A callback that provides information during the certificate exchange/verification phase of TLS DICOM Security negotiation and optionally controls the verification process.


#include "ltdic.h"

virtual L_INT LDicomNet::OnVerify(ok, pszCertificateString, nError, pszErrorString)


L_INT ok

An integer value that indicates the verification of the certificate was successful. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
1 The verification was successful.
0 The verification was failure.

L_TCHAR *pszCertificateString

A character string that provides detailed information about the certificate.

L_INT nError

An Error Code that indicates success or an error.

L_TCHAR *pszErrorString

A friendly character string that corresponds to the nError parameter.


Value Meaning
0 Stop the verification process.
1 Continue the verification process.


TLS Secure DICOM communications between an SCP and an SCU has a handshake process where the SCP and SCU verify each other’s provided certificates.

The LDicomNet::OnVerify callback is called once for each certificate in a certificate change, and provides information about the verification process.

This is useful for determining why a TLS DICOM Secure communication failed to be established.

The pszCertificateString provides information about a certificate, including:

For example, if an SCU is providing a certificate that is created without SSL Server and SSL Client purposes, the LDicomNet::OnVerify callback will be fired with an nError Error Code of L_X509_V_ERR_INVALID_PURPOSE(26), and show the problem in the Certificate Purposes section of the pszCertificateString.

An example pszCertificateString corresponding to a nError Error Code value of L_X509_V_ERR_INVALID_PURPOSE is shown below:

When overriding the LDicomNet::OnVerify callback, the return value of the override determines the verification behavior.

Return 0 to stop the verification process with a "verification failed" state. If LDicomNet::Initialize is called with an L_SSL_CTX_CREATE structure with L_SSL_VERIFY_PEER(0x01) set for the uVerifyMode, a verification failure alert is sent to the SCU and the TLS/SSL handshake is terminated.

Return 1 to continue the verification process. If LDicomNet::OnVerify always returns 1, the TLS/SSL handshake will not be terminated with respect to verification failures and the connection will be established.

Return ok to get the default verification behavior.
