gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn — API function

Synopsis

#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, const char * dn, const char ** err);

Arguments

gnutls_x509_crt_t crt

a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

const char * dn

a comma separated DN string (RFC4514)

const char ** err

indicates the error position (if any)

Description

This function will set the DN on the provided certificate. The input string should be plain ASCII or UTF-8 encoded. On DN parsing error GNUTLS_E_PARSING_ERROR is returned.

Note that DNs are not expected to hold DNS information, and thus no automatic IDNA convertions are attempted when using this function. If that is required (e.g., store a domain in CN), process the corresponding input with gnutls_idna_map().

Returns

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