       gnutls_prf - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int  gnutls_prf(gnutls_session_t session, size_t label_size, const char
       * label, int  server_random_first,  size_t  extra_size,	const  char  *
       extra, size_t outsize, char * out);

       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       size_t label_size
		   length of the  label variable.

       const char * label
		   label used in PRF computation, typically a short string.

       int server_random_first
		   non-0 if server random field should be first in seed

       size_t extra_size
		   length of the  extra variable.

       const char * extra
		   optional extra data to seed the PRF with.

       size_t outsize
		   size of pre-allocated output buffer to hold the output.

       char * out  pre-allocated buffer to hold the generated data.

       Applies	the  TLS Pseudo-Random-Function (PRF) on the master secret and
       the provided data, seeded with the client and server random fields,  as
       specified in RFC5705.

       The   label variable usually contains a string denoting the purpose for
       the generated data.  The	  server_random_first  indicates  whether  the
       client  random  field or the server random field should be first in the
       seed.  Non-0 indicates that the server random field is  first,  0  that
       the client random field is first.

       The  extra variable can be used to add more data to the seed, after the
       random variables.  It can be used to make sure the generated output  is
       strongly connected to some additional data (e.g., a string used in user

       The output is placed in	out , which must be pre-allocated.

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
