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/optional)
  

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

CSPHandle (input/optional)
  

The handle that describes the add-in Cryptographic Service Provider module used to perform this function.

OldCrlTemplate (input/optional)
  

A pointer to the CSSM_DATA structure containing an existing certificate revocation list. If this input is NULL, a new list is created or the operation fails.

CertGroupToBeRevoked (input)
  

A group of one or more certificates that partially or fully represent the certificate to be revoked by this operation. The first certificate in the group is the target certificate. The use of subsequent certificates is specific to the trust domain. For example, in a hierarchical trust model subsequent members are intermediate certificates of a certificate chain.

RevokerCertGroup (input)
  

A group of one or more certificates that partially or fully represent the revoking entity for this operation. The first certificate in the group is the target certificate representing the revoker. The use of subsequent certificates is specific to the trust domain.

RevokerVerifyContext (input)
  

A structure containing policy elements useful in verifying certificates and their use with respect to a security policy. Optional elements in the verify context left unspecified will cause the internal default values to be used. Default values are specified in the TP module vendor release documents. This context is used to verify the revoker certificate group.

RevokerVerifyResult (output/optional)
  

A pointer to a structure containing information generated during the verification process. The information can include:

Evidence

(output/optional)

NumberOfEvidences

(output/optional)

Reason (input/optional)
  

The reason for revoking the subject certificate.

NewCrlTemplate (output/optional)
  

A pointer to the CSSM_DATA structure containing the updated certificate revocation list. If the pointer is NULL, an error has occurred.

DESCRIPTION

The TP module determines whether the revoking certificate group can revoke the subject certificate group. The revoker certificate group is first authenticated and its applicability to perform this operation is determined. Once the trust is established, the TP revokes the subject certificate by adding it to the certificate revocation list.

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 are described in the CDSA Technical Standard.
