NAMEgnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length - API function
- gnutls_session_t session
- is a gnutls_session_t structure.
- size_t max

DESCRIPTIONThis function will set the maximum size of all handshake messages. Handshakes over this size are rejected with GNUTLS_E_HANDSHAKE_TOO_LARGE error code. The default value is 128kb which is typically 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.
