gnutls_certificate_set_x509_simple_pkcs12_file - API function
res, const char * pkcs12file,
gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type, const char *
- gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res
- is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type.
- const char * pkcs12file
- filename of file containing PKCS12 blob.
- gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t type
- is PEM or DER of the pkcs12file .
- const char * password
- optional password used to decrypt PKCS12 file, bags and keys.
This function sets a certificate/private key pair and/or a CRL in the
gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type. This function may be called more than
once (in case multiple keys/certificates exist for the server).
files with a MAC, encrypted bags and PKCS 8
are supported. However, only password based security, and the same password
for all operations, are supported.
file may contain many keys and/or certificates, and this function
will try to auto-detect based on the key ID the certificate and key pair to
use. If the PKCS 12
file contain the issuer of the selected
certificate, it will be appended to the certificate to form a chain.
If more than one private keys are stored in the PKCS 12
file, then only
one key will be read (and it is undefined which one).
It is believed that the limitations of this function is acceptable for most
usage, and that any more flexibility would introduce complexity that would
make it harder to use this functionality at all.
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
it returns an index (greater or
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).
