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.
