SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       const gnutls_datum_t * random
                   a random value of 32-bytes

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will explicitly set the server or client hello
       random value in the subsequent TLS handshake. The random value
       should be a 32-byte value.

       Note that this function should not normally be used as gnutls
       will select automatically a random value for the handshake.

       This function should not be used when resuming a session.

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.

       Since 3.1.9
