NAME

       gnutls_x509_crt_get_pk_algorithm - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_get_pk_algorithm(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, unsigned int * bits);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crt_t structure

       unsigned int * bits
                   if bits is non null it will hold the size of the parameters' in bits

DESCRIPTION

       This function will return the public key algorithm of an X.509 certificate.

       If  bits  is non null, it should have enough size to hold the parameters size in bits. For
       RSA the bits returned is the modulus.  For  DSA  the  bits  returned  are  of  the  public
       exponent.

RETURNS

       a  member  of  the  gnutls_pk_algorithm_t  enumeration  on success, or a negative value on
       error.
