QSsl Namespace Reference
[QtNetwork module]

The QSsl namespace declares enums common to all SSL classes in QtNetwork. More...

 #include <QSsl>

This namespace was introduced in Qt 4.3.


Types

enum AlternateNameEntryType { EmailEntry, DnsEntry }
enum EncodingFormat { Pem, Der }
enum KeyAlgorithm { Rsa, Dsa }
enum KeyType { PrivateKey, PublicKey }
enum SslProtocol { SslV3, SslV2, TlsV1, UnknownProtocol, AnyProtocol }

Detailed Description

The QSsl namespace declares enums common to all SSL classes in QtNetwork.


Type Documentation

enum QSsl::AlternateNameEntryType

Describes the key types for alternate name entries in QSslCertificate.

ConstantValueDescription
QSsl::EmailEntry0An email entry; the entry contains an email address that the certificate is valid for.
QSsl::DnsEntry1A DNS host name entry; the entry contains a host name entry that the certificate is valid for. The entry may contain wildcards.

See also QSslCertificate::alternateSubjectNames().

enum QSsl::EncodingFormat

Describes supported encoding formats for certificates and keys.

ConstantValueDescription
QSsl::Pem0The PEM format.
QSsl::Der1The DER format.

enum QSsl::KeyAlgorithm

Describes the different key algorithms supported by QSslKey.

ConstantValueDescription
QSsl::Rsa0The RSA algorithm.
QSsl::Dsa1The DSA algorithm.

enum QSsl::KeyType

Describes the two types of keys QSslKey supports.

ConstantValueDescription
QSsl::PrivateKey0A private key.
QSsl::PublicKey1A public key.

enum QSsl::SslProtocol

Describes the protocol of the cipher.

ConstantValueDescription
QSsl::SslV30SSLv3 - the default protocol.
QSsl::SslV21SSLv2
QSsl::TlsV12TLSv1
QSsl::UnknownProtocol-1The cipher's protocol cannot be determined.
QSsl::AnyProtocol3The socket understands SSLv2, SSLv3, and TLSv1. This value is used by QSslSocket only.

Note: most servers using SSL understand both versions (2 and 3), but it is recommended to use the latest version only for security reasons. However, SSL and TLS are not compatible with each other: if you get unexpected handshake failures, verify that you chose the correct setting for your protocol.
