NAME

       gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8 - API function

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 data 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.

       If  the  GNUTLS_PKCS_PLAIN  flag  is  specified  and  the supplied data are encrypted then
       GNUTLS_E_DECRYPTION_FAILED is returned.

RETURNS

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