NAME         top

       gnutls_tpm_privkey_generate - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/tpm.h>

       int gnutls_tpm_privkey_generate(gnutls_pk_algorithm_t pk, unsigned
       int bits, const char * srk_password, const char * key_password,
       gnutls_tpmkey_fmt_t format, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t pub_format,
       gnutls_datum_t * privkey, gnutls_datum_t * pubkey, unsigned int

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_pk_algorithm_t pk
                   the public key algorithm

       unsigned int bits
                   the security bits

       const char * srk_password
                   a password to protect the exported key (optional)

       const char * key_password
                   the password for the TPM (optional)

       gnutls_tpmkey_fmt_t format
                   the format of the private key

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t pub_format
                   the format of the public key

       gnutls_datum_t * privkey
                   the generated key

       gnutls_datum_t * pubkey
                   the corresponding public key (may be null)

       unsigned int flags
                   should be a list of GNUTLS_TPM_* flags

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will generate a private key in the TPM chip. The
       private key will be generated within the chip and will be exported in
       a wrapped with TPM's master key form. Furthermore the wrapped key can
       be protected with the provided  password .

       Note that bits in TPM is quantized value. If the input value is not
       one of the allowed values, then it will be quantized to one of 512,
       1024, 2048, 4096, 8192 and 16384.

       Allowed flags are:

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative
       error value.
