RFC 3779 defines two X.509v3 certificate extensions that allow the delegation of IP addresses and autonomous system (AS) identifiers from the issuer to the subject of the certificate. An ASIdentifiers object contains collections of individual AS numbers and ranges of AS numbers to be delegated.

() allocates and initializes a new, empty ASIdentifiers object that can be populated with X509v3_asid_add_id_or_range(3). See ASRange_new(3) for implementation details.

() frees asid including any data contained in it. If asid is NULL, no action occurs.

() and () decode and encode ASN.1 ASIdentifiers objects as defined in RFC 3779, section For details about the semantics, examples, caveats, and bugs, see ASN1_item_d2i(3). In order for the encoding produced by i2d_ASIdentifiers() to conform to RFC 3779, asid must be in “canonical form”, see X509v3_asid_canonize(3).

ASIdentifiers_new() returns a new ASIdentifiers object or NULL if an error occurs.

d2i_ASIdentifiers() returns an ASIdentifiers object or NULL if a decoding or memory allocation error occurs.

i2d_ASIdentifiers() returns the number of bytes successfully encoded or a value <= 0 if an error occurs.
