NAME
       SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx - get ex_data index to access(2,5) SSL
       structure from X509_STORE_CTX

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        int SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(void);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() returns the index number under
       which the pointer to the SSL object is stored into the X509_STORE_CTX
       object.

NOTES
       Whenever a X509_STORE_CTX object is created for the verification of the
       peers certificate during a handshake, a pointer to the SSL object is
       stored into the X509_STORE_CTX object to identify the connection
       affected.  To retrieve this pointer the X509_STORE_CTX_get_ex_data()
       function can be used with the correct index. This index is globally the
       same for all X509_STORE_CTX objects and can be retrieved using
       SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(). The index value is set(7,n,1 builtins) when
       SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() is first called either by the
       application program directly or indirectly during other SSL setup(2,8) func-
       tions or during the handshake.

       The value depends on other index values defined for X509_STORE_CTX
       objects before the SSL index is created.

RETURN VALUES
       >=0 The index value to access(2,5) the pointer.

       <0  An error(8,n) occurred, check the error(8,n) stack for a detailed error(8,n) mes-
           sage.

EXAMPLES
       The index returned from SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() allows to
       access(2,5) the SSL object for the connection to be accessed during the ver-
       ify_callback() when checking the peers certificate. Please check the
       example in(1,8) SSL_CTX_set_verify(3),
