OSSL_STORE_expect(3)                OpenSSL               OSSL_STORE_expect(3)

       OSSL_STORE_expect, OSSL_STORE_supports_search, OSSL_STORE_find -
       Specify what object type is expected

       libcrypto, -lcrypto

        #include <openssl/store.h>

        int OSSL_STORE_expect(OSSL_STORE_CTX *ctx, int expected_type);

        int OSSL_STORE_supports_search(OSSL_STORE_CTX *ctx, int criterion_type);

        int OSSL_STORE_find(OSSL_STORE_CTX *ctx, OSSL_STORE_SEARCH *search);

       OSSL_STORE_expect() helps applications filter what OSSL_STORE_load()
       returns by specifying a OSSL_STORE_INFO type.  For example, if
       "file:/foo/bar/store.pem" contains several different objects and only
       the certificates are interesting, the application can simply say that
       it expects the type OSSL_STORE_INFO_CERT.  All known object types (see
       "SUPPORTED OBJECTS" in OSSL_STORE_INFO(3)) except for
       OSSL_STORE_INFO_NAME are supported.

       OSSL_STORE_find() helps applications specify a criterion for a more
       fine grained search of objects.

       OSSL_STORE_supports_search() checks if the loader of the given
       OSSL_STORE context supports the given search type.  See "SUPPORTED
       CRITERION TYPES" in OSSL_STORE_SEARCH for information on the supported
       search criterion types.

       OSSL_STORE_expect() and OSSL_STORE_find must be called before the first
       OSSL_STORE_load() of a given session, or they will fail.

       If a more elaborate filter is required by the application, a better
       choice would be to use a post-processing function.  See
       OSSL_STORE_open(3) for more information.

       However, some loaders may take advantage of the knowledge of an
       expected type to make object retrieval more efficient, so if a single
       type is expected, this method is usually preferable.

       OSSL_STORE_expect() returns 1 on success, or 0 on failure.

       OSSL_STORE_supports_search() returns 1 if the criterion is supported,
       or 0 otherwise.

       OSSL_STORE_find() returns 1 on success, or 0 on failure.

       ossl_store(7), OSSL_STORE_INFO(3), OSSL_STORE_SEARCH(3),

       OSSL_STORE_expect(), OSSL_STORE_supports_search() and OSSL_STORE_find()
       were added in OpenSSL 1.1.1.
