NAME gnutls_pkcs11_set_pin_function - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

void gnutls_pkcs11_set_pin_function(gnutls_pkcs11_pin_callback_t fn, void * userdata);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_pkcs11_pin_callback_t fn The PIN callback

void * userdata data to be supplied to callback

DESCRIPTION This function will set a callback function to be used when a PIN is required for PKCS 11 operations.

Callback for PKCS11 PIN entry. The callback provides the PIN code to unlock the token with label token_label, specified by the URL

The PIN code, as a NUL-terminated ASCII string, should be copied into the pin buffer (of maximum size pin_max), and return 0 to indicate success. Alternatively, the callback may return a negative gnutls error code to indicate failure and cancel PIN entry (in which case, the con- tents of the pin parameter are ignored).

When a PIN is required, the callback will be invoked repeatedly (and indefinitely) until either the returned PIN code is correct, the call- back returns failure, or the token refuses login (e.g. when the token is locked due to too many incorrect PINs!). For the first such invoca- tion, the attempt counter will have value zero; it will increase by one for each subsequent attempt.

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