NAME

gnutls_x509_crq_get_pk_algorithm - This function returns the certificate request's PublicKey algorithm  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/x509.h>

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

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t structure
unsigned int * bits
if bits is non null it will hold the size of the parameters' in bits
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will return the public key algorithm of a PKCS \fB10 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 a member of the gnutls_pk_algorithm_t enumeration on success, or a negative value on error.
