alternative for x509 "name" field

shiva kumar
Hi,

Compared to OpenSSL 1.0.2 and 1.1.0 and above, in  struct x509_st , char *name field has been removed, what is the alternative for it and what is the impact? can anyone please answer the query? 

Thanks and regards

Hi,
although the name field was present in 1.0.2 it was not used for
anything. So there was no point in keeping it once the structure was
made non-public in 1.1.0.
