gnutls_x509_crt_print(3) API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_print(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, gnutls_certificate_print_formats_t format, gnutls_datum_t * out);


gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
The data to be printed
gnutls_certificate_print_formats_t format
Indicate the format to use
gnutls_datum_t * out
Newly allocated datum with null terminated string.


This function will pretty print a X.509 certificate, suitable for display to a human.

If the format is GNUTLS_CRT_PRINT_FULL then all fields of the certificate will be output, on multiple lines. The GNUTLS_CRT_PRINT_ONELINE format will generate one line with some selected fields, which is useful for logging purposes.

The output out needs to be deallocated using gnutls_free().


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
