NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crl_get_issuer_dn - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crl_get_issuer_dn(gnutls_x509_crl_t crl, char *
       buf, size_t * sizeof_buf);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crl_t crl
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crl_t type

       char * buf  a pointer to a structure to hold the peer's name (may
                   be null)

       size_t * sizeof_buf
                   initially holds the size of  buf

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will copy the name of the CRL issuer in the
       provided buffer. The name will be in the form
       "C=xxxx,O=yyyy,CN=zzzz" as described in RFC4514. The output
       string will be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded, depending on the
       certificate data.

       If buf is NULL then only the size will be filled.

       This function does not output a fully RFC4514 compliant string,
       if that is required see gnutls_x509_crl_get_issuer_dn3().

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the provided buffer is not long
       enough, and in that case the sizeof_buf will be updated with the
       required size, and 0 on success.
