gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(3)	    gnutls	   gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(3)

NAME
       gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits	- API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void  gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits(gnutls_session_t	session,  unsigned int
       bits);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t	session
		   is a	gnutls_session_t type.

       unsigned	int bits
		   is the number of bits

DESCRIPTION
       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 this function	will warn via the audit	log for	value that are
       believed	to be weak.

       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.
