        Hi. I'm working on a security related swift application, and I need som info from certificates stored in SecIdentities. Although I can access to SecCertificate to extract some info (serialnumber, common name, subject name) y can't find any example of function (or OSX API documentation) for other data extraction, like validity date (from/until), DER encoded public key, certificate usage policies, etc.

         

        I'm using Xcode 8.2.1 (Swift 3.0.2).

         

        Thank you in advance.

          You can use SecCertificateCopyValues on your SecCertificate to extract all of the values in it as a CFDictionary. You can then use the values in SecCertificateOIDs.h to look up individual attributes if you like.

           

          Here I exported a copy of the WWDR CA certificate to my Desktop, read it in as Data, and simply dump it out with a Swift Playground.

          let fileURL = URL(fileURLWithPath: "/Users/joshwisenbaker/Desktop/Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certification Authority.cer")
          let certificateData = try Data(contentsOf: fileURL)
          let certificate = SecCertificateCreateWithData(nil, certificateData as CFData)
          let values = SecCertificateCopyValues(certificate!, nil, nil) as! [String: Any]
          print(values)

          Values:
