gnutls_record_get_state(3) API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_record_get_state(gnutls_session_t session, unsigned read, gnutls_datum_t * mac_key, gnutls_datum_t * IV, gnutls_datum_t * cipher_key, unsigned char seq_number[8]);


gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls_session_t type
unsigned read
if non-zero the read parameters are returned, otherwise the write
gnutls_datum_t * mac_key
the key used for MAC (if a MAC is used)
gnutls_datum_t * IV
the initialization vector or nonce used
gnutls_datum_t * cipher_key
the cipher key
unsigned char seq_number[8]
-- undescribed --


This function will return the parameters of the current record state. These are only useful to be provided to an external off-loading device or subsystem.

In that case, to sync the state you must call gnutls_record_set_state().


GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.

Since 3.4.0
