PHP openssl_x509_parse

PHP original manual for openssl_x509_parse [ show | ]


(PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)

openssl_x509_parseParse an X509 certificate and return the information as an array


array openssl_x509_parse ( mixed $x509cert [, bool $shortnames= true ] )

openssl_x509_parse() returns information about the supplied x509cert , including fields such as subject name, issuer name, purposes, valid from and valid to dates etc.




shortnames controls how the data is indexed in the array - if shortnames is TRUE (the default) then fields will be indexed with the short name form, otherwise, the long name form will be used - e.g.: CN is the shortname form of commonName.

Return Values

The structure of the returned data is (deliberately) not yet documented, as it is still subject to change.
