                                             const char *propq);


PKCS12_decrypt_skey() Decrypt the PKCS#8 shrouded keybag contained within bag using the supplied password pass of length passlen.

PKCS12_decrypt_skey_ex() is similar to the above but allows for a library context ctx and property query propq to be used to select algorithm implementations.

Return Values

Both functions will return the decrypted key or NULL if an error occurred.

Conforming to

IETF RFC 7292 (<>)
