gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits — API function
unsigned int gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits(gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo, gnutls_sec_param_t param);
- gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo
is a public key algorithm
- gnutls_sec_param_t param
is a security parameter
When generating private and public key pairs a difficult question is which size of "bits" the modulus will be in RSA and the group size in DSA. The easy answer is 1024, which is also wrong. This function will convert a human understandable security parameter to an appropriate size for the specific algorithm.
The number of bits, or (0).
