NAME

       gnutls_fingerprint - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_fingerprint(gnutls_digest_algorithm_t algo, const gnutls_datum_t * data, void *
       result, size_t * result_size);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t algo
                   is a digest algorithm

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   is the data

       void * result
                   is the place where the result will be copied (may be null).

       size_t * result_size
                   should hold the size of the result. The actual size  of  the  returned  result
                   will also be copied there.

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  will  calculate  a  fingerprint (actually a hash), of the given data.  The
       result is not printable data.  You  should  convert  it  to  hex,  or  to  something  else
       printable.

       This  is  the  usual  way  to calculate a fingerprint of an X.509 DER encoded certificate.
       Note however that the fingerprint of an OpenPGP certificate is not just a hash and  cannot
       be calculated with this function.

RETURNS

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
