NAME

gnutls_certificate_set_x509_simple_pkcs12_mem - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_certificate_set_x509_simple_pkcs12_mem(gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res, const gnutls_datum * p12blob, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type, const char * password);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res
is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t structure.
const gnutls_datum * p12blob
the PKCS12 blob.
gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type
is PEM or DER of the pkcs12file.
const char * password
optional password used to decrypt PKCS12 file, bags and keys.
 

DESCRIPTION

This function sets a certificate/private key pair and/or a CRL in the gnutls_certificate_credentials_t structure. This function may be called more than once (in case multiple keys/certificates exist for the server).  

MAC

ed PKCS12 files are supported. Encrypted PKCS12 bags are supported. Encrypted PKCS8 private keys are supported. However, only password based security, and the same password for all operations, are supported.

The private keys may be RSA PKCS1 or DSA private keys encoded in the OpenSSL way.

PKCS12 file may contain many keys and/or certificates, and there is no way to identify which key/certificate pair you want. You should make sure the PKCS12 file only contain one key/certificate pair and/or one CRL.

It is believed that the limitations of this function is acceptable for most usage, and that any more flexibility would introduce complexity that would make it harder to use this functionality at all.  

RETURNS

GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.  

SINCE

2.8.0
