NAME         top

       gnutls_srp_verifier - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_srp_verifier(const char * username, const char *
       password, const gnutls_datum_t * salt, const gnutls_datum_t *
       generator, const gnutls_datum_t * prime, gnutls_datum_t * res);

ARGUMENTS         top

       const char * username
                   is the user's name

       const char * password
                   is the user's password

       const gnutls_datum_t * salt
                   should be some randomly generated bytes

       const gnutls_datum_t * generator
                   is the generator of the group

       const gnutls_datum_t * prime
                   is the group's prime

       gnutls_datum_t * res
                   where the verifier will be stored.

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will create an SRP verifier, as specified in
       RFC2945.  The  prime and  generator should be one of the static
       parameters defined in gnutls/gnutls.h or may be generated.

       The verifier will be allocated with @gnutls_malloc() and will be
       stored in
        res using binary format.

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, or an error code.
