=head1 NAME
- Functions to create and manage a stack of SRP user verifier information
#include <openssl/srp.h>
The following functions have been deprecated since OpenSSL 3.0, and can be
hidden entirely by defining B<OPENSSL_API_COMPAT> with a suitable version value,
see L<openssl_user_macros(7)>:
SRP_VBASE *SRP_VBASE_new(char *seed_key);
void SRP_VBASE_free(SRP_VBASE *vb);
int SRP_VBASE_init(SRP_VBASE *vb, char *verifier_file);
int SRP_VBASE_add0_user(SRP_VBASE *vb, SRP_user_pwd *user_pwd);
SRP_user_pwd *SRP_VBASE_get1_by_user(SRP_VBASE *vb, char *username);
SRP_user_pwd *SRP_VBASE_get_by_user(SRP_VBASE *vb, char *username);
All of the functions described on this page are deprecated. There are no
available replacement functions at this time.
The SRP_VBASE_new() function allocates a structure to store server side SRP
verifier information.
If B<seed_key> is not NULL a copy is stored and used to generate dummy parameters
for users that are not found by SRP_VBASE_get1_by_user(). This allows the server
to hide the fact that it doesn't have a verifier for a particular username,
as described in section 'Unknown SRP' of RFC 5054.
The seed string should contain random NUL terminated binary data (therefore
the random data should not contain NUL bytes!).
The SRP_VBASE_free() function frees up the B<vb> structure.
If B<vb> is NULL, nothing is done.
The SRP_VBASE_init() function parses the information in a verifier file and
populates the B<vb> structure.
The verifier file is a text file containing multiple entries, whose format is:
flag base64(verifier) base64(salt) username gNid userinfo(optional)
where the flag can be 'V' (valid) or 'R' (revoked).
Note that the base64 encoding used here is non-standard so it is recommended
to use L<openssl-srp(1)> to generate this file.
The SRP_VBASE_add0_user() function adds the B<user_pwd> verifier information
to the B<vb> structure. See L<SRP_user_pwd_new(3)> to create and populate this
The library takes ownership of B<user_pwd>, it should not be freed by the caller.
The SRP_VBASE_get1_by_user() function returns the password info for the user
whose username matches B<username>. It replaces the deprecated
If no matching user is found but a seed_key and default gN parameters have been
set, dummy authentication information is generated from the seed_key, allowing
the server to hide the fact that it doesn't have a verifier for a particular
username. When using SRP as a TLS authentication mechanism, this will cause
the handshake to proceed normally but the first client will be rejected with
a "bad_record_mac" alert, as if the password was incorrect.
If no matching user is found and the seed_key is not set, NULL is returned.
Ownership of the returned pointer is released to the caller, it must be freed
with SRP_user_pwd_free().
SRP_VBASE_init() returns B<SRP_NO_ERROR> (0) on success and a positive value
on failure.
The error codes are B<SRP_ERR_OPEN_FILE> if the file could not be opened,
B<SRP_ERR_VBASE_INCOMPLETE_FILE> if the file could not be parsed,
B<SRP_ERR_MEMORY> on memory allocation failure and B<SRP_ERR_VBASE_BN_LIB>
for invalid decoded parameter values.
SRP_VBASE_add0_user() returns 1 on success and 0 on failure.
