gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid(3)    gnutls    gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid(3)

NAME
       gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid  -	 This function returns the Certificate
       request subject's distinguished name

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

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

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
		   should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t structure

       const char * oid
		   holds an Object Identified in null terminated string

       int indx	   In case multiple same OIDs exist in the RDN, this specifies
		   which to send. Use zero 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 null)

       size_t * sizeof_buf
		   initially holds the size of buf

DESCRIPTION
       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 data.

       Some  helper  macros with popular OIDs can be found in gnutls/x509.h If
       raw flag is zero, this function will only return known  OIDs  as	 text.
       Other  OIDs will be DER encoded, as described in RFC2253 -- in hex for‐
       mat with a 'using gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known().

       If buf is null then only the size will be filled.

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