NAME         top

       gnutls_sign_algorithm_get_requested - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_sign_algorithm_get_requested(gnutls_session_t session,
       size_t indx, gnutls_sign_algorithm_t * algo);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       size_t indx is an index of the signature algorithm to return

       gnutls_sign_algorithm_t * algo
                   the returned certificate type will be stored there

DESCRIPTION         top

       Returns the signature algorithm specified by index that was requested
       by the peer. If the specified index has no data available this
       function returns GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE.  If the
       negotiated TLS version does not support signature algorithms then
       GNUTLS_E_REQUESTED_DATA_NOT_AVAILABLE will be returned even for the
       first index.  The first index is 0.

       This function is useful in the certificate callback functions to
       assist in selecting the correct certificate.

RETURNS         top

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