[openssl-users] Verifying Authenticode timestamp using openssl apis

Hi Matt,Yes I have seen them and am planning on using them. But the timestamp is embedded in the Authenticode signature as a PKCS7 signedData under OID I have reached this oid but need to convert the PKCS7 signedData into a structure after which I will be able to use the ts apis.After some debugging, I found that the version in the PKCS7 structure is 3. So I am now wondering if I need to use d2i_CMS_SignedData instead of d2i_PKCS7.

Am I right in understanding that you are attempting to use the OpenSSL
ASN.1 APIs to parse an RFC3161 response?

Did you realise that OpenSSL has APIs that support RFC3161 directly? See
opensssl/ts.h as well as the "openssl ts" command line app.
