should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t type
unsigned int * critical
will be non-zero if the extension is marked as critical
int * pathlen

char ** policyLanguage
output variable with OID of policy language
char ** policy
output variable with policy data
size_t * sizeof_policy
output variable size of policy data


This function will get information from a proxy certificate. It reads the ProxyCertInfo X.509 extension (
