Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ DynamicTrustAnchorGroup()

ndn::security::v2::DynamicTrustAnchorGroup::DynamicTrustAnchorGroup ( CertContainerInterface certContainer,
const std::string &  id,
const boost::filesystem::path &  path,
time::nanoseconds  refreshPeriod,
bool  isDir = false 

Create a dynamic trust anchor group.

This contructor would load all the certificates from path and will be refreshing certificates every refreshPeriod time period.

Note that refresh is not scheduled, but is performed upon "find" operations.

When isDir is false and path doesn't point to a valid certificate (file doesn't exist or content is not a valid certificate), the dynamic anchor group will be empty until file gets created. If file disappears or gets corrupted, the anchor group becomes empty.

When idDir is true and path does't point to a valid folder, folder is empty, or doesn't contain valid certificates, the group will be empty until certificate files are placed in the folder. If folder is removed, becomes empty, or no longer contains valid certificates, the anchor group becomes empty.

Upon refresh, the existing certificates are not changed.

certContainerA certificate container into which trust anchors from the group will be added
idGroup id
pathFile path for trust anchor(s), could be directory or file. If it is a directory, all the certificates in the directory will be loaded.
refreshPeriodRefresh time for the anchors under path, must be positive.
isDirTells whether the path is a directory or a single file.
std::invalid_argumentrefreshPeriod is negative
