CertCompareCertificateName

Windows CE 3.0

This function compares two certificate CERT_NAME_BLOB structures to determine whether they are identical. CERT_NAME_BLOB structures are used for the subject and the issuer of certificates.

DWORD dwCertEncodingType,
PCERT_NAME_BLOB pCertName1,
PCERT_NAME_BLOB pCertName2
);

dwCertEncodingType
[in] Specifies the encoding type used. Currently, only X509_ASN_ENCODING is used; however, additional encoding types may be added in the future.

pCertName1

[in] Pointer to a CERT_NAME_BLOB structure for the first name in the comparison.

pCertName2
[in] Pointer to a CERT_NAME_BLOB structure for the second name in the comparison.

Return Values
