gnutls_session_t session

is a gnutls_session_t type.


If the session supports length-hiding padding, you can invoke gnutls_record_send_range() to send a message whose length is hidden in the given range. If the session does not support length hiding padding, you can use the standard gnutls_record_send() function, or gnutls_record_send_range() making sure that the range is the same as the length of the message you are trying to send.


true (1) if the current session supports length-hiding padding, false (0) if the current session does not.
