NAME         top

       gnutls_compress_certificate_set_methods - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_compress_certificate_set_methods(gnutls_session_t
       session, const gnutls_compression_method_t * methods, size_t

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       const gnutls_compression_method_t * methods
                   is a list of supported compression methods.

       size_t methods_len
                   number of compression methods in  methods

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function sets the supported compression methods for
       certificate compression for the given session. The list of
       supported compression methods will be used for a) requesting the
       compression of peer's certificate and b) selecting the method to
       compress the local certificate before sending it to the peer.
       The order of compression methods inside the list does matter as
       the method that appears earlier in the list will be preferred
       before the later ones.  Note that even if you set the list of
       supported compression methods, the compression might not be used
       if the peer does not support any of your chosen compression

       The list of supported compression methods must meet the following
       criteria: Argument  methods must be an array of valid compression
       methods of type gnutls_compression_method_t. Argument
       methods_len must contain the number of compression methods stored
       in the  methods array and must be within range <1, 127>.  The
       length constraints are defined by
       MAX_COMPRESS_CERTIFICATE_METHODS macros located in the header
       file compress_certificate.h.

       If either  methods or  methods_len is equal to 0, current list of
       supported compression methods will be unset.

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code.

       Since 3.7.4
