int gnutls_x509_crt_get_ca_status(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert,

This function will return certificates CA status, by reading the
basicConstraints X.509 extension (188.8.131.52). If the certificate is a CA a
positive value will be returned, or (0) if the certificate does not have CA
if you want to read the
pathLenConstraint field too.
If the certificate is a CA a positive value will be returned, or (0) if the
certificate does not have CA flag set. A negative error code may be returned
in case of errors. If the certificate does not contain the basicConstraints
extension GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE will be returned.
