gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_generate2 - API function

#include <gnutls/pkcs11.h>

int gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_generate2(const char * url, gnutls_pk_algorithm_t pk, unsigned int bits, const char * label, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t fmt, gnutls_datum_t * pubkey, unsigned int flags);

a token URL
the public key algorithm
the security bits
a label
the format of output params. PEM or DER
will hold the public key (may be NULL)
zero or an OR'ed sequence of GNUTLS_PKCS11_OBJ_FLAGs

This function will generate a private key in the specified by the url token. The private key will be generate within the token and will not be exportable. This function will store the DER-encoded public key in the SubjectPublicKeyInfo format in pubkey . The pubkey should be deinitialized using gnutls_free().

Note that when generating an elliptic curve key, the curve can be substituted in the place of the bits parameter using the GNUTLS_CURVE_TO_BITS() macro.

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