SSL_get_peer_cert_chain - get the X509 certificate chain
of the peer
STACKOF(X509) *SSL_get_peer_cert_chain(SSL *ssl);
SSL_get_peer_cert_chain() returns a pointer to
STACKOF(X509) certificates forming the certificate chain
of the peer. If called on the client side, the stack also
contains the peer's certificate; if called on the server
side, the peer's certificate must be obtained separately
using SSL_get_peer_certificate(3). If the peer did not
present a certificate, NULL is returned.
The peer certificate chain is not necessarily available
after reusing a session, in which case a NULL pointer is
The reference count of the STACKOF(X509) object is not
incremented. If the corresponding session is freed, the
pointer must not be used any longer.
The following return values can occur:
No certificate was presented by the peer or no connection
was established or the certificate chain is no
longer available when a session is reused.
Pointer to a STACKOF(X509)
The return value points to the certificate chain presented
by the peer.
