=head1 NAME
- certificate and CRL loading functions
#include <openssl/x509.h>
X509 *X509_load_http(const char *url, BIO *bio, BIO *rbio, int timeout);
X509_CRL *X509_CRL_load_http(const char *url, BIO *bio, BIO *rbio, int timeout);
The following macros 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)>:
#define X509_http_nbio(rctx, pcert)
#define X509_CRL_http_nbio(rctx, pcrl)
X509_load_http() and X509_CRL_load_http() loads a certificate or a CRL,
respectively, in ASN.1 format using HTTP from the given B<url>.
If B<bio> is given and B<rbio> is NULL then this BIO is used instead of an
internal one for connecting, writing the request, and reading the response.
If both B<bio> and B<rbio> are given (which may be memory BIOs, for instance)
then no explicit connection is attempted,
B<bio> is used for writing the request, and B<rbio> for reading the response.
If the B<timeout> parameter is > 0 this indicates the maximum number of seconds
to wait until the transfer is complete.
A value of 0 enables waiting indefinitely,
while a value < 0 immediately leads to a timeout condition.
X509_http_nbio() and X509_CRL_http_nbio() are macros for backward compatibility
that have the same effect as the functions above but with infinite timeout
and without the possibility to specify custom BIOs.
On success the function yield the loaded value, else NULL.
Error conditions include connection/transfer timeout, parse errors, etc.
