       A CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX is used by functions that evaluate whether Signed
       Certificate Timestamps (SCTs) fulfil a Certificate Transparency (CT)
       policy.  This policy may be, for example, that at least one valid SCT
       is available. To determine this, an SCT's timestamp and signature must
       be verified.  This requires:

       ⊕ the public key of the log that issued the SCT

       ⊕ the certificate that the SCT was issued for

       ⊕ the issuer certificate (if the SCT was issued for a pre-certificate)

       ⊕ the current time

       The above requirements are met using the setters described below.

       CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_new() creates an empty policy evaluation context.
       This should then be populated using:

       ⊕ CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_set1_cert() to provide the certificate the SCTs
         were issued for

         Increments the reference count of the certificate.

       ⊕ CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_set1_issuer() to provide the issuer certificate

         Increments the reference count of the certificate.

       ⊕ CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_set_shared_CTLOG_STORE() to provide a list of logs
         that are trusted as sources of SCTs

         Holds a pointer to the CTLOG_STORE, so the CTLOG_STORE must outlive
         the CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX.

       ⊕ CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_set_time() to set the time SCTs should be compared
         with to determine if they are valid

         The SCT timestamp will be compared to this time to check whether the
         SCT was issued in the future. RFC6962 states that "TLS clients MUST
         reject SCTs whose timestamp is in the future". By default, this will
         be set to 5 minutes in the future (e.g. (time() + 300) * 1000), to
         allow for clock drift.

         The time should be in milliseconds since the Unix epoch.

       Each setter has a matching getter for accessing the current value.

       When no longer required, the CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX should be passed to
       CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_free() to delete it.

       The issuer certificate only needs to be provided if at least one of the
       SCTs was issued for a pre-certificate. This will be the case for SCTs
       embedded in a certificate (i.e. those in an X.509 extension), but may
       not be the case for SCTs found in the TLS SCT extension or OCSP

       CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX_new() will return NULL if malloc fails.
