NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq, const
       char * oid, unsigned indx, unsigned int raw_flag, void * buf,
       size_t * buf_size);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type

       const char * oid
                   holds an Object Identifier in a null terminated

       unsigned indx
                   In case multiple same OIDs exist in the RDN, this
                   specifies which to get. Use (0) to get the first one.

       unsigned int raw_flag
                   If non-zero returns the raw DER data of the DN part.

       void * buf  a pointer to a structure to hold the name (may be

       size_t * buf_size
                   initially holds the size of  buf

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will extract the part of the name of the
       Certificate request subject, specified by the given OID. The
       output will be encoded as described in RFC2253. The output string
       will be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded, depending on the certificate

       Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in
       gnutls/x509.h If raw flag is (0), this function will only return
       known OIDs as text. Other OIDs will be DER encoded, as described
       in RFC2253 -- in hex format with a 'using

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the provided buffer is not long
       enough, and in that case the * buf_size will be updated with the
       required size.  On success 0 is returned.
