gnutls_cipher_suite_info — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

const char * gnutls_cipher_suite_info(size_t idx, unsigned char * cs_id, gnutls_kx_algorithm_t * kx, gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t * cipher, gnutls_mac_algorithm_t * mac, gnutls_protocol_t * min_version);


size_t idx
index of cipher suite to get information about, starts on 0.
unsigned char * cs_id
output buffer with room for 2 bytes, indicating cipher suite value
gnutls_kx_algorithm_t * kx
output variable indicating key exchange algorithm, or NULL.
gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t * cipher
output variable indicating cipher, or NULL.
gnutls_mac_algorithm_t * mac
output variable indicating MAC algorithm, or NULL.
gnutls_protocol_t * min_version
output variable indicating TLS protocol version, or NULL.


Get information about supported cipher suites. Use the function iteratively to get information about all supported cipher suites. Call with idx=0 to get information about first cipher suite, then idx=1 and so on until the function returns NULL.


the name of idx cipher suite, and set the information about the cipher suite in the output variables. If idx is out of bounds, NULL is returned.
