get the X509 certificate chain sent by the peer
STACK_OF(X509) certificates forming the certificate chain of the peer. If called on the client side, the stack also contains the peer's certificate; if called on the server side, the peer's certificate must be obtained separately using SSL_get_peer_certificate(3). If the peer did not present a certificate, NULL is returned.SSL_get_peer_cert_chain() returns the peer chain as sent by the peer: it only consists of certificates the peer has sent (in the order the peer has sent them) and it is not a verified chain.If the session is resumed, peers do not send certificates, so a NULL pointer is returned. Applications can call SSL_session_reused() to determine whether a session is resumed.The reference count of the STACK_OF(X509) object is not incremented. If the corresponding session is freed, the pointer must not be used any longer.
- No certificate was presented by the peer or no connection was established or the certificate chain is no longer available when a session is reused.
- Pointer to a STACK_OF(X509)
- The return value points to the certificate chain presented by the peer.
