var ErrUnsupportedAlgorithm = errors.New("x509: cannot verify signature: algorithm unimplemented")

ErrUnsupportedAlgorithm results from attempting to perform an operation that involves algorithms that are not currently implemented.

var IncorrectPasswordError = errors.New("x509: decryption password incorrect")

IncorrectPasswordError is returned when an incorrect password is detected.

func CreateCertificate

func CreateCertificate(rand io.Reader, template, parent *Certificate, pub, priv interface{}) ([]byte, error)

CreateCertificate creates a new X.509 v3 certificate based on a template. The following members of template are currently used:

- AuthorityKeyId
- BasicConstraintsValid
- CRLDistributionPoints
- DNSNames
- EmailAddresses
- ExcludedDNSDomains
- ExcludedEmailAddresses
- ExcludedIPRanges
- ExcludedURIDomains
- ExtKeyUsage
- ExtraExtensions
- IPAddresses
- IsCA
- IssuingCertificateURL
- KeyUsage
- MaxPathLen
- MaxPathLenZero
- NotAfter
- NotBefore
- OCSPServer
- PermittedDNSDomains
- PermittedDNSDomainsCritical
- PermittedEmailAddresses
- PermittedIPRanges
- PermittedURIDomains
- PolicyIdentifiers
- SerialNumber
- SignatureAlgorithm
- Subject
- SubjectKeyId
- URIs
- UnknownExtKeyUsage

The certificate is signed by parent. If parent is equal to template then the certificate is self-signed. The parameter pub is the public key of the certificate to be generated and priv is the private key of the signer.

The returned slice is the certificate in DER encoding.

The currently supported key types are *rsa.PublicKey, *ecdsa.PublicKey and ed25519.PublicKey. pub must be a supported key type, and priv must be a crypto.Signer with a supported public key.

The AuthorityKeyId will be taken from the SubjectKeyId of parent, if any, unless the resulting certificate is self-signed. Otherwise the value from template will be used.

If SubjectKeyId from template is empty and the template is a CA, SubjectKeyId will be generated from the hash of the public key.

func CreateCertificateRequest

func CreateCertificateRequest(rand io.Reader, template *CertificateRequest, priv interface{}) (csr []byte, err error)

CreateCertificateRequest creates a new certificate request based on a template. The following members of template are used:

- SignatureAlgorithm
- Subject
- DNSNames
- EmailAddresses
- IPAddresses
- URIs
- ExtraExtensions
- Attributes (deprecated)

priv is the private key to sign the CSR with, and the corresponding public key will be included in the CSR. It must implement crypto.Signer and its Public() method must return a *rsa.PublicKey or a *ecdsa.PublicKey or a ed25519.PublicKey. (A *rsa.PrivateKey, *ecdsa.PrivateKey or ed25519.PrivateKey satisfies this.)

The returned slice is the certificate request in DER encoding.

func CreateRevocationList

func CreateRevocationList(rand io.Reader, template *RevocationList, issuer *Certificate, priv crypto.Signer) ([]byte, error)

CreateRevocationList creates a new X.509 v2 Certificate Revocation List, according to RFC 5280, based on template.

The CRL is signed by priv which should be the private key associated with the public key in the issuer certificate.

The issuer may not be nil, and the crlSign bit must be set in KeyUsage in order to use it as a CRL issuer.

The issuer distinguished name CRL field and authority key identifier extension are populated using the issuer certificate. issuer must have SubjectKeyId set.

func DecryptPEMBlock

func DecryptPEMBlock(b *pem.Block, password []byte) ([]byte, error)

DecryptPEMBlock takes a PEM block encrypted according to RFC 1423 and the password used to encrypt it and returns a slice of decrypted DER encoded bytes. It inspects the DEK-Info header to determine the algorithm used for decryption. If no DEK-Info header is present, an error is returned. If an incorrect password is detected an IncorrectPasswordError is returned. Because of deficiencies in the format, it's not always possible to detect an incorrect password. In these cases no error will be returned but the decrypted DER bytes will be random noise.

Deprecated: Legacy PEM encryption as specified in RFC 1423 is insecure by design. Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

func EncryptPEMBlock

func EncryptPEMBlock(rand io.Reader, blockType string, data, password []byte, alg PEMCipher) (*pem.Block, error)

EncryptPEMBlock returns a PEM block of the specified type holding the given DER encoded data encrypted with the specified algorithm and password according to RFC 1423.

