NAME         top

       gnutls_pk_bits_to_sec_param - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       gnutls_pk_bits_to_sec_param(gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo, unsigned
       int bits);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo
                   is a public key algorithm

       unsigned int bits
                   is the number of bits

DESCRIPTION         top

       This is the inverse of gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits(). Given an
       algorithm and the number of bits, it will return the security
       parameter. This is a rough indication.

RETURNS         top

       The security parameter.
