NAME gnutls_pkcs11_init - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_pkcs11_init(unsigned int flags, const char * configfile);


const char * configfile either NULL or the location of a configuration file

DESCRIPTION This function will initialize the PKCS 11 subsystem in gnutls. It will read a configuration file if GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_AUTO is used or allow you to independently load PKCS 11 modules using gnutls_pkcs11_add_provider() if GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_MANUAL is specified.

Normally you dont need to call this function since it is being called by gnutls_global_init() using the GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_AUTO. If other option is required then it must be called before it.

RETURNS On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
