PTX509Certificate

@interface PTX509Certificate : NSObject

This class represents an X509 public-key certificate, as specified in RFC 5280.

  • Retrieves the names of the certificate issuer as a map of OIDs (i.e. one of the object identifiers from the X.500 attribute types) to string values. The issuer field identifies the entity that has signed and issued the certificate. The returned value will contain all of the AttributeTypeAndValue items from all of the RelativeDistinguishedNames in the Name of the issuer. See RFC 5280, section 4.1.2.4 and Appendix A.1 (page 116).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (PTX501DistinguishedName *)GetIssuerField;

    Swift

    func getIssuerField() -> PTX501DistinguishedName!

    Return Value

    an X501DistinguishedName object

  • Retrieves the names of the certificate subject as a map of OIDs (i.e. one of the

    • object identifiers from the X.500 attribute types) to string values. The subject field
    • represents the identity of the entity associated with the certificate’s public key. The
    • returned value will contain all of the AttributeTypeAndValue items from all of the
    • RelativeDistinguishedNames in the Name of the subject. See RFC 5280, section 4.1.2.6
    • and Appendix A.1 (page 116). *
    • - returns: an X501DistinguishedName object

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (PTX501DistinguishedName *)GetSubjectField;

    Swift

    func getSubjectField() -> PTX501DistinguishedName!
  • Retrieves the notBefore time from the certificate’s Validity entry in the form of an integral value representing an epoch time.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (long long)GetNotBeforeEpochTime;

    Swift

    func getNotBeforeEpochTime() -> Int64

    Return Value

    an integer containing an epoch time

  • Retrieves the notAfter time from the certificate’s Validity entry in the form of an integral value representing an epoch time.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (long long)GetNotAfterEpochTime;

    Swift

    func getNotAfterEpochTime() -> Int64

    Return Value

    an integer containing an epoch time

  • Retrieves the version number representing which version of X509 the certificate corresponds to, from the certificate.

    Note

    The X509 version number in the certificate, which we return unchanged here, is zero-indexed and therefore is one less in value than the actual version. e.g. X509v3 is represented by a returned version number of 2.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (unsigned int)GetRawX509VersionNumber;

    Swift

    func getRawX509VersionNumber() -> UInt32

    Return Value

    an integer containing the version number

  • Returns a string representation of the certificate.

    Note

    Output may change in future versions.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (NSString *)ToString;

    Swift

    func toString() -> String!

    Return Value

    a string representation of the certificate.

  • Retrieves, in a string, a text representation of a cryptographically-secure digest of the certificate that can be used to identify it uniquely.

    Note

    Default algorithm parameter is currently SHA-256, but may change in future without further warning, pursuant to security needs.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (NSString *)GetFingerprint:(PTDigestAlgorithmType)in_digest_algorithm;

    Swift

    func getFingerprint(_ in_digest_algorithm: PTDigestAlgorithmType) -> String!

    Parameters

    An

    enumeration representing the digest algorithm to use. Currently supported are SHA-1 (SHA-160), SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512.

    Return Value

    a string representation of the fingerprint, in the form of double ASCII characters representing hex bytes, separated by colons

  • Retrieves the serialNumber entry from the certificate.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (NSData *)GetSerialNumber;

    Swift

    func getSerialNumber() -> Data!

    Return Value

    a big-integer-style container holding bytes representing the components of an integral serial number in big-endian order.

  • Retrieves all extensions (as first specified in V3 of X509, see RFC 5280) from the certificate.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (NSArray<PTX509Extension *> *)GetExtensions;

    Swift

    func getExtensions() -> [PTX509Extension]!

    Return Value

    a container of X509Extension objects.

  • Retrieves the certificate as binary DER-encoded data. (DER is short for Distinguished Encoding Rules.).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (NSData *)GetData;

    Swift

    func getData() -> Data!

    Return Value

    a container of bytes representing the certificate, encoded as binary DER.

  • Undocumented

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (instancetype)init;

    Swift

    init!()
