NAME gnutls_credentials_set - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_credentials_set(gnutls_session_t session, gnutls_creden- tials_type_t type, void * cred);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_session_t session is a gnutls_session_t structure.

gnutls_credentials_type_t type is the type of the credentials

void * cred is a pointer to a structure.

DESCRIPTION Sets the needed credentials for the specified type. Eg username, pass- word - or public and private keys etc. The cred parameter is a struc- ture that depends on the specified type and on the current session (client or server).

In order to minimize memory usage, and share credentials between sev- eral threads gnutls keeps a pointer to cred, and not the whole cred structure. Thus you will have to keep the structure allocated until you call gnutls_deinit().

For GNUTLS_CRD_ANON, cred should be gnutls_anon_client_credentials_t in case of a client. In case of a server it should be gnutls_anon_server_credentials_t.

For GNUTLS_CRD_SRP, cred should be gnutls_srp_client_credentials_t in case of a client, and gnutls_srp_server_credentials_t, in case of a server.

For GNUTLS_CRD_CERTIFICATE, cred should be gnutls_certificate_creden- tials_t.

RETURNS On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (zero) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
