gnutls_certificate_set_dh_params — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

void gnutls_certificate_set_dh_params(gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res, gnutls_dh_params_t dh_params);


gnutls_certificate_credentials_t res

is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type

gnutls_dh_params_t dh_params

the Diffie-Hellman parameters.


This function will set the Diffie-Hellman parameters for a certificate server to use. These parameters will be used in Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman cipher suites.  Note that only a pointer to the parameters are stored in the certificate handle, so you must not deallocate the parameters before the certificate is deallocated.


This function is unnecessary and discouraged on GnuTLS 3.6.0 or later. Since 3.6.0, DH parameters are negotiated following RFC7919.
