gnutls_dh_params_generate2 − API function


, unsigned int int
gnutls_dh_params_generate2(gnutls_dh_params_t dparams

gnutls_dh_params_t dparams
            The parameters

unsigned int bits
            is the prime’s number of bits

This function will generate a new pair of prime and
generator for use in the Diffie−Hellman key exchange. The
new parameters will be allocated 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, it’s of
no use to call this in client side.

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a
negative error code is returned.
