- gnutls_session_t session
- is a gnutls_session_t type.
- size_t label_size
- length of the label variable.
- const char * label
- label used in PRF computation, typically a short string.
- int server_random_first
- non-zero if server random field should be first in seed
- size_t extra_size
- length of the extra variable.
- const char * extra
- optional extra data to seed the PRF with.
- size_t outsize
- size of pre-allocated output buffer to hold the output.
- char * out
- pre-allocated buffer to hold the generated data.
Applies the TLS Pseudo-Random-Function (PRF) on the master secret and the
provided data, seeded with the client and server random fields. For the key
expansion specified in RFC5705 see gnutls_prf_rfc5705()
variable usually contains a string denoting the purpose for the
generated data. The server_random_first
indicates whether the client
random field or the server random field should be first in the seed. Non-zero
indicates that the server random field is first, 0 that the client random
field is first.
variable can be used to add more data to the seed, after the
random variables. It can be used to make sure the generated output is strongly
connected to some additional data (e.g., a string used in user
