gnutls_x509_crq_set_dn_by_oid — API function


#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);


gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type
const char * oid
holds an Object Identifier in a (0)-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


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 function with raw_flag set.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
