NAME         top

       gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_mem2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       res, const gnutls_datum_t * cert, const gnutls_datum_t * key,
       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type, const char * pass, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res
                   is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type.

       const gnutls_datum_t * cert
                   contains a certificate list (path) for the specified
                   private key

       const gnutls_datum_t * key
                   is the private key, or NULL

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type
                   is PEM or DER

       const char * pass
                   is the key's password

       unsigned int flags
                   an ORed sequence of gnutls_pkcs_encrypt_flags_t

DESCRIPTION         top

       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

       Note that the keyUsage ( PKIX extension in X.509
       certificates is supported. This means that certificates intended for
       signing cannot be used for ciphersuites that require encryption.

       If the certificate and the private key are given in PEM encoding then
       the strings that hold their values must be null terminated.

       The  key may be NULL if you are using a sign callback, see

       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.

RETURNS         top

       On success this functions returns zero, and otherwise a negative
       value on error (see above for modifying that behavior).
