NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_privkey_import2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_privkey_import2(gnutls_x509_privkey_t key, const
       gnutls_datum_t * data, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, const char *
       password, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
                   The data to store the parsed key

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   The DER or PEM encoded key.

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
                   One of DER or PEM

       const char * password
                   A password (optional)

       unsigned int flags
                   an ORed sequence of gnutls_pkcs_encrypt_flags_t

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will import the given DER or PEM encoded key, to
       the native gnutls_x509_privkey_t format, irrespective of the
       input format. The input format is auto-detected.

       The supported formats are basic unencrypted key, PKCS8, PKCS12,
       and the openssl format.

       If the provided key is encrypted but no password was given, then
       GNUTLS_E_DECRYPTION_FAILED is returned. Since GnuTLS 3.4.0 this
       function will utilize the PIN callbacks if any.

RETURNS         top

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