NAME gnutls_dh_params_generate2 - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_dh_params_generate2(gnutls_dh_params_t params, unsigned int bits);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_dh_params_t params Is the structure that the DH parameters will be stored

unsigned int bits is the primes number of bits

DESCRIPTION This function will generate a new pair of prime and generator for use in the Diffie-Hellman key exchange. The new parameters will be allo- cated using gnutls_malloc() and will be stored in the appropriate datum. This function is normally slow.

Do not set the number of bits directly, use gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits() to get bits for GNUTLS_PK_DSA. Also note that the DH parameters are only useful to servers. Since clients use the parameters sent by the server, its of no use to call this in client side.

RETURNS On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (zero) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
