NAME

       X509_get_subject_name, X509_set_subject_name, X509_get_issuer_name, X509_set_issuer_name,
       X509_REQ_get_subject_name, X509_REQ_set_subject_name, X509_CRL_get_issuer,
       X509_CRL_set_issuer_name - get and set issuer or subject names

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/x509.h>

        X509_NAME *X509_get_subject_name(const X509 *x);
        int X509_set_subject_name(X509 *x, X509_NAME *name);

        X509_NAME *X509_get_issuer_name(const X509 *x);
        int X509_set_issuer_name(X509 *x, X509_NAME *name);

        X509_NAME *X509_REQ_get_subject_name(const X509_REQ *req);
        int X509_REQ_set_subject_name(X509_REQ *req, X509_NAME *name);

        X509_NAME *X509_CRL_get_issuer(const X509_CRL *crl);
        int X509_CRL_set_issuer_name(X509_CRL *x, X509_NAME *name);

DESCRIPTION

       X509_get_subject_name() returns the subject name of certificate x. The returned value is
       an internal pointer which MUST NOT be freed.

       X509_set_subject_name() sets the issuer name of certificate x to name. The name parameter
       is copied internally and should be freed up when it is no longer needed.

       X509_get_issuer_name() and X509_set_issuer_name() are identical to X509_get_subject_name()
       and X509_set_subject_name() except the get and set the issuer name of x.

       Similarly X509_REQ_get_subject_name(), X509_REQ_set_subject_name(), X509_CRL_get_issuer()
       and X509_CRL_set_issuer_name() get or set the subject or issuer names of certificate
       requests of CRLs respectively.

RETURN VALUES

       X509_get_subject_name(), X509_get_issuer_name(), X509_REQ_get_subject_name() and
       X509_CRL_get_issuer() return an X509_NAME pointer.

       X509_set_subject_name(), X509_set_issuer_name(), X509_REQ_set_subject_name() and
       X509_CRL_set_issuer_name() return 1 for success and 0 for failure.
