gnutls_dh_params_generate2(3)	    gnutls	 gnutls_dh_params_generate2(3)

NAME
       gnutls_dh_params_generate2 - generate new DH parameters

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 allo‐
       cated using gnutls_malloc() and	will  be  stored  in  the  appropriate
       datum.  This function is normally slow.

       Note  that  the	bits  value  should be one of 768, 1024, 2048, 3072 or
       4096.  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.
