       gnutls_dh_params_generate2 - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_dh_params_generate2(gnutls_dh_params_t params, unsigned int bits);

       gnutls_dh_params_t params
		   Is the structure that the DH parameters will be stored

       unsigned int bits
		   is the prime's number of bits

       This  function will generate a new pair of prime and generator for use in the Diffie-Hell-
       man key exchange. The new parameters will be allocated using gnutls_malloc() and  will  be
       stored in the appropriate datum.  This function is normally slow.

       Do  not set the number of bits directly, use gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits() to get bits for
       GNUTLS_PK_DSA.  Also note that the DH  parameters  are  only  useful  to  servers.   Since
       clients use the parameters sent by the server, it's of no use to call this in client side.

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