ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher
                   the cipher

       gnutls_mac_algorithm_t mac
                   the MAC algorithm

       gnutls_compression_method_t comp
                   the compression method (ignored)

       const gnutls_datum_t * master

       This function sets the premaster secret in a session. This is a
       function intended for exceptional uses. Do not use this function
       unless you are implementing a legacy protocol.  Use
       gnutls_session_set_data() instead.
