SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crq_get_subject_alt_name(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq,
       unsigned int seq, void * ret, size_t * ret_size, unsigned int *
       ret_type, unsigned int * critical);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type

       unsigned int seq
                   specifies the sequence number of the alt name, 0 for the
                   first one, 1 for the second etc.

       void * ret  is the place where the alternative name will be copied to

       size_t * ret_size
                   holds the size of ret.

       unsigned int * ret_type
                   holds the gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t name type

       unsigned int * critical

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will return the alternative names, contained in the
       given certificate.  It is the same as
       gnutls_x509_crq_get_subject_alt_name() except for the fact that it
       will return the type of the alternative name in  ret_type even if the
       function fails for some reason (i.e.  the buffer provided is not

RETURNS         top

       the alternative subject name type on success, one of the enumerated
       gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t.  It will return
       GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if  ret_size is not large enough to hold
       the value.  In that case  ret_size will be updated with the required
       size.  If the certificate request does not have an Alternative name
       with the specified sequence number then
