gnutls_pcert_import_rawpk_raw — API function


#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_pcert_import_rawpk_raw(gnutls_pcert_st* pcert, const gnutls_datum_t* rawpubkey, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, unsigned int key_usage, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_pcert_st* pcert

The pcert structure to import the data into.

const gnutls_datum_t* rawpubkey

The raw public-key in gnutls_datum_t format to be imported.

gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format

The format of the raw public-key. DER or PEM.

unsigned int key_usage

An ORed sequence of GNUTLS_KEY_* flags.

unsigned int flags

zero for now


This convenience function will import (i.e. convert) the given raw public key  rawpubkey into a gnutls_pcert_st structure. The structure must be deinitialized afterwards using gnutls_pcert_deinit(). Note that the caller is responsible for freeing  rawpubkey . All necessary values will be copied into  pcert .

Key usage (as defined by X.509 extension ( can be explicitly set because there is no certificate structure around the key to define this value. See for more info gnutls_x509_crt_get_key_usage().


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