Method

GioTlsInteractioninvoke_request_certificate

Declaration

GTlsInteractionResult
g_tls_interaction_invoke_request_certificate (
  GTlsInteraction* interaction,
  GTlsConnection* connection,
  GTlsCertificateRequestFlags flags,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error
)

Description

Invoke the interaction to ask the user to choose a certificate to use with the connection. It invokes this interaction in the main loop, specifically the GMainContext returned by g_main_context_get_thread_default() when the interaction is created. This is called by called by GTlsConnection when the peer requests a certificate during the handshake.

Derived subclasses usually implement a certificate selector, although they may also choose to provide a certificate from elsewhere. Alternatively the user may abort this certificate request, which may or may not abort the TLS connection.

The implementation can either be a synchronous (eg: modal dialog) or an asynchronous one (eg: modeless dialog). This function will take care of calling which ever one correctly.

If the interaction is cancelled by the cancellation object, or by the user then G_TLS_INTERACTION_FAILED will be returned with an error that contains a G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED error code. Certain implementations may not support immediate cancellation.
