gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_init - API function

#include <gnutls/pkcs11.h>

int gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_init(gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_t * key);

A pointer to the type to be initialized

This function will initialize an private key structure. This structure can be used for accessing an underlying PKCS11 object.

In versions of GnuTLS later than 3.5.11 the object is protected using locks and a single gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_t can be re-used by many threads. However, for performance it is recommended to utilize one object per key per thread.

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