       int gnutls_x509_privkey_get_seed(gnutls_x509_privkey_t key,
       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * digest, void * seed, size_t * seed_size);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_privkey_t type

       void * seed where seed will be copied to

       size_t * seed_size
                   originally holds the size of  seed , will be updated with
