       gnutls_x509_crt_set_issuer_dn_by_oid  -  Set  the  Certificate  request
       issuer’s distinguished name


       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_set_issuer_dn_by_oid(gnutls_x509_crt_t  crt,  const
       char  *  oid,  unsigned  int  raw_flag, const void * name, unsigned int


       gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
                   a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

       const char * oid
                   holds an Object Identifier in a null terminated string

       unsigned int raw_flag
                   must be 0, or 1 if the data are DER encoded

       const void * name
                   a pointer to the name

       unsigned int sizeof_name
                   holds the size of name


       This function will set the part of the name of the Certificate  issuer,
       specified  by the given OID.  The input string should be ASCII or UTF-8

       Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in gnutls/x509.h With
       this  function  you can only set the known OIDs. You can test for known
       OIDs using gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(). For OIDs that are not known  (by
       gnutls)  you  should  properly  DER  encode  your  data,  and call this
       function with raw_flag set.

       Normally you do not need to  call  this  function,  since  the  signing
       operation will copy the signer’s name as the issuer of the certificate.


       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, otherwise  a  negative  error
