NAME

       gnutls_dh_params_generate2 - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_dh_params_generate2(gnutls_dh_params_t params, unsigned int bits);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_dh_params_t params
                   Is the structure that the DH parameters will be stored

       unsigned int bits
                   is the prime's number of bits

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  will  generate  a  new  pair  of  prime  and  generator  for  use  in  the
       Diffie-Hellman key exchange. The new parameters will be  allocated  using  gnutls_malloc()
       and will be stored in the appropriate datum.  This function is normally slow.

       Do  not set the number of bits directly, use gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits() to get bits for
       GNUTLS_PK_DSA.  Also note that the DH  parameters  are  only  useful  to  servers.   Since
       clients use the parameters sent by the server, it's of no use to call this in client side.

RETURNS

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