gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file - Linux


gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file is a function that sets the OCSP status request file for the specified certificate. This file contains information about the OCSP responder and the certificate whose status is being requested.


gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file(certificate, filename)
  • certificate: The certificate to set the OCSP status request file for.
  • filename: The name of the file containing the OCSP status request.


  • filename: The name of the file containing the OCSP status request.


The following example sets the OCSP status request file for the certificate cert:

gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file(cert, "ocsp.req");

Common Issues

1. I get an error when trying to set the OCSP status request file.

Possible原因: The file does not exist or is not in the correct format.

Solution: Ensure that the file exists and is in the correct format.

2. I am not getting any results from the OCSP responder.

Possible原因: The OCSP responder is not reachable, offline, or is not responding.

Solution: Check if the OCSP responder is reachable and online. If it is, try refreshing the OCSP status request.


gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file can be used with other GNUTLS functions to perform OCSP validation on certificates. For example, the following code snippet retrieves the OCSP status for a certificate and prints it to the console:

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int main() {
  gnutls_certificate_t cert;
  gnutls_ocsp_status_t status;

  // Initialize the GNUTLS library

  // Load the certificate
  gnutls_certificate_load_file(&cert, "cert.pem");

  // Set the OCSP status request file
  gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file(&cert, "ocsp.req");

  // Retrieve the OCSP status
  gnutls_ocsp_status_request_single(&status, &cert);

  // Parse the OCSP status
  int ocsp_error;
  gnutls_ocsp_status_parse(&ocsp_error, &status);

  // Print the OCSP status to the console
  printf("OCSP status: %s\n", gnutls_ocsp_status_str(ocsp_error));

  // Clean up

  return 0;
