X509_GET_SUBJECT_NAME(3)	    OpenSSL	      X509_GET_SUBJECT_NAME(3)

NAME
       X509_get_subject_name, X509_set_subject_name, X509_get_issuer_name,
       X509_set_issuer_name, X509_REQ_get_subject_name,
       X509_REQ_set_subject_name, X509_CRL_get_issuer,
       X509_CRL_set_issuer_name	- get and set issuer or	subject	names

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/x509.h>

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

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

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

	X509_NAME *X509_CRL_get_issuer(const 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 issuer 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 certificate 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.
