gnutls_kx_get - Man Page

API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

gnutls_kx_algorithm_t gnutls_kx_get(gnutls_session_t session);


gnutls_session_t session

is a gnutls_session_t type.


Get the currently used key exchange algorithm.

This function will return GNUTLS_KX_ECDHE_RSA, or GNUTLS_KX_DHE_RSA under TLS 1.3, to indicate an elliptic curve DH key exchange or a finite field one. The precise group used is available by calling gnutls_group_get() instead.


the key exchange algorithm used in the last handshake, a gnutls_kx_algorithm_t value.
