The data to store the parsed key
const gnutls_datum_t * data
The DER or PEM encoded key.
One of DER or PEM
const char * password
the password to decrypt the key (if it is encrypted).
unsigned int flags
0 if encrypted or GNUTLS_PKCS_PLAIN if not encrypted.
This function will convert the given DER or PEM encoded PKCS8 2.0
encrypted key to the native gnutls_x509_privkey_t format. The
output will be stored in key . Both RSA and DSA keys can be
imported, and flags can only be used to indicate an unencrypted
The password can be either ASCII or UTF-8 in the default PBES2
encryption schemas, or ASCII for the PKCS12 schemas.
If the Certificate is PEM encoded it should have a header of
"ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY", or "PRIVATE KEY". You only need to
specify the flags if the key is DER encoded, since in that case
the encryption status cannot be auto-detected.
If the GNUTLS_PKCS_PLAIN flag is specified and the supplied data
are encrypted then GNUTLS_E_DECRYPTION_FAILED is returned.
