+.Vb 1
+\& #include <openssl/pkcs7.h>
+\& int PKCS7_verify(PKCS7 *p7, STACK_OF(X509) *certs, X509_STORE *store,
+\& BIO *indata, BIO *out, int flags);
+\& STACK_OF(X509) *PKCS7_get0_signers(PKCS7 *p7, STACK_OF(X509) *certs, int flags);
+\&\fBPKCS7_verify()\fR verifies a PKCS#7 signedData structure. \fBp7\fR is the \s-1PKCS7\s0
+structure to verify. \fBcerts\fR is a set of certificates in which to search for
+the signer's certificate. \fBstore\fR is a trusted certificate store (used for
+chain verification). \fBindata\fR is the signed data if the content is not
+present in \fBp7\fR (that is it is detached). The content is written to \fBout\fR
+if it is not \s-1NULL.\s0
+\&\fBflags\fR is an optional set of flags, which can be used to modify the verify
+\&\fBPKCS7_get0_signers()\fR retrieves the signer's certificates from \fBp7\fR, it does
+\&\fBnot\fR check their validity or whether any signatures are valid. The \fBcerts\fR
+and \fBflags\fR parameters have the same meanings as in \fBPKCS7_verify()\fR.
+Normally the verify process proceeds as follows.
+Initially some sanity checks are performed on \fBp7\fR. The type of \fBp7\fR must
+be signedData. There must be at least one signature on the data and if
+the content is detached \fBindata\fR cannot be \fB\s-1NULL\s0\fR. If the content is
+not detached and \fBindata\fR is not \fB\s-1NULL\s0\fR, then the structure has both
+embedded and external content. To treat this as an error, use the flag
+The default behavior allows this, for compatibility with older
+versions of OpenSSL.
+An attempt is made to locate all the signer's certificates, first looking in
+the \fBcerts\fR parameter (if it is not \fB\s-1NULL\s0\fR) and then looking in any certificates
+contained in the \fBp7\fR structure itself. If any signer's certificates cannot be
+located the operation fails.
+Each signer's certificate is chain verified using the \fBsmimesign\fR purpose and
+the supplied trusted certificate store. Any internal certificates in the message
+are used as untrusted CAs. If any chain verify fails an error code is returned.
+Finally the signed content is read (and written to \fBout\fR is it is not \s-1NULL\s0) and
+the signature's checked.
+If all signature's verify correctly then the function is successful.
+Any of the following flags (ored together) can be passed in the \fBflags\fR parameter
+to change the default verify behaviour. Only the flag \fB\s-1PKCS7_NOINTERN\s0\fR is
+meaningful to \fBPKCS7_get0_signers()\fR.
+If \fB\s-1PKCS7_NOINTERN\s0\fR is set the certificates in the message itself are not
+searched when locating the signer's certificate. This means that all the signers
+certificates must be in the \fBcerts\fR parameter.
+If the \fB\s-1PKCS7_TEXT\s0\fR flag is set \s-1MIME\s0 headers for type \fBtext/plain\fR are deleted
+from the content. If the content is not of type \fBtext/plain\fR then an error is
+If \fB\s-1PKCS7_NOVERIFY\s0\fR is set the signer's certificates are not chain verified.
+If \fB\s-1PKCS7_NOCHAIN\s0\fR is set then the certificates contained in the message are
+not used as untrusted CAs. This means that the whole verify chain (apart from
+the signer's certificate) must be contained in the trusted store.
+If \fB\s-1PKCS7_NOSIGS\s0\fR is set then the signatures on the data are not checked.
+.IX Header "NOTES"
+One application of \fB\s-1PKCS7_NOINTERN\s0\fR is to only accept messages signed by
+a small number of certificates. The acceptable certificates would be passed
+in the \fBcerts\fR parameter. In this case if the signer is not one of the
+certificates supplied in \fBcerts\fR then the verify will fail because the
+signer cannot be found.
+Care should be taken when modifying the default verify behaviour, for example
+setting \fBPKCS7_NOVERIFY|PKCS7_NOSIGS\fR will totally disable all verification
+and any signed message will be considered valid. This combination is however
+useful if one merely wishes to write the content to \fBout\fR and its validity
+is not considered important.
+Chain verification should arguably be performed using the signing time rather
+than the current time. However since the signing time is supplied by the
+signer it cannot be trusted without additional evidence (such as a trusted
+\&\fBPKCS7_verify()\fR returns one for a successful verification and zero
+if an error occurs.
+\&\fBPKCS7_get0_signers()\fR returns all signers or \fB\s-1NULL\s0\fR if an error occurred.
+The error can be obtained from \fBERR_get_error\fR\|(3)
+.IX Header "BUGS"
+The trusted certificate store is not searched for the signers certificate,
+this is primarily due to the inadequacies of the current \fBX509_STORE\fR
+The lack of single pass processing and need to hold all data in memory as
+mentioned in \fBPKCS7_sign()\fR also applies to \fBPKCS7_verify()\fR.
