gnutls_x509_crt_get_crl_dist_points - API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_get_crl_dist_points(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, unsigned int seq, void * san, size_t * san_size, unsigned int * reason_flags, unsigned int * critical);


gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure
unsigned int seq
specifies the sequence number of the distribution point (0 for the first one, 1 for the second etc.)
void * san
is the place where the distribution point will be copied to
size_t * san_size
holds the size of ret.
unsigned int * reason_flags
Revocation reasons. An ORed sequence of flags from gnutls_x509_crl_reason_flags_t.
unsigned int * critical
will be non-zero if the extension is marked as critical (may be null)


This function retrieves the CRL distribution points (, contained in the given certificate in the X509v3 Certificate Extensions.


GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER and updates ret_size if
 ret_size is not enough to hold the distribution point, or the type of the distribution point if everything was ok. The type is one of the enumerated gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t. If the certificate does not have an Alternative name with the specified sequence number then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.
