These functions are used by PKCS12.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_OBJ() finds the location of the first matching object obj in the key attribute list. The search starts at the position after lastpos. If the returned value is positive then it can be used on the next call to EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_OBJ() as the value of lastpos in order to iterate through the remaining attributes. lastpos can be set to any negative value on the first call, in order to start searching from the start of the attribute list.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_NID() is similar to EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_OBJ() except that it passes the numerical identifier (NID) nid associated with the object. See <openssl/obj_mac.h> for a list of NID_*.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr() returns the X509_ATTRIBUTE object at index loc in the key attribute list. loc should be in the range from 0 to EVP_PKEY_get_attr_count() - 1.

EVP_PKEY_delete_attr() removes the X509_ATTRIBUTE object at index loc in the key attribute list.

EVP_PKEY_add1_attr() pushes a copy of the passed in X509_ATTRIBUTE object to the key attribute list. A new key attribute list is created if required. An error occurs if either attr is NULL, or the attribute already exists.

EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_OBJ() creates a new X509_ATTRIBUTE using X509_ATTRIBUTE_set1_object() and X509_ATTRIBUTE_set1_data() to assign a new obj with type type and data bytes of length len and then pushes it to the key object's attribute list. If obj already exists in the attribute list then an error occurs.

EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_NID() is similar to EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_OBJ() except that it passes the numerical identifier (NID) nid associated with the object. See <openssl/obj_mac.h> for a list of NID_*.

EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_txt() is similar to EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_OBJ() except that it passes a name attrname associated with the object. See <openssl/obj_mac.h> for a list of SN_* names.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr_count() returns the number of attributes in the key object attribute list or -1 if the attribute list is NULL.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_OBJ() returns -1 if either the list is empty OR the object is not found, otherwise it returns the location of the object in the list.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_NID() is similar to EVP_PKEY_get_attr_by_OBJ(), except that it returns -2 if the nid is not known by OpenSSL.

EVP_PKEY_get_attr() returns either a X509_ATTRIBUTE or NULL if there is a error.

EVP_PKEY_delete_attr() returns either the removed X509_ATTRIBUTE or NULL if there is a error.

EVP_PKEY_add1_attr(), EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_OBJ(), EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_NID() and EVP_PKEY_add1_attr_by_txt() return 1 on success or 0 otherwise.

A EVP_PKEY object's attribute list is initially NULL. All the above functions listed will return an error unless EVP_PKEY_add1_attr() is called. All functions listed assume that the key is not NULL.
