[openssl-users] Duplicating const X509_NAME

Hi all,

I was wondering how to properly make a clone of a const X509_NAME in
OpenSSL 1.1?

In particular, I am obtaining a const X509_NAME* via OCSP_resp_get0_id()
and would like to pass it to X509_find_by_subject() which takes a
X509_NAME* (non-const). I looked into using X509_NAME_dup() to obtain a
local copy -- which looked like the obvious approach -- but that also
only takes a non-const parameter.

Any ideas? With

Thanks and kind regards
