gnutls_privkey_init(3)		    gnutls		gnutls_privkey_init(3)

NAME
       gnutls_privkey_init - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<gnutls/abstract.h>

       int gnutls_privkey_init(gnutls_privkey_t	* key);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_privkey_t	* key
		   A pointer to	the type to be initialized

DESCRIPTION
       This  function  will initialize a private key object. The object	can be
       used to generate, import, and perform cryptographic operations  on  the
       associated private key.

       Note  that  when	the underlying private key is a	PKCS11 key (i.e., when
       imported	   with	   a	PKCS11	  URI),	    the	    limitations	    of
       gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_init()  apply to this object as well. In versions
       of GnuTLS later than 3.5.11 the object is protected using locks	and  a
       single  gnutls_privkey_t	 can  be re-used by many threads. However, for
       performance it is recommended to	utilize	one object per key per thread.

RETURNS
       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0)	is returned, otherwise a negative  er-
       ror value.

SINCE
       2.12.0
