X509_CRL_set_issuer_name(X509_CRL *x, X509_NAME *name);

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

() 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.

() and () are identical to X509_get_subject_name() and X509_set_subject_name() except that they get and set the issuer name of x.

Similarly (), (), (), and () get or set the subject or issuer names of certificate requests of CRLs, respectively.

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

X509_set_subject_name(), X509_set_issuer_name(), X509_REQ_set_subject_name(), and X509_CRL_set_issuer_name() return 1 for success or 0 for failure. In some cases of failure, the reason can be determined with ERR_get_error(3).
