       Signed Certificate Timestamps (SCTs) are	defined	by RFC 6962, Section
       3.2.  They constitute a promise by a Certificate	Transparency (CT) log
       to publicly record a certificate. By cryptographically verifying	that a
       log did indeed issue an SCT, some confidence can	be gained that the
       certificate is publicly known.

       An internal representation of an	SCT can	be created in one of two ways.
       The first option	is to create a blank SCT, using	SCT_new(), and then
       populate	it using:

       o SCT_set_version() to set the SCT version.

	 Only SCT_VERSION_V1 is	currently supported.

       o SCT_set_log_entry_type() to set the type of certificate the SCT was
	 issued	for:

	 CT_LOG_ENTRY_TYPE_X509	for a normal certificate.
	 CT_LOG_ENTRY_TYPE_PRECERT for a pre-certificate.

       o SCT_set0_log_id() or SCT_set1_log_id()	to set the LogID of the	CT log
	 that the SCT came from.

	 The former takes ownership, whereas the latter	makes a	copy.  See RFC
	 6962, Section 3.2 for the definition of LogID.

       o SCT_set_timestamp() to	set the	time the SCT was issued	(epoch time in

       o SCT_set_signature_nid() to set	the NID	of the signature.

       o SCT_set0_signature() or SCT_set1_signature() to set the raw signature

	 The former takes ownership, whereas the latter	makes a	copy.

       o SCT_set0_extensions() or SCT_set1_extensions to provide SCT

	 The former takes ownership, whereas the latter	makes a	copy.

       Alternatively, the SCT can be pre-populated from	the following data
       using SCT_new_from_base64():

       o The SCT version (only SCT_VERSION_V1 is currently supported).

       o The LogID (see	RFC 6962, Section 3.2),	base64 encoded.

       o The type of certificate the SCT was issued for:
	 CT_LOG_ENTRY_TYPE_X509	for a normal certificate.
	 CT_LOG_ENTRY_TYPE_PRECERT for a pre-certificate.

       o The time that the SCT was issued (epoch time in milliseconds).

       o The SCT extensions, base64 encoded.

       o The SCT signature, base64 encoded.

       SCT_set_source()	can be used to record where the	SCT was	found (TLS
       extension, X.509	certificate extension or OCSP response). This is not
       required	for verifying the SCT.

       Some of the setters return int, instead of void.	These will all return
       1 on success, 0 on failure. They	will not make changes on failure.

       All of the setters will reset the validation status of the SCT to
       SCT_VALIDATION_STATUS_NOT_SET (see SCT_validate(3)).

       SCT_set_source()	will call SCT_set_log_entry_type() if the type of
       certificate the SCT was issued for can be inferred from where the SCT
       was found.  For example,	an SCT found in	an X.509 extension must	have
       been issued for a pre- certificate.

       SCT_set_source()	will not refuse	unknown	values.

       SCT_set_version() returns 1 if the specified version is supported, 0

       SCT_set_log_entry_type()	returns	1 if the specified log entry type is
       supported, 0 otherwise.

       SCT_set0_log_id() and SCT_set1_log_id return 1 if the specified LogID
       is a valid SHA-256 hash,	0 otherwise. Additionally, SCT_set1_log_id
       returns 0 if malloc fails.

       SCT_set_signature_nid returns 1 if the specified	NID is supported, 0

       SCT_set1_extensions and SCT_set1_signature return 1 if the supplied
       buffer is copied	successfully, 0	otherwise (i.e.	if malloc fails).

       SCT_set_source returns 1	on success, 0 otherwise.
