DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will modify or set a user or administrator's PIN
       for the given token.  If it is called to set a PIN for first time
       the oldpin must be NULL. When setting the admin's PIN with the
       GNUTLS_PIN_SO flag, the  oldpin value must be provided (this
       requirement is relaxed after GnuTLS 3.6.5 since which the PIN
       will be requested if missing).

       negative error value.
