SYNOPSIS



 #include <openssl/x509.h>

 X509_NAME *X509_get_subject_name(X509 *x);
 int X509_set_subject_name(X509 *x, X509_NAME *name);

 X509_NAME *X509_get_issuer_name(X509 *x);
 int X509_set_issuer_name(X509 *x, X509_NAME *name);

 X509_NAME *X509_REQ_get_subject_name(X509_REQ *req);
 int X509_REQ_set_subject_name(X509_REQ *req, X509_NAME *name);

 X509_NAME *X509_CRL_get_issuer(X509_CRL *crl);
 int X509_CRL_set_issuer_name(X509_CRL *x, X509_NAME *name);



DESCRIPTION

X509_get_subject_name() returns the subject name of certificate x. The returned value is an internal pointer which MUST NOT be freed.

X509_set_subject_name() sets the issuer name of certificate x to name. The name parameter is copied internally and should be freed up when it is no longer needed.

X509_get_issuer_name() and X509_set_issuer_name() are identical to X509_get_subject_name() and X509_set_subject_name() except the get and set the isssuer name of x.

Similarly X509_REQ_get_subject_name(), X509_REQ_set_subject_name(),
X509_CRL_get_issuer() and X509_CRL_set_issuer_name() get or set the subject or issuer names of certifcate requests of CRLs respectively.

RETURN VALUES

X509_get_subject_name(), X509_get_issuer_name(), X509_REQ_get_subject_name() and X509_CRL_get_issuer() return an X509_NAME pointer.

X509_set_subject_name(), X509_set_issuer_name(), X509_REQ_set_subject_name() and X509_CRL_set_issuer_name() return 1 for success and 0 for failure.

HISTORY

X509_REQ_get_subject_name() is a function in OpenSSL 1.1.0 and a macro in earlier versions.

X509_CRL_get_issuer() is a function in OpenSSL 1.1.0. It was first added to OpenSSL 1.0.0 as a macro.
