Subject RE: [Rampart/C | Neethi/C] Possible to get the currentx509securitycertificate from a policy?
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2007 10:03:40 GMT
Excellent, the following code works fine. Thanks very much for your
help.

-----

rp_secpolicy_t* policy = rp_secpolicy_builder_build( axisEnv, policy );

rampart_context_t* context = rampart_context_create( axisEnv );
rampart_context_set_secpolicy( context, axisEnv, policy );
axis2_char_t* filename = rampart_context_get_certificate_file( context,
axisEnv );
rampart_context_free( context, axisEnv );

X509* cert = NULL;
openssl_x509_load_from_pem( axisEnv, filename, &cert );

-----

Cheers,
Jamie
