B<OSSL_DECODER> is a method for decoders, which know how to
decode encoded data into an object of some type that the rest
of OpenSSL knows how to handle.
OSSL_DECODER_fetch() looks for an algorithm within the provider that
has been loaded into the B<OSSL_LIB_CTX> given by I<ctx>, having the
name given by I<name> and the properties given by I<properties>.
The I<name> determines what type of object the fetched decoder
method is expected to be able to decode, and the properties are
used to determine the expected output type.
For known properties and the values they may have, please have a look
in L<provider-encoder(7)/Names and properties>.
OSSL_DECODER_up_ref() increments the reference count for the given
OSSL_DECODER_free() decrements the reference count for the given
I<decoder>, and when the count reaches zero, frees it.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_provider() returns the provider of the given
OSSL_DECODER_get0_properties() returns the property definition associated
with the given I<decoder>.
OSSL_DECODER_is_a() checks if I<decoder> is an implementation
of an algorithm that's identifiable with I<name>.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_name() returns the name used to fetch the given I<decoder>.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_description() returns a description of the I<decoder>, meant
for display and human consumption. The description is at the discretion
of the I<decoder> implementation.
OSSL_DECODER_names_do_all() traverses all names for the given
I<decoder>, and calls I<fn> with each name and I<data> as arguments.
OSSL_DECODER_do_all_provided() traverses all decoder
implementations by all activated providers in the library context
I<libctx>, and for each of the implementations, calls I<fn> with the
implementation method and I<arg> as arguments.
OSSL_DECODER_gettable_params() returns an L<OSSL_PARAM(3)>
array of parameter descriptors.
OSSL_DECODER_get_params() attempts to get parameters specified
with an L<OSSL_PARAM(3)> array I<params>. Parameters that the
implementation doesn't recognise should be ignored.
OSSL_DECODER_fetch() returns a pointer to an OSSL_DECODER object,
or NULL on error.
OSSL_DECODER_up_ref() returns 1 on success, or 0 on error.
OSSL_DECODER_free() doesn't return any value.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_provider() returns a pointer to a provider object, or
NULL on error.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_properties() returns a pointer to a property
definition string, or NULL on error.
OSSL_DECODER_is_a() returns 1 if I<decoder> was identifiable,
otherwise 0.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_name() returns the algorithm name from the provided
implementation for the given I<decoder>. Note that the I<decoder> may have
multiple synonyms associated with it. In this case the first name from the
algorithm definition is returned. Ownership of the returned string is retained
by the I<decoder> object and should not be freed by the caller.
OSSL_DECODER_get0_description() returns a pointer to a description, or NULL if
there isn't one.
OSSL_DECODER_names_do_all() returns 1 if the callback was called for all
names. A return value of 0 means that the callback was not called for any names.
=head1 NOTES
OSSL_DECODER_fetch() may be called implicitly by other fetching
functions, using the same library context and properties.
Any other API that uses keys will typically do this.
To list all decoders in a provider to a bio_out:
static void collect_decoders(OSSL_DECODER *decoder, void *stack)
STACK_OF(OSSL_DECODER) *decoder_stack = stack;
sk_OSSL_DECODER_push(decoder_stack, decoder);
void print_name(const char *name, void *vdata)
BIO *bio = vdata;
BIO_printf(bio, "%s ", name);
int i;
decoders = sk_OSSL_DECODER_new_null();
BIO_printf(bio_out, "DECODERs provided by %s:\n", provider);
OSSL_DECODER_do_all_provided(NULL, collect_decoders,
for (i = 0; i < sk_OSSL_DECODER_num(decoders); i++) {
OSSL_DECODER *decoder = sk_OSSL_DECODER_value(decoders, i);
if (strcmp(OSSL_PROVIDER_get0_name(OSSL_DECODER_get0_provider(decoder)),
provider) != 0)
if (OSSL_DECODER_names_do_all(decoder, print_name, bio_out))
BIO_printf(bio_out, "\n");
sk_OSSL_DECODER_pop_free(decoders, OSSL_DECODER_free);
