Ganesh Murthy created PROTON-1088:
Summary: Add convenience functions to obtain the client
certificate fingerprint, subject subfields
Project: Qpid Proton
Issue Type: Improvement
Affects Versions: 0.11.1
Reporter: Ganesh Murthy
1. Provide a convenience function which will return a an ssl certificate
fingerprint (a sha1 or sha256 hash of the certificate).
-- When you look go to a https site via a web browser, you can look at the
certificate fingerprint by clicking the View Certificate button on the browser.
Add a convenience function to proton which will return the char array of
octets. sha1 hashing produces a 20 octet hash and sha256 provides a 32 octet
hash. The function signature should approximately look like this -
void pn_ssl_get_fingerprint(pn_ssl_t \*ssl0, unsigned char \*md, const char*
2. The subject field on the SSL cert has many subfields like -
C = ISO3166 two character country code
ST = state or province
L = Locality; generally means city
O = Organization - Company Name
OU = Organization Unit - division or unit
CN = CommonName - end entity name e.g. www.example.com
Provide convenience functions to obtain values of the above subfields.
