gnutls_pubkey_export — API function


#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_pubkey_export(gnutls_pubkey_t key, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, void * output_data, size_t * output_data_size);


gnutls_pubkey_t key
Holds the certificate
gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
the format of output params. One of PEM or DER.
void * output_data
will contain a certificate PEM or DER encoded
size_t * output_data_size
holds the size of output_data (and will be replaced by the actual size of parameters)


This function will export the public key to DER or PEM format. The contents of the exported data is the SubjectPublicKeyInfo X.509 structure.

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.

If the structure is PEM encoded, it will have a header of "BEGIN CERTIFICATE".


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