NAME

       gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int   gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_dn(gnutls_x509_crt_t   cert,   char   *   buf,  size_t  *
       sizeof_buf);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure

       char * buf  a pointer to a structure to hold the name (may be null)

       size_t * sizeof_buf
                   initially holds the size of buf

DESCRIPTION

       This function will copy the name of the Certificate issuer in  the  provided  buffer.  The
       name  will  be  in  the  form  "C=xxxx,O=yyyy,CN=zzzz" as described in RFC2253. The output
       string will be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded, depending on the certificate data.

       If buf is null then only the size will be filled.

RETURNS

       GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the provided buffer is not long enough, and in  that  case
       the *sizeof_buf will be updated with the required size.  On success 0 is returned.
