+=head1 NAME
+X509_get_serialNumber, X509_set_serialNumber - get or set certificate serial
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+ #include <openssl/x509.h>
+ ASN1_INTEGER *X509_get_serialNumber(X509 *x);
+ int X509_set_serialNumber(X509 *x, ASN1_INTEGER *serial);
+X509_get_serialNumber() returns the serial number of certificate B<x> as an
+B<ASN1_INTEGER> structure which can be examined or initialised. The value
+returned is an internal pointer which B<MUST NOT> be freed up after the call.
+X509_set_serialNumber() sets the serial number of certificate B<x> to
+B<serial>. A copy of the serial number is used internally so B<serial> should
+be freed up after use.
+X509_get_serialNumber() returns an B<ASN1_INTEGER> structure.
+X509_set_serialNumber() returns 1 for success and 0 for failure.
+=head1 SEE ALSO
+=head1 HISTORY
+X509_get_serialNumber() and X509_set_serialNumber() are available in
+all versions of OpenSSL.
