SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_set_issuer_dn_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, const
       char * oid, unsigned int raw_flag, const void * name, unsigned int

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 string

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

       const void * name
                   a pointer to the name

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will set the part of the name of the Certificate
       issuer, 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.

       Normally you do not need to call this function, since the signing
       operation will copy the signer's name as the issuer of the

RETURNS         top

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