gnutls_pkcs11_token_get_info — API function


#include <gnutls/pkcs11.h>

int gnutls_pkcs11_token_get_info(const char * url, gnutls_pkcs11_token_info_t ttype, void * output, size_t * output_size);


const char * url

should contain a PKCS 11 URL

gnutls_pkcs11_token_info_t ttype

Denotes the type of information requested

void * output

where output will be stored

size_t * output_size

contains the maximum size of the output buffer and will be overwritten with the actual size.


This function will return information about the PKCS 11 token such as the label, id, etc.

When output is text, a null terminated string is written to  output and its string length is written to  output_size (without null terminator). If the buffer is too small,  output_size will contain the expected buffer size (with null terminator for text) and return GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER.


GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) on success or a negative error code on error.
