Description [src]

Get a TLS certificate and private key pair.

This ensures a TLS certificate with the filename certificate.pem and private key with filename private.pem exist in a directory at path.

If either one doesn’t exist, a new certificate and private key pair will be generated. The common name will be set to a string returned by valent_device_generate_id().

If either generating or loading the certificate fails, NULL will be returned with error set.

Available since: 1.0



Type: const char*

A directory path.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
The value is a platform-native string, using the preferred OS encoding on Unix and UTF-8 on Windows.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the function if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.
