        OCSP_CERTID *OCSP_cert_to_id(const EVP_MD *dgst,
                                     X509 *subject, X509 *issuer);

        OCSP_CERTID *OCSP_cert_id_new(const EVP_MD *dgst,
                                      X509_NAME *issuerName,
                                      ASN1_BIT_STRING *issuerKey,
                                      ASN1_INTEGER *serialNumber);

        void OCSP_CERTID_free(OCSP_CERTID *id);

        int OCSP_id_issuer_cmp(const OCSP_CERTID *a, const OCSP_CERTID *b);
        int OCSP_id_cmp(const OCSP_CERTID *a, const OCSP_CERTID *b);

        int OCSP_id_get0_info(ASN1_OCTET_STRING **piNameHash, ASN1_OBJECT **pmd,
                              ASN1_OCTET_STRING **pikeyHash,
                              ASN1_INTEGER **pserial, OCSP_CERTID *cid);

       OCSP_cert_to_id() creates and returns a new OCSP_CERTID structure using
       message digest dgst for certificate subject with issuer issuer. If dgst
       is NULL then SHA1 is used.

       OCSP_cert_id_new() creates and returns a new OCSP_CERTID using dgst and
       issuer name issuerName, issuer key hash issuerKey and serial number

       OCSP_CERTID_free() frees up id.

       OCSP_id_cmp() compares OCSP_CERTID a and b.

       OCSP_id_issuer_cmp() compares only the issuer name of OCSP_CERTID a and

       OCSP_id_get0_info() returns the issuer name hash, hash OID, issuer key
       hash and serial number contained in cid. If any of the values are not
       required the corresponding parameter can be set to NULL.

       OCSP_cert_to_id() and OCSP_cert_id_new() return either a pointer to a
       valid OCSP_CERTID structure or NULL if an error occurred.

       OCSP_id_cmp() and OCSP_id_issuer_cmp() returns zero for a match and
       nonzero otherwise.

       OCSP_CERTID_free() does not return a value.

       OCSP_id_get0_info() returns 1 for success and 0 for failure.

       OCSP clients will typically only use OCSP_cert_to_id() or
       OCSP_cert_id_new(): the other functions are used by responder

       The values returned by OCSP_id_get0_info() are internal pointers and
       MUST NOT be freed up by an application: they will be freed when the
       corresponding OCSP_CERTID structure is freed.
