NAME

gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits - Used to set the bits for a DH ciphersuite  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

void gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(gnutls_session_t session, unsigned int bits);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls_session_t structure.
unsigned int bits
is the number of bits
 

DESCRIPTION

This function sets the number of bits, for use in an Diffie-Hellman key exchange. This is used both in DH ephemeral and DH anonymous cipher suites. This will set the minimum size of the prime that will be used for the handshake.

In the client side it sets the minimum accepted number of bits. If a server sends a prime with less bits than that GNUTLS_E_DH_PRIME_UNACCEPTABLE will be returned by the handshake.

This function has no effect in server side.
