Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

QSslKey provides a simple API for managing keys.

class QSslKey

QSslKey(device, algorithm[, format=QSsl.Pem[, type=QSsl.PrivateKey[, passPhrase=QByteArray()]]])

QSslKey(handle[, type=QSsl.PrivateKey])

param handle

HANDLE

param encoded

QByteArray

Constructs a null key.

See also

isNull()

Constructs a QSslKey from a valid native key handle . type specifies whether the key is public or private.

QSslKey will take ownership for this key and you must not free the key using the native library.

Constructs an identical copy of other .

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.algorithm()
Return type

KeyAlgorithm

Returns the key algorithm.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.clear()

Clears the contents of this key, making it a null key.

See also

isNull()

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.handle()
Return type

HANDLE

Returns a pointer to the native key handle, if there is one, else None .

You can use this handle together with the native API to access extended information about the key.

Warning

Use of this function has a high probability of being non-portable, and its return value may vary across platforms, and between minor Qt releases.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.isNull()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this is a null key; otherwise false.

See also

clear()

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.length()
Return type

int

Returns the length of the key in bits, or -1 if the key is null.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.__ne__(key)
Parameters

keyQSslKey

Return type

bool

Returns true if this key is not equal to key other ; otherwise returns false .

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.__eq__(key)
Parameters

keyQSslKey

Return type

bool

Returns true if this key is equal to other ; otherwise returns false .

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.swap(other)
Parameters

otherQSslKey

Swaps this ssl key with other . This function is very fast and never fails.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.toDer([passPhrase=QByteArray()])
Parameters

passPhraseQByteArray

Return type

QByteArray

Returns the key in DER encoding.

The passPhrase argument should be omitted as DER cannot be encrypted. It will be removed in a future version of Qt.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.toPem([passPhrase=QByteArray()])
Parameters

passPhraseQByteArray

Return type

QByteArray

Returns the key in PEM encoding. The result is encrypted with passPhrase if the key is a private key and passPhrase is non-empty.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslKey.type()
Return type

KeyType

Returns the type of the key (i.e., PublicKey or PrivateKey).
