NAME gnutls_handshake_set_private_extensions - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

void gnutls_handshake_set_private_extensions(gnutls_session_t session, int allow);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_session_t session is a gnutls_session_t structure.

int allow is an integer (0 or 1)

DESCRIPTION This function will enable or disable the use of private cipher suites (the ones that start with 0xFF). By default or if allow is 0 then these cipher suites will not be advertized nor used.

Unless this function is called with the option to allow (1), then no compression algorithms, like LZO. That is because these algorithms are not yet defined in any RFC or even internet draft.

Enabling the private ciphersuites when talking to other than gnutls servers and clients may cause interoperability problems.
