gnutls_x509_crt_get_extension_by_oid - This function returns the specified extension
int gnutls_x509_crt_get_extension_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const char * oid, int indx, void * buf, size_t * sizeof_buf, unsigned int * critical);
- gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure
- const char * oid
holds an Object Identified in null terminated string
- int indx
In case multiple same OIDs exist in the extensions, this specifies which to send. Use zero to get the first one.
- void * buf
a pointer to a structure to hold the name (may be null)
- size_t * sizeof_buf
initially holds the size of buf
- unsigned int * critical
will be non zero if the extension is marked as critical
This function will return the extension specified by the OID in the certificate.
The extensions will be returned as binary data DER encoded, in the provided
A negative value may be returned in case of parsing error.
