gnutls_pkcs11_obj_import_url - API function

#include <gnutls/pkcs11.h>

int gnutls_pkcs11_obj_import_url(gnutls_pkcs11_obj_t obj, const char * url, unsigned int flags);

The structure to store the object
a PKCS 11 url identifying the key
Or sequence of GNUTLS_PKCS11_OBJ_* flags

This function will "import" a PKCS 11 URL identifying an object (e.g. certificate) to the gnutls_pkcs11_obj_t type. This does not involve any parsing (such as X.509 or OpenPGP) since the gnutls_pkcs11_obj_t is format agnostic. Only data are transferred.

If the flag GNUTLS_PKCS11_OBJ_FLAG_OVERWRITE_TRUSTMOD_EXT is specified any certificate read, will have its extensions overwritten by any stapled extensions in the trust module.

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