gnutls_x509_crt_set_proxy_dn - API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_set_proxy_dn(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, gnutls_x509_crt_t eecrt, unsigned int raw_flag, const void * name, unsigned int sizeof_name);


gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure with the new proxy cert
gnutls_x509_crt_t eecrt
the end entity certificate that will be issuing the proxy
unsigned int raw_flag
must be 0, or 1 if the CN is DER encoded
const void * name
a pointer to the CN name, may be NULL (but MUST then be added later)
unsigned int sizeof_name
holds the size of name


This function will set the subject in crt to the end entity's
 eecrt subject name, and add a single Common Name component  name of size  sizeof_name  This corresponds to the required proxy certificate naming style. Note that if name is NULL, you MUST set it later by using gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn_by_oid() or similar.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
