NAME

gnutls_dh_get_prime_bits - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_dh_get_prime_bits(gnutls_session_t session);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls session
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will return the bits of the prime used in the last Diffie-Hellman key exchange with the peer. Should be used for both anonymous and ephemeral Diffie-Hellman. Note that some ciphers, like RSA and DSA without DHE, do not use a Diffie-Hellman key exchange, and then this function will return 0.  

RETURNS

The Diffie-Hellman bit strength is returned, or 0 if no Diffie-Hellman key exchange was done, or a negative error code on failure.
