NAME         top

       gnutls_store_pubkey - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_store_pubkey(const char * db_name, gnutls_tdb_t tdb,
       const char * host, const char * service,
       gnutls_certificate_type_t cert_type, const gnutls_datum_t * cert,
       time_t expiration, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS         top

       const char * db_name
                   A file specifying the stored keys (use NULL for the

       gnutls_tdb_t tdb
                   A storage structure or NULL to use the default

       const char * host
                   The peer's name

       const char * service
                   non-NULL if this key is specific to a service (e.g.

       gnutls_certificate_type_t cert_type
                   The type of the certificate

       const gnutls_datum_t * cert
                   The data of the certificate

       time_t expiration
                   The expiration time (use 0 to disable expiration)

       unsigned int flags
                   should be 0.

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will store a raw public-key or a public-key
       provided via a raw (DER-encoded) certificate to the list of
       stored public keys. The key will be considered valid until the
       provided expiration time.

       The  tdb variable if non-null specifies a custom backend for the
       storage of entries. If it is NULL then the default file backend
       will be used.

       Unless an alternative  tdb is provided, the storage format is a
       textual format consisting of a line for each host with fields
       separated by '|'. The contents of the fields are a
       format-identifier which is set to 'g0', the hostname that the
       rest of the data applies to, the numeric port or host name, the
       expiration time in seconds since the epoch (0 for no expiration),
       and a base64 encoding of the raw (DER) public key information
       (SPKI) of the peer.

       As of GnuTLS 3.6.6 this function also accepts raw public keys.

RETURNS         top

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