NAME

       gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known - API function

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.
