NAME
       gnutls_fips140_set_mode - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void gnutls_fips140_set_mode(gnutls_fips_mode_t mode, unsigned flags);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_fips_mode_t mode
                   the FIPS140-2 mode to switch to

       unsigned flags
                   should be zero or GNUTLS_FIPS140_SET_MODE_THREAD

DESCRIPTION
       That function is not thread-safe when changing the mode with no flags
       (globally), and should be called prior to creating any threads. Its
       behavior with no flags after threads are created is undefined.

       When the flag GNUTLS_FIPS140_SET_MODE_THREAD is specified then this call
       will change the FIPS140-2 mode for this particular thread and not for the
       whole process. That way an application can utilize this function to set
       and reset mode for specific operations.

       This function never fails but will be a no-op if used when the library is
       not in FIPS140-2 mode. When asked to switch to unknown values for  mode
       or to GNUTLS_FIPS140_SELFTESTS mode, the library switches to
       GNUTLS_FIPS140_STRICT mode.
