X509_NAME_ENTRY_GET_OBJECT(3)	    OpenSSL	 X509_NAME_ENTRY_GET_OBJECT(3)

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
	#include <openssl/x509.h>

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

	int X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne, const 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, const unsigned	char *bytes,
						       int len);
	X509_NAME_ENTRY	*X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne,
						       const 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.

RETURN VALUES
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object() returns a valid ASN1_OBJECT	structure if
       it is set or NULL if an error occurred.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data() returns a valid ASN1_STRING structure	if it
       is set or NULL if an error occurred.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object() and	X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data() return 1 on
       success or 0 on error.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(),	X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID()	and
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ() return a	valid X509_NAME_ENTRY on
       success or NULL if an error occurred.
