gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits - API function
void gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(gnutls_session_t session, unsigned int
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
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.
