NAME         top

       gnutls_cipher_suite_get_name - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       const char * gnutls_cipher_suite_get_name(gnutls_kx_algorithm_t
       kx_algorithm, gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher_algorithm,
       gnutls_mac_algorithm_t mac_algorithm);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_kx_algorithm_t kx_algorithm
                   is a Key exchange algorithm

       gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher_algorithm
                   is a cipher algorithm

       gnutls_mac_algorithm_t mac_algorithm
                   is a MAC algorithm

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function returns the ciphersuite name under TLS1.2 or
       earlier versions when provided with individual algorithms. The
       full cipher suite name must be prepended by TLS or SSL depending
       of the protocol in use.

       To get a description of the current ciphersuite across versions,
       it is recommended to use gnutls_session_get_desc().

RETURNS         top

       a string that contains the name of a TLS cipher suite, specified
       by the given algorithms, or NULL.
