void * cred is a pointer to a structure.
Sets the needed credentials for the specified type. Eg username,
password - or public and private keys etc. The cred parameter is a
structure that depends on the specified type and on the current session
(client or server).
In order to minimize memory usage, and share credentials between
several threads gnutls keeps a pointer to cred, and not the whole cred
structure. Thus you will have to keep the structure allocated until
you call gnutls_deinit().
For GNUTLS_CRD_ANON, cred should be gnutls_anon_client_credentials_t in
case of a client. In case of a server it should be
For GNUTLS_CRD_SRP, cred should be gnutls_srp_client_credentials_t in
case of a client, and gnutls_srp_server_credentials_t, in case of a
For GNUTLS_CRD_CERTIFICATE, cred should be
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (zero) is returned, otherwise an error
code is returned.
