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 * password, 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 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.  

RETURNS

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