gnutls_x509_crt_set_serial - API function
int gnutls_x509_crt_set_serial(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const
void * serial, size_t serial_size);
- gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
- a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t
- const void * serial
- The serial number
- size_t serial_size
- Holds the size of the serial field.
This function will set the X.509 certificate's serial number. While the serial
number is an integer, it is often handled as an opaque field by several CAs.
For this reason this function accepts any kind of data as a serial number. To
be consistent with the X.509/PKIX specifications the provided serial
should be a big-endian positive number (i.e. it's leftmost bit should be
The size of the serial is restricted to 20 bytes maximum by RFC5280. This
function allows writing more than 20 bytes but the generated certificates in
that case may be rejected by other implementations.
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS
(0) is returned, otherwise a negative error
