gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn_by_oid - API function
int gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const char * oid, int indx, unsigned int raw_flag, void * buf, size_t *
should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure
const char * oid
holds an Object Identified in null terminated string
int indx In case multiple same OIDs exist in the RDN, this specifies which to send. Use (0) to get the first one.
unsigned int raw_flag
If non-zero returns the raw DER data of the DN part.
void * buf a pointer to a structure to hold the name (may be null)
size_t * buf_size
initially holds the size of buf
This function will extract the part of the name of the Certificate issuer specified by the given OID. The output, if the raw flag is not
used, will be encoded as described in RFC4514. Thus a string that is ASCII or UTF-8 encoded, depending on the certificate data.
Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in gnutls/x509.h If raw flag is (0), this function will only return known OIDs as text.
Other OIDs will be DER encoded, as described in RFC4514 -- in hex format with a '#' prefix. You can check about known OIDs using
If buf is null then only the size will be filled. If the raw_flag is not specified the output is always null terminated, although the
buf_size will not include the null character.
GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the provided buffer is not long enough, and in that case the buf_size will be updated with the required
size. GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE if there are no data in the current index. On success 0 is returned.
