       gnutls_certificate_client_set_retrieve_function - API function

       #include <gnutls/compat.h>

       void    gnutls_certificate_client_set_retrieve_function(gnutls_certifi‐
       cate_credentials_t cred, gnutls_certificate_client_retrieve_function  *

       gnutls_certificate_credentials_t cred
		   is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t structure.

       gnutls_certificate_client_retrieve_function * func
		   is the callback function

       This  function  sets  a	callback to be called in order to retrieve the
       certificate to be used in  the  handshake.   You	 are  advised  to  use
       gnutls_certificate_set_retrieve_function2()  because  it	 is  much more
       efficient in the processing it requires from gnutls.

       The callback's function prototype is: int (*callback)(gnutls_session_t,
       const  gnutls_datum_t*  req_ca_dn,  int	nreqs,	const  gnutls_pk_algo‐
       rithm_t* pk_algos, int pk_algos_length, gnutls_retr_st* st);

	req_ca_cert is only used in X.509 certificates.	 Contains a list  with
       the  CA	names  that  the server considers trusted.  Normally we should
       send a certificate that is signed by one of these CAs. These names  are
       DER   encoded.  To  get	a  more	 meaningful  value  use	 the  function

	pk_algos contains a list  with	server's  acceptable  signature	 algo‐
       rithms.	 The  certificate  returned  should support the server's given

	st should contain the certificates and private keys.

       If the callback function is provided then gnutls will call it,  in  the
       handshake,  if  a certificate is requested by the server (and after the
       certificate request message has been received).

       The callback function should set the certificate list to be  sent,  and
       return  0 on success. If no certificate was selected then the number of
       certificates should be set to zero. The value (-1) indicates error  and
       the handshake will be terminated.
