NAME

gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known - This function will return true if the given OID is known  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(const char * oid);  

ARGUMENTS

const char * oid
holds an Object Identifier in a null terminated string
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will inform about known DN OIDs. This is useful since functions like gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn_by_oid() use the information on known OIDs to properly encode their input. Object Identifiers that are not known are not encoded by these functions, and their input is stored directly into the ASN.1 structure. In that case of unknown OIDs, you have the responsibility of DER encoding your data.

Returns 1 on known OIDs and 0 otherwise.
