I am trying to find an open-source-API available to search for a specific certificate issued by a given issuer within my certificate storage. Do you know something that could be of help for me?

Thanks in advance!

Chosen solution

The db should be cert8.db and this can be accessed with a db reading software. To be sure: Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data

These are the tools https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/d.../Tools#dbck

I do not know if there is an api. Try MDN.
