gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name − API function
int gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, unsigned int seq, void * ret, size_t * ret_size, unsigned int * critical);
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 (0) if the extension is marked as critical (may be null)
This function retrieves the Issuer Alternative Name (188.8.131.52), contained in the given certificate in the X509v3 Certificate Extensions.
When the SAN type is otherName, it will extract the data in the otherName’s value field, and GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME is returned. You may use gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_othername_oid() to get the corresponding 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 yourself. Currently, only the RFC 3920 id−on−xmppAddr Issuer AltName is recognized.
the alternative issuer name type on success, one of the enumerated gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t. 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 then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned.
