NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, const char *
       dn, const char ** err);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
                   a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

       const char * dn
                   a comma separated DN string (RFC4514)

       const char ** err
                   indicates the error position (if any)

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will set the DN on the provided certificate.  The
       input string should be plain ASCII or UTF-8 encoded. On DN
       parsing error GNUTLS_E_PARSING_ERROR is returned.

       Note that DNs are not expected to hold DNS information, and thus
       no automatic IDNA conversions are attempted when using this
       function.  If that is required (e.g., store a domain in CN),
       process the corresponding input with gnutls_idna_map().

RETURNS         top

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