       int     gnutls_x509_privkey_export2_pkcs8(gnutls_x509_privkey_t	  key,
       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format,  const  char  *  password,	 unsigned  int
       flags, gnutls_datum_t * out);

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
		   Holds the key

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
		   the format of output params. One of PEM or DER.

       const char * password
		   the password that will be used to encrypt the key.

       unsigned int flags
		   an ORed sequence of gnutls_pkcs_encrypt_flags_t

       gnutls_datum_t * out
		   will contain a private key PEM or DER encoded

       This  function  will export the private key to a PKCS8 structure.  Both
       RSA and DSA keys can be exported. For DSA keys we use PKCS  11  defini‐
       tions.  If  the	flags  do  not specify the encryption cipher, then the
       default 3DES (PBES2) will be used.

       The  password can be either ASCII or UTF-8 in the default PBES2 encryp‐
       tion schemas, or ASCII for the PKCS12 schemas.

       The output buffer is allocated using gnutls_malloc().

       If  the	structure  is  PEM  encoded,  it  will have a header of "BEGIN
       ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY" or "BEGIN PRIVATE	 KEY"  if  encryption  is  not

       In  case	 of  failure  a negative error code will be returned, and 0 on

       Since 3.1.3
