gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name - API function
int gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert,
unsigned int seq, void * ian, size_t * ian_size, unsigned int *
should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t type
unsigned int seq
specifies the sequence number of the alt name (0 for the
first one, 1 for the second etc.)
void * ian is the place where the alternative name will be copied to
size_t * ian_size
holds the size of ian.
unsigned int * critical
will be non-zero if the extension is marked as critical
(may be null)
This function retrieves the Issuer Alternative Name (126.96.36.199),
contained in the given certificate in the X509v3 Certificate
When the SAN type is otherName, it will extract the data in the
otherName's value field, and GNUTLS_SAN_OTHERNAME is returned. You may
use gnutls_x509_crt_get_subject_alt_othername_oid() to get the
corresponding OID and the "virtual" SAN types (e.g.,
If an otherName OID is known, the data will be decoded. Otherwise the
returned data will be DER encoded, and you will have to decode it
yourself. Currently, only the RFC 3920 id-on-xmppAddr Issuer AltName
the alternative issuer name type on success, one of the enumerated
gnutls_x509_subject_alt_name_t. It will return
GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if ian_size is not large enough to hold
the value. In that case ian_size will be updated with the required
size. If the certificate does not have an Alternative name with the
specified sequence number then GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is
