gnutls_pubkey_get_key_id(3) API function


#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

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


gnutls_pubkey_t key
Holds the public key
unsigned int flags
should be one of the flags from gnutls_keyid_flags_t
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)


This function will return a unique ID that depends on the public key parameters. This ID can be used in checking whether a certificate corresponds 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.


In case of failure a negative error code will be returned, and 0 on success.
