int gnutls_x509_privkey_generate(gnutls_x509_privkey_t key, gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo, unsigned int bits, unsigned int flags);
- gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
- a key
- gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo
- is one of the algorithms in gnutls_pk_algorithm_t.
- unsigned int bits
- the size of the modulus
- unsigned int flags
- unused for now. Must be 0.
DESCRIPTIONThis function will generate a random private key. Note that this function must be called on an empty private key.
Note that when generating an elliptic curve key, the curve can be substituted in the place of the bits parameter using the GNUTLS_CURVE_TO_BITS() macro.
For DSA keys, if the subgroup size needs to be specified check the GNUTLS_SUBGROUP_TO_BITS() macro.
Do not set the number of bits directly, use gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits().
RETURNSOn success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
