NAME

gnutls_rehandshake - renegotiate security parameters  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_rehandshake(gnutls_session_t session);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls_session_t structure.
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will renegotiate security parameters with the client. This should only be called in case of a server.

This message informs the peer that we want to renegotiate parameters (perform a handshake).

If this function succeeds (returns 0), you must call the gnutls_handshake() function in order to negotiate the new parameters.

If the client does not wish to renegotiate parameters he will should with an alert message, thus the return code will be GNUTLS_E_WARNING_ALERT_RECEIVED and the alert will be GNUTLS_A_NO_RENEGOTIATION. A client may also choose to ignore this message.  

RETURNS

GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise an error.
