gnutls_init — API function

Synopsis

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_init(gnutls_session_t * session, unsigned int flags);

Arguments

gnutls_session_t * session
is a pointer to a gnutls_session_t type.
unsigned int flags
indicate if this session is to be used for server or client.

Description

This function initializes the provided session. Every session must be initialized before use, and must be deinitialized after used by calling gnutls_deinit().

flags can be any combination of flags from gnutls_init_flags_t.

Note that since version 3.1.2 this function enables some common TLS extensions such as session tickets and OCSP certificate status request in client side by default. To prevent that use the GNUTLS_NO_EXTENSIONS flag.

Returns

GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
