L_DicomCreateNetExt

#include "ltdic.h"

L_LTDIC_API HDICOMNET L_DicomCreateNetExt(pszPath, nMode, pCtxCreate)

Allocates memory for the network structure and sets the site of the temporary files.

This function is an extended version of the L_DicomCreateNet function, to be used when changing security settings.

Parameters

L_TCHAR * pszPath

Character string containing the location of the temporary files. DICOM uses temporary files during the course of creating a file. If this parameter is NULL, the DICOM temporary files are kept in the directory Windows places its own temporary files. If this parameter is not NULL, the temporary files are placed in the specified directory.

L_INT32 nMode

Flag that indicates which security mode to use when initializing the network structure. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
DICOM_SECURE_NONE Do not use any security mode.
DICOM_SECURE_ISCL Use Integrated Secure Communication Layer protocol security.
DICOM_SECURE_TLS Use Transport Layer Secure protocol security.

pL_SSL_CTX_CREATE pCtxCreate

Pointer to the L_SSL_CTX_CREATE structure that is used when modifying the security defaults. This structure is used only if the nMode flag is DICOM_SECURE_TLS. Pass NULL to get the default values.

Returns

A DICOM Network handle.

Comments

This function is an extended version of the L_DicomCreateNet function, to be used when changing security settings.

Use this version if non-default security settings are desired. For more information about the security options, refer to L_SSL_CTX_CREATE.

Note: The following examples are functionally equivalent:

1.

HDICOMNET hNet;   
hNet = L_DicomCreateNext(pszPath, nMode); 

2.

HDICOMNET hNet;   
hNet = L_DicomCreateNetExt (pszPath, nMode, NULL); 

Free allocated memory by calling L_DicomFreeNet.

The LEADTOOLS DICOM DLL should be initialized before calling any DICOM Communication operations function. To initialize the DLL call L_DicomStartUp.

Required DLLs and Libraries

Platforms

Win32, x64, Linux.

Example

This example creates an hNet object with security The hNet object is configured so that if a client connects:

  1. it requires and verifies the client certificate
  2. it will support SSL version 3 or TLS Version 1 for the handshake
  3. it uses trusted certificate authority CA_CERT_NAME to verify the client certificate
  4. it verifies the client certificate chain to a maximum depth of 2

The hNet is assigned the certificate SERVER_CERT_NAME, which contains a password encrypted private key The exPrivateKeyPassword callback function is used to supply the encryption password of the private key
