NAME
       gnutls_dh_params_generate2 - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_dh_params_generate2(gnutls_dh_params_t dparams, unsigned int
       bits);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_dh_params_t dparams
                   The parameters

       unsigned int bits
                   is the prime's 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 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.

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