NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_get_pk_algorithm - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crq_get_pk_algorithm(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq,
       unsigned int * bits);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type

       unsigned int * bits
                   if bits is non-NULL it will hold the size of the
                   parameters' in bits

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will return the public key algorithm of a PKCS10
       certificate request.

       If bits is non-NULL, it should have enough size to hold the
       parameters size in bits.  For RSA the bits returned is the
       modulus.  For DSA the bits returned are of the public exponent.

RETURNS         top

       a member of the gnutls_pk_algorithm_t enumeration on success, or
       a negative error code on error.
