API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_random_art(gnutls_random_art_t type, const char * key_type, unsigned int key_size, void * fpr, size_t fpr_size, gnutls_datum_t * art);


gnutls_random_art_t type

The type of the random art (for now only GNUTLS_RANDOM_ART_OPENSSH is supported)

const char * key_type

The type of the key (RSA, DSA etc.)

unsigned int key_size

The size of the key in bits

void * fpr

The fingerprint of the key

size_t fpr_size

The size of the fingerprint

gnutls_datum_t * art

The returned random art


This function will convert a given fingerprint to an "artistic" image. The returned image is allocated using gnutls_malloc(), is null-terminated but art->size will not account the terminating null.


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
