Forgot to add: get_encoding() returns a raw binary blob of the exchanged
identification payload, having arbitrary bytes. For Distinguished Names,
this is raw ASN.1 DER encoding. The IKE identification type can be
queried using the get_type() method.

To get the human readable string representation of the identity, just
print it to a string buffer.
