NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name2(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert,
       unsigned int seq, void * ian, size_t * ian_size, unsigned int *
       ian_type, unsigned int * critical);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
                   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 ret.

       unsigned int * ian_type
                   holds the type of the alternative name (one of

       unsigned int * critical
                   will be non-zero if the extension is marked as
                   critical (may be null)

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will return the alternative names, contained in the
       given certificate. It is the same as
       gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer_alt_name() except for the fact that it
       will return the type of the alternative name in  ian_type even if
       the function fails for some reason (i.e.  the buffer provided is
       not enough).

RETURNS         top

       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
