       gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_name  -	Get  certificate's alternative
       name, if any

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int    gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_name(gnutls_x509_crt_t	 cert,
       unsigned	 int seq, void * ret, size_t * ret_size, unsigned int * criti‐

       gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
		   should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure

       unsigned int seq
		   specifies the sequence number of the alt name  (0  for  the
		   first one, 1 for the second etc.)

       void * ret  is the place where the alternative name will be copied to

       size_t * ret_size
		   holds the size of ret.

       unsigned int * critical
		   will	 be  non  zero	if the extension is marked as critical
		   (may be null)

       This function will return the alternative names, contained in the given

       This is specified in X509v3 Certificate Extensions.  GNUTLS will return
       the Alternative name (, or a negative error code.

       When the SAN type is otherName, it will extract the data in the	other‐
       Name's  value field, and GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME is returned.  You may use
       gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_othername_oid() to get the  correspond‐
       ing OID and the "virtual" SAN types (e.g., GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME_XMPP).

       If  an otherName OID is known, the data will be decoded.	 Otherwise the
       returned data will be DER encoded, and you will have to decode it your‐
       self.  Currently, only the RFC 3920 id-on-xmppAddr SAN is recognized.

       the  alternative	 subject  name	type on success, one of the enumerated
       gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t.	 It  will  return  GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEM‐
       ORY_BUFFER  if ret_size is not large enough to hold the value.  In that
       case ret_size will be updated with the required size.  If the  certifi‐
       cate does not have an Alternative name with the specified sequence num‐
       ber then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.
