gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits: API function
NAMEgnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits - API function
- gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo
- is a public key algorithm
- gnutls_sec_param_t param
- is a security parameter
DESCRIPTIONWhen generating private and public key pairs a difficult question is which size of "bits" the modulus will be in RSA and the group size in DSA. The easy answer is 1024, which is also wrong. This function will convert a human understandable security parameter to an appropriate size for the specific algorithm.
RETURNSThe number of bits, or (0).
