       The X509_LOOKUP_METHOD type is a structure used for the implementation
       of new X509_LOOKUP types. It provides a set of functions used by
       OpenSSL for the implementation of various X509 and X509_CRL lookup
       capabilities. One instance of an X509_LOOKUP_METHOD can be associated
       to many instantiations of an X509_LOOKUP structure.

       X509_LOOKUP_meth_new() creates a new X509_LOOKUP_METHOD structure. It
       should be given a human-readable string containing a brief description
       of the lookup method.

       X509_LOOKUP_meth_free() destroys a X509_LOOKUP_METHOD structure.

       X509_LOOKUP_get_new_item() and X509_LOOKUP_set_new_item() get and set
       the function that is called when an X509_LOOKUP object is created with
       X509_LOOKUP_new(). If an X509_LOOKUP_METHOD requires any
       per-X509_LOOKUP specific data, the supplied new_item function should
       allocate this data and invoke X509_LOOKUP_set_method_data(3).

       X509_LOOKUP_get_free() and X509_LOOKUP_set_free() get and set the
       function that is used to free any method data that was allocated and
       set from within new_item function.

       X509_LOOKUP_meth_get_init() and X509_LOOKUP_meth_set_init() get and set
       the function that is used to initialize the method data that was set
       with X509_LOOKUP_set_method_data(3) as part of the new_item routine.

       X509_LOOKUP_meth_get_shutdown() and X509_LOOKUP_meth_set_shutdown() get
       and set the function that is used to shut down the method data whose
       state was previously initialized in the init function.

       X509_LOOKUP_meth_get_ctrl() and X509_LOOKUP_meth_set_ctrl() get and set
       a function to be used to handle arbitrary control commands issued by
       X509_LOOKUP_ctrl(). The control function is given the X509_LOOKUP ctx,
       along with the arguments passed by X509_LOOKUP_ctrl. cmd is an
       arbitrary integer that defines some operation. argc is a pointer to an
       array of characters. argl is an integer. ret, if set, points to a
       location where any return data should be written to. How argc and argl
       are used depends entirely on the control function.

       X509_LOOKUP_set_get_by_fingerprint(), X509_LOOKUP_set_get_by_alias()
       set the functions used to retrieve an X509 or X509_CRL object by the
       object's subject, issuer, fingerprint, and alias respectively. These
       functions are given the X509_LOOKUP context, the type of the
       X509_OBJECT being requested, parameters related to the lookup, and an
       X509_OBJECT that will receive the requested object.

       Implementations must add objects they find to the X509_STORE object
       using X509_STORE_add_cert() or X509_STORE_add_crl().  This increments
       its reference count.  However, the X509_STORE_CTX_get_by_subject()
       function also increases the reference count which leads to one too many
       references being held.  Therefore, applications should additionally
       call X509_free() or X509_CRL_free() to decrement the reference count

       Implementations should also use either X509_OBJECT_set1_X509() or
       X509_OBJECT_set1_X509_CRL() to set the result.  Note that this also
       increments the result's reference count.

       Any method data that was created as a result of the new_item function
       set by X509_LOOKUP_meth_set_new_item() can be accessed with
       X509_LOOKUP_get_method_data(3). The X509_STORE object that owns the
       X509_LOOKUP may be accessed with X509_LOOKUP_get_store(3). Successful
       lookups should return 1, and unsuccessful lookups should return 0.

       X509_LOOKUP_get_get_by_fingerprint(), X509_LOOKUP_get_get_by_alias()
       retrieve the function set by the corresponding setter.

       The X509_LOOKUP_meth_set functions return 1 on success or 0 on error.

       The X509_LOOKUP_meth_get functions return the corresponding function

       X509_STORE_new(3), SSL_CTX_set_cert_store(3)

       The functions described here were added in OpenSSL 1.1.0i.
