ASN1_item_d2i_ex() decodes the contents of the data stored in *in of length len which must be a DER-encoded ASN.1 structure, using the ASN.1 template it. It places the result in *pval unless pval is NULL. If *pval is non-NULL on entry then the ASN1_VALUE present there will be reused. Otherwise a new ASN1_VALUE will be allocated. If any algorithm fetches are required during the process then they will use the OSSL_LIB_CTXprovided in the libctx parameter and the property query string in propq. See "ALGORITHM FETCHING" in crypto(7) for more information about algorithm fetching. On exit *in will be updated to point to the next byte in the buffer after the decoded structure.

ASN1_item_d2i() is the same as ASN1_item_d2i_ex() except that the default OSSL_LIB_CTX is used (i.e. NULL) and with a NULL property query string.

ASN1_item_d2i_bio_ex() decodes the contents of its input BIO in, which must be a DER-encoded ASN.1 structure, using the ASN.1 template it and places the result in *pval unless pval is NULL. If in is NULL it returns NULL, else a pointer to the parsed structure. If any algorithm fetches are required during the process then they will use the OSSL_LIB_CTX provided in the libctx parameter and the property query string in propq. See "ALGORITHM FETCHING" in crypto(7) for more information about algorithm fetching.

ASN1_item_d2i_bio() is the same as ASN1_item_d2i_bio_ex() except that the default OSSL_LIB_CTX is used (i.e. NULL) and with a NULL property query string.

ASN1_item_d2i_fp_ex() is the same as ASN1_item_d2i_bio_ex() except that a FILE pointer is provided instead of a BIO.

ASN1_item_d2i_fp() is the same as ASN1_item_d2i_fp_ex() except that the default OSSL_LIB_CTX is used (i.e. NULL) and with a NULL property query string.

ASN1_item_i2d_mem_bio() encodes the given ASN.1 value val using the ASN.1 template it and returns the result in a memory BIO.

ASN1_item_pack() encodes the given ASN.1 value in obj using the ASN.1 template it and returns an ASN1_STRING object. If the passed in *oct is not NULL then this is used to store the returned result, otherwise a new ASN1_STRING object is created. If oct is not NULL and *oct is NULL then the returned return is also set into *oct. If there is an error the optional passed in ASN1_STRING will not be freed, but the previous value may be cleared when ASN1_STRING_set0(*oct, NULL, 0) is called internally.

ASN1_item_unpack() uses ASN1_item_d2i() to decode the DER-encoded ASN1_STRING oct using the ASN.1 template it.

ASN1_item_unpack_ex() is similar to ASN1_item_unpack(), but uses ASN1_item_d2i_ex() so that the libctx and propq can be used when doing algorithm fetching.

ASN1_item_d2i_bio(), ASN1_item_unpack_ex() and ASN1_item_unpack() return a pointer to an ASN1_VALUE or NULL on error.

ASN1_item_i2d_mem_bio() returns a pointer to a memory BIO or NULL on error.

ASN1_item_pack() returns a pointer to an ASN1_STRING or NULL on error.
