gnutls_x509_crt_set_subject_alternative_name — API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_set_subject_alternative_name(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t type, const char * data_string);


gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t
gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t type
is one of the gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t enumerations
const char * data_string
The data to be set, a (0) terminated string


This function will set the subject alternative name certificate extension. This function assumes that data can be expressed as a null terminated string.

The name of the function is unfortunate since it is inconsistent with gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_name().


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