       gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8 - API function


       #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);


       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.


       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.


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