These are both great points and I’ll make both changes.

 

Thanks!

[Jiewen] I checked the programming context.
If we are going to skip the check, I feel the GetScratchBuffer() and CopyMem () may be avoided.
Also, I do not find any those data are used at Exit.

How about we move the check just after getting PayloadSize?
  //
  // Find out the new data payload which follows Pkcs7 SignedData directly.
  //
  PayloadPtr = SigData + SigDataSize;
  PayloadSize = DataSize - OFFSET_OF_AUTHINFO2_CERT_DATA - (UINTN) SigDataSize;
I hope it can make logic clearer.


One more thing is about below action at Exit.
Pkcs7FreeSigners (TopLevelCert);
Pkcs7FreeSigners (SignerCerts);

With new short path, we can come here with NULL point for Pkcs7FreeSigners().
I don't know the result if we pass a NULL pointer according to Pkcs7FreeSigners() API definition.
/**
  Wrap function to use free() to free allocated memory for certificates.
  If this interface is not supported, then ASSERT().
  @param[in]  Certs        Pointer to the certificates to be freed.
**/
VOID
EFIAPI
Pkcs7FreeSigners (
  IN  UINT8        *Certs
  );

I notice the current openssl version BaseCryptoLib implementation will check NULL and return.
We are safe in the default one. But I am not sure about other implementation.

I recommend we either document NULL pointer behavior in Pkcs7FreeSigners(), or add NULL pointer check at Exit to avoid calling Pkcs7FreeSigners().
