X509_get_subject_name(3)            OpenSSL           X509_get_subject_name(3)

       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

       libcrypto, -lcrypto

        #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);

       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.

       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.
