NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(const char * oid);

ARGUMENTS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will inform about known DN OIDs. This is useful
       since functions like gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn_by_oid() use the
       information on known OIDs to properly encode their input. Object
       Identifiers that are not known are not encoded by these
       functions, and their input is stored directly into the ASN.1
       structure. In that case of unknown OIDs, you have the
       responsibility of DER encoding your data.

RETURNS         top

       1 on known OIDs and 0 otherwise.
