       gnutls_handshake_set_private_extensions - API function


       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void gnutls_handshake_set_private_extensions(gnutls_session_t session, int allow);


       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       int allow   is an integer (0 or 1)


       This function will enable or disable the use of private cipher suites (the ones that start
       with 0xFF).  By default or if allow is 0 then these cipher suites will not  be  advertized
       nor used.

       Unless  this  function  is  called  with  the  option  to  allow  (1), then no compression
       algorithms, like LZO.  That is because these algorithms are not yet defined in any RFC  or
       even internet draft.

       Enabling  the  private  ciphersuites when talking to other than gnutls servers and clients
       may cause interoperability problems.
