SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_certificate_get_x509_key(gnutls_certificate_credentials_t
       res, unsigned index, gnutls_x509_privkey_t * key);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res
                   is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type.

       unsigned index
                   The index of the key to obtain.

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t * key

DESCRIPTION         top

       Obtains a X.509 private key that has been stored in  res with one of
       gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key(), gnutls_certificate_set_key(),
       gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_mem(), or
       gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_mem2(). The returned key must be
       deallocated with gnutls_x509_privkey_deinit() when no longer needed.

       The  index matches the return value of
       gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key() and friends functions, when the
       GNUTLS_CERTIFICATE_API_V2 flag is set.

       If there is no key with the given index,
       GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE is returned. If the key with
       the given index is not a X.509 key, GNUTLS_E_INVALID_REQUEST is
