Detailed Description

Certificate information type.

This class represents a type of information being stored in a certificate. It can be created either using a known type (from the Known enumerator) or an identifier string (usually an OID). Types created either way are interchangeable.

Types also have the notion of a Section. Some types may reside in the Distinguished Name field of a certificate, and some types may reside in the Subject Alternative Name field. This class is capable of representing a type from either section.

In the general case, applications will want to use the CertificateInfoTypeKnown enumerator types. These are from RFC3280 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3280.txt) except where shown.

The entries for IncorporationLocality, IncorporationState and IncorporationCountry are the same as Locality, State and Country respectively, except that the Extended Validation (EV) certificate guidelines (published by the Certificate Authority / Browser Forum, see http://www.cabforum.org) distinguish between the place of where the company does business (which is the Locality / State / Country combination) and the jurisdiction where the company is legally incorporated (the IncorporationLocality / IncorporationState / IncorporationCountry combination).

Member Function Documentation

QString QCA::CertificateInfoType::id ( ) const

The type as an identifier string.

For types that have OIDs, this function returns an OID in string form. For types that do not have OIDs, this function returns an internal identifier string whose first character is not a digit (this allows you to tell the difference between an OID and an internal identifier).

It is hereby stated that General Names (of the X.509 Subject Alternative Name) shall use the internal identifier format "GeneralName.[rfc field name]". For example, the rfc822Name field would have the identifier "GeneralName.rfc822Name".

Applications should not store, use, or compare against internal identifiers unless the identifiers are explicitly documented (e.g. GeneralName).

CertificateInfoTypeKnown QCA::CertificateInfoType::known ( ) const

The type as part of the CertificateInfoTypeKnown enumerator.

This function may return a value that does not exist in the enumerator. In that case, you may use id() to determine the type.

bool QCA::CertificateInfoType::operator!= ( const CertificateInfoType other) const

Inequality operator.

bool QCA::CertificateInfoType::operator< ( const CertificateInfoType other) const

Comparison operator.
