NAME
       gnutls_privkey_generate - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/abstract.h>

       int gnutls_privkey_generate(gnutls_privkey_t pkey, gnutls_pk_algorithm_t
       algo, unsigned int bits, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_privkey_t pkey
                   The private 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.

DESCRIPTION
       This 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.

       Do not set the number of bits directly, use
       gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits().

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

SINCE
       3.3.0
