#include <openssl/x509.h> int X509_verify_cert(X509_STORE_CTX *ctx);
If the function fails additional error information can be obtained by examining ctx using, for example X509_STORE_CTX_get_error().
A negative return value from X509_verify_cert() can occur if it is invoked incorrectly, such as with no certificate set in ctx, or when it is called twice in succession without reinitialising ctx for the second call. A negative return value can also happen due to internal resource problems or if a retry operation is requested during internal lookups (which never happens with standard lookup methods). Applications must check for <= 0 return value on error.
