NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn_by_oid - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, const
       char * oid, unsigned int raw_flag, const void * name, unsigned
       int sizeof_name);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
                   a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

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

       unsigned int raw_flag
                   must be 0, or 1 if the data are DER encoded

       const void * name
                   a pointer to the name

       unsigned int sizeof_name
                   holds the size of  name

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will set the part of the name of the Certificate
       subject, specified by the given OID. The input string should be
       ASCII or UTF-8 encoded.

       Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in
       gnutls/x509.h With this function you can only set the known OIDs.
       You can test for known OIDs using gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(). For
       OIDs that are not known (by gnutls) you should properly DER
       encode your data, and call this function with  raw_flag set.

RETURNS         top

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