NAME

gnutls_x509_crq_get_subject_alt_othername_oid - Get SAN otherName OID  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crq_get_subject_alt_othername_oid(gnutls_x509_crq_t cert, unsigned int seq, void * ret, size_t * ret_size);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_x509_crq_t cert
should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_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 otherName OID will be copied to
size_t * ret_size
holds the size of ret.
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will extract the type OID of an otherName Subject Alternative Name, contained in the given certificate, and return the type as an enumerated element.

This function is only useful if gnutls_x509_crq_get_subject_alt_name() returned GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME.  

RETURNS

the alternative subject name type on success, one of the enumerated gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t. For supported OIDs, it will return one of the virtual (GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME_*) types, e.g. GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME_XMPP, and GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME for unknown OIDs. It will return GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_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 certificate does not have an Alternative name with the specified sequence number and with the otherName type then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.  

SINCE

2.8.0
