gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_import_url — API function


#include <gnutls/pkcs11.h>

int gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_import_url(gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_t pkey, const char * url, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_t pkey

The private key

const char * url

a PKCS 11 url identifying the key

unsigned int flags

Or sequence of GNUTLS_PKCS11_OBJ_* flags


This function will "import" a PKCS 11 URL identifying a private key to the gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_t type. In reality since in most cases keys cannot be exported, the private key structure is being associated with the available operations on the token.


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