X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object(3SSL)    OpenSSL   X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object(3SSL)



NAME
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object, X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data,
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object, X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data,
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt, X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID,
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ - X509_NAME_ENTRY utility functions

SYNOPSIS
       ASN1_OBJECT * X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne);
       ASN1_STRING * X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne);

       int X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne, ASN1_OBJECT *obj);
       int X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne, int type, const
       unsigned char *bytes, int len);

       X509_NAME_ENTRY *X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne,
       const char *field, int type, const unsigned char *bytes, int len);
       X509_NAME_ENTRY *X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne,
       int nid, int type,unsigned char *bytes, int len); X509_NAME_ENTRY
       *X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne, ASN1_OBJECT *obj,
       int type, const unsigned char *bytes, int len);

DESCRIPTION
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object() retrieves the field name of ne in and
       ASN1_OBJECT structure.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data() retrieves the field value of ne in and
       ASN1_STRING structure.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object() sets the field name of ne to obj.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data() sets the field value of ne to string type
       type and value determined by bytes and len.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(), X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID() and
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ() create and return an X509_NAME_ENTRY
       structure.

NOTES
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object() and X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data() can be used
       to examine an X509_NAME_ENTRY function as returned by
       X509_NAME_get_entry() for example.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(), X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID(), and
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ() create and return an

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(), X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ(),
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID() and X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data() are
       seldom used in practice because X509_NAME_ENTRY structures are almost
       always part of X509_NAME structures and the corresponding X509_NAME
       functions are typically used to create and add new entries in a single
       operation.

       The arguments of these functions support similar options to the
       similarly named ones of the corresponding X509_NAME functions such as
       X509_NAME_add_entry_by_txt(). So for example type can be set to
       MBSTRING_ASC but in the case of X509_set_data() the field name must be
       set first so the relevant field information can be looked up
       internally.
