  • Stream - object to which the private key is saved
  • Password - the password to encrypt the key. If the key shouldn't be encrypted, set this parameter to empty string

Return value

    0 - if the key was successfully saved.
    Otherwise PKCS#8 error code.


    This method saves the private key to the provided stream. The private key will be saved in NET format. NET format was invented by Microsoft Corp. and is based on PKCS#8 private key format. However, it is not fully compatible with PKCS#8, so passing a buffer with raw PKCS#8 data will cause an 'invalid format' error.
