NAME gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, char * buf, size_t * sizeof_buf);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_x509_crt_t cert should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure

char * buf a pointer to a structure to hold the name (may be null)

size_t * sizeof_buf initially holds the size of buf

DESCRIPTION This function will copy the name of the Certificate issuer in the pro- vided buffer. The name will be in the form "C=xxxx,O=yyyy,CN=zzzz" as described in RFC2253. The output string will be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded, depending on the certificate data.

If buf is null then only the size will be filled.

RETURNS GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the provided buffer is not long enough, and in that case the *sizeof_buf will be updated with the required size. On success 0 is returned.
