NAME         top

       gnutls_random_art - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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);

ARGUMENTS         top

       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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

RETURNS         top

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