       gnutls_x509_privkey_get_seed - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_privkey_get_seed(gnutls_x509_privkey_t key,
       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * digest, void * seed, size_t *

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_privkey_t type

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * digest
                   if non-NULL it will contain the digest algorithm used
                   for key generation (if applicable)

       void * seed where seed will be copied to

       size_t * seed_size
                   originally holds the size of  seed , will be updated
                   with actual size
