       gnutls_credentials_set  - Sets the needed credentials for the specified
       authentication algorithm.


       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int          gnutls_credentials_set(gnutls_session_t           session,
       gnutls_credentials_type_t type, void * cred);


       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       gnutls_credentials_type_t type
                   is the type of the credentials

       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.
