NAME         top

       gnutls_set_default_priority - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_set_default_priority(gnutls_session_t session);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

DESCRIPTION         top

       Sets the default priority on the ciphers, key exchange methods, and
       macs. This is the recommended method of setting the defaults, in
       order to promote consistency between applications using GnuTLS, and
       to allow GnuTLS using applications to update settings in par with the
       library. For client applications which require maximum compatibility
       consider calling gnutls_session_enable_compatibility_mode() after
       this function.

       For an application to specify additional options to priority string
       consider using gnutls_set_default_priority_append().

       To allow a user to override the defaults (e.g., when a user interface
       or configuration file is available), the functions
       gnutls_priority_set_direct() or gnutls_priority_set() can be used.

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
