NAME

CSSM_CL_CrlGetFirstFieldValue — Get the value of the first CRL field (CDSA)

SYNOPSIS

# include <cssm.h>
API:
CSSM_RETURN CSSMAPI CSSM_CL_CrlGetFirstFieldValue
(CSSM_CL_HANDLE CLHandle,
const CSSM_DATA *Crl,
const CSSM_OID *CrlField,
CSSM_HANDLE_PTR ResultsHandle,
uint32 *NumberOfMatchedFields,
CSSM_DATA_PTR *Value)
SPI:
CSSM_RETURN CSSMCLI CL_CrlGetFirstFieldValue
(CSSM_CL_HANDLE CLHandle,
const CSSM_DATA *Crl,
const CSSM_OID *CrlField,
CSSM_HANDLE_PTR ResultsHandle,
uint32 *NumberOfMatchedFields,
CSSM_DATA_PTR *Value)

LIBRARY

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

PARAMETERS

CLHandle (input) 

The handle that describes the add-in Certificate Library module used to perform this function.

Crl (input) 

A pointer to the CSSM_DATA structure that contains the CRL from which the field is to be retrieved.

CrlField (input) 

An object identifier that identifies the field value to be extracted from the CRL.

ResultsHandle (output)
  

A pointer to the CSSM_HANDLE that should be used to obtain any additional matching fields.

NumberOfMatchedFields (output)
  

The total number of fields that match the CrlField OID. This count includes the first match, which was returned by this function.

Value (output) 

A pointer to the structure containing the value of the requested field. The structure and the field at I "(*Value)->Data" are allocated by the service provider. The CSSM_CL_FreeFieldValue() (CSSM API), or CL_FreeFieldValue() (CL SPI), function can be used to deallocate *Value and (*Value)->Data.

DESCRIPTION

This function returns the value of the CRL field designated by the CSSM_OID CrlField. The OID also identifies the data format for the field value returned to the caller. If multiple OIDs name the same CRL field, then each OID defines a distinct data format for the returned field value. The function CSSM_CL_CrlDescribeFormat() (CSSM API), or CL_CrlDescribeFormat() (CL SPI), provides a list of all CSSM_OID values supported by a Certificate Library module for naming fields of a CRL.

If more than one field matches the CrlField OID, the first matching field will be returned. The number of matching fields is an output parameter, as is the ResultsHandle to be used to retrieve the remaining matching fields.

The set of matching fields is determined by this function. The number of matching fields and the field values do not change between this function and subsequent calls to CSSM_CL_CrlGetNextFieldValue() (CSSM API), or CL_CrlGetNextFieldValue() (CL SPI).

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_CL_INVALID_CRL_POINTER
CSSMERR_CL_UNKNOWN_FORMAT
CSSMERR_CL_UNKNOWN_TAG
CSSMERR_CL_NO_FIELD_VALUES
