gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8(3) gnutls gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8(3)

NAME
       gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8	 -  This function will import a DER or
       PEM PKCS8 encoded key

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8(gnutls_x509_privkey_t  key,	 const
       gnutls_datum_t * data, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, const char * pass‐
       word, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
		   The structure 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
		   the password to decrypt the key (if it is encrypted).

       unsigned int flags
		   0 if encrypted or GNUTLS_PKCS_PLAIN if not encrypted.

DESCRIPTION
       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 key.

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

RETURNS
       On  success,  GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS  is returned, otherwise a negative error
       value.