Deprecated: Legacy PEM encryption as specified in RFC 1423 is insecure by design. Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

func IsEncryptedPEMBlock

func IsEncryptedPEMBlock(b *pem.Block) bool

IsEncryptedPEMBlock returns whether the PEM block is password encrypted according to RFC 1423.

Deprecated: Legacy PEM encryption as specified in RFC 1423 is insecure by design. Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

func MarshalECPrivateKey

This kind of key is commonly encoded in PEM blocks of type "PUBLIC KEY".

func ParseCRL

func ParseCRL(crlBytes []byte) (*pkix.CertificateList, error)

ParseCRL parses a CRL from the given bytes. It's often the case that PEM encoded CRLs will appear where they should be DER encoded, so this function will transparently handle PEM encoding as long as there isn't any leading garbage.

func ParseDERCRL

func NewCertPool() *CertPool

NewCertPool returns a new, empty CertPool.

func SystemCertPool

func SystemCertPool() (*CertPool, error)

SystemCertPool returns a copy of the system cert pool.

On Unix systems other than macOS the environment variables SSL_CERT_FILE and SSL_CERT_DIR can be used to override the system default locations for the SSL certificate file and SSL certificate files directory, respectively. The latter can be a colon-separated list.

Any mutations to the returned pool are not written to disk and do not affect any other pool returned by SystemCertPool.

New changes in the system cert pool might not be reflected in subsequent calls.

A Certificate represents an X.509 certificate.

func ParseCertificate

func ParseCertificate(der []byte) (*Certificate, error)

ParseCertificate parses a single certificate from the given ASN.1 DER data.

func ParseCertificates

func ParseCertificates(der []byte) ([]*Certificate, error)

ParseCertificates parses one or more certificates from the given ASN.1 DER data. The certificates must be concatenated with no intermediate padding.

func (*Certificate) CheckCRLSignature

func (c *Certificate) CheckCRLSignature(crl *pkix.CertificateList) error

CheckCRLSignature checks that the signature in crl is from c.

func (*Certificate) CheckSignature

func (c *Certificate) CheckSignature(algo SignatureAlgorithm, signed, signature []byte) error

CheckSignature verifies that signature is a valid signature over signed from c's public key.

func (*Certificate) CheckSignatureFrom

func (c *Certificate) CheckSignatureFrom(parent *Certificate) error

CheckSignatureFrom verifies that the signature on c is a valid signature from parent.

func (*Certificate) CreateCRL

func (c *Certificate) CreateCRL(rand io.Reader, priv interface{}, revokedCerts []pkix.RevokedCertificate, now, expiry time.Time) (crlBytes []byte, err error)

CreateCRL returns a DER encoded CRL, signed by this Certificate, that contains the given list of revoked certificates.

Note: this method does not generate an RFC 5280 conformant X.509 v2 CRL. To generate a standards compliant CRL, use CreateRevocationList instead.

func (*Certificate) Equal

func (c *Certificate) Equal(other *Certificate) bool

func (*Certificate) Verify

func (c *Certificate) Verify(opts VerifyOptions) (chains [][]*Certificate, err error)

Verify attempts to verify c by building one or more chains from c to a certificate in opts.Roots, using certificates in opts.Intermediates if needed. If successful, it returns one or more chains where the first element of the chain is c and the last element is from opts.Roots.

If opts.Roots is nil, the platform verifier might be used, and verification details might differ from what is described below. If system roots are unavailable the returned error will be of type SystemRootsError.

Name constraints in the intermediates will be applied to all names claimed in the chain, not just opts.DNSName. Thus it is invalid for a leaf to claim if an intermediate doesn't permit it, even if is not the name being validated. Note that DirectoryName constraints are not supported.

Name constraint validation follows the rules from RFC 5280, with the addition that DNS name constraints may use the leading period format defined for emails and URIs. When a constraint has a leading period it indicates that at least one additional label must be prepended to the constrained name to be considered valid.

Extended Key Usage values are enforced nested down a chain, so an intermediate or root that enumerates EKUs prevents a leaf from asserting an EKU not in that list. (While this is not specified, it is common practice in order to limit the types of certificates a CA can issue.)

WARNING: this function doesn't do any revocation checking.

func (*Certificate) VerifyHostname

func (c *Certificate) VerifyHostname(h string) error

VerifyHostname returns nil if c is a valid certificate for the named host. Otherwise it returns an error describing the mismatch.

IP addresses can be optionally enclosed in square brackets and are checked against the IPAddresses field. Other names are checked case insensitively against the DNSNames field. If the names are valid hostnames, the certificate fields can have a wildcard as the left-most label.

Note that the legacy Common Name field is ignored.
