#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_get_issuer(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, gnutls_x509_dn_t * dn);


gnutls_x509_crt_t cert

should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t type

gnutls_x509_dn_t * dn

output variable with pointer to uint8_t DN


Return the Certificate's Issuer DN as a gnutls_x509_dn_t data type, that can be decoded using gnutls_x509_dn_get_rdn_ava().

Note that  dn should be treated as constant. Because it points  into the  cert object, you should not use  dn after  cert is deallocated.
