This function sets a certificate/private key pair in the
gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type. This function may be called more than
once, in case multiple keys/certificates exist for the server. For clients
that need to send more than its own end entity certificate, e.g., also an
intermediate CA cert, then the
must contain the ordered certificate chain.
Note that the names in the certificate provided will be considered when
selecting the appropriate certificate to use (in case of multiple
This function can also accept URLs at keyfile
that case it will use the private key and certificate indicated by the URLs.
Note that the supported URLs are the ones indicated by
. Before GnuTLS 3.4.0 when a URL was
specified, the pass
part was ignored and a PIN callback had to be
registered, this is no longer the case in current releases.
In case the certfile
is provided as a PKCS 11
URL, then the
certificate, and its present issuers in the token are imported (i.e., forming
the required trust chain).
If that function fails to load the res

state, it must not be reused to load other keys or certificates.
Note that, this function by default returns zero on success and a negative value
on error. Since 3.5.6, when the flag GNUTLS_CERTIFICATE_API_V2

equal to zero). That index can be used to other functions to refer to the
On success this functions returns zero, and otherwise a negative value on error
(see above for modifying that behavior).
