NAME

gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_mem - Used to set keys in a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t structure  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_mem(gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res, const gnutls_datum_t * cert, const gnutls_datum_t * key, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res
is an gnutls_certificate_credentials_t structure.
const gnutls_datum_t * cert
contains a certificate list (path) for the specified private key
const gnutls_datum_t * key
is the private key
gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type
is PEM or DER
 

DESCRIPTION

This function sets a certificate/private key pair in the gnutls_certificate_credentials_t structure. This function may be called more than once (in case multiple keys/certificates exist for the server).  

CURRENTLY ARE SUPPORTED

RSA PKCS-1 encoded private keys, DSA private keys.

DSA private keys are encoded the OpenSSL way, which is an ASN.1 DER sequence of 6 INTEGERs - version, p, q, g, pub, priv.

Note that the keyUsage (2.5.29.15) PKIX extension in X.509 certificates is supported. This means that certificates intended for signing cannot be used for ciphersuites that require encryption.

If the certificate and the private key are given in PEM encoding then the strings that hold their values must be null terminated.
