NAME

       gnutls_privkey_init - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/abstract.h>

       int gnutls_privkey_init(gnutls_privkey_t * key);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_privkey_t * key
                   A pointer to the type to be initialized

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  will  initialize a private key object. The object can be used to generate,
       import, and perform cryptographic operations on the associated private key.

       Note that when the underlying private key is a PKCS11 key  (i.e.,  when  imported  with  a
       PKCS11 URI), the limitations of gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_init() apply to this object as well.
       In versions of GnuTLS later than 3.5.11 the object is protected using locks and  a  single
       gnutls_privkey_t  can  be  re-used  by  many  threads.  However,  for  performance  it  is
       recommended to utilize one object per key per thread.

RETURNS

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

SINCE

       2.12.0
