       gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8  -  This function will import a DER or
       PEM PKCS8 encoded key


       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8(gnutls_x509_privkey_t  key,  const
       gnutls_datum_t  *  data,  gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t  format,  const  char *
       password, unsigned int flags);


       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
                   The structure to store the parsed key

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   The DER or PEM encoded key.

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
                   One of DER or PEM

       const char * password
                   the password to decrypt the key (if it is encrypted).

       unsigned int flags
                   0 if encrypted or GNUTLS_PKCS_PLAIN if not encrypted.


       This function will convert the given  DER  or  PEM  encoded  PKCS8  2.0
       encrypted  key  to  the native gnutls_x509_privkey_t format. The output
       will be stored in key.  Both RSA and DSA  keys  can  be  imported,  and
       flags can only be used to indicate an unencrypted key.

       The  password  can  be  either  ASCII  or  UTF-8  in  the default PBES2
       encryption schemas, or ASCII for the PKCS12 schemas.

       If the Certificate is PEM encoded it should have a header of "ENCRYPTED
       PRIVATE  KEY",  or "PRIVATE KEY". You only need to specify the flags if
       the key is DER encoded, since in that case the encryption status cannot
       be auto-detected.


       On  success,  GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS  is returned, otherwise a negative error
