NAME

gnutls_fingerprint - This function calculates the fingerprint of the given data  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_fingerprint(gnutls_digest_algorithm_t algo, const gnutls_datum_t * data, void * result, size_t * result_size);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_digest_algorithm_t algo
is a digest algorithm
const gnutls_datum_t * data
is the data
void * result
is the place where the result will be copied (may be null).
size_t * result_size
should hold the size of the result. The actual size of the returned result will also be copied there.
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will calculate a fingerprint (actually a hash), of the given data. The result is not printable data. You should convert it to hex, or to something else printable.

This is the usual way to calculate a fingerprint of an X.509 DER encoded certificate. Note however that the fingerprint of an OpenPGP is not just a hash and cannot be calculated with this function.

Returns a negative value in case of an error.
