gnutls_privkey_init - API function
#include <gnutls/abstract.h> int gnutls_privkey_init(gnutls_privkey_t * key);
gnutls_privkey_t * key A pointer to the type to be initialized
This function will initialize a private key object. The object can be used to generate, import, and perform cryptographic operations on the associated private key. Note that when the underlying private key is a PKCS11 key (i.e., when imported with a PKCS11 URI), the limitations of gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_init() apply to this object as well. In versions of GnuTLS later than 3.5.11 the object is protected using locks and a single gnutls_privkey_t can be re-used by many threads. However, for performance it is recommended to utilize one object per key per thread.
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
