gnutls_x509_rdn_get_by_oid - parse an RDN sequence and returns a string


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_rdn_get_by_oid(const gnutls_datum_t * idn, const char * oid, int indx, unsigned int raw_flag, void * buf, size_t * sizeof_buf);


const gnutls_datum_t * idn should contain a DER encoded RDN sequence
const char * oid an Object Identifier
int indx In case multiple same OIDs exist in the RDN indicates which to send. Use 0 for the first one.
unsigned int raw_flag If non zero then the raw DER data are returned.
void * buf a pointer to a structure to hold the peer’s name
size_t * sizeof_buf holds the size of buf


This function will return the name of the given Object identifier, of the RDN sequence. The name will be encoded using the rules from RFC2253.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, or GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER is returned and *sizeof_buf is updated if the provided buffer is not long enough, otherwise a negative error value.
