gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_responder - Man Page

API function


#include <gnutls/ocsp.h>

int gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_responder(gnutls_ocsp_resp_const_t resp, gnutls_datum_t * dn);


gnutls_ocsp_resp_const_t resp

should contain a gnutls_ocsp_resp_t type

gnutls_datum_t * dn

newly allocated buffer with name


This function will extract the name of the Basic OCSP Response in the provided 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 the responder ID is not a name but a hash, this function will return zero and the  dn elements will be set to NULL.

The caller needs to deallocate memory by calling gnutls_free() on
dn ->data.

This function does not output a fully RFC4514 compliant string, if that is required see gnutls_ocsp_resp_get_responder2().


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error code is returned. When no data exist it will return success and set  dn elements to zero.
