SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_prf_raw(gnutls_session_t session, size_t label_size, const char * label, size_t seed_size, const char * seed, size_t outsize, char * out);

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t session is a gnutls_session_t type.
size_t label_size length of the label variable.
const char * label label used in PRF computation, typically a short string.
size_t seed_size length of the seed variable.
const char * seed optional extra data to seed the PRF with.
size_t outsize size of pre-allocated output buffer to hold the output.
char * out pre-allocated buffer to hold the generated data.

DESCRIPTION

Apply the TLS Pseudo-Random-Function (PRF) on the master secret and the provided data.

The label variable usually contains a string denoting the purpose for the generated data. The seed usually contains data such as the client and server random, perhaps together with some additional data that is added to guarantee uniqueness of the output for a particular purpose.

Because the output is not guaranteed to be unique for a particular session unless seed includes the client random and server random fields (the PRF would output the same data on another connection resumed from the first one), it is not recommended to use this function directly. The gnutls_prf() function seeds the PRF with the client and server random fields directly, and is recommended if you want to generate pseudo random data unique for each session.

RETURNS

GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
