gnutls_x509_crq_set_dn_by_oid(3) gnutls gnutls_x509_crq_set_dn_by_oid(3)

NAME gnutls_x509_crq_set_dn_by_oid - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crq_set_dn_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq, const char * oid, unsigned int raw_flag, const void * data, unsigned int sizeof_data);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_x509_crq_t crq should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t structure

const char * oid holds an Object Identifier in a zero-terminated string

unsigned int raw_flag must be 0, or 1 if the data are DER encoded

const void * data a pointer to the input data

unsigned int sizeof_data holds the size of data

DESCRIPTION This function will set the part of the name of the Certificate request subject, specified by the given OID. The input string should be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded.

Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in gnutls/x509.h With this function you can only set the known OIDs. You can test for known OIDs using gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(). For OIDs that are not known (by gnutls) you should properly DER encode your data, and call this func- tion with raw_flag set.

RETURNS On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
