFields,
const CSSM_FIELD *CertFields,
CSSM_DATA_PTR CertTemplate)

LIBRARY

Common Security Services Manager library (cdsa$incssm300_shr.exe)

PARAMETERS

TPHandle (input) 

The handle that describes the add-in trust policy module used to perform this function.

CLHandle (input) 

The handle that describes the certificate library module used to perform this function.

NumberOfFields (input)
  

The number of certificate field values specified in the CertFields.

CertFields (input)
  

A pointer to an array of OID/value pairs that identifies the field values to initialize a new certificate.

CertTemplate (output)
  

A pointer to a CSSM_DATA structure that will contain the unsigned certificate template as a result of this function.

DESCRIPTION

This function allocates and initializes memory for an encoded certificate template output in CertTemplate->Data. The template values are specified by the input OID/value pairs contained in CertFields. The initialization process includes encoding all certificate field values according to the certificate type and certificate template encoding supported by the trust policy library module. The CertTemplate output is an unsigned certificate template in the format supported by the TP.

The memory for CertTemplate->Data is allocated by the service provider using the calling application's memory management routines. The application must deallocate the memory.

RETURN VALUE

A CSSM_RETURN value indicating success or specifying a particular error condition. The value CSSM_OK indicates success. All other values represent an error condition.

ERRORS

Errors are described in the CDSA Technical Standard.

CSSMERR_TP_INVALID_CL_HANDLE
CSSMERR_TP_INVALID_FIELD_POINTER
CSSMERR_TP_UNKNOWN_TAG
CSSMERR_TP_INVALID_NUMBER_OF_FIELDS
