Csr PureBasic Reference Documentation

Csr

A class for generating Certificate Signing Requests (CSR) or for reading an existing CSR.

This class is introduced in Chilkat v9.5.0.65

Object Creation

obj.i = CkCsr::ckCreate()

; Make sure to dispose of the object when finished like this:
CkCsr::ckDispose(obj);

Properties

Declare.s ckCommonName(obj.i)
Declare setCkCommonName(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The common name of the certificate to be generated. For SSL/TLS certificates, this would be the domain name. For email certificates this would be the email address.

It is the value for "CN" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.3")

This property is required for a CSR.

Declare.s ckCompany(obj.i)
Declare setCkCompany(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The company or organization name for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "O" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.10")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

Declare.s ckCompanyDivision(obj.i)
Declare setCkCompanyDivision(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The company division or organizational unit name for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "OU" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.11")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

Declare.s ckCountry(obj.i)
Declare setCkCountry(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The two-letter uppercase country abbreviation, such as "US", for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "C" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.6")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

Declare.s ckDebugLogFilePath(obj.i)
Declare setCkDebugLogFilePath(obj.i, value.s)

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

Declare.s ckEmailAddress(obj.i)
Declare setCkEmailAddress(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The email address for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "E" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "1.2.840.113549.1.9.1")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

Declare.s ckLastErrorHtml(obj.i) ; (read-only)

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

Declare.s ckLastErrorText(obj.i) ; (read-only)

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

Concept of LastErrorText

LastErrorText Standard Information

Declare.s ckLastErrorXml(obj.i) ; (read-only)

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

Declare.i ckLastMethodSuccess(obj.i)
Declare setCkLastMethodSuccess(obj.i, value.i)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of 1 indicates success, a value of 0 indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = 1 and failure = 0.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to 1. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

Declare.s ckLocality(obj.i)
Declare setCkLocality(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The locality (city or town) name for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "L" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.7")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

Declare.s ckState(obj.i)
Declare setCkState(obj.i, value.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The state or province for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "S" (or "ST") in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.8")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

Declare.i ckVerboseLogging(obj.i)
Declare setCkVerboseLogging(obj.i, value.i)

If set to 1, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is 0. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

Declare.s ckVersion(obj.i) ; (read-only)

Version of the component/library, such as "9.5.0.63"

Methods

Declare.i ckGenCsrBd(obj.i, privKey.i, csrData.i)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

Generate a CSR and return the binary DER in csrData.

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.

Declare.s ckGenCsrPem(obj.i, privKey.i)

Declare.s ckGetSubjectField(obj.i, oid.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

Gets a subject field by OID, such as "2.5.4.9". See http://www.alvestrand.no/objectid/2.5.4.html for OID values and meanings.

Returns an empty string on failure. Use the LastMethodSuccess property to check for success.

Declare.i ckLoadCsrPem(obj.i, csrPemStr.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

Loads this CSR object with a CSR PEM. All properties are set to the values found within the CSR.

Declare.i ckSaveLastError(obj.i, path.s)

Saves the last-error information (the contents of LastErrorXml) to an XML formatted file.

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.

Declare.i ckSetSubjectField(obj.i, oid.s, value.s, asnType.s)

Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

Sets a subject field by OID, such as "2.5.4.9". See http://www.alvestrand.no/objectid/2.5.4.html for OID values and meanings.

The asnType can be "UTF8String", "IA5String", or "PrintableString". If you have no specific requirement, or don't know, choose "UTF8String".

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.
