bug#33780: network-stream.el: network-stream-certificate always returns


From: Robert Pluim
Subject: bug#33780: network-stream.el: network-stream-certificate always returns nil
Date: Wed, 09 Jan 2019 11:48:46 +0100

Following discussion on emacs-devel on how to do this, latest version
of patch attached. This maintains backwards compatibility for
open-gnutls-stream (assuming I haven't screwed up the checks), and
updates the relevant documentation.

Subject: [PATCH] Check for client certificates when using GnuTLS
To: address@hidden

This fixes Bug#33780, and extends the documentation to describe how to
enable use of client certificates.

* lisp/net/network-stream.el (network-stream-certificate): Correct
order of parameters to plist-get.
(network-stream-open-tls): Pass all received parameters to
open-gnutls-stream as plist, not just :nowait.

* lisp/net/gnutls.el (open-gnutls-stream): Change optional nowait arg
to be plist.  Derive nowait and client certificate(s) and keys(s) from
plist (maybe via auth-source) and pass to gnutls-boot-parameters and
gnutls-negotiate.
(network-stream-certificate): Add declare-function form for it.

* doc/misc/auth.texi (Help for users): Describe format to use for
client key/cert specification.

* doc/misc/emacs-gnutls.texi (Help For Developers): Describe usage of
optional plist argument.  Add crossreference to description of
.authinfo format for client key/cert specification.

* etc/NEWS: Describe new client certificate functionality for
  'open-network-stream'.
