NAME
       gnutls_rehandshake - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_rehandshake(gnutls_session_t session);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

DESCRIPTION
       This function will renegotiate security parameters with the client.  This
       should only be called in case of a server.

       This message informs the peer that we want to renegotiate parameters
       (perform a handshake).

       If this function succeeds (returns 0), you must call the
       gnutls_handshake() function in order to negotiate the new parameters.

       Since TLS is full duplex some application data might have been sent
       during peer's processing of this message. In that case one should call
       gnutls_record_recv() until GNUTLS_E_REHANDSHAKE is returned to clear any
       pending data. Care must be taken, if rehandshake is mandatory, to
       terminate if it does not start after some threshold.

       If the client does not wish to renegotiate parameters he should reply
       with an alert message, thus the return code will be
       GNUTLS_E_WARNING_ALERT_RECEIVED and the alert will be
       GNUTLS_A_NO_RENEGOTIATION.  A client may also choose to ignore this
       message.

RETURNS
       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code.
