gnutls_prf(3)				      gnutls				    gnutls_prf(3)

NAME
       gnutls_prf - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int  gnutls_prf(gnutls_session_t  session,  size_t  label_size,	const  char  * label, int
       server_random_first, size_t extra_size, const char * extra, size_t outsize, char * out);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       size_t label_size
		   length of the  label variable.

       const char * label
		   label used in PRF computation, typically a short string.

       int server_random_first
		   non-0 if server random field should be first in seed

       size_t extra_size
		   length of the  extra variable.

       const char * extra
		   optional extra data to seed the PRF with.

       size_t outsize
		   size of pre-allocated output buffer to hold the output.

       char * out  pre-allocated buffer to hold the generated data.

DESCRIPTION
       Apply the TLS Pseudo-Random-Function (PRF) on the master secret	and  the  provided  data,
       seeded with the client and server random fields.

       The  label variable usually contains a string denoting the purpose for the generated data.
       The  server_random_first indicates whether the client random field or  the  server  random
       field should be first in the seed.  Non-0 indicates that the server random field is first,
       0 that the client random field is first.

       The  extra variable can be used to add more data to the seed, after the random  variables.
       It  can be used to make sure the generated output is strongly connected to some additional
       data (e.g., a string used in user authentication).

       The output is placed in	out , which must be pre-allocated.

RETURNS
       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
