Add certificate request information to a Stringlist (Stringlist class)

[Requires Janus Network Security]

This callable method adds lines from the information portion of an SSL certificate to the end of a Stringlist.


[%rc =] sl:AppendCertificateRequestInfo( certificateRequest)

Syntax terms

%rc An, optional, numeric variable that is set to zero if the function is a success. The possible return codes are described elsewhere in Return codes.
sl A Stringlist object.
certificateRequest A Stringlist object that contains the raw text of an SSL certificate request.

Usage notes

  • The updated Stringlist contains an arbitrary amount of information in an arbitrary order. Each list item is in "ID=value" format. These are the possible IDs:
    S.CSubject country
    S.SSubject state or province
    S.LSubject locality - city, town, village, etc.
    S.OSubject organization
    S.OUSubject organization unit
    S.CNSubject common name
    I.CIssuer country
    I.SIssuer state or province
    I.LIssuer locality - city, town, village, etc.
    I.OIssuer organization
    I.OUIssuer organization unit
    I.CNIssuer common name
    EFFEffective date in YYMMDDHHMISS format (GMT)
    EXPExpiration date in YYMMDDHHMISS format (GMT)
    ALGKey algorithm - currently always RSA
    NPublic modulus in hexadecimal
    EPublic exponent in hexadecimal


In the following example, a certificate request is hard-coded into one Stringlist, then the information contained in the certificate is translated via AppendCertificateInfo into another Stringlist:

b %sl is object stringlist %creq is object stringlist %sl = new %creq = new text to %creq raw -----BEGIN NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- MIIBSTCB9AIBADCBkzELMAkGA1UEBhMCVVMxCzAJBgNVBAgTAk1BMRIwEAYDVQQH EwlDYW1icmlkZ2UxHTAbBgNVBAoTFFNpcml1cyBTb2Z0d2FyZSBJbmMuMR0wGwYD VQQLExRTb2Z0d2FyZSBEZXZlbG9wbWVudDElMCMGA1UEAxMcd3d3LnNpcml1cy1z b2Z0d2FyZS5jb206NDQ0NDBZMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA0gAMEUCQGeK7FoF5KOV fkJeY+/mGFB/mnqOK+lXtKkyGsvE2IT3sWe6bt4/UBxAmryflxa1xnRirTBcvyr2 092HW5Cie90CAQMwDQYJKoZIhvcNAQEEBQADQQAfh/JQALxnQo9YFczgpSbLlN6i UKSS4qVe1e2resil+rSmrG+W9YTBIDnT2GcdotAIF9L3/6LQdmuipXgicg3m -----END NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- end text %sl:appendCertificateInfo(%creq) %sl:print end

The result is something like:

S.C=US S.S=MA S.L=Cambridge S.O=Sirius Software Inc. S.OU=Software Development ALG=RSA N=678AEC5A05E4A3957E425E63EFE618507F9A7A8E ... 305CBF2AF6D3DD875B90A27BDD E=03
