NAME gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits - API function

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_UNAC- CEPTABLE will be returned by the handshake.

This function has no effect in server side.
