NAME

       gnutls_privkey_import_ext4 - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/abstract.h>

       int     gnutls_privkey_import_ext4(gnutls_privkey_t     pkey,     void     *     userdata,
       gnutls_privkey_sign_data_func  sign_data_fn,  gnutls_privkey_sign_hash_func  sign_hash_fn,
       gnutls_privkey_decrypt_func      decrypt_fn,     gnutls_privkey_deinit_func     deinit_fn,
       gnutls_privkey_info_func info_fn, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_privkey_t pkey
                   The private key

       void * userdata
                   private data to be provided to the callbacks

       gnutls_privkey_sign_data_func sign_data_fn
                   callback for signature operations (may be NULL)

       gnutls_privkey_sign_hash_func sign_hash_fn
                   callback for signature operations (may be NULL)

       gnutls_privkey_decrypt_func decrypt_fn
                   callback for decryption operations (may be NULL)

       gnutls_privkey_deinit_func deinit_fn
                   a deinitialization function

       gnutls_privkey_info_func info_fn
                   returns info about the public key algorithm (should not be NULL)

       unsigned int flags
                   Flags for the import

DESCRIPTION

       This function will associate the given callbacks with the gnutls_privkey_t type. At  least
       one  of  the  callbacks  must be non-null. If a deinitialization function is provided then
       flags is assumed to contain GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_IMPORT_AUTO_RELEASE.

       Note that in contrast with  the  signing  function  of  gnutls_privkey_import_ext3(),  the
       signing  functions  provided  to  this function take explicitly the signature algorithm as
       parameter and different functions are provided to sign the data and hashes.

       The  sign_hash_fn is to be called to sign pre-hashed data. The input to  the  callback  is
       the  output of the hash (such as SHA256) corresponding to the signature algorithm. For RSA
       PKCS1 signatures, the signature algorithm can be set to GNUTLS_SIGN_RSA_RAW, and  in  that
       case the data should be handled as if they were an RSA PKCS1 DigestInfo structure.

       The   sign_data_fn  is  to  be  called  to sign data. The input data will be he data to be
       signed (and hashed), with the provided signature algorithm. This function is  to  be  used
       for signature algorithms like Ed25519 which cannot take pre-hashed data as input.

       When  both   sign_data_fn  and   sign_hash_fn  functions are provided they must be able to
       operate on all the supported signature algorithms, unless prohibited by the  type  of  the
       algorithm (e.g., as with Ed25519).

       The   info_fn  must  provide  information  on  the  signature algorithms supported by this
       private   key,    and    should    support    the    flags    GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_INFO_PK_ALGO,
       GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_INFO_HAVE_SIGN_ALGO  and  GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_INFO_PK_ALGO_BITS.  It must return
       -1 on unknown flags.

RETURNS

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
