Sets the needed credentials for the specified type. E.g.
username, password - or public and private keys etc. The cred
parameter is a structure that depends on the specified type and
on the current session (client or server).
In order to minimize memory usage, and share credentials between

For GNUTLS_CRD_CERTIFICATE, cred should be
