is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type.
const char * certfile
is a file that containing the certificate list (path) for
the specified private key, in PKCS7 format, or a list of
const char * keyfile
is a file that contains the private key
is PEM or DER
This function sets a certificate/private key pair in the
gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type. This function may be called
more than once, in case multiple keys/certificates exist for the
server. For clients that need to send more than its own end entity
certificate, e.g., also an intermediate CA cert, then the
certfile must contain the ordered certificate chain.
Note that the names in the certificate provided will be considered
when selecting the appropriate certificate to use (in case of
multiple certificate/key pairs).
This function can also accept URLs at keyfile and certfile . In
that case it will use the private key and certificate indicated by
the URLs. Note that the supported URLs are the ones indicated by
In case the certfile is provided as a PKCS 11 URL, then the
certificate, and its present issuers in the token are imported (i.e.,
forming the required trust chain).
If that function fails to load the res structure is at an undefined
state, it must not be reused to load other keys or certificates.
Note that, this function by default returns zero on success and a
negative value on error. Since 3.5.6, when the flag
GNUTLS_CERTIFICATE_API_V2 is set using gnutls_certificate_set_flags()
it returns an index (greater or equal to zero). That index can be
used to other functions to refer to the added key-pair.
