gnutls_store_commitment - API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_store_commitment(const char * db_name, gnutls_tdb_t tdb, const char * host, const char * service, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo, const gnutls_datum_t * hash, time_t expiration, unsigned int flags);


const char * db_name
A file specifying the stored keys (use NULL for the default)
gnutls_tdb_t tdb
A storage structure or NULL to use the default
const char * host
The peer's name
const char * service
non-NULL if this key is specific to a service (e.g. http)
gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo
The hash algorithm type
const gnutls_datum_t * hash
The raw hash
time_t expiration
The expiration time (use 0 to disable expiration)
unsigned int flags
should be 0.


This function will store the provided hash commitment to the list of stored public keys. The key with the given hash will be considered valid until the provided expiration time.

The store variable if non-null specifies a custom backend for the storage of entries. If it is NULL then the default file backend will be used.

Note that this function is not thread safe with the default backend.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
