.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.IX Header "DESCRIPTION"
\&\fBSCT_validate()\fR will check that an \s-1SCT\s0 is valid and verify its signature.
\&\fBSCT_LIST_validate()\fR performs the same checks on an entire stack of SCTs.
The result of the validation checks can be obtained by passing the \s-1SCT\s0 to
\&\fBSCT_get_validation_status()\fR.
.PP
A \s-1CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX\s0 must be provided that specifies:
.IP "\(bu" 2
The certificate the \s-1SCT\s0 was issued for.
.Sp
Failure to provide the certificate will result in the validation status being
\&\s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_UNVERIFIED.\s0
.IP "\(bu" 2
The issuer of that certificate.
.Sp
This is only required if the \s-1SCT\s0 was issued for a pre-certificate
(see \s-1RFC 6962\s0). If it is required but not provided, the validation status will
be \s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_UNVERIFIED.\s0
.IP "\(bu" 2
A \s-1CTLOG_STORE\s0 that contains the \s-1CT\s0 log that issued this \s-1SCT.\s0
.Sp
If the \s-1SCT\s0 was issued by a log that is not in this \s-1CTLOG_STORE,\s0 the validation
status will be \s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_UNKNOWN_LOG.\s0
.PP
If the \s-1SCT\s0 is of an unsupported version (only v1 is currently supported), the
validation status will be \s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_UNKNOWN_VERSION.\s0
.PP
If the \s-1SCT\s0's signature is incorrect, its timestamp is in the future (relative to
the time in \s-1CT_POLICY_EVAL_CTX\s0), or if it is otherwise invalid, the validation
status will be \s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_INVALID.\s0
.PP
If all checks pass, the validation status will be \s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_VALID.\s0
.SH "NOTES"
.IX Header "NOTES"
A return value of 0 from \fBSCT_LIST_validate()\fR should not be interpreted as a
failure. At a minimum, only one valid \s-1SCT\s0 may provide sufficient confidence
that a certificate has been publicly logged.
.SH "RETURN VALUES"
.IX Header "RETURN VALUES"
\&\fBSCT_validate()\fR returns a negative integer if an internal error occurs, 0 if the
\&\s-1SCT\s0 fails validation, or 1 if the \s-1SCT\s0 passes validation.
.PP
\&\fBSCT_LIST_validate()\fR returns a negative integer if an internal error occurs, 0
if any of SCTs fails validation, or 1 if they all pass validation.
.PP
\&\fBSCT_get_validation_status()\fR returns the validation status of the \s-1SCT.\s0
If \fBSCT_validate()\fR or \fBSCT_LIST_validate()\fR have not been passed that \s-1SCT,\s0 the
returned value will be \s-1SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_NOT_SET.\s0
