gnutls_x509_dn_export — API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_dn_export(gnutls_x509_dn_t dn, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, void * output_data, size_t * output_data_size);


gnutls_x509_dn_t dn
Holds the uint8_t DN object
gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
the format of output params. One of PEM or DER.
void * output_data
will contain a DN PEM or DER encoded
size_t * output_data_size
holds the size of output_data (and will be replaced by the actual size of parameters)


This function will export the DN to DER or PEM format.

If the buffer provided is not long enough to hold the output, then * output_data_size is updated and GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER will be returned.

If the structure is PEM encoded, it will have a header of "BEGIN NAME".


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