ARGUMENTS

gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure
const char * oid
holds an Object Identifier in a null terminated string
unsigned int raw_flag

DESCRIPTION

This function will set the part of the name of the Certificate subject, specified by the given OID. The input string should be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded.

Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in gnutls/x509.h With this function you can only set the known OIDs. You can test for known OIDs using gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(). For OIDs that are not known (by gnutls) you should properly DER encode your data, and call this function with raw_flag set.

Returns 0 on success.
