get-ssl-verify-result

Arguments: stream

get-ssl-verify-result returns information about the success or failure of peer certificate verification. Due to the way OpenSSL is implemented, this function is only suitable for client use.

stream must be an SSL client or server stream (such as is created by make-ssl-server-stream and make-ssl-client-stream).

get-ssl-verify-result returns two values. The first value is a numeric code indicating the status of verification. 0 indicates successful verification. The second value is a string with a text representation of the status.

Note, if SSL handshake has not yet been performed, or if the peer did not provide a certificate, this function returns an OK status.

The possible return values are shown in the following information copied from the OpenSSL documentation. The numeric value (0, 2, 3, 4, etc.) is the first returned value and the string is the second. The string does not include the capitalized and underscored descriptor. Additional information not included in the returned string is included in this list. Thus, when the peer certificate verification is sucessful, 0 and "ok" are returned. X509_V_OK and 'the operation was successful.' are not part of the string.
