       gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void  gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(gnutls_session_t	session,  unsigned int

       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       unsigned int bits
		   is the number of bits

       This function sets the number of bits, for use in a Diffie-Hellman  key
       exchange.   This	 is  used both in DH ephemeral and DH anonymous cipher
       suites.	This will set the minimum size of the prime that will be  used
       for the handshake.

       In  the	client side it sets the minimum accepted number of bits.  If a
       server sends a prime with less bits than	 that  GNUTLS_E_DH_PRIME_UNAC‐
       CEPTABLE will be returned by the handshake.

       Note  that  values  lower  than	512  bits  may allow decryption of the
       exchanged data.

       The function has no effect in server side.

       Note that since 3.1.7 this function is deprecated. The  minimum	number
       of  bits	 is set by the priority string level.  Also this function must
       be called after gnutls_priority_set_direct() or the set	value  may  be
       overridden by the selected priority options.
