NAME

gnutls_srp_verifier - Used to calculate an SRP verifier  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_srp_verifier(const char * username, const char * password, const gnutls_datum_t * salt, const gnutls_datum_t * generator, const gnutls_datum_t * prime, gnutls_datum_t * res);  

ARGUMENTS

const char * username
is the user's name
const char * password
is the user's password
const gnutls_datum_t * salt
should be some randomly generated bytes
const gnutls_datum_t * generator
is the generator of the group
const gnutls_datum_t * prime
is the group's prime
gnutls_datum_t * res
where the verifier will be stored.
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will create an SRP verifier, as specified in RFC2945. The prime and generator should be one of the static parameters defined in gnutls/extra.h or may be generated using the libgcrypt functions gcry_prime_generate() and gcry_prime_group_generator().

The verifier will be allocated with malloc and will be stored in res using binary format.  

RETURNS

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, or an error code.
