       int gnutls_pubkey_get_pk_algorithm(gnutls_pubkey_t key, unsigned
       int * bits);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_pubkey_t key
                   should contain a gnutls_pubkey_t type

       unsigned int * bits
                   If set will return the number of bits of the
                   parameters (may be NULL)
