NAME

       gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length(gnutls_session_t session, size_t max);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       size_t max  is the maximum number.

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  will set the maximum size of all handshake messages.  Handshakes over this
       size are rejected with GNUTLS_E_HANDSHAKE_TOO_LARGE error  code.   The  default  value  is
       128kb  which  is typically large enough.  Set this to 0 if you do not want to set an upper
       limit.

       The reason for restricting the handshake message sizes are  to  limit  Denial  of  Service
       attacks.

       Note that the maximum handshake size was increased to 128kb from 48kb in GnuTLS 3.5.5.
