gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits - API function
void gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(gnutls_session_t session,
unsigned int bits);
- gnutls_session_t session
- is a gnutls_session_t type.
- unsigned int bits
- is the number of bits
This function sets the number of bits, for use in a Diffie-Hellman key exchange.
This is used both in DH ephemeral and DH anonymous cipher suites. This will
set the minimum size of the prime that will be used for the handshake.
In the client side it sets the minimum accepted number of bits. If a server
sends a prime with less bits than that GNUTLS_E_DH_PRIME_UNACCEPTABLE
will be returned by the handshake.
Note that this function will warn via the audit log for value that are believed
to be weak.
The function has no effect in server side.
Note that since 3.1.7 this function is deprecated. The minimum number of bits is
set by the priority string level. Also this function must be called after
or the set value may be overridden by the
selected priority options.
