Usable X.509 errors: OpenSSL
Our goal is to simplify the ecosystem by consolidating the errors and their documentation (similarly to web documentation) and better explaining what the validation errors mean.
For every error, we aim to provide our redesigned documentation ( ), an example certificate ( ), original documentation provided by the library ( , unused or deprecated errors denoted by ). Furthermore, we provide links to corresponding errors from other libraries ( ). In the future, we plan on adding error frequencies based on IP-wide scans and elaborating on the consequences of individual errors.
