gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits - API function
unsigned int gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits(gnutls_pk_algorithm_t
algo, gnutls_sec_param_t param);
- gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo
- is a public key algorithm
- gnutls_sec_param_t param
- is a security parameter
When generating private and public key pairs a difficult question is which size
of "bits" the modulus will be in RSA and the group size in DSA. The
easy answer is 1024, which is also wrong. This function will convert a human
understandable security parameter to an appropriate size for the specific
The number of bits, or (0).
