keysstore

keysstore — Keys store implementation for NSS.

Stability Level

Stable, unless otherwise indicated

Types and Values

Description

Nss keys store that uses Simple Keys Store under the hood. Uses the Nss DB as a backing store for the finding keys, but the NSS DB is not written to by the keys store. So, if store->findkey is done and the key is not found in the simple keys store, the NSS DB is looked up. If store is called to adopt a key, that key is not written to the NSS DB. Thus, the NSS DB can be used to pre-load keys and becomes an alternate source of keys for xmlsec

Functions

xmlSecNssKeysStoreGetKlass ()

xmlSecKeyStoreId
xmlSecNssKeysStoreGetKlass (void);

The Nss list based keys store klass.

Returns

Nss list based keys store klass.


xmlSecNssKeysStoreAdoptKey ()

int
xmlSecNssKeysStoreAdoptKey (xmlSecKeyStorePtr store,
                            xmlSecKeyPtr key);

Adds key to the store .

Parameters

store

the pointer to Nss keys store.

key

the pointer to key.

Returns

0 on success or a negative value if an error occurs.


xmlSecNssKeysStoreLoad ()
