NAME         top

       gnutls_kx_get - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       gnutls_kx_algorithm_t gnutls_kx_get(gnutls_session_t session);

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

DESCRIPTION         top

       Get the currently used key exchange algorithm.

       This function will return GNUTLS_KX_ECDHE_RSA, or
       GNUTLS_KX_DHE_RSA under TLS 1.3, to indicate an elliptic curve DH
       key exchange or a finite field one. The precise group used is
       available by calling gnutls_group_get() instead.

RETURNS         top

       gnutls_kx_algorithm_t value.
