NAME gnutls_pubkey_get_key_id - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_pubkey_get_key_id(gnutls_pubkey_t key, unsigned int flags, unsigned char * output_data, size_t * output_data_size);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_pubkey_t key Holds the public key

unsigned int flags should be 0 for now

unsigned char * output_data will contain the key ID

size_t * output_data_size holds the size of output_data (and will be replaced by the actual size of parameters)

DESCRIPTION This function will return a unique ID the depends on the public key parameters. This ID can be used in checking whether a certificate cor- responds to the given public key.

If the buffer provided is not long enough to hold the output, then *output_data_size is updated and GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER will be returned. The output will normally be a SHA-1 hash output, which is 20 bytes.

RETURN VALUE In case of failure a negative value will be returned, and 0 on success.
