gnutls_crypto_rnd_register2: register a random generator
NAMEgnutls_crypto_rnd_register2 - register a random generator
int gnutls_crypto_rnd_register2(int priority, int version, gnutls_crypto_rnd_st * s);
- int priority
- is the priority of the generator
- int version
- should be set to GNUTLS_CRYPTO_API_VERSION
- gnutls_crypto_rnd_st * s
- is a structure holding new generator's data
DESCRIPTIONThis function will register a random generator to be used by gnutls. Any generator registered will override the included generator and by convention kernel implemented generators have priority of 90. The generator with the lowest priority will be used by gnutls.
This function should be called before gnutls_global_init().
For simplicity you can use the convenience gnutls_crypto_rnd_register() macro.
RETURNSGNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise an error.
