gnutls_x509_crt_get_ca_status - API function
#include <gnutls/x509.h> int gnutls_x509_crt_get_ca_status(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, unsigned int * critical);
gnutls_x509_crt_t cert should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure unsigned int * critical will be non zero if the extension is marked as critical
This function will return certificates CA status, by reading the basicConstraints X.509 extension (184.108.40.206). If the certificate is a CA a positive value will be returned, or zero if the certificate does not have CA flag set. Use gnutls_x509_crt_get_basic_constraints() if you want to read the pathLenConstraint field too.
A negative value may be returned in case of parsing error. If the certificate does not contain the basicConstraints extension GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE will be returned.
