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().

See gnutls_x509_crt_set_subject_alt_name() for more information.


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