gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_lengggnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length(3)

NAME
       gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length  -  set  the maximum size of the
       handshake

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void  gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length(gnutls_session_t  session,
       size_t max);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       size_t max  is the maximum number.

DESCRIPTION
       This  function  will  set  the  maximum size of all handshake messages.
       Handshakes  over	  this	 size	are   rejected	 with	GNUTLS_E_HAND‐
       SHAKE_TOO_LARGE	error  code.  The default value is 48kb which is typi‐
       cally large enough.  Set this to 0 if you do not want to set  an	 upper
       limit.

       The  reason  for	 restricting  the handshake message sizes are to limit
       Denial of Service attacks.
