gnutls_cipher_suite_get_name - API function

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

const char * gnutls_cipher_suite_get_name(gnutls_kx_algorithm_t kx_algorithm, gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher_algorithm, gnutls_mac_algorithm_t mac_algorithm);

is a Key exchange algorithm
is a cipher algorithm
is a MAC algorithm

This function returns the ciphersuite name under TLS1.2 or earlier versions when provided with individual algorithms. The full cipher suite name must be prepended by TLS or SSL depending of the protocol in use.

To get a description of the current ciphersuite across versions, it is recommended to use gnutls_session_get_desc().
